i collect shopping lists



Since moving to Brighton I have started picking up shopping lists whenever I spot them on the floor at Sainsbury's, or anywhere else around town. I've now accumulated quite a collection and I am planning to create a mini-project about them (or using them) at some point.

They are really rather interesting objects and it's nice to notice the differences between a very neat & organised list and the ones that are a lot more messy and confusing. I also love the different scraps of paper that people choose to write their lists on.

So, I just thought I'd tell you all about my project in case any of you happen to find any lists while you're out and about. I've already had a couple of friends bring my back lists from other parts of the country and I am looking to make my collection a lot BIGGER.

So if you do find any and you fancy contributing then drop me an e-mail or leave a comment - i'd greatly appreciate it.

super!

maybe you should set yourself up at sainsbury check out and collect all their shopping lists...

Hmmm I haven;t one left, but we DO make them whenever we go out grocery shopping. Will try and remember to collect some to send you ...

By the way, is your MA over? Or have you still a few months/a year to go?

Like you, I always feel the urge to take those shopping-lists home. And sometimes I so. But then I'll throw them away again, because I can't think of a reason to keep them.... Having a collection of something is not reason enough for me. Maybe I'll finf a reason or purpose someday.
