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

056 - Chicken & Mushroom Slice. Perhaps Not. Oh, Maybe.

Well, here's an indecisive shopper! They initially list "chicken + mushroom slice" but cross it out as they presumably decide they don't want it. What appears only 6 items further on, though? You guessed it - "chicken and mushroom slices" (note the plural). The same goes for "Ryvita", but at least I can understand why they initially thought they could do without that dry old excuse for crackers...

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.
