Ruth’s Birthday

A vintage list from 7 years ago. A deceptively large shopping list as there are multiple items on each line.

This shopper has planned their menu for the next week with, for example, gammon and squares(?) on Thursday. It looks like Saturday night may have been a night out!

Dog owner.

Hob Wok – Eggs 12 – Dog

A substantial shopping list. Torn paper, black biro.

This person has taken the trouble to enumerate their items:

  • Eggs 12
  • 2 Bags of spinach
  • 1 Carrotts
  • 2 Tomotenen?
  • 2 Pkt garfee?
  • Feet blackberries x 2?

The bottom right of the list makes for an interesting read, sliced chicken, sliced ham, frozen chicken, dog.

Christmas Shopping List

A Christmas shopping list.

Vibrant pink paper.

Some seasonal Christmas food here. Parsnips, nuts, ingredients for trifle. Even Xmas is listed as an item.

The list is from Morrisons yet some items have been specified to be sourced from Costco, Salmon and Pepps (peppers?).

This person enjoys an abbreviation, mushs = mushrooms, pots = potatoes, rasps = raspberries.

Big Candle

One of the smaller shopping lists to be found here. Torn top and bottom from note paper designed for lists.

Just 4 items, wine glasses, wrapping paper, Ibuprofen, big candle. No food. Is one of these items to be wrapped in the wrapping paper?

Brighton Shopping List

Fantastic hand writing on this shopping list.

Ingredients for a chilli con carne perhaps, or at least something of that type. Mince beef, onions, kidney beans, tortilla wraps.

Kidney beans appear twice but are crossed off. Brown sugar is also crossed off. Not required?

Is the small bar of dark chocolate to be added to the cooking, or is it to be had after the meal.

Some writing on the right of the list might be in the same hand, if it is, it was written on an unsteady surface.

A welcome contribution from Brighton, UK.

Feline Busy!

Cat owner. Purrpose made note paper with a feline theme. This person did not paws as they made the list else they would have been late for the shop, a catastrophe. I wish I could have written a list like this, maybe they could show meow.

Mixed capitalisation on this shopping list.

Waffles for break?

Yogs4f?

Torn with Columns

To aid reading whilst dashing through the supermarket, this happy shopper has organised their list into columns. All the staples are here for a large weekly shop.

This person is organised as they have their columns but they also take a pen with them to check items off as they go.

Cheeky Girls

A4 punched and lined paper, folded in half. Vegetarian list which raises a few questions.

Is this person going to buy aloe veras as in multiple plants of that kind or is this something else? Why are they under the section marked green veg (the same could be asked of fruits).

What is defended juice? Could be this https://purearth.co.uk/product/defence-juice-cleanse/

This list has another side to it. On the reverse are names of musical artists. Are these team names, categories, a play list? Further more, do the Cheeky Girls fit into this group?
