FIVE years ago, you had to visit local cafes and supermarkets just before closing to bag the best yellow sticker bargains.
But that’s all a thing of the past thanks to food-waste fighting apps like Too Good to Go.
The bag contained £20 worth of food[/caption]
Earlier this week, savvy shopper Lucy Elizabeth was left chuffed by the staggering amount of food she got in her £5 Starbucks order.
She went through each item in the bag in a video posted on her TikTok account.
Totting up the price, Lucy received a £2.90 almost croissant, £2.50 chocolate chip cookie, £2.55 lemon muffin, a £4.70 breakfast sandwich, a £4.25 bacon roll and a £3.60 egg mayo sandwich.
In total, this haul would have ordinarily set Lucy back a cool £20.50.

But as it was going out of date that day, Lucy bagged the treats for just £5 on the app.
So how does it work? The idea is that stores sign up to sell mystery boxes of items that are about to go off for a reduced price.

You pay through the app and then get given a slot before closing time to go and pick it up.
And while this isn’t the first time Lucy has bought one of the discounted Starbucks bags, this is by far her best one.
She added: “I got all of this for £5. This one of my better Starbucks bags!
“I’ve had a cold all week so I can’t wait to eat all of this food.”
“That’s really good,” one viewer replied. “I love Starbucks cookies honestly my favourite.”
Another added: “Pretty decent considering it’s expensive in there!”
“This one is great,” a third gushed.
