Power shopping means spending less time in the stores and more time doing what you really want to do. LifeTopix can help you make your shopping trips more efficient so you can achieve this goal. Many of you might not think of LifeTopix as a powerful shopping app. Perhaps to your surprise, LifeTopix includes many of the features you would expect in best of breed shopping apps such as reusable shopping items, location services, and collaboration features.
What really sets LifeTopix apart from the typical shopping apps is that its Shopping topic information is available across other LifeTopix topics. For example, the items you need to buy for a trip or event automatically show up in your LifeTopix Shopping lists. The result is a better organized view of everything you buy, need to buy, or had bought for you, and where you shop.
Shopping Lists for Events
Let’s discover the power of LifeTopix. Imagine your son, Johnny, is going to be attending a field trip to the zoo with his class. You’ve volunteered to be a chaperone and to donate items, such as bottled water, paper plates, and bananas. As you can see in the following example, in LifeTopix you can create an event that shows on your calendar, and the associated shopping list is linked to this event as “Shopping Items.” This is what makes creating lists with LifeTopix unique — the ability to link them to the items to which they are associated.
Shopping Items Database
If you’re like me and buy the same items at Whole Foods, Target, or Home Depot (insert your favorite stores) every week. LifeTopix saves you time because you can create a database of shopping items that includes the seller, price, and quantity. You can use these items over and over again in your shopping lists. You can easily select the shopping items that you wish to include in your lists. Those items can be divided among sellers or categories (such as clothing, groceries, or home + garden) and are pre-loaded or user-defined. Viewing lists by sellers really makes it easy because there are some items that you might buy from different retail stores due to limited inventory or better prices.
The key to running errands efficiently is planning your day based on the most efficient path from point A to point B. Using Location Services helps you to plan your route. The Near Me feature gives you one-tap access to a view of the LifeTopix items that are in the vicinity of your current location. For example, if you set sellers for shopping items, you can see the sellers in the Near Me view.
You can easily share your shopping list with your spouse, partner, or other family members via email or SMS. You can also share via Facebook or Twitter if you want the list to be public. Simply click the appropriate sharing icon in the right panel to share the list. Email is a great method to use. The recipient can open the list directly from the email and view it in their LifeTopix app. They can make changes and send it back, which allows you to collaborate on the shopping list.
My Apps — Launch Other Apps
Last, but not least, you can launch other apps from LifeTopix, such as barcode scanners, recipe apps, traffic apps, and more which truly makes LifeTopix the All-In-One organizer for everything you need to make your shopping trips efficient.
Whether you enjoy shopping or not, we hope this post helps you make your shopping trips more efficient so you can spend less time at the store and more time doing the things you really want to do.
