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




116 - Back of the Chippy



The list itself isn't very interesting. The reverse side, however, is. It makes me wonder why so many people in my collection write their lists on the back of printed promotional jotter pads. Are they offended by the advertising?

I've personally never heard of Seafare fish 'n' chips, but a couple of people have been in touch tell me about them. Firstly, Emily wrote on the forum that there's a Seafare chip shop near to where I work - and that their fish is _good_. Secondly, an anonymous emailer got in touch to say that they actually work in a Seafare chippy, and that they have a chain of stores around Surrey and Hampshire. 'That piece of paper you had was from a Seafare notepad that we were giving away to people that bought two fish and chips (if I remember right)'. Let's all go to Seafare! After all, they're purely and simply the best. Spread the word.

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.
