Getting Started with Shopping Lists

Cozi lets the family manage shopping lists from any computer or mobile device. Everyone sees the same lists, and you can access any list from your mobile phone when you’re in the store.

Adding and sorting list items

Reordering items
  • To add an item, select a list, type an item, and then press Enter.
  • To create categories within a list, type the category header using all capital letters. For example, if you would like to organize your shopping list by type of food, you could add categories like PRODUCE or DAIRY.
  • To move items within a list, drag the item you want to move, and drop it where you want it to be displayed. On the web, drag with cursor; in the apps, press the three horizontal lines to the right of the item.

Checking items off a list

  • To check items off a list, click the box to the left of the item. You’ll see a check mark appear next to the item, as well as a line running through the item.
  • To remove items from a list on the web, check off the items and use the Remove menu at the top of the page.
  • To remove list items in the apps, check off the items and use the action buttons at the bottom of the screen.
  • To keep a master list of frequently purchased items, check off items you don’t need to purchase in a particular shopping trip, then uncheck to add items back to the list.
