Grocery Guru – Shopping Efficiency in an App

by Lolli

Just yesterday, I started making a shopping list with random things that I needed to get at the store. Once I got to the store I realized that there was no list in sight.

Grocery GuruHave you ever noticed that it’s “easy” to remember the ingredients for a meal but even more easy to forget to pick up those “extras” like contact solution or ketchup or Parmesan cheese?

For me, the answer is A LOT.

I end up making multiple trips to the store because I either forget to write things down on my list, I don’t make a list at all, or I lose the list that I’ve started. Completely inefficient.

Enter Grocery Guru

Grocery Guru is a free mobile app that allows you to create customized grocery lists on your cell phone that you can then sync with your computer. Here’s a quick video with some of the features of the Grocery Guru app and how it can help you get grocery shopping done efficiently:


Grocery Guru Blog

Need some tips, ideas, or inspiration? The Grocery Guru blog is a great resource with seasonal articles such as Adding Fall Flavors to Ordinary Meals and Six Energy Boosts for Shorter Days. And for those nervous about cooking for the holiday crowd – 8 Tips for Preparing a Perfect Holiday Dinner.

The Grocery Guru blog also has great year round tips for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. My favorite? Brown Baggin’ It with Style: Lunch Ideas to Satisfy the Whole Family. I’ve been stuck in a lunch-time rut and have needed some inspiration, so this was wonderful!
