A shopping list lets you purchase every important thing in a single visit to the supermarket and not wasting your precious time.

Fourty four-year-old grandmother, Anita Devi made this comment while shopping at Shop N Save Supermarket in Labasa this week.

Ms Devi of Vunivau, Labasa said chances of forgetting some important stuff and essentials were higher when you strike the market for bulk purchases without having a shopping list on hand.

“A traditional shopping list provides the variety of benefits to a user and also makes you an organized shopper who is aware of what to buy or what not,” Ms Devi said.

“It also provides a disciplined loom to the person who is in the market to purchase household stuff or some other stuff,” she said.

According to Ms Devi her drawing up a shopping list is not only for shopping as she also does it for everything for the market and shopping for her family needs and wants.

“The importance of shopping list cannot be underestimated by any single person because it helps to pack your shopping bag with all required grocery items or other things that you wish to buy during the market visit.

“It is an awful situation when you come back home without having important things in your bag and it also hurts you and other people in your house like a cook who was waiting for you to start the cooking properly with required stuff,” the mother of two children said.

“A shopping list assists you a lot in meal planning.

“I have been shopping on my own for 15 years and I never do shopping without a list.

“My advice to shoppers is to always have a shopping list on hand be it at any grocery stores.”

Being accompanied by her three year old granddaughter, Ms Devi said she sells fried bean in packets to support her family.

The eldest of five siblings does weekly shopping and spends about $100.
