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




177 - A Cat Called Arnie

This list offers such an insight into part of this shopper's life that it should be used a blueprint by other list writers. Most interestingly, we learn that the shopper has a cat called Arnie, as evidenced by "Arnie food + litter". Admittedly, this item could be construed as being that someone called Arnie needs some food and needs to take the litter out...but I doubt it. The reason I know that Arnie is a cat is that the shopper also bought "Waltham sensitivty control". Google leapt to my rescue to reveal that this is "a highly digestible, hypoallergenic diet for kittens and cats". So, Arnie is quite a poorly cat: Get well son, Arnie!

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.
