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




051 - Multiple Choice Computerisation

Similar to Scarily Organised, this shopper has a standard computer file on which unneeded items are crossed out prior to commencing the trip. I worry, however, that they class a pre-prepared beef lasagne as "Finest Meals". Despite this set-back they also have some excellent items listed: "Wine (and lots of it!)" and "Beers (including the occasional Russian one)". I like that. Maybe they're not as cretinous as "Finest Meals" would suggest.

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.
