Pacific North West, USA

This is the first list on www.theshoppinglists.com from the United States.  Woo!

The list was very kindly donated by Rockie from Portland, Oregan.  My guess is that this is a top up shop rather than a large weekly visit.  Items on the menu for the next couple of days could include a salad with lettuce, cucumber? Maybe some Mexican food with the rice, beans and salsa and bagels with cream cheese for lunch?

I had never heard of Mr Stubbs and his BBQ sauce before so here is more info for those who are interested: http://www.stubbsbbq.com/

Apparently, “This is the real deal, the original.  And its tangy tomato, vinegar, molasses and black pepper are gonna treat you right.”

Rockie has great handwriting but in case you need help making it out, the items are:

Salad, Olive Oil, Dish soap, Potatoes, Bread, Peanut Butter, Bagels / Cheese, Lettuce, Doritos, Rice, Beans, Salsa, Lunch Meat, Carrots, Cucumber, Mr Stubbs BBQ

The food was purchased from Fred Meyer here https://www.fredmeyer.com/stores/details/701/00040

Any questions and comments are welcome!

W’ U Liquid

Normal list, tea, milk, washing up liquid, salad, fruit, sauce….  but wait a second, what are coatings?

I like the flair on the dot on the i in liquid.  And I like the apostrophe in the abbreviation of washing to ‘w’.

Interesting person.  Good work.

Choc Twist

Donated by a generous benefactor, this list has 11 items excluding mysterious line 8 which has been crossed out.  I believe it may say ‘ice cre’ but I may be mistaken.

I would suggest the list was written in three sections at different times.  Down to Evian is all capitalised, then comes the crossed off item in what looks to be lower case and then there is the third contribution in different pen.

This list is very Summery, you will not see these items listed in a few months time (unless you are in the southern hemisphere).

Salad, Tomato, Heartburn

I would guess that this shopper works for http://matrixprecision.com and nipped out at lunch time to get the groceries after jotting down the essentials on a company note pad.

 A pretty normal list but one could question the juxtaposition. Salad, tomato, heart burn. Toilet Roll, Gravy.

The list could be for a multigenerational family, Horlicks, marmalade and the old fashioned ‘f’ suggest somebody of a certain age but then there are some contemporary items like stir fry and smoothies. Mmm.
