Secret section in Woolworths where shoppers are scoring hundreds of dollars off grocery bills

Shoppers are scoring hundreds of dollars off their grocery bills by picking up bargains in a ‘secret’ section of Woolworths supermarkets.

An Australian woman called Maddi drew attention to the ‘reduced section’ of Woolworths, which she said is often found at the ‘end of the last aisle’.

She said she ‘always picks up a few bargains there’ and shared a photo of what she found on this particular haul.

Maddi’s bargains included bags of mini Kit Kats for 35 cents each, Bega smooth peanut butter for $1.89, strawberry milk for $2.79 and War Heads for 80 cents.

Maddi also invested in an Organic Care body wash for $2.80 and some Woolworths white cooking chocolate for just 93 cents, when it usually costs $2.70.

‘I’m not sure if this is everywhere but over the past few months at the Woolies near me, but they have started a reduced section for shelf items that are slightly damaged or nearing their use by date,’ Maddi wrote.

‘It’s usually at the end face of the last aisle and I love it!’

It wasn’t long before Maddi’s post was met with dozens of comments from other shoppers, who said they always seek out the area too.

‘It’s literally my favourite area too, great score!’ one woman wrote.

‘I adore it. It’s so good that they sell all that stuff now rather than chuck it like they used to,’ another commenter added.

A spokesperson from Woolworths told FEMAIL that the section does exist, but its location varies from store to store:

‘We use markdowns from time to time to minimise food and product waste,’ the spokesperson said. 

‘The availability of markdowns will vary from day to day, and store to store, based on stock levels and demand.’

This isn’t the first time a Woolies shopper has spotted how to get your hands on a bargain. 

In August, an eagle-eyed shopper discovered a little-known code on Woolworths labels that claims shows the time the products are discounted. 

The woman, from New South Wales, scored a huge discount after purchasing a $16.37 beef roast and a $1.86 bottle of full cream milk after the prices were slashed when they were marked for a ‘quick sale’.

Upon closer inspection, she noticed a time stamp on the top corner of the produce in which she believed the items were reduced.

The beef showed ’11:25′ while the milk was marked with ’10:34′ on the labels.

The observant woman said the codes will help guide her as to what time of the day the supermarket marks down perishables – so she knows when to shop.
