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




060 - Foreign Triangles

Blimey, yet another foreign language list found in New Malden. I've spent some time trying to work out the relevance of the patterns and numbers here, but can only think it's some kind of invasion plan. Either that, or the filled triangles represent bought items and the numbers are...well...I have no idea. There's no way they're cost, that's for sure. Kester, meanwhile, has emailed to let me know that the list is written is Portugese: "presunto" = ham; "leite" = milk. Thanks Kester!

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.
