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




039 - Viva Espagna

Heyhey! A wonderful list to expand the multi-cultural section fo the site, here's one from Spain. Not really of course (it's from Sainsbury's) but it's written in Spanish. My own Espagnol is a little rusty, though, so I've not got much beyond Bananos. I think this is Spanish for bananas. Can anyone confirm? UPDATE: it appears that someone can! Audrey has emailed to say that she ran "bananos" through altavista and 'it stated that the translation to English is "banana trees". Not sure why someone would need two of them though.' Damn sure!

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.
