My husband recently informed me that you can make a personalized shopping list from most mobile devices, using the handy dandy green plus signs on Bargain Believer shopping lists. (I know that some newer devices don’t have problems.) I told him, “Nope, tried it.” I discovered there is a slight glitch on my phone, so that’s why I didn’t know. (I’ll explain below.) Did you know this!?! I’m so excited and can’t believe I didn’t know about it.
First of all, if you don’t use the green plus signs, you’re missing out. The items are listed by price on the sale lists, but when you click on what you want, it will categorize for you — and a whole lot more than that! You can watch this video for more details or just click around and figure it all out.
You will need to turn off the mobile view. The green plus signs will appear and you can click away! A new window will pop up and you’ll have to go back and forth between them. For Gina (iphone) and my husband (Android) that’s all they had to do.
For me (iphone), nothing appears on the list after clicking the first green plus sign. It pulls up an empty list. I have to click back on the store’s deal list and then back to the shopping list that opened. It magically appears and kicks it in gear for the future green plus signs I click.
This is still not ideal. We have bigger and better plans and my husband is working on it, but this is better than nothing. I will be using my mobile sometimes, but will still prefer using my laptop to make lists. Using a mobile is a slower process since you have to go back and forth between windows.
All mobiles seem to have their own issues and the plus signs weren’t really designed for mobile devices. So, this may not work for everyone. But, give it a shot!
Some of you have probably been doing this “forever.” But, I’m hoping it will be news for some of you — like it was for me!! :)
