Big Milk, Small Milk, More Meat

A crossed off list shows somebody who takes a pen to the super market. The paper looks to be ripped from another list.

This shopper was looking for two sizes of milk, a Twix, 4 + baguette, fruit, paper cups, W U bowl, c-cumber, BBQ bread and ‘more meat’.

This looks like a BBQ shopping list? It is the right time of year. And what is the little picture in the corner? Some kind of tent?

Room Sticks

This list plays two roles in this person’s day. Firstly it starts as a regular sort of shopping list. 1 x Sweet Pot, pie mix, dates. This list then diverges into a ‘to do’ list. Returning items to Marks and Spencer followed by a list of clothes. I am not sure if these are to returned or to be purchased. The owner then intended to go to Next for some shorts.

The list then returns to its original purpose. Sugar free sweets, ribena etc. I am not sure what Toilet snelly is.

In a cyclical fashion, the list concludes with pie mix.

This is a town centre list with the mixture of clothes and groceries. None of the groceries are too large or heavy so can be carried in bags by one person.

This list was found on 22nd July 2021 in Bridport, Dorset.

Paul To Do – Weds

This is a set of instructions for somebody named Paul, maybe from a Mrs. Paul.

At the heart of the document there is a shopping list:

Juice, something healthy for dinner, Newman’s balsamic dressing, salad bag with iceberg and carrot blended?, mango, pineapple, kiwis.

This list is one I found a few years ago, back in 2017. I am wondering, four years later, is this person is still being given daily instructions on what to do.

Up on a cliff top

I found this list by a bench high up on a cliff on the Dorset coast.

There was a scrap of folded paper laying on the ground which I opened up and low and behold it was a shopping list.

It is a rather short shopping list. Maybe breakfast essentials for some holiday makers in the area.

Reverse Advent

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.

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.
