Karolina Foulger, 33, a mum of one and genetic technologist, showed off the impressive haul which includes five packs of mince at 95p, loads of chicken breast for 96p and even pricey organic salmon.
Karolina, from Coventry, told money-saving community LatestDeals.co.uk: “I went to the shop only to get some food for the evening as we were out for the whole day and didn’t fancy cooking.
“As I realised it was the usual yellow sticker time I popped to the bit where people queue and noticed there were only five or six people ahead of me.
“I joined the queue and within five minutes the staff brought the things out. Everyone was allowed five items each and then needed to go to the back of the line which stopped any fighting (and Covid spreading as well).

“Karolina’s haul is amazing – look at all that mince, salmon and fruit at such enormous discounts.
“My top tips for finding yellow sticker bargains is to chat to your supermarket workers and find out when they discount items.
“That way, you can put it in your diary and make sure to be at the front of the queue!
“It’s worth stocking up and batch cooking with your yellow sticker items, then popping containers in the freezer so you always have a home-cooked meal waiting when you need one.”
