Some people accused her of “taking too much” and added that other people are struggling too.
“I also find some good quick sales, but I like to leave some for others like me,” said one woman.

“All I have is Bill, bills bills and my four babies. So putting things back when I buy it cheaper is not on my radar,” she said.
And the staff supported her.
“The amount of discounted stuff that ends up in the bins every night is insane. So it’s clear leaving for others doesn’t work,” one wrote.
Supporters said they also reached their stores on mark down time and saved hundreds

Mark-down time varies by store, but according to other bargain hunters, it’s usually just before the store manager quits.

“I used to always miss it, then I asked a cashier and she told me that the price reductions in my store are ready at 7:30 pm,” said another.
The mother filled her freezer with the meat, which would expire the following evening.
