At the Station

Found on the ground outside the waiting room at Reading Station.

The list reads:

Peppers

Parsnips?

Onions

Courgettes?

Broccoli

Milk

V. Parmesan

—-

Butter?

The list has been walked on as has the indication of sole prints upon it. The person is buying no meat or carbohydrates. Spelling not perfect.

A top up shop. Likely from a town centre shop rather than a supermarket.

Petrol & Pots, Bans & Bread

Male or female?

This person needed petrol. This list was used at Morrisons in Reading where there is a petrol station right next to the super market.

Angel Delight and frozen fruit. Was this person whipping up a special retro dessert?

Bans = Bananas

Pots = Potatoes

Whisk or Whisky?

Perhaps a Christmassy list. Parsnips, roast potatoes, and the ingredients for a trifle.

A female hand. This is an organised person, items have been grouped with their domestic bedfellows and ticked off as obtained.

Was the trifle ever completed? Only the sponge, presumably sponge fingers, (?) have been ticked. Oh dear…

Whisk for the cream or whisky for the sponge?

Sent from Scotland with thanks.

All the way from Utah!

This list was found Macey’s grocery store, Pleasant Grove, Utah! Thanks to @Watsonda for sending the list via Twitter

Was this list written for somebody else to buy? They are a funny person with entries such as:

Bread (not nasty)

And

Miso Paste (comes from being Miso Horny)

Male handwriting? Dog owner?

Here is the shop!

Grilled courgettes, aubergines with tarater?

‘106’

Comments:

This person is a planner.

They are deciding that some tasks should be done the “day before”.

They are referencing page numbers from a cook book, likey from the popular TV host, Nigella Lawson.

They likely bank at Barclays, are female, right handed and recycle.

Pacific North West, USA

This is the first list on www.theshoppinglists.com from the United States.  Woo!

The list was very kindly donated by Rockie from Portland, Oregan.  My guess is that this is a top up shop rather than a large weekly visit.  Items on the menu for the next couple of days could include a salad with lettuce, cucumber? Maybe some Mexican food with the rice, beans and salsa and bagels with cream cheese for lunch?

I had never heard of Mr Stubbs and his BBQ sauce before so here is more info for those who are interested: http://www.stubbsbbq.com/

Apparently, “This is the real deal, the original.  And its tangy tomato, vinegar, molasses and black pepper are gonna treat you right.”

Rockie has great handwriting but in case you need help making it out, the items are:

Salad, Olive Oil, Dish soap, Potatoes, Bread, Peanut Butter, Bagels / Cheese, Lettuce, Doritos, Rice, Beans, Salsa, Lunch Meat, Carrots, Cucumber, Mr Stubbs BBQ
