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

205 - Fruit Salad

It might not be for a fruit salad, of course, but if this fruit isn't destined for such a dish one can only assume it's for a very fancy fruit bowl. Or a fetching hat.

At least the fruit lover has a social conscience, though. Going along to the Decent Home Workshop surely requires a certain kidn of attitude. Funnily enough, we received a flyer for solar energy installation a couple of days ago. It looks great. I'd like to do it. Sadly, though, we live in a rented flat and I doubt the landlord would be very impressed to return to find a couple of massive solar panels and accompanying batteries stuck on the roof..

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.
