What is Grocery List?

Grocery List is the smart new way to organize and share your shopping lists so you can get in and out of the store quickly. Easily sort lists by aisle so you know what you need to get and exactly where you can find each item. Do you see a recipe you want to make from KitchenDaily? Simply add the ingredients to your Grocery List and you’ll never again have to run back to the store for another can of chicken stock.


FAQs


How do I add items to My Grocery List?

It’s easy – just type what you want in the entry box and click Add or hit <Enter> on your keyboard. Grocery List recognizes many standard quantities, sizes and packages. Just type what you need and Grocery List will try to figure it out.


Note: If you'd like items to display on a single line, separate them with semicolons.


 

How do I delete an item?

To delete multiple items, click the check boxes next to the items you want to delete and then click Delete on the menu bar above your list. No worries if you change your mind – Grocery List has a built-in undo capability, so you can always get your deleted items back.


 

How do I change the category of my items?

As smart as Grocery List is, it can't read your mind (yet).

There, you can change the category from the selection box; then just click Okay to return to your list.

How do I indicate quantities of an item?

Type the quantities (as well as sizes, packages, etc.) just as if you were writing them down on a piece of paper. For example, if you were to type “2 lg bags of chips,” Grocery List would recognize that “2” is the quantity, “lg” is the size, “bags” is the type of package and “chips” is the actual item. See, told you Grocery List is smart!

How do I only show important items on My Grocery List?
