Shopping could be a strenuous job without proper planning and a good to eye to identify the best of all the varieties. If one lacks these while out shopping, the time, energy and money spent could go to waste. Most families because of this draw up a shopping list before engaging themselves with grocery shopping.

40-year-old Fane Tikoimacuata does her shopping only three times a week strictly at Shop N Save Labasa.

She said shopping at Shop N Save was convenient, cheap and she liked the services offered by the store.

The mother of one said being the one entrusted with her family’s shopping, she always prepared a shopping list before she left the house so she did not need to miss a thing.

She added that a shopping list was one the best ways to ensure that you worked within your budget.

“I usually shop on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays every week for my family and I always come with a shopping list,” she said.

“We need to carefully consider the item we purchase when we are out shopping especially if they are out for the first time and this also applies when buying vegetables, tinned items, and refrigerated goods amongst other things.”

She said when people did this they were putting their hard earned money to good use and not just spending it.

Mrs Tikoimacuata who is also a social worker and the secretary for the Northern Women Catholic’s League said fresh vegetables was a must on her list.

“As a mother, I always try to ensure a healthy meal for my 18 year old son and my husband,” she said.

“What we put on the table and feed our families should be a priority and I make certain of that while out shopping.”

She said that was why she chose to shop at Shop N Save because they usually had fresh vegetables.

Mrs Tikoimacuata is also a coconut supplier for market vendors and an occasional vendor herself.
