I came back as a bag of groceries

Grocery receipt with items by category

Here is a blurry photo that I took of my grocery bill from Sobey’s.  You will notice that the bill is itemized by category: grocery, meat, produce, deli, and bakery. 

It reminded me of the DesignSlam from the last CanUX conference in Banff.  The design problem was based on a grocery store chain.  Out of all the solutions that were presented, I’m not sure anyone thought of this one.  And, it’s so simple – just print out the bill after you’ve scanned all the items and reorder.  Nice.

Anyway, this grocery trip yielded a fantastic dinner of pasta with romesco sauce.
