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




199 - Apples May Not Be Fruit

Grouping by category is a sensible and oft-used shopping list management technique. However, when one is faced with only one item for a category the system sometimes falls down. In this shopper's case such trivialities are ignored - bung them in a category area anyway! Hence we end up with "pizza bases" or "chips" stuck in the middle of a sea of white paper. Similarly with "sliced", but I have no idea what exactly is being sliced in this instance. I like the suggestion that "apples" may not be "fruit" as they are singled out from the general.

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.
