ZipList Launches Grocery Checklists Feature(March 24, 2011)
Sterling, VA (PRWEB) March 24, 2011
ZipList, Inc., an online and mobile grocery list and recipe search service, with partners ranging from AOLs KitchenDaily to Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, today launched pre-populated shopping checklists to help users shop for what they need for special occasions, as well as pick up items they use week-after-week, like bread, eggs and milk. Users can also enter to win a $500 grocery gift card, plus other prizes, when they create and share their own shopping list checklists.
ZipLists grocery checklists help users prep for spring cleaning, as well as stock a bar, a medicine cabinet or even a spice rack. Theme-specific checklists help users shop for celebrations, like Passover and Cinco de Mayo, or get ready for a camping trip or a new puppy. Diet-specific checklists are perfect for diabetics, runners and heart smart shoppers. Users can add what they need to their grocery lists with a few clicks.
We continue to make the grocery shopping experience less of a chore, and are pleased to offer a new feature that makes it easier for our users to find everything they need in one trip to the store, said Geoff Allen, Founder and CEO, ZipList, Inc. Were now giving our users even more reason to create their lists online, then access them anytime, anywhere.
Users simply search for checklists they may need to use in the future, like for basic grocery items or common spice rack needs. Save favorite checklists to My Checklists. Then when its time to go shopping, users simply pull up their checklists and check off needed items to add them straight to their weekly shopping lists.
Today there are more than 100 shopping list checklists at ZipList, including those from partners, like MarthaStewart.com, Whole Living, KitchenDaily and Moms Who Think. Top food bloggers have also specially created checklists, including a Cook from the Pantry checklist from $5 Dinner Mom, a Gulf Coast Favorites checklist from Deep South Dish and a Once a Month Stockpiling checklist from Once a Month Mom.
