We have a rule. More than three items requires a full shopping list before I even enter the store. Mine gets worked on dat home uring the day and is emailed to me at the office prior to my departure. Anything not on the list when I leave the office waits for next time.

I'd never find my way out of the kitchen without my glasses. They never get left behind anywhere.

I think that the item not noticed is unobserved because the reader's attention is taken by the mental processing involved in keeping the other items in mind. One needs to finish with most items before going on to the next. I encounter that when my wife calls me as I'm shopping. She adds one item to my mental list. No problem. Then she recites three more, and I have to tell her to wait while I get my pen ready, and then to give me the entire list all over again. I'd think it might be my age creeping up on me, but I've yet to put my eyeglasses in the fridge.
