How to Manage Your Shops and Ingredients in the Mobile App

Manage your shops

Keeping your list of favorite stores up to date on your Shopping List will help keep you organized and make grocery shopping easier.

If you are using the mobile app, you will follow the steps below. If you are using the website, please click here.

  • Click on the shopping cart icon to open your Shopping List 
  • Click Shops
  • To add a new shop:
    • Click Add new shop
    • Enter the name of the shop
    • Click Save
  • To rename your default shop, swipe left
  • To remove a shop you will need to log into the website

 

Manage your ingredients

For each ingredient, you can choose the store where you would like to purchase it and the department of the store where you'll find it.

  • Open your Shopping List
  • Click on the ingredient
  • Add or edit any details for that ingredient
    • Update the image
    • Quantity needed
    • Unit of measure
    • The category in which the ingredient appears
    • The shop where you will purchase the ingredient
    • Schedule the frequency that you want to purchase that ingredient
    • Make a note
    • Indicate that you always have that ingredient on hand
    • Note: changes made here will not make changes to the recipe(s) for which the ingredient is used
  • Click Save

Pro tip - If an item is something that is always stocked in your pantry (for example, salt), you can check the box for Always Have It. This will automatically move the ingredient to your Got It list when it appears in a recipe.

 

Manage your food categories

You can also specify the store where you would like to purchase all of the the items in a category.

  • Open your Shopping List
  • Click on the  i next to the category you would like to assign to a different store
  • Select the store where you will purchase all of the ingredients in that category
