At any given moment my phone has 4 apps operating. Calendar, Notes, AnyList, and MyFitnessPal.
I’ve mentioned my way of menu planning on Notes in my previous post here. That’s the main reason I keep the Calendar and Notes apps open. When you hold your meal plan loosely you alter it frequently based on need.
MyFitnessPal is my second calorie counting app I’ve used. I was using Everyday Food, but MyFitnessPal is more specific and I can calculate calories of a recipe easily. I’ll have to do a separate post on this one. There’s so much I love about it.
AnyList has completely replaced my lists I used to keep on paper. I have a list for groceries, clothing items I need to buy eventually for our family, errands I need to run, things I have to do on my actual laptop, questions to ask at the next doctor’s appointment, etc. Having all of this on my phone keeps things on hand (literally).
When I add grocery items it automatically groups them into categories. Now all of my produce is together no matter when I add them to the list. I can easily add amounts to items as well. (Like specific ounces not just… 2 or 3.) And it’s legible. You probably have beautiful handwriting. I do not. Teacher’s have tried to improve it to no avail. No one tried harder than Mom. Lots of red Big Chief (probably not PC) practice pads at our house. Where was I?
I especially love AnyList because I can share my list with someone else via email on their app. That means that my husband and I both have access to the grocery list. He can add stuff that he needs me to get. Or, because I’m a stay at home mom… and a bit of a homebody, he can get the list on his way home from work.
How about you… What apps do you keep open? What’s your favorite way to keep your grocery list?
