Woman shares how she picked up £50 worth of food for just £6 during weekly shop

The weekly shop can put a big dent in your finances so it’s always nice to pick up a few bargains along the way.

And one woman has proved that knowing where to look can save you a fortune after she showed off the huge haul of food she picked up for just £6.

The shopper shared pictures to the ‘Feeding a family on £1 a day’ Facebook group, showing a shop including meat, spring rolls, sandwich slices, and soup she bagged at Morrisons.

She picked up bargains bearing yellow reduced stickers, with some of the items coming in at as little as 25p – and she said it left her with a bill of just £6.62 when she made it to the tills, The Sun reports.

Sharing it with other members of the group, she wrote: “This is one of the biggest ways I keep my shopping bill down!

“Over £50 worth of stuff for £6.62… would easily be able to add little bits to this and round up to £10 and feed two of us for a week.

“And yes there was loads left for others and really good bits that I didn’t like otherwise I could have saved more.”

People were left impressed by the haul, as one commented to say it’s “all about the timing” – and according to MoneySavingExpert, reductions at Morrisons tend to start late morning or lunchtime.

The supermarket itself said it’s up to individual store managers as to when the yellow stickers start to get rolled out, but shoppers were advised to aim for after lunch.

It varies at other supermarkets, with Tesco shoppers saying between 6.30pm and 7pm is the best time to visit, and Asda customers advising half an hour before closing, or between 8pm and 9pm for 24 hour stores.
