A donation to the shopping list archive from Oxfordshire in the UK. This list is likely from an older person.
This person owns a cat, has use for matches (open fire, smoker, gas hob?) and sometimes suffers from indigestion. Coffee was an after thought on the list and written in a different pen.
Soda crystals are used for cleaning.

Lovely dotty ‘
Donut Forget‘ note paper for making lists. It is good to see some purpose made paper used. And with a foody theme.
This person needs
Polident denture cleaner for ‘our night’. Fancy. Something to look forward to.

Walmart Neighborhood Market, La Mesa, California, USA
What a fantastic list. Three items,
Go-Cat (cat food), Imodium Instant (to stop diarrhoea), CAT Litter (cat litter).

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.
1 Milk is added twice. Is this 2 Milks or did the person forgot that by the time they reached item 9 that item 2 was milk?
Other questions include, what is Cat – met?
Also, what is A/M?
This is not a main shop but rather a mid sized top up visit to the supermarket. There was Scampi, chips and peas on the menu that night for sure.

Cat food, cat litter, fruit juice, milk, tinned fruit and evap, posh coffee, bleach, disinfectant.
