This supermarket trick could cut your food bill in half.
A savvy shopper recently revealed how she saves a fortune on fruit and veg.
So do you apply this rule when you’re picking up your groceries?
A mum recently revealed why you should consider swerving pre-packaged fruit and vegetables.
She told the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK group: “Buy three onions in a pack from Tesco – 85p.
“Choose three onions and place on scale – 36p.
“It’s the same with other fruit and veg too.
“I always used to grab the packs of fruit and veg and didn’t realise how cheap they are if you use the scales.”
While this may seem like a pretty simple tip, many were appreciative of the advice.
In the last 24 hours, the post has racked up 2,800 likes and hundreds of comments.
Many said they found similar bargains by using this money saving hack.
One responder wrote: “I bought 20 bananas for £1.39.
“It would have cost me £6 all ready packaged.”
Another said: “I save a fortune every week buying loose fruit and veg.
“Bananas are particularly over-priced.”
While the loose fruit and veg rule does apply in many cases, it doesn’t always guarantee you the best deal.
Shoppers are advised to check packaging to find the cost per kilo.
This allows them to establish which products are cheaper in the different instances.
While bananas and onions tend to be more affordable when their loose, other items aren’t.
Carrots and potatoes are often less costly when bought in bulk – so always check your labels before making purchases.
