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




044 - Thought They'd Thought of Everything


Although this shopper was so organised as to list their items on a computer, they hadn't remembered everything - "cleaner" and "cotton buds" are added in blue ink as emergency items. Another funny thing about this list is that they either want to buy "mum", or the items below this are for their mum. I favour the second option, as nobody in their right mind would list 5 loaves of bread and then a further 2 loaves, as this would be a complete waste of space.

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.
