LadyMissB20 has kindly found and shared the below list. This is one of two to be published.
She says, “I couldn’t believe my luck when I saw my first list but to find a second so soon after was amazing! I saw it folded up and picked it up and took it away without even looking at it, as the security guard was already looking at me oddly for the time I was taking at the self-service checkout!”
The coke, crisps, and bag of ice suggests items for a party, maybe a children’s party. The Dairy milk could be part of that too.
Pineapple and 2 lots of macaroni don’t fit in to the party theme, although the pineapple could be used a la 1970’s with chunks of pineapple and cheese on cocktail sticks and stuck into an orange!
Found at Morrison’s, Livingston 17.01.17″
Our kind contributor says:
“items are mackerel, salad leaves, tomatoes, mini mozzarella, peppers, mushrooms, pine nuts. List has been written on a small post it note. Maybe a last minute list before leaving work to get items on way home but the writing is quite neat.
This suggests to me someone who is trying to eat healthily.
Looks like a one meal shop.They are probably going to have a salad with mackerel, sun dried tomatoes, peppers, the mini mozzarella and possibly the pine nuts. I wouldn’t personally put mushrooms in a salad, but others might.
Found at Lidl, Livingston, 16.01.17”
Many thanks to LadyMissB20 for finding this gem of a news story.

This list was found in Reading town centre and is a non food list. The owner needed to visit the bank and do a spot of clothes shopping before dealing with ‘hair stuff’.
This is a back of an envelope list with a little squiggle below the text to make sure the pen is working.
Jeans, bank, hair stuff, shampoo, jumper.
Found 6th January 2017
Reading town centre
This list was very kindly contributed by Peter BC.
Now this is beyond the banalities of the regular supermarket trolley. This list was found in a church!
Peter says he was moving the altar in a small church in Lincolnshire last Sunday when he found this shopping list.
What can we say:
Written on the back of an envelope which originally came from Mole Country Stores in Devon:
Mole Valley Farmers Ltd
The list was written in red pen – maybe a teacher?
The handwriting is neat and formal, probably that of an older person. The slight shakiness might reinforce this point of view. Maybe a retired teacher.
Marmite, Scotch Eggs, Coleslaw and Cooked Meat.
This are all tea time or picnic ingredients.
Thank you so much to Peter!
