It disgusts me when people stop others from getting a look in, ive nothing against people from getting a bargain but its the way some people go about it. After being on the other end of the supermarkets staff I understand they are under pressure to get the reductions done. If it was me id have a limit per customer. People should have to act the way they do.

On an evening I've seen people in Asda take everything they find that's reduced on that day put it in their trolley and then hang about for hours waiting for the staff whoopsy person to come with the stickers that get put on last minute reductions- so that piece of meatfor example reduced and in their trolley at 6pm for a fiver then gets reduced at 8pm as they hold it out to the assisant to something really cheap like 50p and because they already have it in their trolley no one else gets a look in.
I've also seen people selling loads of whoopsies off at the pub later!

The supermarkets dont really care as long as it gets sold (so the supermarkets waste figures are not too high). My attitude is that its there to be sold. First come, first served. Personally i would not clear the entire shelf, but i would get the items i intended eating. Not just because they are there.
One thing that annoys me is when business (local shops) come and snap up all the bargains to resell. I usually see them in my store on a Friday night 9-11pm closing presumably after they shut their shop.
Every week its the same people with just the very good offers in their trolley and boxes of it.

I can't believe people would habg around 2 hours for a reduction! They need to get a life! I get that many are struggling but come on.... and as for selling it later at the pub - seems a bit off to me. I only take what I know we'd use or could freeze.

The later the time or the more product then the more likely I am to take more - otherwise I take around 2 packets maybe 4 if I can freeze them. I'm looking for potatoes, vegetables and other basic foodstuffs (unlike my OH who makes a beeline for the bread and pastries *rolleyes*)
One lady at the bargain fridge was telling me about the potatoes and how it was worth throwing about half of them away for the price so I told her she could mash and freeze or blanche them as roasties and freeze to get more out of them. I can't abide waste
