A mum had no idea her simple idea to save money as she shopped would become a viral sensation on social media, just minutes after she posted it.
Mum, Jane Stine, shared her idea, which she uses all the time when she is shopping with her kids in supermarkets - because she is fed up with splashing out on expensive food items just because the kids want them.
Taking to Facebook, Jane wrote “Here’s my best parenting hack. You know how kids always want Paw Patrol yogurt or Disney waffles or whatever?
“Bring your own stickers to the grocery store and start sticking. Today we’re having Winnie the Pooh brand spaghetti squash. It goes perfectly with Toy Story broccoli.”
Her post quickly received tens of thousands of comments and has been shared more than 95,000 times, with people dubbing the simple hack ‘brilliant’ and ‘genius’.
"This might actually change my life," said one commenter.
"Genius! Buying stickers today," said another.
"Wow! You just won a parenting gold award," added one mum..
Others realised the supermarket hack had a short life-span and they could only use it while their kids were tiny - and before they worked out what was going on.
"My kid would love this for maybe three trips to the supermarket, so I may as well get my stickers and stock up now," wrote one parent. "Kids catch on pretty quick as they get older!"
