Mighty Grocery Shopping List: Current shopping list

Current shopping list is a key activity of Mighty Grocery. Typical usage scenario includes adding items, placing items in cart, checking out. It is also possible to open Item Details and change quantity and price.

Please make sure to see Getting Started Guide before moving on.

Add a new item

To add a new item:

  1. Click Add button (Plus) on top of Shopping list screen.
  2. Start typing item.
  3. The app shows a list of existing items from product catalog which match your entry.
  4. Click on an item to add it to the shopping list.

If item does not exist on product catalog, just continue typing to enter the full item name and click Add button.

Edit mode

To activate Edit mode tap Lightning button. Tap the icon again to deactivate Edit mode.

In Edit mode you can quickly add items using Voice and Barcode scan. Also, you can change order of items using drag-drop if  “Sort by name” option is OFF under Menu > Settings > Options > Sort options. Just touch and hold a record on the right side and drag it up or down to the place you want.

Edit item

To edit an item, e.g. set item price, quantity, etc. tap on the right side of a row to open Edit item screen.

Delete item

Shopping list Edit modeTo delete an item:

  1. Long-tap item to bring up a context menu.
  2. Choose Delete.
  3. Your item is deleted.

Postpone item

If you decided not to buy an item during your shopping trip, you could postpone it until next checkout. Here’s the scenario:

  1. Long-tap an item > Postpone
  2. The item is hidden from the list.
  3. Check other items > tap Checkout
  4. Postponed items will be placed on shopping list again.

You can use Sort and filter command in Side Menu to show All / Current or Postponed only.

Sort and filter

By default, items are grouped by aisles and are not sorted by name so you could reorder items manually. Default sort options are specified under Menu > Settings > Options > Sort options.

If you would like to change default sort options, tap Side menu > Sort and filter > uncheck Use default sort options.

Move items to a different shopping list

To move an item to a different shopping list use the following steps:

  1. Open Edit Item screen by clicking on the right of an item in shopping list.
  2. Click Shopping list property.
  3. Select shopping list you would like to move item to.
  4. The item is moved to a different shopping list.

Assign items to multiple stores

In order to assign items to multiple stores it will require a Master list, say “Groceries”, and a few sub-lists which would represent your stores, say “Whole Foods” and “Costco”. If you assign an item to Groceries, it will be listed under Groceries, Whole Foods and Costco. If you assign item directly to a store’s list, it will be listed under that store and under Master list e.g. Groceries.

Please see Manage shopping lists User’s Guide for more details on how to get your Master list configured.

    I wish the “add item” using Voice would only add an item if matches an item already in the user configured product catalog.
    Right now, it is very possible to accidentally add “bear” instead of “pear” to your shopping list (and have “bear” added to the generic cathegory as well)

    If an item doesn’t exist, the normal add item command could automatically be initiated: That way you would have a chance to manually edit a new item before it is added.

    Hi! Is there a way to reorder items in an aisle? And is there a way to reorder aisle manually? Thanks for your App! Can’t wait to get Windows version! :)

    • Alex says:

      Thanks for your questions. Yes, both things are possible. To reorder aisles, please go to Aisles tab and switch to Edit mode. More details in Manage Aisles User’s Guide. To change order of items within aisle: 1) turn off Sort by name under Menu > Settings > Options > Sort options; 2) switch to Edit mode in any list.

    • Alex says:

      Unfortunately, we don’t have plans for Windows version. Currently we are working on iOS version.

    • Colbe says:

      Another way to change the order of items in your list is by editing the first characters of the item name.
      for example if you type in three spaces before the item name it will appear near the top of the list, before any item name with spaces or one space.
      If you type a z before the item name, it will move to the bottom of the list.
      If you name several items bag trash, bag yard, baggie big zip, etc., they will be grouped together.

    Recently, when I check off an item on a shopping list, a window pops up asking me to enter a Unit Price. How can I stop this from happening? Is extremely annoying.

    • Alex says:

      Wilfred, to disable Unit Price prompt you could tap in the middle of a row (not checkbox) or disable “Details mode” under Menu > Settings > Options.

  4. Gary says:

    It seems that anytime I enter more than 15 items on a shopping list, the additional items do not appear under the correct aisle category. For example, red peppers appeared under Meats instead of Produce on this week’s list. Last week Sirloin Tip appeared under Produce instead of Meats. How can I correct this? Or is there a 15 item limit for shipping lists?

  5. Geoff says:

    Hi, I’ve been using the paid App for some while now and shop for someone who can’t get out to do her own. It’s just “so” useful for her to enter her shopping on the MG website over the week so it’s readily available on my Galaxy when I get to the store.

    However, over time we have both made spelling mistakes or duplicate entries. For example: Baked beans, Baked Beans. How do I permanently remove the items I no longer want from the database?

    • Alex says:

      Geoff, thanks for your feedback. You can modify your product catalog under Menu > Settings > Pick list. Just find the records you don’t need, long-tap, then Delete.

    There isn’t a plus sign or a lightening sign, in the top right corner of my shopping lists, it use to be there, but something happened and I can’t get them back. I tried sliding the item in the corner but they aren’t there. ? ? ?

  7. sumi sumiati says:

    Hello i am newbie in this app, is there a way to edit different prices for different store? Because i really need that

  8. Wilfred Camilleri says:

    I noticed that when I add items to a shopping list, some of the items have a yellow triangle at the upper left hand corner. What does it signify?

  9. Molly H says:

    Hello! I was wondering if there was a way to move an entire list from one store to another? I use my lists for comparison shopping and if I end up going to a different store then I find myself moving all items individually.

    • Alex says:

      Molly, thank you for your question. Unfortunately, there is no way to move multiple items between lists. We plan to add this feature in the future. In the meantime you may want to use Super-list feature, add items to your Super-list and then shop under sub-lists. For more details please see Super-lists User’s Guide.

  10. Wilfred Camilleri says:

    Is there a way to customize a list by deleting certain fields? For example, I want to delete or hide the quantity and unit fields in a list. Can I do this?

    • Alex says:

      Unfortunately, such customization is not available. But you may want to consider using ToDo lists if you don’t need shopping fields for your items.
