Sounds like an app that I would get. The only addition needed is aisle # and other directions.

Actually, if you live in the Southeast, a very large (hint) chain has a website that does just that. And it changes the locations to whichever store you choose.

My husband is a great shopper. He's more picky about his food than I am. As long as he's willing to go to the store for us, and I don't have to, I'm good with that!

I also never send my husband to the grocery store for me. He does go by himself sometimes but rarely. Iíve done picture ďcataloguesĒ for my Christmas list for years - learned my lesson o e year!!!!! I actually like grocery shopping, especially when we are in areas away from home. He does go with me (not sure why) when we are up in Gloversville, NY - I rarely go up as itís a pretty boring town - except for a great quilt shop - my saving Grace!!! Most guys and grocery stores just donít mix I. My world😄😄😄

I go online and order my groceries, etc and my husband and grandson pick them up at the door of the store, or I have them delivered to the house.

I got groceries for my sis in law who had been bedridden for weeks during a difficult pregnancy.

Her list was amazing. laid out in order of rows in the store.. Aisle 1 waist high 1/3 of teh way North, , Folgers coffee red bottle xx oz dark roast. all the way through the store. I loved it.

And she got exactly what she wanted.

My husband and I cannot shop together. We always wind up in an argument. If he goes grocery shopping and there is something that I want and it’s not something we routinely buy, then I take a picture of it with his phone. If I don’t have the item to take a pic of it, then I find it online and take pic of that with his phone. Works for us.

When I come home with groceries, DH comes running, takes the bags to the kitchen and unpacks them but leaves everything on the counter for me to deal with. Now after 56 years, Iím smart enough to know his motive - heís madly curious to see whatís new to eat.
