I love making lists. Having something written in front of me helps keep me on track and from forgetting anything. While I’m good at making lists, I’m also pretty good at leaving them at home on the table which does me no good when I’m at the store trying to get shopping done. Anything to make shopping easier with three kids in tow is awesome. Publix has a great easy to use app that helps me keep from forgetting everything and stay on budget by stocking up on what’s on sale.
Download the Publix app from your app store. It’s free and downloads pretty quickly. You can set up a free account if you’d like to and it’s that easy to start shopping right away. From the app you can select digital coupons to use during your shopping trip, access your shopping list, browse items in the weekly ad, and even order online.
Picking the Weekly Ad option gives you the opportunity to look through everything in the ad by category. Pick the category you’d like to shop from and you’ll see an alphabetical list of all the items on sale in the ad that fall into that category. Some things do fall into more than one category – for example if something is a frozen product but also buy one, get one you’ll be able to find it under both listings.
Touching the green plus sign will add items to your Shopping List that you can access from the main menu (three lines in the top left corner). If you need more information before deciding to add it to your list, simply touch the product or description for more information. You’ll be given the option to go back to this list once you’ve looked over a more detailed description.
After you browsed through all the categories that interest you and have added items to your list, you’re ready to head to the store and go shopping! Simply select the store you’ll be shopping it before shopping and you’ll have an aisle by aisle grocery shopping list. Touch the circle on the left side of the screen as you find the items to remove them from your list. You’ll be able to delete all the items you’ve picked up and completely clear your list so you can start again for your next shopping trip.
Just like that you’ll be walking back out with just what you went into the store for!
Using this app has saved me a lot of time and money over the past several months. I have noticed that sometimes there’s something in my local store that’s on sale that wasn’t listed on the app so you might want to keep an eye out while you’re in the store for anything on sale specific to your local store.
Have you tried the Publix app yet? Has it helped you stay organized? Save money?
