In the past couple weeks, I've had a couple people ask me how to make Cook'n organize the items on their shopping list to match the aisles in their grocery store.
One person wanted to know which issue of the newsletter had that article in it. After looking through all of the past newsletters and realizing that I've never written an article on that subject, I told her "February 2004!"
As you probably know, when Cook'n makes a grocery shopping list, it organizes the items on the list into groups. It combines all the Dairy Products, Canned Goods, Meats, etc. What you may not know is that you can customize these groups to match the aisles in your favorite grocery store.
To do this, click Groups on the toolbar. The groups of food products on your shopping list will appear in the same order that the groups appear on this list. That is to say, if Fresh Produce appears first on this list then the fresh produce food items will appear first on your shopping list.
Beverages is the group that appears next on my list but the beverages section of my grocery store is not right next to the fresh produce section. As I walk through my store, I find that the Dairy section comes right after the Fresh Produce. To change the order, I click on the Dairy group so it's highlighted and I click the "Move Up" button. This will move that item up on the list.
You can do the same thing and customize the order in which the food items appear on your shopping list. Hopefully, this will make that shopping trip go just a little bit quicker.
Have a super day!
