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




012 - Butter Coupon


Here's someone who is so keen to save a few quid, they write COUPON twice on the list to remind themselves about the offer they can have on Lurpak Spreadable. I like seeing that level of desperation. I think it's also quite cool the Oxo cubes are defined as Red, Chicken and Italian. Surely this shopper should decide on one format: Red, Yellow and Green, OR Beef, Chicken, Italian. The back of Butter Coupon features this fantastic draft of a letter, demonstrating to us that the shopper runs some kind of casino. Cool! What I find particularly endearing about the casino is that the croupiers are listed at the top: Tessa, Angie, Lyn ... and Pierre!

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.
