MY FRIDGE CONTENT – SCAN ITEMS & VIEW STORAGE
There are several ways to get items into your fridge. You can scan items from your phone or tablet. If you have a webcam or camera on your computer then you can use that as well. However, bringing your tablet or phone into the kitchen is probably your best bet! Remember, you need to log in just like you would on the website. I would suggest bookmarking your log in screen so it is easy to find the next time you go to scan items. See View Storage for manual item entry.
View Storage – Add, Modify and Sort
Everything in your Fridge can be viewed here. These items can also be modified and sorted. When entered, each item will be assigned an expiration date that is one year out. Your item’s bar code does not include expiration date so any items you wish to track must have date modified here. You only need to modify the expiration date on those items that you wish to track. Double click any item displayed and select edit information to modify. If you have assigned the item a location you can sort that as well. It is very handy to sort only freezer items rather than digging thru to see what you have. Custom locations can also be created, for example, garage freezer.
To enter items manually select the Add button. Fill out the fields. Product image is not required; however, I like to get mine from a Google image search. You can also use your camera. Click here for a short video describing how this is done.
Please play around with this area. Eventually we will be getting a manual together for this but don’t quite have it yet! You should be able to learn by trial and error. However, I do want to talk a bit about groups.
CREATING GROUPS – WHY AND HOW YOU WOULD DO THIS
First of all this is one of my favorite features. I am not a huge fan of Facebook. There is just way too much to look at and a lot of advertising. This is a more personal approach. You can form a small group. Sample groups are: your family, book club, Theatre Company, place of worship etc. Then in that area you can share recipes, photos and videos.
Once you form your group you can make it private or public. You can also customize the header and just have some fun! Let me know what you think.
AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE
This site was built since so much revolves around food right now and managing what you have in your refrigerator can be helpful. Having your own special spot on the internet is also nice.
We make no claims or promises to keep this site active. I am hoping to get enough donations so that I can keep it alive without charging people to use it. I think we are in a really difficult time. Perhaps this will bring a little pleasure.
If you have any website needs we hope you will consider using CompleteWebCare.com.
If you have any questions or issues please feel free to contact me thru the contact link on your main menu. Remember also this is a work in progress
