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




136 - Landscape A4


It only struck me when viewing this list that very few (if any) shoppers aling their paper landscape. I guess it's a bit unwieldly. This shopper evidently thought so: they folded the paper lengthways to make two A5-sized portrait areas for listage. I'm a fan of this appalling handwriting as makes things seem quite strange at first glance: "steel wine" and "cocanaitowm milk". I can explain both, by the way: no need to email me on this one :)

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.
