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

138 - Cheese Cocktail

I don't fancy the sound of a "cheese cocktail". Now, I like cheese and I like cocktails - but it doesn't strike me to be a particularly tasty combination. This particular list has an interesting backstory to it as well. This is one of two lists that were found IN THE SAME TROLLEY! Even more spectacularly, they were in the trolley I used for some promotional photos for a feature in the magazine Collect It! which will hopefully be published in the next couple of months. Keep your eyes peeled...

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.
