This is Challenge #2, sponsored by Ziplist, in the 90-Day Budget Boot Camp. Don’t forget to enter their exciting giveaway! If you’re new, find out how you can join to kick your own budget’s butt!

Challenge #2 is up and this week, you’ll have to head over to Clair’s site to get the details!   Plus, there is an exciting giveaway from Ziplist!

Ziplist, if you haven’t checked it out, is a FREE tool that allows you to keep everything needed to make your shopping list in one place.   Here’s my favorite features –

– – Access Your Grocery List Anywhere – –

You can quickly access your shopping list to manage it and add to it online, from your phone with a FREE application or text message,   and share your shopping list with your family members.   How many times have you been out and about, when you remembered you needed something at the store, but by the time you got home, you forgot about it completely.   With ZipList, you can use your phone to add it on immediately or remove items they pick up.

– – Sort Your List by Aisle – –

Select your favorite stores, then with a simple drag and drop, you can set up the layout exactly as you shop.   If you enter the produce section first and end in frozen or vice versa, you can organize your store that way.   Then, your grocery list will be sorted to help you get in and out of the store quickly!

– – Consolidate Recipes – –

Using the Recipe Clipper, which you can install to your browser by simply dragging and dropping it, you can easily take recipes from any site and keep them all together on ZipList.   Then, with one click, add the recipe to your shopping list.   It will give you the opportunity to uncheck any ingredients you already have on hand and it automatically recognizes staples like salt and pepper, so they aren’t added.

Plus, some sites, like Martha Stewart’s Whole Living, have partnered with ZipList to make adding recipes even quicker!

With all of this talk about the importance of a menu plan and shopping list, ZipList will help you by saving you time and best, it’s FREE!   Try it out, take a tour, and tell me how you like it! I’d love to know your own thoughts.   And, if you have a suggestion, e-mail ZipList. They have some amazing customer service!

Now, head over to Mummy Deals to get the details about this week’s challenge and enter to win this extremely cute shopping bag starter kit to use with your ZipList shopping list!
