A man has shared a simple way to spend less time at the supermarket with what he has dubbed the “best shopping hack”.
The man explained that he was able to cut down how long it takes him to go shopping in a video he shared on TikTok, where he’s known as @1980sgamer.
Instead of packing all of his food into plastic bags once he’s paid for it, he leaves everything loose in the trolley and heads to the car, which is where the hack comes into force.
