Mother Teresa list

Julie , who sent me this list, said “This list was found on the floor of a Target Store in Atlanta, GA right before a check-out register. What I liked about this lost and found list was the Mother Teresa quote at the bottom of the note paper.

Perhaps the owner’s heart is constantly thinking of others…as we might see in some of the items listed 🙂

And, Julie provided some information about herself. 
My name is Julie Cook. I grew up in Atlanta, Georgia but now live in a small town about an hour west of Atlanta.
Since my son and his family lives in Atlanta, I spend a good bit of time running back and forth between home and them.
I am always finding myself constantly running to various stores when I’m over visiting — as I’m buying ‘this and that’ for the grand-kids.
This list has been waiting in the wings for a while. I wonder if this was a mom shopping for one of her children who was off to college, perhaps?

  1. The person who lost the letter has hopes in giving many gifts. The phrase about Mother Teresa is extremely suggestive for everybody to give something to others. The writer might be a Spanish speaker, because B + B +B means in Spanish Bueno, Bonito y Barato. In English, it means: Good, Nice and Cheap… LOL.
    I don’t know… Greetings for everyone!!.. Go buy a gift for somebody today. LOL

  3. Thanks Yvonne for including the list I found!!!— given when I found it— I thought of either a college dorm or apartment

  4. Oh dear, it would seem that this person lost their list before most of the shopping was done. How annoying for them. I hope they were able to remember everything they wanted.

  5. Unusual list. Not one you might find in an Aldi trolley.

    • It really is different, Gez. Keep your eyes open the next time you’re in Aldi, even be prepared to ambush someone at the checkout, and get their list. Thank you, and good luck.

  6. They’ve just moved into a new home and are setting up a guest room?

    I’m voting for a twin-bedded guest room. This would be a fun shopping expedition, and how thoughtful to provide a chair. Too bad we’ll never see the end result!

  8. She (how very sexist of me) is doing up the guest room prior to the imminent arrival of a guest. She is also dolling up the second bathroom a bit. Given the colour of the pen I’m not sure I would trust her to be my decorator!

  9. Lots of white space there for adding other things as they come to mind. I’m voting for the home refresh idea. Maybe “G” stands for “Guest”. Or “G” a person, got moved to another room in order to create the guest room. Perhaps “G” is a little person going into their first big bed.
    The possibilities are endless.

  10. Perhaps the writer of this list is giving his/her two-bedded guest room a facelift, and maybe because of expected visitors, maybe the first guests to visit in a while.

  13. Actually all these shopping lists tell a story. When you buy for other people your list has to be pretty specific.

  14. This one is interesting. Paper shades for the guest room–is this a new home and the blinds/curtains aren’t up yet? And if it’s a new place, maybe it’s bigger? what with all the bedding, and garbage cans for the bathrooms and the lamp. Not to mention the chair…I vote new larger home…

    • Trouble is, unless there’s a one in a billion chance that the person who wrote the list stumbles across this post, we’ll never know. Which makes it good, we can make up all sorts of stuff about the shopping that was done.

      I thought the paper shades referred to lamp shades.

      • No, there are these blinds that you stick at the top of windows when you don’t have coverings. They’re good in a pinch, but some people never take them down. It was the store made me think that…but I just did a search and all the ones she was in mention them.
