I love my babies more than anything, but I think every mother understands the term "mommy-brain" 100 times more than she would like to. I seem to have it really bad. I haven't been to store since my first was born without forgetting SOMETHING. I can even go with a list and I somehow still skip over items.
While searching online one day I found the SmartShopper. I contacted the company because I thought if I ever had a chance of combating mommy-brain it would be with this handy gadget! I got mine in the mail and went to work making my shopping list. The SmartShopper uses voice recognition, meaning you push a button, say your item, select it from the list of matches, and do it all over again until you list is full. You can also do things like add an errand to the bank or dry cleaners, you can put an icon beside items you have coupons for, and also change the quantity of a individual items. Then, when all is said (pun intended) and done, you just print your list out and you're on your way. Now if this doesn't seem much different than your handwritten list you're SO SO wrong!
The list is broken down into different catergories like meats, produce, freezer section, canned goods, etc. This mimics the grocery stores breakdown and so while you're shopping aisle by aisle, your list is going right along with you! Here is a little video demonstration of me using my SmartShopper!
And now this is the part of the show where you get to enter to win your own SmartShopper!
How To Enter: Go to the SmartShopper website and tell me something about the SmartShopper that isn't mentioned here. INCLUDE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS SO I CONTACT YOU IF YOU WIN!
