Cereal Offender

A family of four with a toddler and a cat demand a lot of shopping.

This list looks to be shopping for a week with main meals consisting of sausages, fish cakes, mince and chicken served with sweet corn and chips and potato waffles.

Desserts include muffins, crumpets, cakes, yoghurts, custard and cereal bars.

Snacks encompass a number of types of crisps together with chocolates, Jaffa cakes, raisins and Baby Bels.

Breakfast will be well catered for with a number of types of cereal. These are Krave (HN), cinnamon, HN Clusters and something abbreviated to BG. I am not sure what BG is but I am guessing the HN stands for Honey Nut. This is quite an array of sweet choices.

Location and date found not recorded.

Red List

Lovely red pen on a plain piece of paper makes this list stand out from the crowd.

Not a major shop but rather a few required items. It looks like lasagne and salad was on the menu. Some fruit is listed and also shower gel.

Garlic B

A small list on a post-it note. Written in pencil.

Ten items. I can’t decipher what looks to be Wash T cels and Teele.

Otherwise there is onion, tomatoes, garlic bread, foil, disinfectant, rolls, crisps and bread.

P&G

This appears to be shopping for two people in two hands with two pens.

They are working age dog and cat owners with no children.

On P’s side of the list we have chicken, weetabix, French fries, custard creams, cokes and tissues. On G’s side we have duck in plum, chick/mushrooms, cold puds (eclair), trifle, lattes, cookies and chocs.

Some items have been crossed off, some have been circled. Some items in capitals and some in lower case. Notice the change of pen between hand wash and pads/pants.

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?

Pacific North West, USA

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
