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




098 - Water


The temperature has recently been over 32'C, which is damned hot for the UK. I've noticed a direct correlation between the rising temperature and the number of people with drinks on their lists. Take this one for example: "Water". Short and simple. And hopefully he's got enough to provide his 2litres of water a day. Now, why do I say "his"? Simple: he lists "shampoo". Nice and general. And many thanks to Margaret for correcting my spelling and grammar in this comment - I have a shamed feeling of pot and kettle...

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.
