With prices on the rise and Christmas just around the corner, saving money has never been as important. One mother has shared how she gets up to 80 percent off when shopping at Marks and Spencer. 

Jo Maxted, 36, has revealed her biggest money-saving tip. 

Many are aware of the ‘yellow stickers’, or reduced stickers on products which are near their sell by date. 

These items can be sold up to 80 percent less than their original price. 

Combine that with seasonal events and Jo picks up some cracking bargains. 

For example, she was able to buy a Father’s Day steak reduced from £20 to £4. 

That is an impressive saving of £16, or 80 precent from the original price. 

The mother-of-four also explained how she managed to get M&S roast chickens that had been packaged up for Easter for £2 each from the dine in meal selection. 

Speaking about her bargains, Jo said: “I do love M&S products but they are more expensive than what you would find in Asda or Aldi, so it feels great to get stuff at a fraction of the full price.

“On Father’s Day, M&S were selling sirloin steak for £20, and two days later I got it for £4.

“The same thing happened at Easter and Christmas. I’ve picked up turkeys for £2 from over £30.

“This Easter just gone, I managed to get their Easter packaged roast chickens for £2 each from their dine in £20 meal deal section.

“We love M&S posh dog sausages and they’re usually £4.50 a pack,” she continued. 

“They were doing Halloween packaged ones cut in half and I got those today for £2 with a week’s sell by date on.” 

As for how Jo manages to find the products at their cheapest, she told “It’s all about going in at the right time. 

“I always check the use by or best before dates and check if they can be frozen when it’s fresh food.”

Another impressive item Jo picked up was Colin the Caterpillar cakes around Halloween costing just 50p. 

The Colin cake jars are normally priced at £4 each but Jo bagged five packs for £1 each –  this would’ve cost her £20 normally.

She also found bags of Mini Eggs that cost £2 down to 50p, and jelly sweets for 50p.

Each M&S store has a different time for discounting products. 

Jo said she usually goes into her local M&S “two or three times a week to have a look”.
