The shopper said it wasn’t just bathroom products up for grabs, but numerous frozen items also had their prices slashed.

At the end of her trip, the customer said she did the maths to see how much money she’d saved.

“So paid $70.60 with a few other shopping items and added it up, original prices would have been $406.50,” she revealed.

Numerous other bargain hunters who are also group members praised the woman for getting so many products for so little money.

One woman called it “amazing”, while others shared their own success stories.

“I was at Coomera Westfield... and got a bargain at one of the shops. They are doing surprise accessories for $10 and there is like $70-$100 worth of stuff in it,” another person wrote.

Woolworths employee reveals best time for markdowns

Previously a Woolworths employee shared when prices on particular items were reduced.

She explained different items get reduced at different times of the day, so depending on what items you need will determine when you should shop.

“I work at Woolworths and I do bread markdowns at 7pm every night,” she revealed.

“I also do produce, meat and dairy. But they also do markdowns in the morning as well, not sure what time because I work night shifts.
