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?

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?

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?

Porridge

Standard list of staples. Bread, milk, butter, cheese etc. interesting the items are grouped into categories. Biscuits appear twice.

Ruled paper has rounded corners on the left hand side and slight tear marks on the right, suggesting it has been torn from a note book.

Tittles – The Dots on Letters i and j

Some people, instead of using a simple dot above the Latin letters i and j, use full blown circles. The owner of this list was one of those people.

Did you know, this tiny, little superscript dot has a name? It is called a tittle.

The tittle on milk is nearly a heart. The tittles on high juice are just the start of circles. The tittles on Pinot Grigio are more fully formed. The tittle on veggie burgers is an ambitious galaxy of a swirl.

Berries & Chicken Pie

Written on a torn off rectangle from an insurance company letter, there is some small print on the reverse.

I am not sure what the horizontal line represents here. It is not likely to be different shops or days.
