Kindly dontated by Andy. This shopping list was found in a Sainsbury’s in Oxfordshire. This is a bit traditional with lard, sprouts and tinned fruit but the item to note is the Bannans [sic].

What else do we know? This list was taken from a spiral bound notepad which has been cut vertically. The list was written by more that one person, compare BLACK BAGS with Bananas, not only capitalisation but also a difference in the Bs.
This person is a crosser offer. They have bought no meat, a vegetarian? Actually there is some ham near the end.
The addition of the newspaper on the list suggest a weekly newspaper rather than a daily. This fits as Steve found the list on a Sunday
Milk, choc spread, sweet pots, pots, frozen fruit, fruit, toms, orange juice, newspaper, black bags, bananas, rice, shampoo, sensodyne, shower gel, cheese, ham, split peas, shampoo.
Found by Steve in Sainsbury’s in Tadley.

This shopping list owner likes detail, 2 bananas precisely, “Kellogg’s”cereal rather than just cereal, “Ryvita Rye Crispbreads” when Ryvita would have sufficed. In fact I think this list was written for somebody else to do the shopping, the numbers and brands are instructions.
Does whisky and American mean whisky and whiskey?
Tomatoes, Mediterranean vegetables x 1, strawberries, apples, bananas x 2, salmon x 1, sweet potatoes, milk, small red milk, bleach, rinse aid, kitchen rolls, bread, lime cordial, still water, Kellogg’s fruit and fibre (purple pack), Ryvita rye crispbreads, whisky + American.

Note how Rob gets four of his own yoghurts and Ruth is going to get some chocolates. 12 eggs is rather a lot and what is dog ham?
