AnyList: A Must for Planners!

Make a List

Make a List

I am a list maker! And an itinerary maker, a book reader, a blogger, a plan maker, and oh yeah, a grocery shopper! So I am always looking for a better way to keep it all together! And I want it on my IPhone, my IPad and my computer, simultaneously. And all in one place!

This week I have been experimenting with the App ANYLIST and I love it!

Here are the reasons why:

I can quickly create any Organized Custom List I want and find it on my IPhone, my IPad and my Computer in one place. I can make Folders and keep lists in each folder. For example; I have a “Travel Folder” and in it I have a “Travel To Do List”, a “Packing List,” and an “Itinerary List,” to name a few. I also have a custom “Book Folder” with lists in it, and a “Blog Folder” with lists. All kinds of Lists and each in it’s own Folder! I can mark items off the Lists one by one or create a “Favorites List” to save items for the next time I travel and I won’t have to make each List over again. I can just add new items to the custom “Favorite List.”

I can share my lists with friends or family or mark them private.

It makes a FABULOUS Grocery List! It automatically puts your items in a grocery category and you can customize the categories to the Layout of your grocery store and how you shop there! For example; if you go down the vegetable and fruit aisle first at Kroger, the fruits and vegetables would be first on your list at that store. Do you shop for different items at different stores? Do you shop for bulk items or at vegetable stands? You can customize your grocery items to different stores or locations.

If your husband is like mine and wanders a different way in the store, the list can be set up for him with his shopping pattern!

You can import recipes from the web or write your own and save the ingredients to your List. It also saves the actual recipe and instructions too, and shows which item goes with what recipe. And puts the Recipes in categories too, like,” Main Dishes, “Breads,” “Pasta,” whatever category you want them in.

You can take a picture of an item, if you want a specific brand of anything. This is good too if your husband is shopping for you, as he will most likely come home with the only product you didn’t want, or buy several different kinds of something because he had no idea what you wanted! I know this from experience ladies!  You can also add a note to the Grocery item, such as to remind yourself you have a coupon.

You can add anything to any List by Voice by using Siri! I Love this, I don’t even have to open AnyList to add something!

Location Reminders alert you when you go by your Grocery Store, etc. that you have items on a List for there. So you won’t get home and say, “I drove right by the grocery store, or CVS, or the cleaners, and forgot I needed some things!” Your Lists can be categorized to your local store, how cool is that?

So, if you are a List Maker like me or an Organizer, this is the App For YOU! Enjoy!

PS…… I needed some help with one of the instructions and a real person answered my email promptly. Another great thing. And they send out new messages periodically to review a feature of the App, so you will get full use of it! Absolutely LOVE IT!

PSS… I am posting this under my Tuesday Travel Tips even though it is not Tuesday. I have too many tips to post and not enough Tuesdays right now.

    I am a list maker, but my lists usually are on scraps of paper, the backside of an envelope, a draft letter, occasionally on a post-it sticker… I am a paper lover and we use every scrap of paper in the house before it goes to the recycling bin. These paper lists are very convenient: You can stash them in your pocket (where you will forget them), you can wash them (and sometimes the list is still readable). An app for lists? No, that would be way too conventional for me!

    Can you mark the list as you shop to note that you have put something in your cart? You know, the “cross it off your paper” feature?

      Annette this is an app I use everyday and just LOVE it! I make lists for everything, not just my groceries, and it comes in so handy. I have a Blog Folder, with lists in it. The lists are broken down into categories, like ideas for blogs and things I need to research, etc. I also have a Garden Folder broken down into several categories, like things to do now, Ideas for Spring, Flowers to look for, etc. Then I have a House To Do Category, with all the stuff I want SB to do when he’s back from traveling and work. Ha Ha! I have a Destination List, etc I could go on and on! It is handy when I travel because before when I just added things to my Iphone Notes section I couldn’t figure out which note concerned what, and now I have the Lists all tidy in their folders and it makes a lot of difference! I take my phone everywhere and the app allows me to remember the recipes I plan on making for the week, because they are right there with the items I need from the store! I just recharge the phone every night at my bedside and believe it or not I get many ideas about stuff when I sleep at night so I wake up and just add them to my lists! I know, pathetic, but it works for me!

        At the moment I have a big A4 book full of lists and a few files on the computer with plant names, things to take on holiday etc. I will look into that app, though I don’t have an iPhone and don’t really use it for much at the moment.
