‘We like to have a meal together every time I’m there and buying hospital food/take away is expensive,’ she added.  

The pregnant mum-of-three told Yahoo New Australia she regularly finds impressive markdowns at the supermarket but none as cheap as her recent haul. 

‘I’m usually lucky to get half price or less off,’ she said. 

‘There’s no particular timeframe I go, I have three kids on the spectrum and my partner in hospital after leg amputation. I’m also pregnant, so just do shopping when I can.’ 

The clever shopper shared her tips for nabbing a bargain at the supermarket saying to always check the reduced items section and keep track of your spending. 

She also recommended having a little extra in your shopping budget so you can buy items in bulk if they’re heavily reduced.

She said she walked into Coles at the ‘perfect time’ in a post to Facebook that drew in hundreds of comments from fellow bargain hunters. 

‘Damn wish I was at your Coles. What an awesome bargain. Enjoy. You could make a nice cheese platter with this. Yum,’ one person wrote. 

‘I would definitely have a cheesy grin after that,’ another joked. 

A third asked about what the use-by dates were on the items to which the buyer responded: ‘I think tomorrow, but that’s ok. It goes well past use by and can also be frozen.’
