    We’ve fallen in love with the Our Groceries app in our household when meal planning. You can have different lists for different stores so that you are more efficient. If it’s not on the list, it doesn’t get purchased. We also just constantly add to it when we run out of something (which keeps us from overbuying because we can’t remember if we ran out or already replaced it, etc)

    Both my husband and I have it on our phones so that when we go to the store as a family, we can divide and conquer. You can also store recipes in there to add ingredients to your list quickly!

      That’s amazing Stephanie! Thanks for the tip!

    • Ooooooh! I love that idea, too, Stephanie. We’ve used shared apps before, but I always resort back to paper, for some reason. I’ll definitely check this one out because I know it could save time AND money! I bet since it’s designed specifically for grocery lists, it’s super easy to use!
