Description:KEEP TRACK OF FREQUENTLY PURCHASED ITEMS AT YOUR FAVORITE GROCERY, DRUG AND WAREHOUSE STORES
Has Data:Yes
Has Forms:No
Filters:MightyMarket© has been designed to help people who shop infrequently, while simplifying the job for experienced shoppers. It keeps track of often purchased items and their aisle locations within each store.
Sorting:Three stores with aisles are pre-entered. Rename these fields to reflect your own store and aisle names. If you add additional stores, the field type is "Pop-Up," and the items' aisle locations are entered using "Edit Popups." Begin shopping by first doing a forward sort by "Item," then check off your items. Next, enter shopping dates and aisle locations within each store. If your item isn't on the list, create a new record. Enter any coupons you may have for the items you've checked off. NOTE:Some aisle fields are already filled in to demonstrate how MightyMarket© works. Use "Edit Popups" to customize. Create the shopping filter for the first store you are going to visit by setting Filter 1 to "Buy must be checked," and Filter 2 to "AND Aisle Store 1 value not NO VALUE." If you have not yet filled in aisles for all your items at this store, disable Filter 2. If you have, then sort the list by aisle for the first store that you're going to visit.
Reports:Tip: Hiding the other store names in list and record views makes scrolling easier. If you uncheck the "Buy" checkbox when you pick up each item, the item will disappear from your list. If you wish to see the full list again, set Filter 1 for the shopping date. Set a shopping date filter by choosing the "Date" field, and setting its upper and lower limits to the shopping date. MightyMarket© will double check the store's cash register tape if you'd like. Enter the quantity and price per quantity of each item as you shop, and a running total is maintained. For example, if you purchased one green pepper @ $1.79/lb., and it weighed .47 lb., enter .47 in the Qty field and $1.79 in the Price field. MightyMarket© will do the math. If you entered coupons, they will be deducted from the total. Don't forget to allow for taxes when checking against the cash register tape. MightyMarket© doesn't compute taxes because in our state some grocery items are taxable but most are not.
Comments:NOTE: To speed things up, it's recommended that Auto Recalc be turned off. Be sure to recalculate manually before checking the cash register tape. Please drop us a line and let us know how well MightyMarket© works for you. •••• We'd like to acknowledge Fran Tonello, Peter Van Antwerp, and David Devaney for their excellent Applets, "Shopping List," "Grocery List," and "Store List."
