New app helps you find affordable groceries with special Thanksgiving tool

There’s a new app that lets you compare prices at local grocery stores in real time.

The app is called Cooklist and it matches items on a user’s shopping list to products available at multiple local grocery stores to show price and availability in real time for comparison.

The app is also rolling out a Thanksgiving plan tool that helps plan Thanksgiving dinner in a minute, compare real time prices, and send an order for curbside pickup.

Walmart, Target, Pick ‘ N Save, and Metro Market are all available local grocers for price comparison and ordering through Cooklist .

Cooklist has a premium version that unlocks the ability to order online and this month they are donating all the proceeds to buy Thanksgiving dinners for families in need.

The co-founders of Cooklist say that in the past 30 days over 2,000 people have downloaded the app and matched over $100,000 worth of groceries for comparison.

We hope to keep this conversation going about prices in Madison. News 3 Now wants to know what kind of affordability questions you have, or what you’re experiencing. Let Josh Spreiter know by emailing him or reaching out to him on his Facebook page.
