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




137 - Gel Pen Frappé


A great example of the eclecticism of normality is shown by this list. Each and every item can be simply explained, bar the curious inclusion of "Frappé" (note the correct use of the accent on the original list) written in gel pen. Here is a shopper who has the aim of cleaning their kitchen: "Mr Muscle drain unblocker", "Kitchen orange wipes" (presumably orange scented cleaning wipes rather than wipes for cleaning oranges in your kitchen) and "cillit bang".

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.
