When it comes time to make a grocery list, you need to know what you have in your refrigerator to avoid wasting the food you have by buying food you don’t need. You can keep a hand-written inventory or get more technical using an app for Android or iOS.
These pantry management apps are linked to iTunes but many are also available for Android.
Add and remove items from your pantry, freezer, and refrigerator to Pantry Check using a barcode scanner to know exactly what you have in your stockpile. Current users want expiration date alarms added to the app, but you can manually mark if an item has spoiled and see your food usage (or waste) by date.
Get recipe suggestions based on what is in your kitchen. Tap in the ingredients on hand and choose the category and amount of time available. Then, select a recipe. You can even send a text to your Honey straight from the app if you are missing an ingredient.
Track what is in your kitchen so you are not buying food that you already have or ignoring the food about to expire. Scan items easily with a barcode. When you move to delete an item due to expiration date, the app will give you recipes suggestions or recommend freezing the item.
Not the typical pantry tracker, the FoodKeeper helps answer the question, “Is this still safe to eat?” Search for food by type or using the database and find the best way to store your food and increase the shelf life.
Based in the United Kingdom, you can manually add items to your cupboard, fridge, and freezer. Then, track the items you use and find recipes to match what you have left. You can also find the portions based on the number of adults and children, plan meals, and create a shopping list.
