Don’t think you have enough hours in the day to do everything on your to-list? These apps for moms are changing the way people shop and manage time.

Whether you’re looking for great deals or just want to manage your time more efficiently, there’s an app for that. 

The following apps are some of my favorites for saving time and money.

Grocery Gadget

This cool app lets you easily organize and manage your grocery lists, coupons, and recipes either online or on your smartphone. If you manage your lists online, it easily syncs to your phone.

An especially handy feature of this shopping app is its ability to scan the barcode of the items that you buy. You can also create other shopping categories to handle all of your errands during the day.

As you check off the items on your list, Grocery Gadget even remembers the order in which you check items off for your next shopping trip.

Grocery Gadget comes in a full and free version (Grocery Gadget Lite). It is compatible with the IPhone, IPad, ITouch, various Android phones, Blackberry, Nokia, and Windows Phone. Read MacWorld’s Grocery Gadget review for more information.
