Saving Time and Money with Shelf Scouter – Digital Pantry Review

This is a compensated post in partnership with Shelf Scouter.

I’m a list maker. Are you a list maker? I make lists for all sorts of things, to-do for work, projects I’m working on at home, groceries, and the lists go on… and if I forget my list… back in the BC era {Before Children}, I used to be able to memorize everything on my lists at any given time, these days I’m lucky to remember one thing on my grocery list.

To Do List

My shopping trips turn into a game that looks something like me going down every.single.aisle in the store looking at all the products trying to remember if we have them in our pantry or not, only to get home, unload, and find that I have “multiples” of what I already had at home and missed out on the staples I really needed. Not to mention it’s a chore to grocery shop in the first place. Unfortunately we’re not as close to the grocery as we used to be in our old house, but there are ways to save some stress when I “miss my list”. Engineer turned mom-trepreneur, Lindsay Fairman and her team of women recently launched Shelf Scouter, a free website/app to assist busy families in shopping for everything – a digital pantry of sorts. I love checking out sites like Shelf Scouter, anything that can save me time and brainpower – count me in!
