Peek in Over 1000 Shopping Baskets

This guy wants to eat your grocery lists.

Bill sayeth, “I run grocerylists.org, a collection of found grocery lists, and I’m currently working on a book based on the site. I’m looking for people to send me even more shopping lists, especially odd/funny ones or ones from specific states in the U.S. (and around the world).” I’m partial to any list containing “turkey necks” and “family-size box of Velveeta” — now that’s a meal!”

So far he’s collected over 1000. You can check out the site and see what your fellow consumers are shopping for, including turkey necks, family-sized boxes of shells with Velveeta cheese, and bathroom cleaner.

    No offense, but if this planned book sells well I’m going to put together a book of pictures of items found in the lost and found of various places. Won’t that be exciting! Yawn.

    You’re late to that party, Lars.

    I got a Found book as a gift and it’s fascinating.

    …..We print out a list that has all the stuff we routinely buy, and hang it on the fridge with a pen-holding magnet. If you use something up, circle it on the list. Or if it’s not on the list, write it in the margin. Works pretty well. And if the kids don’t put things on the list, they don’t get them!

    …..This list has been around for two decades, and even survived a null-modem transfer from my old Commodore computer to Windows 95. And it’s still in unformatted Courier, and looks kind of like an old dot-matrix print-out.

    Yeah, I was kind of joking that Found Magazine and the found book got there first and do it better. Hence my crappy idea for a book, akin to this crappy idea of shopping lists.
