The Day I Hit The Jackpot

This list was kindly donated back in November 2017, a long time ago. I am very sorry to say that the email address I use for shopping list donations has not been looked at for that long, as for some reason I could not log in to the account.

The issue has been fixed today!

Here is the text accompanying the donation:

I spotted this list on the floor of the newly renovated Coles supermarket in Myrtleford, Victoria, Australia. I didn’t hesitate a second to swoop on it.

The item “Listerine Tabs” intrigued me, I didn’t know Listerine came in tablets. When looking online to find out more about this, I found a report on a student’s project, to design travel packs of the tablets. I’d sure buy them!

I have no idea what Tomato-Corri could be, unless it’s 2 separate items, the second being Coriander.

Then, I noticed that the list was written on the back of a receipt from the only other supermarket in town, Foodworks. This shopper seems to be a good recycler!

This second photo shows what he/she bought at Foodworks, 4 days earlier.

Many thanks for the submission and sorry for the 2 year delay in posting.

Victoria Biscuit Selection

Baby Pot, swede, butter, cherry tom, sweetheart, broc rice, royals x 4 and of course, mange.

Vegetarian menu, two types of potatoes.

This list is written on the reverse of a label. A price label from a supermarket shelf. Did the person find the label at the supermarket and write the list there. Or did they get the label on a previous trip, take it home and write the list? Or maybe, they work at a super market, take these labels home in bulk and use them for general notes and list making.

The label is for this fine product, McVities Victoria Biscuit Selection – “Turn any occasion into a celebration”.

Nice!

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.
