An Australian shopper has sparked heated debate online after buying seven markdown roast chickens from Woolworths.
“No, I didn’t buy them all. Yes I left some for others. Yes, we eat a lot of chicken. No it won’t be wasted,’ she wrote in the post referring to previous arguments in the group where people accused shoppers of being ‘rude’ for ‘grabbing’ food at reduced price.

The bargain hunter’s post drew hundreds of likes and dozens of comments from other shoppers saying she shouldn’t have to justify her haul.
“It doesn’t matter if you bought them all!” You have the right to buy whatever you want. I would have bought a few, good score,” one mum wrote.
“When I find cheap meat, I usually buy the lot. I don’t care what people think. I’m thinking about the future for my family, if they’re not sold they’re thrown away so there’s no need to justify it to anyone because your money is as good as anyone’s anyone else,’ a second commented.
Another customer shared her experience of arguing with a woman who disagreed with her taking more than one unmarked chicken.
“I almost got into a fight with a lady for putting up two chickens for sale ($3.34 each). I brought one for my elderly neighbor who had the flu,” she recalls.
“She told me it was rude to take more than one and that I was now starving her children for tea. When I told her to back off, she asked the manager to take the chicken away from me – he didn’t.
The chicken lover’s post comes just weeks after another member of the group was dubbed ‘selfish’ and ‘greedy’ for his huge batch of cut-price fish.
The woman bought “every packet” of premium salmon and trout that had been reduced from $11 to just $1.10.
She posted an image of her cart full of packets of fish to the group and drew many comments, many of which came to her defense.
“Imagine being so selfish, how embarrassing,” one woman commented while another wrote, “Surely greedy people these days.”
“Yeah, good price, but wouldn’t it be nice to leave some to someone else,” said a third.

‘I couldn’t agree more. Greed seems to take over. Handing over a few packages could have fed another family for the night, but no one thinks of others these days,” another replied.
Other shoppers applauded the thrifty mom for her impressive haul with a warning to check quality before cooking and wondering if the fish can even be frozen.
‘I love a shelf cleaner because you’ve saved this department from having to dump it when no one else is buying it. I love your work,” said one buyer.
‘Excellent score, eaten better than landfill. Freeze it and eat happily for days,” a second replied.
“I only bought salmon once when it was marked down and when I opened it it was rotten.” Too close to use by date for my taste, especially fish,” another explained.
“Warning, it may not be frozen, read the packaging,” one shopper suggested.
