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




175 - Lined Categories

It seems that this shopper has attempted to group their items into categories, but the theory behind it is flawed. "Cornflakes": cereals. "Jotters 2": stationary. "Rice" and "Pasta": dried goods. But then the wildcard - a barely legible "Salads" - is in the dried goods section. Is this list, therefore, divided into categories or is some darker and more mysterious force at work here?

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.
