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




200 - Vital Pies

My 200th list, and fortunately one that's got a bit of character to it! Althought the emergency "Hoi Sin Sauce" stands out due to the blue pen in which it's written, I'm convinced that "Pies" are viewed as the most important item by the shopper due to the double - yes, double - underlining! Quantities of items are highlighted also, demonstrating the necessity of getting the correct amount. This may well be a list written for a mn by a woman. Perhaps he added "Pies" himself - it certainly seems to be written in a different handwriting! The asterisks are strange, though, mainly because they are usually used to identify important items. In this list, though, they pale into insignificance compared to the double underlining technique. Shoppers, take note: a new hierarchy of necessity has been created!

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.
