Hob Wok – Eggs 12 – Dog

A substantial shopping list. Torn paper, black biro.

This person has taken the trouble to enumerate their items:

  • Eggs 12
  • 2 Bags of spinach
  • 1 Carrotts
  • 2 Tomotenen?
  • 2 Pkt garfee?
  • Feet blackberries x 2?

The bottom right of the list makes for an interesting read, sliced chicken, sliced ham, frozen chicken, dog.

Torn with Columns

To aid reading whilst dashing through the supermarket, this happy shopper has organised their list into columns. All the staples are here for a large weekly shop.

This person is organised as they have their columns but they also take a pen with them to check items off as they go.

Porridge

Standard list of staples. Bread, milk, butter, cheese etc. interesting the items are grouped into categories. Biscuits appear twice.

Ruled paper has rounded corners on the left hand side and slight tear marks on the right, suggesting it has been torn from a note book.

Banahaha

Torn piece of note paper, turned, with blue biro. I am not sure I can read all of these words. My best guess is:

  • Chocolate almond
  • Salt
  • Peanut
  • Callllorole
  • Cashew x 1
  • Orange juice
  • Banahaha

A lot of nuts, or very few is the lack of plurals is to be considered seriously.

Interestingly, this list has two sides. What are we to make of this?

Bannans

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].

Sainsbury’s Didcot, Oxforshire

Split Peas


What are these numbers?  This list was found by Steve and he thinks they could be a running total of the prices.

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.

Toilet paper, tomato sauce, curry, milk, potatoes, fruit, bananas, apples, grapes, bread, ham, eggs, sausages, butter, ice creams, pizza, cream cheese, tena 40, kitchen soap, squash.

Found Aldi, Reading.

Pink Biscuits

Interesting one, a home cooker here with the mince, ham joint and other bits that need preparation. Any ideas what a pink biscuit is?

Pink biscuit, raisins, milk x 2, cheese, bananas, Aba bread?, honey, roast beef, veg, ham joint, mince, mozzarella, srut?, chip and dip, beer, throat sweets.

The consensus is that this is what the pink biscuits relates to:
