How to make a shopping list that is low-maintenance
People who are keen to keep a low-level list of their favourite brands online tend to focus on the lowest-ranking items, so low-ranking products can be overlooked when shopping.
But a new study by researchers at the University of Michigan suggests that the list could be a good starting point for keeping the list simple and low-tech.
Read moreA study by the University at Buffalo, University of Texas at Austin, and the University College London examined a variety of online shopping strategies, from low-effort shopping to full-blown shopping lists, and found that people who keep a list of the most popular brands online are far more likely to purchase those brands than those who keep their list simple.
“Our findings suggest that a simple shopping list can help individuals save money and get more done online,” said lead researcher, Professor Brian R. Gelfand, an assistant professor of computer science and a professor of information systems and systems engineering.
“For example, a simple list of your favourite brands could save you money on shipping, while a more complicated list could lead to more time spent online.”
To help get the low-brow lists out there, the researchers used a system they call “the list as a service” (LASS).
A simple list is one that stores all of your favorite brands on a single, single website.
This means that if someone goes to your site, finds your brand, and then visits your brand’s website, that person doesn’t have to spend a lot of time doing anything to access the brand’s site.
Instead, they can just click on the button that says “Get Started.”
This simple interface allows users to create lists and browse them from the home screen, without having to enter any passwords or other login credentials.
Once created, users can easily share lists to other sites.
“People may want to store their list as simple as possible, and we wanted to test whether it was as easy as making a simple online shopping list,” said Gelf and co-author Jonathan J. Cottrell.
“When people create a simple LASS list, they save a lot more money on online shipping, and they get the most out of their shopping experience by saving time.
LASS lists are a great way to get started with your list.”
The LASS service works differently than other forms of online sharing, including sharing on social media.
Users only have to enter a list name, an optional URL for sharing, and a description.
The site allows users, for example, to “add links to brands from your list,” or “submit items to retailers.”
The site also supports “shared lists,” which is where a single person can create lists of up to 15 items.
The authors say this allows for a much higher degree of collaboration and collaboration, which could be crucial in a low budget shopping list.
“The idea behind shared lists is to get other people involved, which may mean having to share your list to retailers, so they can see and contribute to the list,” explained Gelf.
“A shared list of 15 items is a really simple and straightforward way to share lists, but we found that the shared list experience is not always great.”
The researchers found that if people were not able to see their list on a website, the results were similar.
“People don’t necessarily want to see a simple lists on their own, so it is nice to have an easy way to access your lists, even if they are not directly in your browser,” said J. Michael Gelf, a research assistant in the School of Computer Science at the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School.
“It is easier for people to browse your lists than to search for them, and it also helps them keep track of the list.
In our experiment, people found that when they clicked on the link to see the list, their browser showed a different list than when they didn’t click on it.
People were also able to add items without having the entire list displayed on their screen, so the list is easily searchable.”
While the LASS website is not as intuitive as some other sharing solutions, it’s easy to use and has the potential to make it easier for anyone to create a lowbrow list online.
In fact, the LASTS website can be easily integrated into an existing website to make your shopping list even easier.
“There is a way to create an LASS and an LAS, and these can be made on the web,” said co-lead researcher Jonathan J Cottrel.
“We used an API for this, so people can easily create their own lists.”
For people who are more tech-savvy, the authors recommend that people use the Lass app to store a shopping listing and the LST platform to manage their shopping lists.
“One of the benefits of LASS is that it makes it easy to keep track, but also easy to edit,” said Cottred.
“By using the LBS platform, you can
