There are your basic iPhone apps that everyone knows about that really make our day (Facebook, Instagram, The Weather Channel, Pinterest). Here are a few more that you might not know about that I love.

Grocery IQ – FREE – Using your phone as your grocery list is not a new idea. However, this app has some features that make life easier. Store certain items as favorites like milk and bread so you don't have to look them up each time. One click checking off of items. Make different lists for different stores. You can also search coupons for the items on your list then have then sent from the app to your e-mail to print. Store your grocery savings card. Sync the list with more than one device. And my favorite – track the regular price of items. Then you will know if its really on sale.
