How Alexa Can Help
Use your Alexa and the Alexa app to coordinate your grocery list while you’re planning at home, or on the go to shop. Imagine having your Alexa in the kitchen, and as you are checking your fridge and pantry to determine what you’re low on, you simply tell Alexa to add an item to your shopping list.

In the future, you could be adding items to your shopping list then getting those items delivered to you via Amazon from Whole Foods!
