Need help staying on top of your grocery budget? This grocery list app will not only help you do that, but it will store your custom pricing! Which means, you can plan out futures grocery trips budget before even heading to the store!
I’m totally digging this new app! The Tomato Grocery App has become my one and only grocery list tool! I came across it one day when I was trying to find something that let me not just make my grocery list, but also allowed me to keep tabs on my total while I was shopping!
I’m one of those people who just do not like surprises when I get to the register. I usually have my notepad and pencil in hand while shopping. I jot down prices x quantity next to each item, and total it out a few times during my grocery shopping trip.
Who’s the app for?
- Budget conscious folks
- People living on a super tight budget
- People planning for an event or holiday
- And ummm…everyone!
On my first grocery shopping trip with this app I jotted first made a list of everything I needed to buy. I wasn’t sure of the pricing so I just left that blank. While I collected the items into my cart, I updated the pricing.
The app updated my total as I checked things off the list! It’s so neat!
I saved that list to my shopping history for reference. Now, each time I’m about to go to the grocery store I’ll import that list to a new one, adjust accordingly and head out to the store!
How to use it
Add an item to your list by clicking the big green plus sign.
It has preset categories if you want to look through those…
but if you just type out Milk (or whatever), it will populate the item.
Once you add it to your list click on the pencil…
and update quantity and cost per unit. It then tells you how much it will cost right there.
Here’s what a list would look like. It tells you how much your total items will be (bottom right) if you were to buy them all. It even offers suggestions based on items on the list.
As you add items to your cart and check them off the list they’ll be bumped down to the bottom
At the bottom of the list you’ll see a running total. I love this because sometimes I’ll add an extra box of crackers or something, which wasn’t initially calculated in my estimated total. When I grab something extra I just update the quantities or add the item to the list, and I’m able to see how much it added to my total.
You can share the list via email too!
Or you can send it via text!
So if the hubs is coming home from work and you need him to pick some things up, just send him this list! He doesn’t need the app to access it! It goes through just as any other text!
Get the App
As I mentioned at the beginning of this post, you can see your shopping history too. This will help you plan accordingly for your next grocery run!! I just import that master list to a new one and adjust it accordingly. We buy just about the same things each grocery trip, give or take a few items, so for me this works perfectly!
Using the Tomatoes App Grocery List has cut my grocery list making time by less than half.
Let me know if you try it out!! I’m sure you’re going to love it!
