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




190 - Healthy Eating


I admit that I give junk food lists a hard time, but in reality there's very few of them in the collection. Similarly, though, there are very few outstandingly healthy lists - but this is one of them. The item specific "Healthy Eating" is put at the side of "Mince x 2" and "Cottage Cheese"...and is half written by "Apple + Blackcurrent Squash". Indeed, the shopper was so sure that they wanted a healthy squash, that they initially wrote "Healthy..." but realised their mistake and switched to "No added suagar". There's also a good number of brand names on this list which, along with the "Healthy Eating" specifications, suggests it was written by an organised woman for a somewhat less-organised (or less-trusted) man to actually go shopping with.

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.
