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




023 - Scarily Organised


Eeeeeeeek. Never in my life have I seen someone as anal as this. A fully computerised list that evidently features the items they have bought from Tesco in the past, this list has tick-boxes to show which items are required on any particular visit. Options are provided by way of circled words, such as Creme Caramel or Chocolate Mousse, and Cream or Creme Frais. Blimey, I'm glad there's some choice here! Not to let the shopper off, though, strict reminders are given regarding checking the date and condition of eggs. What's more, there's a whole 2nd page! It's not quite as good as the first side, but I love the way that options are given regarding which sweets and lunchpack drinks to buy. Check out the kitchen rolls though - "Bounty look for best offer". I couldn't have said it better myself.

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.
