Hello mommies! It’s been a couple of weeks and our kiddos are back to school. Because of that, Ykaie and I had a back-to-school grocery shopping at our favorite hypermarket: Shopwise!
There isn’t any Shopwise near our house but we frequent their branch at Commonwealth because that’s the branch that we pass by every Sunday on the way to my in-laws. We do our grocery shopping on the way home. But ever since I rediscovered their Harrison Plaza branch, I dropped by there often too.
You know why I love shopping at Shopwise? Because it’s so sulit! There’s a sale every day. There are lots of discounted items and Buy 1 Get 1’s as well. As a mom who’s in charge of budgeting, it really makes me happy that I get to buy my favorite items on a discount.
More Promotions and Discounted Items
I love shopping at Shopwise because of its great deals and discounts. Ongoing now is Shopwise’s US Festival with its All American Treats. You can splurge on US products at a discount!
On top of these treats, Shopwise’s Save Big promos are now back with even more choices and great discounts to offer.
More discounted items that I bought: conditioner, bleach, and dishwashing liquid. I also bought Canola Oil.
Farm To Fork
I love that Shopwise supports local farmers with their Farm To Fork and Lovin’ Banana program. They make sure to source out locally grown fresh produce that are naturally grown and pesticide-free.
Essential Everyday is an exclusive brand that Shopwise Hypermarket carries. It’s an imported brand that is also of top notch quality as their branded counterparts but not as expensive. They have everything you can think of from hot chocolate to bottled juices.
They also have salad dressings. I bought the creamy ranch because it can double as a hot wings dip..heehee
Honey Mustard, Worcestershire Sauce, and Yellow Mustard
Popcorn!! They have Movie Theater Butter and Light Butter. Since I am on a diet, Light Butter is my choice.
They also have seasonings and spices: Taco Seasoning, Gravy Mix, Spaghetti Seasoning, and more..
I have yet to try their Corned Beef Hash but I will on my next grocery trip…
Garbanzo Beans and Black Olives
Pumpkin Purée, Whole Kernel Sweet Corn, and Cream Style Sweet Corn
Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips for Choco Chip Cookies!
Check out our grocery cart!
For families like us who enjoy dining out after groceries, it’s so nice to know that we don’t have to go very far to look for a good place to eat. There’s the Deli Cafe wit a big dining area and lots of choices.
Craving for Filipino food? There’s Roasted Pork Belly, Pinakbet, Sweet and Sour Meatballs, Pork Binagoongan and a lot more!
There’s Embotido, Ngohyiong, Okoy, Lumpiang Shanghai, and Lumpiang Togue.
Roasted Chicken with rice
Would you believe there’s PanPan too at a super affordable ₱22 per serving? It’s your choice of pancit canton variant + 2 big freshly baked pan de sal. And because I don’t let Ykaie eat instant pancit canton often, this is her choice of merienda when we went grocery shopping.
Get homemade delicious pizza (and hotdog) at Pizza Yolo.
Gourmet To Go Sandwiches in Tuna, Chicken, and Farmers Ham. The Tuna Sandwich is so good! Healthy pa because it’s made with wheat bread and has lots of veggies.
Back To School Baon Ideas
Now, here are my baon ideas. Like you, I am also a busy mom and there are times when I also can’t think of what to cook for Ykaie. I told you we love the BBQ Drumstick, right?
I just put it in a tray and brush it with a little oil and then roast/bake it until cooked and skin is brown. Then I pack it in her lunch box together with brown rice, fruit (an apple), and water or juice drink.
For the pork burgers, I made a Hawaiian Pork Burger for her and she loved it! Pack it in her lunchbox together with fruit (grapes), and water or juice drink.
Those pork burgers are a lot and I bet you I can make lot of dishes with it!
Oh I really love shopping at Shopwise Hypermarket! They do give “The Good Life You Can Afford”

I didn’t know about shopwise. I am not even sure there is one where I live. I love that hello kitty lunch box though
Heather Johnson says
I have never heard of Shopwise before. Essential Everyday sounds like a great generic brand. I am all about buying generics to save money whenever possible!
Jenni Petrey says
We don’t have a Shopwise here in Australia but it sounds like a great store. I must admit that I do look for generic brands when I do our weekly shopping trip.
Jake smith says
Never been to Shopwise either, but they seem great display of products. All I know is that Philippines has the best tasting and fresh from farm bananas.
Tried to compute some of the prices posted in my currency and I must say they are such a good buys! We don’t have Shopwise here but we have some stores that looks like Shopwise which we can buy for a good price too.
Emely Roman says
What great buys. I am not really good at sales. I just kinda go and shop. Something I need to work on for sure.
That is a good looking lunch you have put together. As a side thing to note, we keep a bag of chocolate chips in our refrigerator and eat a few when we get a sweet tooth. Works like a charm. 🙂
David Elliott says
Looks like they have a lot of cool products there. I have never heard of a Shopwise store locally but it does look really cool.
I am from Italy and I love to look at other countries ‘ products, I’m so curious! That hello kitty box stole my attention, it ‘s so cute!!!
Angela Milnes says
These are all looks awesome products and I love the good deal I wish this is available too in our country
We don’t have this supermarket in the UK, but I love the idea that there is some sort of sale everyday. Sounds like my kind of place.
Elizabeth O says
You make such attractive dishes that they pop right off the page. I love the lunch boxes with just enough food in them.
uh oh, those dreaded three words for kids, ‘Back to School’…lol. I love a bargain when I shop. The rice and chicken is such a great idea for lunch. no need for the same boring sandwiches everyday.
