The customer found six packets of reduced donuts

A bargain hunter has explained how she bagged 30 donuts for just 42p at Morrisons while chasing yellow stickers.

Sweet treats had been reduced from 69p per pack to just 7p – a 90 per cent saving – with the shopper picking up six packs.

The impressive saving means she spent 42p in total.

“7p for a packet of donuts and popped in the freezer, happy days,” she said on the Yellow Sticker Society’s Facebook page.

The customer explained how she spotted the donuts at her local Morrisons store around 6.30pm.

Of course, each store will start their yellow stickers at different times, so there’s no guarantee that your local store will also start reducing at that time.

For example, some supermarkets will start reducing items in the morning, while others will wait until closing time.

The best thing to do is to familiarize yourself with your particular store so you can plan your visit.

You can even ask the staff for the best time for discounts.

Other shoppers were impressed with the donut carrier and said they never realized they could freeze them.

Of course, always make sure your food is fully thawed before eating it – and know that not everything can be frozen.

One money saver joked, “Oh no you can freeze these? Please help me. So my diet didn’t need to know. Please tell me this is not true”.

A second person said: “I always say if you can buy frozen food you can freeze it at home. I freeze cream cheese butter etc.”

A third commented: “Morrisons donuts are the best ever, so soft and fluffy. Lovely warmed up with ice cream.”

And another said: “Well done! Now I really want donuts.”

Supermarket shoppers will be looking to save cash after grocery store analysts warned prices could rise 15% this summer and leave shoppers skipping meals.

The Institute of Grocery Distribution (IGD) said households should pay more for basic necessities, including dairy products, bread and meat, as inflation is expected to reach 11%.

Shopping bills for a typical family of four could rise by up to £40 a month, he warned.

James Walton, chief economist at IGD, said: “Based on our research, cost of living pressures are unlikely to ease soon.

“It will no doubt leave many households, and the businesses that serve them, looking to the future with considerable anxiety.

“We expect buyers’ mood to remain gloomy for the foreseeable future as they are impacted by rising inflation and falling real wages.”
