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




070 - Stolen Apples

I may, of course, be wrong about the stolen apples. Let me explain why I have come to that conclusion though. The list is fairly normal (although someone who buys a "Brush" alongside "soup" is maybe not completely normal). However, apples are not mentioned anywhere on the list BUT two "Crisp and Refreshing EMPIRE 4124" apple stickers are stuck onto the list. I think it's doubtful that the shopper took apples along on their shopping trip, and similarly doubtful that the shopper would buy apples when they are not featured on their list. Well, maybe not doubtful, just cheating.

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.
