Making grocery lists and sticking to them saves money and guards against impulse buys, except, of course, when you forget them at home, which can happen to the best of us. Okay, namely, me.

On such an occasion, one might wander the aisles trying to visualize the list, or perhaps engage in time-consuming games of word association with little success.

Self-described as "the ultimate cooking utensil" with a super cute name, Seattle, Wa.-based, Kitchen Monki and like-minded Sterling, Va.-based ZipList both offer online venues to store recipes, plan meals, and automate grocery lists -- for free.
