Money-saving mum reveals clever supermarket trick that will make your veg MUCH cheaper

A MONEY-saving mum has shared her tip for making sure you pay less for fruit and veg in the supermarket.

Holly Smith, who regularly posts her tips and bargain finds on her blog Coupon Queen, shared her nifty trick on TikTok.

Speaking in the video, she says: “This is a money-saving tip for you but also a way for you to reduce plastic.”

Filming a plastic wrapped cucumber in Tesco she continues: “These cucumbers are 57p each but if you buy them loose look how much cheaper they would be.”

Holly then takes the pre-packaged cucumber to the weighing scales and selects the loose cucumber button before printing off the price label.

The loose cucumber would be 25p as opposed to 57p, meaning that you are paying double the price for packaging alone and it is always better to buy veg without the packaging.

“Also works on other bagged fruit and veg”, Holly adds.

The video has since received over 100,000 likes and hundreds of comments from grateful shoppers.
