Found on the ground outside the waiting room at Reading Station.
The list reads:
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.
Male or female?
This person needed petrol. This list was used at Morrisons in Reading where there is a petrol station right next to the super market.
Angel Delight and frozen fruit. Was this person whipping up a special retro dessert?
Bans = Bananas
Pots = Potatoes

Perhaps a Christmassy list. Parsnips, roast potatoes, and the ingredients for a trifle.
A female hand. This is an organised person, items have been grouped with their domestic bedfellows and ticked off as obtained.
Was the trifle ever completed? Only the sponge, presumably sponge fingers, (?) have been ticked. Oh dear…
Whisk for the cream or whisky for the sponge?
Sent from Scotland with thanks.

Stir fry, that much is obvious.
And then bolognese?
Nothing else unusual here at all…
Sent from Scotland. Thank you.

This list was found Macey’s grocery store, Pleasant Grove, Utah! Thanks to @Watsonda for sending the list via Twitter
Was this list written for somebody else to buy? They are a funny person with entries such as:
Bread (not nasty)
Miso Paste (comes from being Miso Horny)
Male handwriting? Dog owner?
Here is the shop!

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!
This is a man’s list alright!
Beer, battered chicken, 2 meat feast pizzas, baked beans, cheese, toilet roll and one tomato.
