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




158 - Spam, Ace!


Ace! It features again on this list, over 150 lists after Ace first featured in the Compendium. I don't know what it is, but in the context of it sharing a line with "Spam" I can only think that it's an expression of delight at this processed pork delight. One of the coolest things about this list is that the shopper successfully bought "Spam" (as indicated by it being crossed out), but sadly didn't succeed in buying a "Broom handle". Maybe it's just as well.

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.
