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




195 - Ian and Me


I'm confused. The circled "M" suggests "me", especially as it is shown as such at the top right corner. However, "Ian" is in a box, but no boxes are used throughout the rest of the list. It could arguably be a title, but I wouldn't have thought that Ian would want "Lge Well Woman". And how about the circled numbers? I assume they are quantities, but combined with the "M" (such as "Meals 4 M") they take on a slightly more suspicious tone. There's also a feeling of confusion around the organisation of the list. Some similar items - the fruit for example - are grouped in a sensible way, but others aren't. All in all, Ian and Me seem to have a curious life.

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.
