An app that refills your grocery list for you when you finish an item you bought previously.

The app would collect consumer data on how close together purchases of the same item are made to deliver suggestions of when to refill/add an item to your list based on how quickly others have needed it refilled. To do one better, it would provide suggestions based on consumers who have similar demographics (more frequent suggestions for families compared to single young professionals) and buying habits. Furthermore, it would also utilize machine learning and data analysis to recommend new recipes and their items to add to your cart. Think of it as a “For You” page for your fridge.

I hope you enjoyed peeking into what I envision for my home of the future based on my pain points of the present.

Thank you for reading!
