Not All Shopping Is Fun

Most women would agree that some shopping is fun…

  • Browsing the mall for new shoes to wear on date night? FUN.
  • Stocking up on Cheerios, toilet paper and light bulbs? BORING.

Sadly, we moms (and dads) spend a depressing percentage of our lives restocking our household “pantries”. We have to make sure we don’t run out of our kids’ favorite waffles, batteries for their countless electronic gadgets and everything in between.

Well, I have good news…

Lindsay has made it easier!

Shelf Scouter ScanningSince you can use either the website or the mobile app, you have a few different options for initially filling up your “shelves” with the items you routinely purchase.

The website makes it easy to search for products, browse quickly through images and click to add them to your shelves.

The mobile app has a scan option that lets you easily scan your current items to add them to your shelves. One idea is to scan various items while you’re at the store shopping.

Once you add an item to your pantry, you can select whether to add it to your Amazon, WalMart or Local Store shopping lists. You’ll be able to see the price options at each so you can save money. Then, you can place an order using your own account.

  1. Lisa Brown says

    I like that Shelf Scouter quickly helps you decide whether online or local shopping is the better choice.

  2. ginette4 says

    I love how easy it is and the fact that something either than me can keep track of what is needed on our next grocery visit…I always forget my grocery list at home and then I have to go back and purchase what I missed on my shopping trip

  3. Kelly D says

    I like that it is paperless and helps me keep track of what I need, and it can find you savings online.

  4. Amanda Sakovitz says

    I love that they show whether or not the item is at your local store for convenience purposes.

  5. Nicole Dz says

    My favorite thing is that the mobile app has a scan option that lets you easily scan your current items to add them to your shelves, or while out shopping at the store.

  6. Janet W. says

    The scan option that lets you easily scan your current items to add them to your shelves is my favorite feature!

  7. Heather B says

    I love being able to keep an inventory. I am always forgetting whether I have something at home or not

  8. Linda Kish says

    It would keep me aware of what I had on hand at home. I am always forgetting what I need and what I have.

  9. Jeanna says

    How cool! My favorite feature is the scan option that lets you easily scan your current items to add them to your shelves!

  10. Georgia Beckman says

    This is fantastic! I signed up & have already added several items to my list, including eggs, milk, butter & green peppers.

  11. Natalie F says

    I love that it is free and tells you if the item is at your local store or not. And that it can be used on desktop and mobile devices.

  12. Wendy says

    I LOVE the clean look and the colors of the site! Can’t wait to see how my first shopping trip goes!

  13. says

    I love the organization and easy way of scanning items into a shopping list. I am always with my phone when I text I can scan what I am running low on .

  14. Tammy S says

    I like that you can choose to order online or pick it up at your local grocery store. There are certian items that I always buy online because I can’t find it locally. So that would save me some time.

  15. Matt Stringham says

    I love the inventory idea. I will never have to wonder if I am out of chicken broth and forget to buy it again!!

  16. Amy M says

    If I had a dollar for every time I buy something I already have … I’d have a lot of dollars. I love the way this app would protect me from myself by keeping track of what’s on my shelves.

  17. Rebecca Parsons says

    I love that you can scan your items and put the on the shelf. You will know what you have and don’t have. Such a neat idea.

  18. Denice P says

    There are 2 things that I like about it. first is that it can be downloaded on Android and second it that it gives the person to shop locally.

  19. jenn huey says

    If I understand how it works correctly I like that you can place a needed item to a shopping list and you can have several lists each for different stores. I don’t like getting meat at Walmart so that would go on my local store list

  20. Klydra Pugh says

    I like that it shows price comparisons when you’re ready to purchase an item.
    Thanks for the chance.

  21. Stacey b says

    As an avid Amazon shopper I love everything this app does! I’d love to be able to scan things in store so when I get home I know what I need to order.

  22. Sunnymay says

    I like that it reads the bar codes on products and the first time I saw this was on a Home Makeover show on TV. It had a scanner that read the bar code to tell the blind client what it was.

  23. Ashley O. says

    The grocery list feature, I ALWAYS end up forgetting either the list or forgetting something, this would come in handy
