Boy am I excited! I just officially became Zip List’s newest food blogging partner! Yippy Skippy!
What is Zip List your asking? Zip List is an application that allows people to strategize their meal planning and grocery shopping a bit easier. You can create a weekly meal plans, put together a grocery list, and get money-saving coupons at the same time! Let me help you put this application into reality. Say you’re looking at my blog and you are seeing a bunch of yummy recipes that you want to make for the week. Instead of writing all of your ingredients down on a piece of paper (that you might lose or forget to grab before you head to the grocery store), you can save the recipe onto your Zip List Account, create a grocery list of the ingredients that you will need for that particular recipe, and even share the recipe with your friends. Let me show you!
Let’s say you want to make this delicious Non Bake Oreo Cheesecake this week. You will click “Save Recipe” and the recipe will be saved in your recipe box.
To retrieve this recipe, at the upper right hand corner of my website, you will click “Zip List Recipe Box” to find all the recipes you have saved. It won’t just show you the recipes that you have saved on my site, it will show ALL the recipes you have saved from other sites as well.
When you take your mouse over the Zip List Feature, there will be three more drop downs that will appear. Let’s take a look at all of them together, shall we? When you click on ” Zip List Recipe Box” this is what you will see. There will be some featured recipes of the day that you can save into your recipe box.
You can also create a grocery list of the ingredients that you will need from the grocery store of the recipes that you have saved by clicking “My List”.
Once you have collected your recipes and got your list together, you can plan when you will prepare your meals. This is a great tool to make sure that you are actually making the recipes that you have saved instead of just saving them and never making them. You can now plan, with Zip List, when you want to prepare your dishes.
Last, but definitely not least, are the Deals. With Zip List, you can get coupon deals of markets and grocery stores in your location. As you add recipes, you will begin to see deals in your area for certain ingredients.
Now, the best part. You can download the Zip List mobile app on your iPhone or Android and have it with you when you go to the grocery store! Just pull it up on your phone! How cool is that?
I am very honored and proud to be apart of a wonderful community of fellow food bloggers and publishers that are also Zip List partners. I am also hopeful that this app and resource will help make your grocery shopping easier and will make you more eager to want to create new recipes to share with your family and friends. I even have this downloaded on my phone! I am not just saying that because I am a partner. Now you can go back and browse my website, search for great recipes, save them, and plan when to make them!
