grocery store shopping list

There's a good chance you've gone paperless with your bags at the grocery store, so why not go paperless with your shopping list?


How many times have you made a grocery shopping list and then forgotten it on the kitchen counter? With the ShoppingList app for iPad ($2.99), your odds of making that mistake go down considerably. This app can sort your items according to category (dairy, canned items, etc.), cutting down the number of times you have to go all the way back across the store because you forgot something.

If there's a specific brand name item you need to restock, use the app's built-in barcode scanner while you're at home in your pantry, and you'll have all the relevant info at the supermarket, too. Input prices as you shop, and the app will keep track of your total. Plus, there's an option to e-mail the list to someone else if they're doing the shopping for you [source: Kline]. ShoppingList is a very handy app that will help get you out of the store with minimal fuss -- and home in time for dinner.
