i am vaguely intrigued by these as identified in teh times
"Discarded notes are rubbish to most people, but not for worldwide subscribers to Found, which reprints them. The magazine’s publisher, Davy Rothbart, gets bundles sent to his office in Michigan. Laura Kwerel, a radio producer in Washington, was “overwhelmed” after reading one issue. “I realise now,” she says, “that there is more humanity in a discarded grocery list than in a thousand-page novel.” Some people need to get out more.

Found in Tesco on Tuesday:

Mince
Mushs
Peppers
Ch Breast
R Krispies

Bonus item: a meal-planner down the right-hand side:
M - Omelette
T - Chips, ching (? hard to make out)
W - Spag Bol
Th - CCG

No shortage of protein. But what are they having with their chips and what on earth is CCG?

Found list in Asda today - here it is exactly as written

Mince

Onions
Carrots
Broccoli
Califlower
Roast Pot
Potatoes
Cheese
Salad
Gravy
Meat - Chicken Pork??
Oranges
Washing up liquid
Sprinkles for buns

________________________

The only bright spot is Sprinkles for buns, though interestingly Roast Pot and Potatoes are different things (obviously buys frozen roast potatoes). All are crossed out, except Gravy, Washing up liquid, Sprinkles for buns and Milk - was she going to get them cheaper elsewhere? can't believe Asda didn't have them, even the Sprinkles.
