Shoppers slam ‘selfish’ woman after she takes 60 packs of reduced bacon

Her pork haul split opinion

A woman has been accused of not ‘thinking of others’ after she bought dozens of packets of reduced bacon for herself.

The shopper, Jean, clearly couldn’t believe her luck when she noticed the slashed prices on the pork product as she was browsing her local B&M store.

So Jean decided to buy some 60 packs of the stuff, for herself, her friends and family.

She then shared her haul on the Facebook page, Yellow sticker shopping tips tricks and hauls.

Jean took a photo of all her bacon spread across her bed, with the caption: “My yellow bargains today! Lots of my friends and family will benefit as well which is good.”

The stash of pork included packets of eight rashers which were just 30p, down from £2, and five rasher packets which were reduced from £1.40 down to only 20p.

Within just hours, her post had racked up hundreds of comments and likes, but not all of them were positive.

Some hit out at the bargain hunter for not ‘thinking of others’ and leaving some of the reduced bacon for other people.

One person commented: “Think of others. I still think there should be a limit on how much people can buy.” 

Defending herself, Jean responded: “That was nothing, they had loads left, I left some for others.” 

Someone else wrote: “How dare you take all 60 packs.”

A third commented: “I’m all for bargains but even though we are a 11 house family I still leave something for others.” 

But some congratulated Jean on her haul, and just wished they’d been able to do the same.

“I’m jealous I wasn’t there to get some too,” one person penned, with another saying: “Well done! Hit the jackpot there!”
