ONE MORRISONS worker has the inside scoop on how to get the cheapest groceries in-store.
Al Baker told The Express all the secrets behind the scenes at the budget supermarket, and how to get the best bargains.
The 48-year-old dad’s biggest tip includes timing your shop to get the best yellow sticker deals.
There are certain times that you’ll be able to cash-in on the best of the reduced products – so if you’re in the know you’ll be able to slash your supermarket spends.
Some products will be cornered in one part of the store because they’re close to their sell-by date – but still safe enough to eat.
They’ll be marked with yellow stickers that show a new, much cheaper price as they’re just about to go off.
Al revealed to The Express that you could get as much as 80% off.
Bargain hunters have revealed in the past, that the evening is always the best time to stock up on them though.
Whatever you buy, you can always freeze too, that way they’ll last beyond the sell by date and you’ll make a saving.
But Al told The Express he’d seen more and more people seek out the yellow sticker bargains in-store since the start of the pandemic.
He said: “You literally get fights now between people trying to grab a bargain – I’m not joking.”
More recently Brits have struggled with a cost of living crisis that’s made them tighten their wallets, as bills, taxes and more are due to go up.
Inflation is partly to blame too, as supermarket staples – including milk, cheese, eggs and meat – are already going up in cost.
According to BBC figures, the price of doing the supermarket shop soared by 8% in the space of just a year.
And Tesco bosses even warned that food prices could soar another 5% in just months.
But Al revealed he too had been in a desperate financial situation in the past, and relied on the yellow sticker bargains to help him through – his hopes now are that the shopping hack will help others as the cost of living bites.
He said: “I was that yellow sticker finder at my local Co-op every single night, there to make sure that I grabbed something.”
He’s not the only one, a like-minded shopper revealed how she spent just £163 last year on her food shopping thanks to yellow sticker reductions on food that should have cost a whopping £1,223.
Plus, another mum shared how she manages to spend just £12.50 a week on the entire family’s food shop because of the yellow sticker bargains and more.
