Eighteen-year-old, Manish Reddy believes that impulsive buying is one of the reasons why people face financial problems.

Our team met him at MH Supermarket in Nadi where he was doing his monthly grocery shopping.

The grocery store worker is currently staying with his grandparents in Lavusa, Nadi.

“I don’t believe in buying junk or unnecessary buying, I am here to do our monthly grocery shopping,” Manish said.

He added that focusing on basic needs was one of the main priorities when carrying out his monthly shopping.

“I spend the whole day trying to look for the cheapest prices because I work within a budget and at the same time I am looking after my grandparents, I have to be very wise in spending money,” Manish said.

He added that junk food were never included in his shopping list.

“I believe in eating healthy food. At home we never buy junk for the children, whether its soft drinks or whatever sweet, we never buy them.

“Our shopping usually include things like sugar , rice , flour, salt and other food staff that will cater for us untill the next pay day,” Manish said.

He spends around $200 every month for their groceries.

Manish said that a shopping list would always come in handy because it keeps him on the right track on the groceries he needed.
