Grocery List Apps – Top 5
November 20, 2019

Grocery list apps are lifesavers! Whether you’re just learning to shop for nutrient-dense ingredients or you’re an old pro, utilizing an app can really help you step up your grocery-getting game. Grocery list apps offer organization of food lists, coupons, and make weekly ads from your favorite stores easily accessible.

We shop once a week each Sunday and I always use an app. I’m sharing my favorites as well as some others I’ve heard great things about on this list. Hopefully, an app or two on this list will not only help you save time and money but also help you stick to only the ingredients that will nourish your body!


This is probably my favorite grocery app. Flipp is loaded with a ton of features that help you plan for your weekly haul of goods. You’ll find every American weekly ad and coupon in this app. That’s over 1000 ads from local retailers and over 100 coupons. That could mean incredible savings for you and your family.

Check out what else Flipp has to offer:

  • No more paper ads as Flipp digitally delivers them to you
  • A unique search feature allows you to pinpoint items that you need
  • Hundreds of retailers to browse through
  • Flipp coupons save between 20% and 70% on your favorite products
  • Option to create shopping lists within the app using your saved weekly ads or manually adding in your own
  • Flipp is always available and ready to use from your phone
  • Ability to add loyalty cards to the app
  • Available for iOS and Android

Find the Flipp app on the App Store or Google Play.

Grocery iQ

I find Grocery iQ to be wildly helpful during my trips to the supermarket because it saves my ready-made lists of items I need to buy, and at which store they can be found. The app retains this information so that I don’t need to re-add the items. I simply place them back onto my list. Easy and convenient!

Here are a few more things I appreciate about this app:

  • A wide database of products to choose from and create lists with
  • Ability to scan products as you shop so that they are ‘checked” off your list
  • Organizes the items on your list so you encounter them naturally as you navigate the aisles
  • Keeps a history of the items you buy and will auto-suggest them when you create your next shopping list
  • Saves you money by providing you with coupons of a wide variety of products
  • Saves your loyalty cards

This app is available for both iOS and Android operating systems.


ReeBee is a great flyer aggregation app that allows you to access local ads and keeps them in one convenient spot. The only downside about ReeBee is that you can’t pinpoint the ads you’re searching for and you have to sift through them all. However, if you like browsing the ads, the lack of a search feature shouldn’t be a problem for you. ReeBee does have a product search and compare feature, though, which is handy.

So, basically, ReeBee is a simple grocery app without a lot of bells and whistles. With it, you can find dozens of circulars, create shopping lists, and sync it across all of your devices.

Find the ReeBee app in the Google Play store as it is only available for Android users.

Checkout 51

This app is pretty cool because it gives you cashback once you reach $20 in savings. You can organize and create grocery lists of your favorite products within the app so that you’re always ready to hit the supermarket.

Every Thursday, new offers are updated on the app. Choose the offers that you want and purchase the products from your favorite stores. After your shopping trip, snap a photo of your receipt and upload it to the app to redeem your deals. Once you reach $20 in savings you get a cashback check mailed to you.

That sounds like a good deal to me!

The Checkout 51 app is available for iOS and Android.

Grocery Pal

The best part about Grocery Pal is that it helps you find savings and coupons at discount stores. A lot of grocery apps only include circulars from the big chain stores or your local grocery outlets. With Grocery Pal, you’ll see ads from dollar stores, discount grocery stores like Aldi, and more.

Top features of this app include:

  • Ability to browse weekly ads at your local supermarket, discount stores, and chain stores
  • Easily add sale items to your shopping list and track them
  • Barcode scanner for adding products to your list while at the store
  • Price comparer tool
  • Ability to redeem coupons from thousands of stores
  • Organize items by which aisle they’re in at the store
  • Unlimited lists can be created at once
  • Sync list with other users and mobile devices or browsers
  • Share lists with other users in real-time
  • Send lists via email or instant messaging
  • All lists are restored when switching devices

Grocery Pal is available for iOS and Android.

Planning has been instrumental in my healing journey and I don’t know where I’d be without my grocery apps. They help me stay organized, create shopping lists, and save money. Purchasing organic, healthy foods that aren’t loaded with sugar and preservatives can get a little pricey and finding coupons for said foods can be difficult. The right grocery app will point you in the right direction and make eating nutrient-dense food on the regular a little bit easier.

Do you use one of these grocery list apps? Did I miss one? Tell me about it in the comments!
