The Shopping List Compendium:
a collection of abandoned shopping and grocery lists




001 - Boring Coco Pops

The list that started this fixation! Although eye-catching in its pinkness, this Post-It contains nothing more than a boring list of groceries. The presence of Coco Pops, however, alleviates at least some of the mundaneness. It suggests that the list comes from a household with young children, or from an adult who really needs to grow up and eat something mature like Rice Krispies.

This site is made possible by the kind people who abandon their shopping list at the end of a trip to the supermarket. I collect those shopping lists. You might refer to these as grocery lists, which strikes me as a bit strange because not all the items on the lists are groceries. Anyhow, I won't worry myself about it if you won't.

For those of you who have asked why I do this, please just be content with the fact that I do. I saw a list lying abandoned in a trolley once, and thought, "I'll have that". So I did.

Each shopping list I find is added to my collection along with comments about each list, which usually consist of me spouting on about the possible personality of the person who wrote it. I'm quite harsh at times, at others I feel a pang of compassion. Sometimes I just don't know what items are. Hopefully it will aid your procrastination.
