I don’t know about you but I can always use some help when shopping – especially at the grocery store! I saw something posted on Weight Watchers Supermarket Foods Facebook page that got me thinking about all the great help we have available to us so I thought I’d list some of my favs here:
- Hungry Girl’s Official 2012 Supermarket List (this is what got me thinking)
- Skinnytaste.com – one of my favorite web sites for recipes but it also has a shopping list feature which leads me to
- ZipList – which is not only a web site but they have an app for your Android or iPhone (love this app use it every week – some of the cool features is it allows you to scan UPC symbol on packages and will automatically enter them into your shopping list, being able to select my store [Giant Food] so things are grouped according to how they arrange the store, being able to list the number of items I need (6 cans of chicken broth), price and size plus a lot more)
- Weight Watchers Barcode Scanner (available for iPhone & Android) – LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this! It is a time saver in the supermarket. The other day I was trying to find string cheese that was only 1 pt, so I was able to scan the UPC code and the app did the rest! It told me how many points and gave me the option to track it. It also keeps a history of items I scan and I can add them to a shopping list.
So if you are like me and love how technology can help you (okay when it works or we aren’t doing it wrong) then I suggest you try some of these to see if they don’t make your next shopping trip a bit easier.
