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!
Found Sainsbury’s, Calcot, Reading

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”.

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].
