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




152 - Rudimentary Ranking


This is the first time I've ever seen somebody number their items. It's not, however, the first time I've seen someone spell "bannanas" incorrectly. This list delights me as it's a curious mix of the vague ("8. -> something for dinner") and the specific ("9. small tins of Baked Beans". Plus they've put the "12. Lost Boys DVD" on there, a curious addition to a seemingly normal shopping lists. Seemingly normal apart from the desire for "Rhaubarb yoghurts", that is. I don't even fancy trying rhubarb yoghurts, let alone with an errant "a" thrown in for good measure. Still, at least they gave the list a title so they wouldn't get confused. Aaah, bless.

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.
