In areas of the list neatly fenced off by biro boundaries are food items and fashion/apparel.
This is a rare and coveted multi-shop shopping list.
Aldi, Reading, 29th April 2017
This list is from Livingstone in Scotland where it was used for a reverse advent calendar.
To explain what a reverse advent calendar is:
Firstly you need to grab a basket or box, and every day leading up to Christmas, add something useful to the box.
The idea is that you add 24 items just like an advent calendar.
Then you can donate it to a food bank, a family in need or your church.
A reverse advent calendar is perfect to do as a group too. You can put the box in your classroom, workplace or do it as a larger family group and take turns at adding to it. – https://www.muminthemadhouse.com/reverse-advent-calendar/
Please take some time to see if there is a similar scheme running locally to you at this time of the year, or make a cash donation to your local food bank if you can.
Aldi, Lidl, Morrisons, Livingstone area, Scotland
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”.
Found by Andy, with thanks, at ALDI, Didcot, UK
The following list has been supplied by Southampton Old Lady. My apologies for not publishing sooner. She kindly says:
“Not many lists around at the moment but I found this one for your blog, in a Southampton street. Located between two big hospitals. As training hospitals there are many medics and student medics as my guess that this is from a nurse or training medic.
On one side of the list the shopper is going to five different places
1. Drop off prescriptions
2. Superdrug Pantenne (crossed out) shampoo, good conditioner
3. – Ndoes (Indian name might be collect for or a brand name)
4. Just – Mango!
5. Aldi – ricotta, spinach, mango, pesto, sweet soya
Next it could read Back desk of apt. (apartment)
or it could be Book deck of apt. (appointments) followed by a square.
On the other side of the list is:
Southampton Old Lady”
