an introduction

So, I suppose it's time to say a little bit about this blog and why I've set it up:

I moved to Brighton in September and since then I have started picking up shopping lists whenever I spot them on the floor in supermarkets, or anywhere else they happen to pop up. 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.

This blog is a place for me to catalogue my collection and also somewhere for show and tell (just in case there is anyone else out there who is keen on lists - i'm sure there must be some of you!)

So, that's it for now. I'll post more information, and a LOT more lists, very soon.

I'm on it! I have one here for you, but I'll wait 'til I collect a substanial amont before I send them.

I think this could be a very, very fun project!
