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




172 - i.e. Graham Norton

Graham Norton doesn't appear on shopping lists very often (or at least not on the ones I find at Tesco), but here he is in all his glory: "Washing up-liquid (small fairy) i.e. Graham Norton". I laughed out loud when I saw him at the bottom of this list, as there is something beautifully artistic about the rest of this list screaming "I AM CHEAP AND FRUGAL!" while Graham himself is generally known for his fashion and dapper appearance. I'd love to find one of his lists, though, and see that he too wants "Anything with a a blue & white stripe less than £1". I wonder what the left hand side has been saved for?

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.
