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




133 - Dig Biscuits and Reading


Every so often a list comes along with item after item that is worth considering. Firstly, this list's creator has needed to try two different spellings of "Bannana" and "banana" before hitting the right version. They also want some "dig biscuits" which, I can only guess, are eaten by construction workers. Then, towards the bottom of the list are what at first glance appear to be 3 different magazines...but no! Again they have listed the same item twice, but with slightly different spellings. In this case it's "Thames Valley Trader" (which was spelt correctly on the first try and then incorrected on the second).

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.
