Remember, the shopping list? That small piece of paper with 2-3 different authors, scribbles, cross outs and last minute additions that some person in your family was supposed to miraculously keep track of and, more importantly, know where to go to buy all of these items? It’s time to move over and let technology save you time and money.
Keeping a family supplied with all of their various needs is time consuming, potentially frustrating, and can be costly. The use of an electronic list application for your mobile device allows you to share the list, ensure you take advantage of discounts, keep to your budget, and help manage the hectic last minute items. Have a . . . relaxed next trip to the store and leave the pen & paper at home!
