Enhancing user perception in smart environments is an active area of research. Its foundation is the use of sensor technology in order to capture automatically events that might otherwise escape the user's knowledge. Organized in a personal diary, such events may be exploited for various kinds of user support. However, while the approach requires that the user is not forced to interact with incoming information, the information captured should nevertheless match her expectations. In this article, we describe various strategies that let the user control the creation and structuring of events generated in a virtual shopping environment. Our report comprises a summary of information sources offered to the user in this setting as well as methods employed to construct a diary of shopping actions in a semi-automated way.
