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




130 - Indented Organisation


Look at the bottom right corner of this list, and worship its creator. Not only has the entire list been organised into categories, but subheadings have been used below which are featured list items. The evident fruit and veg section gives way to "Salad", indented below which are "lettuce", "cuc" (presumably cucumber), "celery" and so on. "P.S." I'm guessing is potato salad. To be honest, however, I don't care if I'm wrong on this one - I'm just grateful that this person has shared their supreme organisation with us.

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.
