5 Grocery Shopping Apps! No More ‘Extra’ Tomato Puree!

With all the gizmo’s and apps we use these days, and with smartphones keeping the internet with us at all times… Isn’t there some way of using the internet to reduce the amount of half used tubes of tomato puree that accumulate in the fridge door?

Sure there is, surely an app for that- well probably not specifically for counting half used tubes of tomato pure perse, but to help save money on groceries by allowing u to only buy what we need.

Here are the top five apps for saving money on groceries, or at least keeping the fridge a lil less cluttered!

1. OurGroceries 

OurGroceries lets you keep a single set of grocery lists for your family or household. Everyone can edit these lists on their mobile phone or web browser. Whenever anyone modifies a list, everyone else sees the changes right away.

For example, you might be at work and remember that you’re out of coffee. You use the OurGroceries application on your mobile phone to add it to the list. If your partner happens to go to the store later that day, they’ll see the new item on their mobile phone and pick up some coffee. Once they do so, they can cross it off the list and it will be crossed off on your list too, automatically!
