One group member asked the woman how she bagged the bargains, writing: "When you say it worth asking for a bargain what do you do? Do you ask at the counter if they have yellow stickers in the back or something?"
She shared that she always asks the counter if anything is going out of date, and they tend to yellow-sticker the items for her.
The savvy woman wrote: "At the meat/fish counter I always say- I’m
looking for bargains to fill my freezer.
"The people are usually really helpful – as what they don’t sell, they bin.
"I ask after 3 on a Sunday & 5 on a weekday," she added.
People were stunned by her bargain buys and congratulated her on her finds.
One person wrote: "That is one posh bargain."
Another commented: "Hit the jackpot there, well done."
"Nice one," penned a third.
