What You Need Before You Shop Til You Drop

Sep 4, 2012

Shopping shouldn’t be a hassle – it should be easy and fun. This list is a compilation of apps that help make your shopping experience easier from the start. Yes, I hawk my own app here, but I showcase some other incredible ones too!

Store Hours

Yes, it’s my app, but it let’s you find out right away whether or not that store is open. There’s no reason to drive somewhere if you’re going to end up empty-handed. Do a quick and easy search for the store and find out if it’s open, or plan ahead by determining the store hours a few days ahead of time. It’s a great app, it’s accurate, and it’s a time-saver for sure!


GasBuddy – Find Cheap Gas

Gas ain’t cheap. So if you’re going to be driving around all day from store to store, use this app to find the cheapest gas in the area. Seriously, there’s no point in paying more than you have to and fortunately this app is designed to save you a few bones. Then use your savings to buy some more cool stuff.


shopkick: Rewards & Deals

If you know you’re going to walk into a ton of stores, why not get something for it? Shopkick is cool because you literally get free coupons and rewards just for doing what you always do. It’s a no-brainer and it’s an easy-to-use app.


Milo Local Shopping

If you know what you want, you can figure out what stores have it (and who has the best price) before you even leave the house. So instead of driving around all day to 5 different stores, narrow it down to the only one you need and make more room in your day for other things. You can even use it on-the-go if you don’t have the item at home.


Out of Milk Shopping List

We’ve all done it before: go to the supermarket for one thing, pick up 20 other things, and forget the one thing we actually came for. Thank goodness for this app, which in my opinion is the best and easiest of the shopping list apps. Make the list, check it twice, and don’t forget that milk ever again.
