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




088 - Night Cream


Is "Night Cream" some kind of moisturiser to put on before going to bed? I guess that might explain it. However, it doesn't explain the strange spacing between listed items. Perhaps it's some kind of code that reveals the true Holy Grail. Or maybe that's a bit too Dan Brown.

Martin, who has already lent his help with Meash Pwd again thinks he's worked it out. He says: 'It is spaced for a very good reason, a reason so simple its cunning is blinding. This is a regular everyday supermarket shopper you have here. Everything is written in the order the goods appear on a trip round most big supermarkets (this fitted pretty well to Tesco). The spacing is because the lister was someone who pictured their trip around the shop and jotted the list with plenty of room for additions.'

Good work, Martin!

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.
