She further disclosed that her mother claimed that the list was cheaper than some other tribes with a longer list of items to be bought.

In her words:

"This is just the list from the women section oo. The men haven’t brought their own lists. The males have their own different list. My mum is even saying ours is cheaper that other tribes have longer list."
