Meal planning and cooking from scratch should always be a fun experience and an activity you should enjoy doing. However, it is not always an easy task.

Planning the trips to the grocery store and smart grocery shopping can be a challenge even for the most organized of foodies.

If almost every week you find yourself in a situation that you are lacking certain groceries or, even worse, throwing out expired produce or meats – it is definitely time to perfect your grocery shopping skills with a little help of these 3 smart mobile apps.

3. AnyList (iOS)

If you are not a lone wolf and you live with several other people, AnyList is the right choice for you. This app will help you pull the perfect grocery list together very quickly, while it will also give you an opportunity to pay close attention to each and every member of your family or roommates.

AnyList app allows multiple users to add items to a singular shopping list, which means that any changes made will be automatically synced to everyone’s devices.

A true family app, indeed.

2. MealPlan (iOS)

If you are a cooking from scratch amateur, MealPlan is a perfect meal planning app for you. It is fun and extremely easy to use so it is great for first-time meal planners.
