Savvy shopper reveals best time to get yellow sticker deals in Waitrose after bagging 12 salmon fillets for just £2
IF we won the lottery tomorrow, then we'd happily do our weekly shop in Waitrose – but until that lucky day, you'll find us cruising the yellow sticker aisle for bargains.
That said, you have to be quick if you want to get in on the savings – and as one savvy mum has proved, the timing of your shop is everything.
Posting on the Facebook group Scrimping on a Budget, the mum revealed how she bagged 12 salmon fillets worth £35 for just £2.10 when they were reduced to 35p a packet.
She wrote: "The time to go!! Waitrose at 3:30 Sunday afternoon."
By checking the aisles half an hour before the shops close on a Sunday, the mum stumbled upon some hugely discounted items.
Along with her mini salmon stockpile, the woman also paid 75p for three packets of lamb mince that would have otherwise set her back £13.50.
And to finish it off, she snapped up a packet of fresh £1.10 lettuce for 15p.
She added: "Before anyone comments ‘why did you take so many and not leave for others’, well that is my business!"
The post racked up over 1,100 "likes" in the group and people were grateful for the top shopping tip.
One replied: "Good on you. I also would of bought it all to freeze!"
Another added: "Wow this is AMAZING, thanks for the heads up."
"You might as well take them- I would imagine they shut at 4," a third wrote. "If they don’t get offered to the staff they would only go in the bin!!"
For more food tips and tricks, this savvy mum made a ‘packed lunch station’ for her kids so she doesn’t have to sort their food & it speeds up busy mornings.
And this mum challenged her nine-year-old son to shop for himself for a week – and he bags all his food for just £7.54.
Plus this mum feeds her family-of-four for £1.50 each a day and shares her monthly meal plan so you can too.
