Aldi 8th June 2017
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.
Salad, fruit, veg, pots, onions, cereal, rice krispies, cheese, ham, t bags, cake, crisps, choc bars, bread, ???, mayo, ???, tuna tinned?, tinned beanz?, tinned toms, eggs, passatta, cheese sauce, bubble bath, golden syrup, juice, butter, t rolls, k rolls, pasta, kidney beanz, stock pots, plenty of ale?
Sainsbury’s, Calcot, Reading
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.

Another classic from Sol – Southampton Old Lady
She says she found this list on a passenger walkway at the Port of Southampton. I wonder if this person worked there and was going to do some grocery shopping on the way home but lost the list?
The list does seem to be heavily beverage focused.
What is wine number 1?
Coke, deodorant, tonight’s dinner, wine #1, beer, orange squash, blackcurrent, bread, ham (freezer?).
Three cucumbers! Nobody buys three cucumbers! Maybe this hard working mum is also catering for the local cricket club and making sandwiches for the home and away teams. That may explain why 3 loaves of bread and 9 bottles of squash are required. Actually the cricket season has finished here so there must be something else going on.
Lots of fruit and veg which is good to see but also lots of kiddie friendly meat products, chicken fingers, hot dog sausages, burgers and of course who could ignore the turkey jetti:
Lettuce, tomatoes, veg, mushrooms, apples, peppers, spring onions, cucumber x 3, bread x 3, squash x 9, noodles, chili sauce, paste, peas, gravy, hot dog sausages, milk, chick ham, butter, yoghurt, nappies, washing up liquid, crisps, water x 2, kids cartons, biscuits, crackers, deorant, shampoo, buble bath, burgers (kids), chick fingers, turkey jetti, belly pork, mince, roast meat, 4 meals.

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.
Sweet pot, peppers, coffee, cornflakes, liver, kidneys, chicken breasts, mince, morrison’s blades, soap, spray * bath, ariel colour, oust, sponges, grapes fruit, milk | cream, sour cream, coleslaw, taramasalata?, gruyere cheese, ham, choc lollies, scotch, gin, tonic.

The consensus is that this is what the pink biscuits relates to:
