Take Picture of List with Cell Phone

contest winner icon

I have a big white board in the kitchen on which I make the grocery list as I think of items. It's easier than looking for a list to add to or having lots of little pieces of paper to keep track of. The problem with this is that I have to copy the list by hand onto paper when I go to the store. The other day, I was in a hurry to leave the house and thought, "there must be a better way". It occurred to me to take a picture of the list with my cell phone camera. It worked GREAT! No papers no re-copying.

Thanks for reminding me! I used to use my Polaroid Camera to take pictures of Dry Board messages at workshops.

Great idea on taking picture of list. Thanks. Caught this large mouth bass yesterday fishing with my remoter control boat. Yes, it has a workable rod and reel mounted on deck and can reel in a fish up to 15 lbs. Not a toy.

Great idea. I found a free app that I can make my grocery list with. I can keep 'always' items and check them off and I can add to my list the 'once' items and not have to worry about them again. I love apps!
