The Grocery List Collection

Have you ever found a stranger’s grocery list at the store? We have. Almost 4,000 of them. This site has been round for more than 20 years and has been featured in more news stories than I can count. Just click the image below to start looking through the collection. And feel free to send in your lists!


BONUS MATERIAL…

THE BOOK: Milk Eggs Vodka

This is the book I wrote, based on this site: Milk Eggs Vodka: Grocery Lists Lost & Found. It came out in hardcover in 2007 and was republished in paperback in 2011. You can buy it on Amazon and in most sophisticated novelty and gift shops, as well as the occasional thrift store or eBay seller.

THE ULTIMATEST: Free lists

The Ultimatest Grocery lists

These are the best pre-formatted grocery lists ever created. I made them just for you—and they’re free. Print ‘em out, hang ‘em on the refrigerator door and mark ‘em up before you go to the grocery store (then leave them in the cart!).

THE MUSIC: Shopping songs

A found list + $5 + starving songwriters = Musical genius! I used fiverr.com to release an entire album of songs about grocery lists. And believe it or not… it worked out rather well. See the video below for an example. The whole things is free to download.
