One of the things on my 12 for 2012 list was implementing a new print feature for recipes and a better search feature for archives. So far, I am halfway there with easier printing, still walking in mud with the search/category stuff, but we’re making progress!
In addition to the print feature, there is also a “Save Recipe” button on each recipe enabling you to collect the recipes you like.
ZipList makes it easier for me to share recipes with you, but I haven’t really used it a lot for creating personal shopping lists, as I’m still in the habit of grabbing a pen and paper to make a list.
Well, today that changed.
I updated my personal settings to include my cell number so now I can retrieve my shopping list while on the go—no more leaving the list at home hanging on the fridge. To retrieve the list, just text “list” to ZipList and it is sent back in a return text. Items can be added to the list by text too.
I like that.
Easy is good.
I also added the Recipe Clipper to my navigation bar. Recipe Clipper allows you to capture ANY recipe you find online … blogs, websites, you can clip to your heart’s content and add it to your recipe box or shopping list. As someone who works hard to develop and share recipes, I appreciate that the ingredient list is captured, available for shopping and such, but the entire recipe must be viewed on the original site.
I really like that.
Credit given to the original source is very good.
A few more features you might find useful:
♦ ZipList can personalize your grocery list based on the stores you frequent. Do you shop at certain stores for certain things? I know Whole Foods will have items that King Soopers or Costco don’t carry, so sometimes I end up with three stops to get everything, but the list is in no particular order.
♦ There is a Weekly Meal Planner to plug all those fabulous recipes into.
♦ Have favorite recipes of your own you want to keep in your ZipList Recipe Box? You can do that too.
♦ Use coupons? There’s a handy coupon tab for you to browse and select only the coupons you want and use.
♦ Of course, if you have an iPhone or Android there are mobile apps for even more feature flexibility.
Collect fabulous recipes from all over the web into one place, remember where you found them, and add them to a shopping list any time the mood strikes. Set up a free account and start filling your recipe box, it’s that simple.
Life can be complicated.
I like simple.

Is your shopping list tech savvy or pen and paper?
