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




207 - Furniture Restorer


"SUGAR SOAP" and "WOOD WASH" suggest that somebody is planning a weekend of furniture restoring. It may, of course, be a weekend of sorting out the skirting boards for all I know, but the usage still stands.

Something on the list that scarily angered me was that "B D CARD" doesn't say who the card is for. This is a little nasty of me, I feel, as there are many people don't write who the items on their lists are for. Perhaps previous shoppers who have bought birthday cards have simply spoiled me into thinking that I'll find out every person's birthday. Either way, I feel guilty and shamed. But happy birthday anyway!

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.
