I must say that the app is very well designed and appropriately serves the purpose.

Fill all the directed fields including Title, Description, Budget, and Date. Now click on Save button to save this list in the app. You can create multiple shopping lists in the similar way. All you shopping lists will display on the main screen of the app.
