The Staples List is the place to store items that you purchase frequently and want to remember when you are making your shopping list, but will not show up in your shopping list because they aren't ingredients in recipes. This might be things like bananas, apples, trash bags, paper towels, or shampoo.

You can access your Staples List by tapping on the header labeled "Shopping List" and then tapping on "Staples List" in the menu that comes down. 

 In the top right corner of your Staples List you will see a menu button that will allow you to manage your Staples List Settings. You can manage your Categories, Stores, set your list to Metric measurements, or set your list to hide purchase items.  

Customize your categories by pressing the "Manage Categories" option.

You can delete existing categories by tapping on the trashcan icon located to the right of the category name or edit the existing name by tapping inside of the text field. You can also add new categories by entering them in the first data field and then tapping "add." Save your changes.

To edit the Stores on your List, tap on "Manage Stores" in the List Settings Menu. You can then delete existing stores by tapping on the trashcan icon located to the right of the Store name or edit the existing name by tapping inside of the text field. You can also add new Stores by entering them in the first data field and then tapping "add." Save your changes. 

Selecting the Metric option will convert both the measurements in your recipes and the ingredients on your Shopping List to metric measurments. 

Selecting "Hide Purchased" will hide all of your purchased items from the list. If you choose to leave your purchased items visible, they will be listed with a strikethrough.

After adding items to your Staples List, you can begin moving them over to the Shopping List when you are ready to purchase them. Simply select a single item or a group of items by placing a checkmark in the box to the right of the item names. 

After selecting items, you will be prompted to move these items to your Shopping List. This prompt will appear at the bottom of your list.

All items will be placed on your Shopping List, in the stores designated on your Staples list. 

If you need to purchase them from a different store then they are currently listed in, you can make this change and save the items to your Shopping List.
