Whether your a loyal customer at Aldi, Tesco, Asda, Morrisons, Sainsbury's or M&S, everyone loves a bargain or special offer when its comes to their weekly grocery shop.

Most people have a routine when it comes to visiting the supermarket each week and it usually coincides with the end of work, dropping the kids off at school or other social commitments.

However by simply adjusting the time you visit your favourite store by even just an hour or two you could save a lot of cash off your weekly shop.

UK retailers have set times when they start reducing food items with yellow stickers showing customers that a bargain is in the offing.

But when is the best time to take advantage of price reductions at your store?

Jordon Cox, a money saving expert from student site beansfortea, has revealed how to make sure you get a yellow sticker bargain every time you visit the supermarket.

He explained: "Finding yellow stickers in the supermarket is one really useful way to save the pennies and can save you a lot of money. I’ve managed to save money over the years just by being a bit more savvy with my food shop.

"Some people have saved hundreds even thousands of pounds a year just by picking up yellow stickered items at the end of the day but they can be hard to find so here are some of my top tips to save money with yellow stickers.”

Here are all of the times supermarkets release their yellow sticker items so you can make sure you get the best deals, reports the MEN.

Coop

50% during the day, and 75% after 8pm

Jordon continued to explain how it's important to check multiple aisles for yellow stickers - placing an emphasis on the chilled aisle.

He said: "This is probably the best place to find expiring food and where big savings can be made.

"Ready meals, fresh meat and fish are all up for grabs, as they are the most likely things to expire quickly! Check around all the chilled aisles in your supermarket – and you should find a section of reduced items like this."

According to Jordon, bakeries can also be bargain goldmines.

He said: "Do make sure you head over to the bakery section. Fresh bread, cookies, cake are all on offer if they’re soon to expire – so it’s a good way to get a sweet treat for a discount.

"Quite often you can get whole loaves of bread for dirt cheap that can be frozen.”
