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




151 - Tin, Tin, Tin


Sprouts?! By the legend of Zelda, why would anyone in their right mind buy sprouts in August? What's even more confusing is that they are prepared to buy fresh sprouts, but only tinned potatoes, carrots and sweet corn. I'm also intrigued by the asterisk "*" at the side of "BACON". Does this signify speciality bacon? I doubt it, since this person eats vegetables out of tins. Does it mean optional? Or possibly there may be a secret part to this list yet to decipher...

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.
