How Free Apps Can Help You Organize and Cook Exquisite Meals

The title pretty much says it all, so without further introduction, we will present you an awesome way to organize your grocery shopping list, find tasty recipes, cook exquisite meals and we will even give some practical advice on kitchen economics. The only thing that you need is a smartphone!

What’s cooking?

You should actually start organizing your grocery shopping by the weekly menu. Decide what are you cooking and when, and this will help you save time, money, and it will even keep you away from the store so you won’t have any chance to spend any additional money. Especially if you are on a diet, organizing your weekly menu can help you lose weight just by keeping you away from all the temptations.

So what you could cook? Instead of opening your fridge for the 3rd time, gazing at your groceries like they are going to speak out and suggest something, try downloading this app:

BigOven: This handy little tool will allow you to type in your available ingredients, and will provide you with the best possible recipe that you could cook just by using those items. This free app should be your first choice, because it will also organize your weekly menu for you trough a more than a friendly-user platform, and even make a list of groceries that you should remember to buy in your next shopping. You can also add recipes for yourself if you have something tasty that you want to share with the world.

AllRecipes: A somewhat older but still a very popular app that doesn’t have so many options as our previous one, but is still an awesome tool if you are looking for recipes, especially if you feel spontaneous because this app will decide what to cook for you. The definite up side is that the instructions are very specific, with great examples and how much time will you need to finish your cooking. This is a great introduction for out next app, which is:



Cooking Timer: Among many apps that will charge you for something that you probably already have on your phone, but not as accessible as you would like it to be, this app is free and really easy to use. But first, you will need those groceries!

Grocery IQ: Now this is a great app for your grocery shopping that will also help you save some money in the process. You probably heard of this app already, but if you didn’t – you’re in for a treat! This app will provide you with the latest deals and sales and notify you about them, so it’s not just organizing your shopping, it saves you additional money with coupons and you can even organize your grocery list by supermarkets! You can even enter data about shelf and aisles and this app will guide you through the shop in the record time.



So there you have it! The only thing that is left is to download some cookware! Oh, right, you can’t do that. Well, at least we can tell you about sales of cookware on Matchbox, Overstock and Potsandpans, where you can find professional tools at a real bargain. We don’t know how to make an apron, so you can provide us with a DIY project in the comments down below, and that’s all we need to start our cooking!

Bon appétit!
