Grocery Store Shopping List Phone Ap Iphone
This blog post is really targeted for everyone, but my intention was to serve those salon owners that are busy raising a family while simultaneously building their salon business.  Moms and dads, I still can’t figure out how you do it. Some days, I feel like I can barely take care of myself, let alone feed a few additional hungry mouths.

 

So, to the parents out there raising families, this blog post’s for you!

 

I remember, not too long ago,  going to the grocery store and quietly noticing how other shoppers were keeping track of their grocery lists. I felt like I was the only one using my smart phone to efficiently check off items on my list. Now, you only see an occasional shopper with a pen and scratch sheet of paper. I’ve tried a dozen or so grocery list apps over the years, but none come close to Grocerytrip, the only iPhone app that turns Evernote recipes into a shopping list.

 

Evernote is great for so many things, but if you also use it for grocery lists, GroceryTrip can make your life much easier. Simply tag a recipe you want to make with “grocerytrip,” and the app will automatically scan all of your clippings, extract the ingredients for those recipes, and organize them into a shopping list you can refer to on your phone. It’s that simple—all you have to do is tag the recipes you want to make, and then add the extra things you want to pick up.

 

Things to consider:
The easiest way to import recipes into Evernote is to use the Evernote Web Clipper.  Just be sure that if you clip a recipe from a blog post, to go into the note after it’s clipped and delete all of the comments in the note. Otherwise, Grocerytrip will add the comments as items on your grocery list in the Grocerytrip app. This is a little annoying and requires an extra step when compiling your grocery list. 

 

Grocerytrip is designed to parse grocery items from clipped webpages and text based Evernote notes. It will not parse PDF files or images of recipes.

 

 
Grocerytrip is currently only available for the iPhone.

 

 
Bonus:
* Items automatically organized by grocery aisle
* Combines items when needed
* User customizable grocery aisles
* Option to email or print out grocery list

    Hi Chris, enjoyed this blog! And as a mom and busy editor, I have another tech tool that’s recently helped with grocery shopping. My 16-year-old son saved six months of birthday money and allowance and purchased an Apple Watch. With my permission, he uploaded my credit card and now after school, I text him a list and he shops for me!

    Not sure if this string is still monitored but I have been a big fan of grocerytrip for some time but now it doesn’t work. Is it no longer supported?
