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




142 - Service Sue


Strictly speaking this isn't a shopping list. I know - I probably shouldn't feature it here - but I have done, so tough. I like this though. It was found in a shopping trolley, alongside "141 - Pampered".

It's strange that the shopper took a hair appointment card to the supermarket with them, and abandoned it. It's even stranger that the card simply features "Sue"'s phone numbers (which I've disguised in order to stop any weirdos out there trying to call the poor woman). Perhaps it's not an appointment card at all, but simply someone noting down a friend's phone number. Is, therefore, the shopper of "Pampered" a hairdresser? Or is the shopper's name Sue? So many possibilities!

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.
