Python | Maintaining Grocery list

  • Difficulty Level : Easy
  • Last Updated : 23 Aug, 2021

Problem Statement : 
Make a Grocery List for super market shopping with name, price and quantity; if the list already contains an item then only update the price and quantity it should not append the item name again. Ask user his/her budget initially 
and minus the budget after adding a new item in the list. If budgets go zero/0 then no more item could be bought and if some money left and user add item greater than budget left then inform “over price” or any other message. After the list is made any money left in the budget it should show an item within the budget from the list made. 
VALIDATION is a must.

User GO with following question 
Enter Your budget : 500 
1.Add an item
Enter your choice : 1

Enter product : corn flour
Enter quantity : 1.5 kg
Enter Price : 100

Amount left : 400

1.Add an item
Enter your choice : 1

Enter product : wheat
Enter quantity : 2 kg
Enter Price : 100

Amount left : 300

1.Add an item
Enter your choice : 1

Enter product : corn flour
Enter quantity : 2 kg
Enter Price : 250

Amount left : 150

1.Add an item
Enter your choice : 1

Enter product : rice
Enter quantity : 5 kg
Enter Price : 300

Can't Buy the product ###(because budget left is 150)

1.Add an item
Enter your choice : 1

Enter product : xyz 
Enter quantity : 1 kg
Enter Price : 50

Amount left : 100

1.Add an item
Enter your choice : 2

Amount left can buy you wheat 

Product name   Quantity   Price
corn flour      2 kg        250
wheat           2 kg        100
xyz             1 kg         50

Try to understand the above Problem statement and output explanation and try it yourself before going to the solution

                    print("\namount left", s)
        # if budget goes zero print "NO BUDGET"
        elif s<= 0:

    print("\nAmount left can buy you a", na[pr.index(s)]) 
print("\n\n\nGROCERY LIST")
# print final grocery list
