A savvy shopper has shared her easy ways for saving money on your shopping bill - and getting food for 70p.

According to Emma Wild, 33, says there are certain tricks you can use to avoid spending too much at the supermarket, including keeping an eye on yellow sticker items and knowing the correct time to shop.

Emma, who has managed to save more than £40 on her weekly shop at Asda, Tesco and Aldi, has even on occasion been able to find meat or fish for 70p.

She told money-saving community LatestDeals.co.uk : "I'm forever bargain hunting as for the last couple of years my partner hasn't had much luck job-wise so money has been very tight.

"I generally rotate between Asda, Tesco, Aldi, Food Warehouse and occasionally Lidl and Sainsbury's.

"I shop at Tesco a couple of times a month as I get my pet food from there - and the Clubcard discounts are great, especially around Christmas.

"For my big shop each week, I go to Aldi as I find it tends to work out cheaper. I like their own brand products - they're just as good as the bigger ones in my opinion.

"Food Warehouse is another must for me as I can bulk buy frozen products that will last several weeks. I think the fizzy drinks are excellent value for money too.

"I've also had some luck with Magic Bags from the Too Good To Go app. I usually end up sharing them with friends and neighbours - there is typically too much for me and I don't want anything to go to waste."

Emma says her secret to finding deals is timing and added: "I tend to go shopping in Tesco, Aldi and Food Warehouse between 7pm and 8pm, as the shops are usually quieter.

"The food is typically very cheap at this time - I've found that the markdowns between 5pm and 7pm aren't worth it."

During one Asda shop, Emma managed to pay £7.26 instead of £24.83, saving £17.57.

She said: "The salmon fillets were marked down from £3.36 to £1.75, and I paid just 45p for basa fish that was previously £1.79.

"The beef mince was originally £2.80 but I got it for 70p. I also managed to get 2 sea bass fillets reduced to 70p from £2.22.

"Two lots of sushi were 50p reduced from £2.66, and a 12 piece wrap platter was £12 but I only paid £3.16."

The next stop was Tesco, where Emma paid £9.72 instead of £38.84, saving £29.12.

Emma added: "I paid just £5.93 for Wiltshire cured gammon that was originally £23.68 - I was very happy with that.

"I also got buttered chicken breast for £1.25 instead of £5, and a beef joint that was £10.16 had been marked down to £2.54.”

Emma went on to get a £3.42 pack of pork chops from Aldi for 85p, plus Lidl Scottish salmon fillets marked down from £3.49 to £1.75.

So how did Emma cook all of her bargains? She said: "I split the fresh meat into portions and froze it. My partner's mum helped me with the freezing, as I only have a tiny one until I can afford to upgrade.

"I shared some of the meat with her as we have been helping her vulnerable neighbour since the start of lockdown - she had to isolate and struggled to get shopping slots online."

Emma shared some tips for making other meals on a budget, which include freezing meals for a later date and shopping for wonky vegetables.

She added: "Don't shop hungry as you will buy more than you meant to, and always take a shopping list.

"I've lost count of the number of times I've come home with several bags of shopping and forgot half of what I intended to buy."
