WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA) -- A trip to the grocery store can be risky for your wallet and waistline.

So, to save some cash throughout your shopping trip, ShopSmart Magazine recommends a smartphone app, like Pushpins

It lets your family sync up the shopping list and scan items to find digital coupons.

They also recommend the I-Q app.  You can shop and share your grocery lists by scanning bar codes.  There's also a function to search for coupons.

Giant Food App

Whole Foods App   

Sync your lists with the supermarket's loyalty program to spot savings more readily. 

And, don't discard low tech tips when you hit the aisles.  A list can help shoppers avoid the many tasty temptations that can cost money and calories.

Now here's something to chew on, too.  The most common popular discount coupons are for cookies, snacks and preprocessed foods.

So use them in moderation, no matter how good the deal looks.
