  • A mum has revealed epic Big W savings
  • She spent $46 and got $489 worth of clothes

A super thrifty mum has revealed how she saved $443 on a recent shopping haul for her kids – after noticing a sale rack outside Big W.

The savvy mum spent just $46 at the shop, buying 23 new shirts, sweaters, dresses and matching sets for her daughter.

‘Love it when Big W has a rack of $2 clothes. Stashed up on pre school and baby stuff,’ she said, showing off proof of her incredible haul.

The woman, who lives in Australia, said she was just ‘walking past, filling in time’ when she noticed the end-of-season clearance rack.

She managed to get a popular ‘Bluey’ tutu dress and cute dinosaur dress for her daughter as well as a Carebears jumper and retro Mickey Mouse shirt.

People appeared green with envy over her incredible luck, but she said there was ‘heaps left’ and others backed her up.

‘It varies from store-to-store but they all seem to have stock to get rid of.’

They added that everything on the clearance rack ‘scans in at $2’ even if there’s a higher price tag.

‘If it has the yellow sticker it’s probably only $2, they just haven’t physically marked it so the tag will still say $7 or $10,’ one savvy shopper noted.

One mum said she ‘spent $30 and got a bag full of clothes’ thanks to the woman’s timely post.

‘Some for my baby for now and size 2’s lol.. a dress for my niece and some stuff for me,’ she said, noting it saved her $148.

And she wasn’t alone, dozens thanked her for sharing, noting they had saved hundreds.

‘I spent $80 and saved $500, thanks so much for sharing,’ one mum said.

Others begged to know when ‘the sale might end’.

But people were quick to point out it was just clearance stock.

‘It will end when there’s nothing left. Big W usually does this at the end of every season.’ they said.

Others simply congratulated the mum on her luck.

‘I would have dropped dead if I had seen that,’ one woman said.

‘This is amazing, hope it helps your family get through,’ said another.
