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.

Coles, Myrtleford, Australia 

Rosa’s Birthday

This just in from Yvonne, our own very special Australian correspondent (her blog can be found here).
“I was standing in the queue and spotted this list clutched in the fist of the shopper ahead of me. I made her an offer she couldn’t refuse (you don’t want to know), and I became the proud owner of the list.
It was at the Coles Supermarket, Myrtleford. Cheers!”

There are many points of interest here, it does indeed to appear to be Rosa’s Birthday and Rosa’s will be getting a scarf and card at least – maybe some eggs too? I am not sure if the carpet cleaner is for her.

The ‘Spray and Wipe’ is not a brand we have in the UK, a quick Google shows this: Colgate Ajax Spray n Wipe 

Now, about the wire wool… The list so far is pretty typical with the usual mix of food stuff and cleaning bits, but wire wool? This is a strange addition, maybe a little too strange as the author hastily crossed it off the list shortly after adding it.

The note paper is is great with tea and cakes shown, the handwriting is female. 

Many thanks Yvonne, what did you have to promise to get your hands on this list? Whatever it was, it is much appreciated.

Eggs Rosa, Money, cucumber, potatoes, red onions, cos lettuce, cream x 2, bacon, deodorant, spinach, vanilla, mushrooms, coffee beans, washing power, toilet cleaner, spray n wipe, toilet things, steel wool, dishwasher cleaner, b’day card Rosa, scarf for Rosa, preen carpet cleaner.
