JewelPie shared the top five apps for creating a shopping list in your smart phone. Today I’m going to show you how I personally use one of the app.
I fall under the ‘organized and busy’ shopper category and I find Tap Groceries works for my lifestyle. What’s important for me is that I get everything that I want in a systematic and quick manner.
PREPARING TO SHOP…
1. Create different shopping list
I create different shopping list according to shops e.g supermarket, pharmacy, etc. When I visit the supermarket I just need to check my list to see what I need to get there.
2. Adding items into according to categories
I buy different things in different shops. In each shop, I will add all items I normally buy. They are also divided into categories.
4. Shop according to aisle
All supermarkets are organized according to different products such as ‘Dairy’ and ‘Frozen Food’. At one aisle, I know everything I need e.g butter, milk and yoghurt the Dairy section. It helps avoid having to come back to the section again because I forgot something.
5. Strike off items
Striking off the items one by one allows me to see what is remaining in my shopping list. When nothing is left, I know I’ve completed my shopping and its time to go.
6. Add to-buy into phone
When I’m in the kitchen and realize that I’m running low on something, I’ll immediately add it in my phone. By the time I go to the supermarket, I would already have a list of all the things I need to buy stored in my phone.
I like this app as it allows me to add new categories for easy organization, it is user-friendly and has a huge database of products so I don’t have to key in one by one.
