Woolworths Shopper's Bizarre Banana Hack To Save Money!
2023/07/28

This story is about a man who has a strange money-saving hack when buying bananas at a supermarket. His girlfriend captured this behavior on video and shared it on TikTok. In the video, the man can be seen picking a banana, peeling off the skin, and putting it in a bag.

At the checkout, he weighs the banana without the peel. Social media users criticized the man, calling him a penny pincher and advising his girlfriend to break up with him. A study from New Mexico State University found that the peel accounts for 12.5% of the banana's weight, so by removing it, the man saves 10 cents per banana. The story also mentions a survey that revealed 10% of shoppers deliberately scan the wrong items to save money and some even admitted to stealing items.

To combat this, supermarkets have introduced surveillance cameras and high-tech scanning systems. Coles and Woolworths, two major supermarket chains in Australia, lose billions of dollars each year due to theft.
