My grocery list for this afternoon! Posting a pic of my loot after this :) (I hate the new photosets)
PS: My mom likes to write in the middle of the list for some reason. She’s the “blackberry jam, mustard, freezer bags.” Haha.

Found Grocery List

As a premier grocery store associate, I often find myself picking up after absent-minded adults. Until the advent of affordable, disposable sippy cups, I fear I’ll forever be cleaning up coffee spills in the bakery department. As for good old fashioned littering however, I don’t know what will need to be patented to curb that mainstay of annoyances.

Occasionally, among the discarded wax tissues and paper bags, I’ll encounter on the floor something a bit more unique: a grocery list. With handheld devices as popular as ever, the idea of a handwritten grocery list seems quaint — something that will inevitably go out with the baby boomers.

Before now, I’ve tossed the lists I’ve found without hesitation, but today I thought I’d start posting them. This first one isn’t particularly special — grocery lists shed little insight into the lives of the people who craft them — but there’s always something undeniably romantic about a lost to-do list. A subtle mystique. Who is this person?
