    I started playing around with Ziplist and really like it. You can save recipes in it (either your own or any you find online), then put them in a meal plan and it will generate a shopping list of what you need to buy to make those recipes. Its pretty cool checking off the list on the phone instead of a piece of paper.

    I have been slack and stopped after a loading a few recipes... but I can see it working really well once all my regular meals are in there.

    Would love to hear what others are using too.

    I use 'menu planner'. You can import recipes, and it updates your pantry list and creates shopping lists as you plan. I really like it!

    I started using menu planner but then decided to keep writing shopping lists. Reason being that an important part of strong literacy skills is to model reading and writing wherever possible so I'm trying to write the list with DS1 and then make a point of reading it whilst we're shopping. Both kids see me on the phone and laptop a lot but not very often with pen in hand so I'm trying to find opportunities.

    Sorry if that comes across a bit sanctimonious but I'm a literacy/English teacher and so many children never see literacy in the home, so the shopping list is a good place to start.

    Grumpybump I do online shopping so that doesn't work here we have a blackboard shaped like a robot on the pantry that we add shopping items to, or to-do lists. I then take a photo of it and take that to the shops. When we run out of something, or i mention i need to do something DS tells me to 'write it on the robot'. We also still use a wall calendar so important things are usually written down in our house.

    To PP asking about android, I had one on android that I quite liked, I'll have to check my old phone to see what it was called. It was nice and simple.

    Thanks for the suggestions guys I will have a play with them and see what I think- I have all these bits of paper floating around driving me mad
