Polident For ‘Our Night’

Lovely dotty ‘Donut Forget‘ note paper for making lists. It is good to see some purpose made paper used. And with a foody theme.

Cat owner

This person needs Polident denture cleaner for ‘our night’. Fancy. Something to look forward to.

Strange mix of capitalisation with CRackers.

Other items include crackers, large storage bags and eggs. A good quality shopping list here.

Ruth’s Birthday

A vintage list from 7 years ago. A deceptively large shopping list as there are multiple items on each line.

This shopper has planned their menu for the next week with, for example, gammon and squares(?) on Thursday. It looks like Saturday night may have been a night out!

Dog owner.

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.

Brighton Shopping List

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.

Feline Busy!

Cat owner. Purrpose made note paper with a feline theme. This person did not paws as they made the list else they would have been late for the shop, a catastrophe. I wish I could have written a list like this, maybe they could show meow.

Mixed capitalisation on this shopping list.

Waffles for break?

Berries & Chicken Pie

Written on a torn off rectangle from an insurance company letter, there is some small print on the reverse.

I am not sure what the horizontal line represents here. It is not likely to be different shops or days.

Up on a cliff top

I found this list by a bench high up on a cliff on the Dorset coast.

There was a scrap of folded paper laying on the ground which I opened up and low and behold it was a shopping list.

It is a rather short shopping list. Maybe breakfast essentials for some holiday makers in the area.

Blue biro, roughly torn and folded into four.
