MANILA, Philippines — Not even Kapuso actress and "Primetime Queen" Marian Rivera is immune to online shopping deals or sales, admitting that she has had her fair share of "budol" buys.

Marian confessed that she really loves buying kitchenware because she really loves to cook, even going to the lengths of purchasing a huge number of rags.

"Baka nga quota na ako. 'Yung basahan na gusto ko, baka sold out na!" Marian said.

Apart from kitchen items, Marian shared that she also buys coloring materials, pens, and paint for her daughter Zia; the actress even said that it is Zia who buys them herself on Marian's phone.

Marian added that having coloring materials and the like are helpful for Zia and her little brother Sixto as both are returning to face-to-face classes, a prospect that the actress really likes.

"Gusto ko 'yung [face-to-face classes]. Gusto kong maging aligagang nanay. Nae-enjoy kong ihahatid mga anak ko to school," Marian said, sharing that she drops off Zia first then Sixto.

The "Jose & Maria's Bonggang Villa" actress also said that she is the one who wakes her kids up, bathes them, and prepares their food, and whenever her husband Dingdong Dantes isn't busy, he accompanies her in dropping off Zia and Sixto at school.

A tip that Marian shared for all those who love to shop like her, especially as the "Ber" months approach, is to list everything down on a piece of paper.

"Ayoko kasing mag-doble 'yung mayroon ko na sa bahay, and I make sure na when I list it down, 'yun talaga mga kailangan ko," Marian ended, using Christmas decorations as an example. "Mas maganda talaga naglilista ka para nakakasigurado ka walang sayang sa bibilhin... maging praktikal!"
