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




188 - The Gourmet Alternative

Grapeseed oil is a very fancy alternative to olive oil. However, while it costs a fortune, it's also quite economical as you only need about 1/3 amount compared to other cooking oils to achieve the same results. But you probably didn't want to know that. Perhaps you're more interested in the mystery surrounding "Andrews pres & card" at the top of the list. It is, after all, crossed off (the usual sign of a bought item) but I've started thinking that maybe it was crossed off because it wasn't needed. After all, why make a list with the other items but NOT cross them out if you've already been to Tesco?

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.
