AnyLeaf.com

Wouldn’t it be great to be able to compare how much chicken is at Safeway, Lucky, or Whole Foods? Now you can with AnyLeaf. I was excited to meet with the trio of founders (Jeff, Josh, and Jason) from AnyLeaf as they are a local start-up. Being only 20 miles away from me, they drove to my neck of the woods so we could talk about their new venture. The concept is simple but only possible with their programming background.

Say you need to get a few items from the store but don’t know which one is currently offering the best prices. Not only can you now compare prices, you can also see how good of a deal it is in relation to previous weeks. Just type in your zip code and a list of all the deals from the stores near you will come up. As you can see on the following screenshot, Safeway is having Tropicana Pure Premium at the lowest price it’s been in weeks. That means it would be a good time to stock up until the next time this deal rolls around.

You can also filter the results to only list deals from one particular store. And guess what? They just added Target! The Target near me at Bridgepointe Center in San Mateo is currently planning to open a fresh grocery area

But to really appreciate the functionality and value of this site, it really helps to know the background of how it came to be. The creators of AnyLeaf enjoy cooking. Sometimes the just need to get one ingredient but both Safeway and Lucky are the same distance away. Which should they go to? Which one has a better price on the needed ingredient? Jeff, Josh, and Jason felt that AnyLeaf was the answer to fill a market that hadn’t yet been tapped. Some bloggers will post match-ups of current weekly deals at various stores. But those are spread throughout the blogosphere and users need a bit of computer savvy and time to find those. AnyLeaf could be the go-to place in comparison shopping for consumers, specifically mothers.

There are a couple other features available for those that sign up for a free account. You can create an online shopping list to save the trouble of writing one on a Post-It before each shopping trip. There is also the option of marking certain items as favorites and bring able to easily access them. Believe me, there are plenty of deals that you will probably want to share and there’s a link to do that as well.

So what does the name AnyLeaf have to do with grocery shopping? Their answer? They look for grocery deals under ANY LEAF. While the functionality is there and I definitely think it will come in handy, it really needs a facelift. AnyLeaf is constantly growing and new features are added all the time. Soon you will also be able to search drug stores such as Rite-Aid, Walgreens, and CVS. Other grocery store such as Trader Joe’s are in the works but it all depends on how they list their specials and the programming of AnyLeaf. I think this is a great site and will help a lot of people save money, including me. So check it out!

    advertisements that are mailed out weekly AnyLeaf would streamline the comparison-shopping process.
