A substantial shopping list. Torn paper, black biro.
This person has taken the trouble to enumerate their items:
2 Bags of spinach
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.
Morrisons, Reading, December 2022
Fantastic hand writing on this shopping list.
Ingredients for a chilli con carne perhaps, or at least something of that type. Mince beef, onions, kidney beans, tortilla wraps.
Kidney beans appear twice but are crossed off. Brown sugar is also crossed off. Not required?
Is the small bar of dark chocolate to be added to the cooking, or is it to be had after the meal.
Some writing on the right of the list might be in the same hand, if it is, it was written on an unsteady surface.
A welcome contribution from Brighton, UK.

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.

This list was very kindly donated by Matt from Dudley.
Firstly, pink pen and beautiful cursive script is not a common occurrence in the world of shopping lists. A colourful and welcome addition.
Secondly, the reader of the post on
tittles will notice the circle above the first letter i. Circles are replaced by dots further down.
On apostrophes, there is ‘Choc’s’ and ‘Dogs Food’.
Other items include some staples including crisps, gravy, biscuits, cheese and jam. What is slightly unexpected are the ‘bum wipes’ and two types of shampoo.
What a great list. Thank you Matt!

Nice writing. Very clear. Top up shopping list on torn quarter of A4 paper.
What are roosters?

Interesting to see a centre justified list. Items are bunched around a mostly invisible centrally vertical dividing line. Although in some cases, Ham | Chicken are visibly separated with a vertical bar.
A5, lined and spiral bound paper.
Dog and cat owner, smoker?
Doritos are listed as well as tortilla chips. Hmm.
On the back of the list is a date “Wed 22nd, 2:30pm”.

Very nice neat handwriting here, lots of items fitted on a folded A5 spiral bound piece of paper.
Likely a mother of children at school age, with pets. Mouse treats, “kid’s” crisps/snacks, cookie dough, lollies.
Meat captured in a separate area of the list in large parenthesis. Chicken, prawns, muscles, bacon, ribs, sausages.
Orzo pasta suggests a cook in the house.

Found with its counterpart ‘custard pots’ at Morrisons in Bridport, U.K., this list is in the same hand, on the back of a betting slip but intertwined with a Waitrose receipt for items listed.
Some items are duplicated from the first list but also included are two tins of baked beans, Kellogg’s Fruit and Fibre and some ‘ready baked’ potatoes.
Morrisons & Waitrose, Bridport, 29th May 2022
A decent gauge of note paper has been folded and used for this list. Simple staples of cornflakes, milk, green tea, grapes and cheese are listed.
Found at Waitrose, Abingdon, November 2019. Thank you Mrs. Andy.
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.
