Found on the ground outside the waiting room at Reading Station.
The list reads:
The list has been walked on as has the indication of sole prints upon it. The person is buying no meat or carbohydrates. Spelling not perfect.
A top up shop. Likely from a town centre shop rather than a supermarket.
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
Any questions and comments are welcome!
This is a man’s list alright!
Beer, battered chicken, 2 meat feast pizzas, baked beans, cheese, toilet roll and one tomato.

Here’s a good one. The front of the list is great, strange use of ‘z’ for plurals and a few unknowns but it is the back of the list that stands out – scroll down!
How nice. I hope Mum was happy with the replacement and the kind note.

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.

The one thing that is essential, and should be put on the list first, is a sieving spoon. Second priority is some executive food for the dog. Once everything has been purchased, Hello magazine and a lottery ticket should be bought.
There are a few items here which are unclear. Any help is appreciated.
Sieving spoon, dog paté, dog mince, cheese, yoghurts, veg all, T bags, lemonade, cereal bars, ?, gress?, tomatoes, potatoes, frozen mixed veg, frozen fish, bread, Hello, lottery.
