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




003 - Gambling Marmite


You either love or hate certain food, and this person evidently loves lots that others hate. Liquorice Allsorts coupled with Marmite would suggest a man in his 60s, especially since he's after some "crumpet". There's so much to like about this list: not only is it written on a betting slip, but the chap evidently sees liquorice allsorts as being something other than sweets.

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.
