A family of four with a toddler and a cat demand a lot of shopping.
This list looks to be shopping for a week with main meals consisting of sausages, fish cakes, mince and chicken served with sweet corn and chips and potato waffles.
Desserts include muffins, crumpets, cakes, yoghurts, custard and cereal bars.
Snacks encompass a number of types of crisps together with chocolates, Jaffa cakes, raisins and Baby Bels.
Breakfast will be well catered for with a number of types of cereal. These are Krave (HN), cinnamon, HN Clusters and something abbreviated to BG. I am not sure what BG is but I am guessing the HN stands for Honey Nut. This is quite an array of sweet choices.
Location and date found not recorded.
A crossed off list shows somebody who takes a pen to the super market. The paper looks to be ripped from another list.
This shopper was looking for two sizes of milk, a Twix, 4 + baguette, fruit, paper cups, W U bowl, c-cumber, BBQ bread and ‘more meat’.
This looks like a BBQ shopping list? It is the right time of year. And what is the little picture in the corner? Some kind of tent?
Sainsbury’s, Reading, 29th July 2021
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.
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.
This is a man’s list alright!
Beer, battered chicken, 2 meat feast pizzas, baked beans, cheese, toilet roll and one tomato.

Normal list, tea, milk, washing up liquid, salad, fruit, sauce…. but wait a second, what are coatings?
I like the flair on the dot on the i in liquid. And I like the apostrophe in the abbreviation of washing to ‘w’.
Interesting person. Good work.
Aldi Reading – 8th June 2017
1 Milk is added twice. Is this 2 Milks or did the person forgot that by the time they reached item 9 that item 2 was milk?
Other questions include, what is Cat – met?
Also, what is A/M?
This is not a main shop but rather a mid sized top up visit to the supermarket. There was Scampi, chips and peas on the menu that night for sure.
Kindly dontated by Andy. This shopping list was found in a Sainsbury’s in Oxfordshire. This is a bit traditional with lard, sprouts and tinned fruit but the item to note is the Bannans [sic].
