Out of the class topic but, what should I do if i wanted to use SLEEP at the end to print the list with good style?

import time shopping_list = []

def add_to_list(item): shopping_list.append(item) print("You item was added!, the number of items you have currently is {}".format(len(shopping_list)))

def show_list(): print("Here is your list:") for item in shopping_list: print(item)

def show_help(): print("What should we pick up at the store?") print(""" Enter DONE to stop adding items. Enter HELP for this help. Enter SHOW to show your total list """)

show_help() while True: new_item = input("> ") if new_item == "DONE": break elif new_item == "HELP": show_help() continue elif new_item == "SHOW": show_list() continue

add_to_list(new_item)

show_list()

Hey Derek Graham Chema ! :wave:

Since you already have time imported, you can simply add a time.sleep() call adding in a number of seconds in the parenthesis wherever you'd like a pause in your script. You can read more about it here
