Smart Shopper Review and Giveaway

January 26, 2009 by  

I was sooooo excited to be able to review the Smart Shopper. The kids have seen it advertised on TV before and tell me that I need that!!
I opened the box and it was all very neatly packed as in the picture. There was a roll of paper loaded and 2 others in the box. I needed to add 4 “AA” batteries and it was ready to go!!
It said it had magnets on the back of it…but I didn’t see them, so I doubted that it did and my first concern was mounting it somewhere. But guess what…the magnets are there! They are strong too. I have no question that they will hold.
It just looks cool doesn’t it? I just couldn’t wait to try it out. I did read the instructions though. There are over 2500 grocery items listed in the memory. So it works on voice recognition. I thought you would just say the item and it would somehow know to type it out. (Silly me…miss untechie would think that.) But there are so many items in there. You are given a book with all of them listed. There is a feature to be able to add more items if there is something you want in the memory that is not listed.
It is so simple to use. You just hit the big blue “record” button and say your item. Then it shows you a list of about 3 possibilities of what you said (or just varieties of that item) and you chose the one you want. Hit select and it is on your list!
I am a list maker. I will sit down and write out my grocery list. I do have a place on my daily list for groceries that I can add to that as I need, but many times I am not around my list when I think of something. Then I forget to get it on the list. With this…it is so handy. I just walk up to the Smart Shopper and add my item right then and there. I know there were two things I would have not remembered if it had not been for this. One was a furnace filter that I had meant to get several times but never got on my list. I came up from the basement one day when I thought of it and went straight over to the Smart Shopper and added it. The other was fabric softener that I had missed on my last shopping trip.
Then when you are ready to go to the store you just print off the list.

It not only has your list for you but it is all categorized into sections of the store. Example: dairy, canned goods, fresh produce. I don’t know about you but when I am making my list I many times just think and write in no order…so I sometimes do miss something on my list when walking through the store that I would not have if it was in the proper place.
This is fantastic! I really love it and will continue to use it all the time. The only problems I had were there were times it didn’t understand what I said. But you can go in and improve the voice recognition of any item so that won’t be a problem. You can also add more items as I said, so that instead of cake mix you can add, German Chocolate cake mix (as I did). So at first it may not be a perfect Smart Shopper for all your specific needs (although it probably has 98% of them)but with very little work it can have anything and everything on there that you would ever want. Oh…and it even has a feature to add errands that you run!! You can put in dry cleaners or shoe repair, library or lottery tickets and like a zillion more!

    $6.99 if you buy it when you purchase the SmartShopper, $7.99 if you’re making a standalone purchase – but either way, it’s a pretty good price!

  24. pestkaj says:

  27. Kelly says:

    You asked if you buy the roll at teh same time, right? so, $6.99 – $1 off buying it separately. :-)
    I try to do something like this system on paper by myself but I swear it takes me longer to organize and write out my list than it takes to do the shopping trip itself! This is a great idea to simplify things!

  28. jamielz says:

    $6.99. By the way, words cannot express how much I want this thing. This may just be the best invention ever!

  29. Ellen C. says:
