After this Queensland mum shared her tips for getting all her kids’ term one food supplies for a fraction of the price. She never expected this response…
Sharing her back-to-school shop on the Markdown Addicts Australia Facebook group, the mum revealed how a trip to her local Golden Circle Outlet saved her hundreds.
She writes: ‘Always look forward to my Golden Circle Outlet trip. School snacks sorted for term 1. Today was the closest I’ve gotten to $150. I always spend less than that. All this plus more that’s already down 4 tiny tummies came to $149.50.’
While many of the Markdown Addicts Australia members were impressed with Sala’s shop, others were a little critical.
Despite Sala asking commenters to ‘save your nutritious stories for somebody else ’, it seemed some couldn’t help themselves.
‘$150 of sugar!!! Think of how much fruit and vegetables you could have bought ’ wrote one critic.
Added another: ‘All I see is a lot of sugar and unhealthy, overweight children’
However their comments were drowned out by Sala’s many supporters.
‘The post mentions to leave your nutritious stories for someone else. Any food is better than no food especially if you have fussy children. Not very nice to be saying that at all about children being overweight. What message are you sending there? It’s not all about body image.’
Added another: ‘I think people need to remember this is not EVERYTHING the kids are going to be eating!!
‘If you actually read the caption Sala put up it clearly says just snacks!! For those of you commenting saying you wouldn’t feed it to your dog or the kids are going to be overweight!! Get over your selves, and don’t act like you’ve never given your kids any of these things!!!
