A savvy Morrisons shopper used a free smartphone app to buy £15 worth of food for just £3.09 – and she’s revealed how you can too.
Gemma Queenborough downloaded the Too Good to Go app to bag discounts when she goes to the supermarket, saving just under £12 on her most recent trip.
The 23-year-old, from Birmingham, got all of the food in the photo above for about the same price as a latte from a major coffee chain.
Her haul at a Morrisons in Sheldon included two punnets of cherry tomatoes, a punnet of cherries, a sliced mango pack and a vegetable soup kit, BirminghamLive reported.
She also picked up a bag of sprouts, a salad bag, a stir fry pack and spring onions.
The free Too Good to Go app fights food waste by allowing users to buy unsold food from supermarkets, restaurants, bakeries and pubs to prevent it from being tossed in the bin.
Many items tend to be posted near to the end of the working day as they near their best before date.
Companies that sell items on the app include Greggs, YO! Sushi and Paul.
Aldi shopper shares “genius” video showing how to slow down checkout staff
The items that Gemma bought from Morrisons worked out to about 25p each.
All the food she bought had a best before date of the day she bought its so everything was good to eat or freeze that evening.
She said: “It’s such a shame to see good food going to waste and to find a bargain like this is fantastic as I get such a good deal and less food goes to landfill.
“I have tried the app on a few occasions with beer from pubs for my dad, and cheap meals at the end of the night in restaurants, it’s always worth a look to bag yourself a real bargain and save yourself a few pounds.”
Gemma added: “It’s always a gamble as you sometimes end up with a few weird items, runner beans and sprouts are not my thing, but usually somebody in the family eats them and the rest of the shopping is what I like.”
