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




204 - Tins Plum Easy Husay



As with a few of my lists, it's opposite side that is of most interest. Indeed, the list itself on is just a bit illegible, presenting as it does "TINS PLUM EASY HUSAY". Any ideas?

The reverse side of the list, however, offers an astounding insight into the life of the shopper. I have disguised the personal details to protect the shopper's identity...not that they probably know that they're on here. Then again, why write a list on the back of this letter - and leave it in yoru trolley at the end of the trip - if you're bothered about privacy? I guess one suggestion is that the shopper has their midn on other things. Either way, I hope her husband's discharge from Emberbrook goes smoothly...as does the "care manager".

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.
