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




193 - Emergency Shopping

Two emergency shops in a row? That's right - this list was written by a shopper who just 'popped to the shops' to get a few items for which they had a great need. I suspect that they are shortly to be visited by family (possibly a brother/sister and associated neices and nephews) but I have little grounding for this suggestion. The main clues are that they need "tea bags" and "sugar" to make a cuppa, and "ketchup" for the kids' dinner. "Bleach" will ensure the usually unkempt toilet is suitably pristine, while the "Beef Gravy" is a more adult version of the "Ketchup".

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.
