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




165 - A Hiker's Dinner


This list is special. It was found, about 5 miles from the nearest town, on a bridge over the Shifford Lock Cut when Alice and I walked the Thames Path at the start of August 2005. Presumably lost by a fellow hiker, it shows that hiker-appetites remain consistently simple: a tin of "condense chicken soup" with a bit of "curry powder" to pep things up a bit. How frugal!

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.
