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, in the Add New Item field, type an item, and then press Enter .
  • To create a category header 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 and drag the item to the new location.

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, tap the menu (on the top right corner next to the plus sign) and select Delete checked.
  • To keep a master list of frequently purchased items, create a new list specifically for these items, check off items as you shop, and when you’re finished shopping select the option to Uncheck all to add items back to the list.
