Get Started: Using Ziplist

Update: We no longer partner with Ziplist on our site utilizing their print/save recipe buttons. We love the service and think that if you are looking to create just a grocery list for yourself, it is a great tool. The links below will still allow you to utilize their service as will their browser buttons. Given that we have our own software system for freezer cooking, we did not want to confuse our readers between which buttons are ours and which are theirs.

Months and months ago we added a little blue button to recipes that you may or may not be using. If you aren’t using it, you should. It is your one click method for adding your favorite recipes on Once a Month Mom to a recipe box and/or shopping list.

I currently have a weekly shopping list set up on my Ziplist that I regularly add recipes to so I can both check my pantry and survive the grocery store without forgetting key items.

You can print your Ziplist grocery list or if you have an iPhone or Android you can get it right on your phone as they have a great application. I love having my grocery list at my fingertips because if I have to rely on printing it I am going to forget the list SOMEWHERE 9 times out of 10. Now my biggest challenge is convincing my toddler that I need my phone at the grocery store more than she does! And she is persuasive.

Here is a quick glance on how to get started with Ziplist for Once A Month Mom recipes and how to get a FREE account if you haven’t already done so. There are also tons of other bloggers, perhaps your favorites, using Ziplist too making your grocery shopping that much easier.

    I recently started using Ziplist and LOVE it! Thanks for the info! The only thing that I can’t figure out is how to send my list from either my iphone or the web to my dh’s non-smart phone so he can go to the grocery store with the list. Would beat trying to print it out! :)

    I LOVE ziplist!! My favorite part is the recipe clipper. I can pull any recipe from any website and put it directly in my recipe box. Super convenient.

    Ziplist + OAMM = Happiness

    Thank you so much for the wonderful resources you provide, and a great tool to help utilize all the information.
    I don’t know how I got along before ziplist. Love the app as well, always have my list with me on my phone.

    How do you put the whole January 2012 OAMM on ziplist? Do I have to click each recipe individually or is there a way to add them at once?

  5. Sara says:

    I like the ziplist, but not all recipes have the ziplist button. Some of the recipes are linked to the website they came from, not to a page on the OAMM website. Those recipes don’t have a ziplist button. How do I add those to my ziplist?

    I’m new to this site. I was very excited to join (still am)but one of the main reasons I did was bc you had a paleo menu. My 2yr old daughter and I cannot have any grains (a paleo diet) but when going through the paleo recipes, found several recipes that were not paleo at all. They either had bread in them or corn, rice, etc…
    Is there a reason why these are listed in a ‘paleo’ menu list or is it that the person compiling the paleo menu doesn’t know what a true paleo diet is (asking in a respectful, not rude manner)?

    • Kelly says:

      Welcome Kimberly! We take a lot of pride in our Paleo menu and there are a few of us here that follow the lifestyle very strictly so we know what is and what is not acceptable. The Paleo menus are reviewed and all recipes fit within the guidelines. I’d like to know what menus you are looking at where you see those ingredients. If you do it could be a recipe that we have adapted in our recipe cards to be more Paleo friendly, and we simply link to the original blog where we got our inspiration to adapt. If you have more questions please feel to contact me directly at kelly at onceamonthmom.com

    Where did the Ziplist buttons go? I so love using this site with Ziplist and I cannot find them on the recipes anymore!

    Hi – you should probably take this tutorial down. I just sighed up, and this function was the reason I did – I’d much rather take my phone than a piece of paper to the store. Then I spent the next 20 minutes confused why I couldn’t get it to work. It wasn’t until I read down through the comments before I realized that the functionality explained in the video doesn’t work any more. I’ll try setting it up with the clipper on the toolbar, but it would have been nice to not have been mislead/confused first.

    • Katie says:

      Hi Kim! Yes, I do see how it’s confusing with the post still up. We will definitely at least update the post to notify people of the change. If you are looking to use Ziplist to create a menu with a grocery list, you can now do that through Menu Builder as well. You can also access Menu Builder on your phone or tablet so you don’t have to use paper. If you have questions, please let me know!
