A5 Lined note paper with blue biro. Consistent use of the grocer’s apostrophe.
A grocer’s apostrophe is a spelling mistake caused by placing an apostrophe before the s of a plural word. In English, the plural form of a word is most commonly shown by adding an s to the end (e.g., “cats,” “bananas,” “pictures”). Don’t add your own apostrophe!
This shopping list has kindly be donated from contributor in Livingston, Scotland.
She says she found it whilst walking her dog – nowhere near a shop. The list has normal items with a good amount of fruit and veg. Burgers and rolls, lettuce, tinned tomatoes, yoghurt…
On the rear of the shopping lists is a meal planner for 5 days. Sure enough, there are the burgers again. The kidney beans mentioned on the front side no doubt find a home with the chilli and rice. I can’t read the 2nd or 3rd item.
Wagamama’s could be a night out or could be a branded item from the supermarket. For example Morrisons sell Wagamama’s meal kits and ingredients like this.
Maybe the contributor could help decipher items 2 and 3 above???
Nowhere near a supermarket, Livingston, Scotland. November 2022
Now, this is really interesting, not so much for the items but in the way they are presented. Here the list has be segmented into little boxes with what looks like similar items in each box. Does this represent a map of the supermarket aisles or is this how the food is stored at home? Fridge items in one box, household in another etc.
