With grocery prices skyrocketing in Australia, a Woolworths shopper has shared a smart tip to buy lamb for just $8 a kilogram.

The Melbourne customer posted an image to the Facebook group Markdown Addicts Australia saying she originally wanted to buy $20 lamb chops but came across a better purchase.

Instead, she saw a 562g packet of lamb for just $4.50 and received six decent-sized servings, along with several smaller cuts of meat.

Captioned the photo, the woman wrote, “So I went to buy three small lamb chops today because it’s just for me, they had a six pack for $20.”

‘Than me’ [saw] the remnants – well hello, who wouldn’t take this option?’

Leftover lamb is perfect to use in a variety of savory recipes, including stews, soups, and slow-cooked dishes.

The social media post quickly caught the attention of others, with many calling the find a “bargain.”

Others said they had “never” seen or heard of cutting waste before, but will keep an eye out for it on future shopping trips.

A former Woolworths employee added that cuttings are always good value for money and taste great.

“I worked for the Woolworths factory and the leftovers are really good cuts of meat and half the time the line goes too fast to get the right chops first so they always end up in the scrap packs,” the former staffer wrote.

Another person added: ‘I’ve never seen garbage packages! What the!’

“Great for soup and casserole, bake them excellent, love them for that price too,” wrote a third.

“I’ve done this before and was amazed at the good chunks of meat you get in it,” added another.

The simple switch saves shoppers money at a time when inflation is rising across the country.
