An enterprising bargain hunter has bagged the deal of the century by picking up a Tefal Actifry usually worth £94.99 for just £2.
Lucy Stevens, 26, from Shrewsbury, posted a photo of her bargain purchase on Facebook group Latest Deals, Extreme Couponing & Bargains Group, writing: “Got a bargin at local bootsale today, Tefal Actifry for £2! Just needed a bit of a scrub! Did anybody else find any bargins?”
The Actifry can cook everything from starters to desserts and chips to curries using just a teaspoon of oil for a healthier meal.
Lucy’s post impressed fellow members of the money-saving community, garnering nearly 150 likes and a range of congratulatory comments including: “Gosh that’s a bloody bargain” and “Amazing! Well done.”
Lucy, a mother-of-one, told LatestDeals.co.uk: “I go to my local car boot every Sunday as I believe one person's junk is another person's treasure! I had wanted a Tefal Actifry for a very long time but unfortunately couldn't afford one so I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw one on a stall.
“It was quite dirty as the people that were selling it had stored it in their garage due to not using it. The lady wanted £3 for it but being cheeky I asked if she would take £2!
“I took it home and scrubbed it all - as a fan of Mrs Hinch I knew exactly what to use! We used it that evening and it worked perfectly! It is a great feeling knowing that you have had a fantastic bargain and also reusing things so they don’t end up in landfill.”
Lucy also provided tips for fellow bargain hunters who are wondering how to grab deals at car boot sales.
She advised: “I started going to boot sales when I was pregnant as you can get so many new or almost new kids items due to them not using them for very long.
“My tips would be never be afraid to ask, people want to sell just as much as you want to buy. There is always room for a haggle!
“Also don’t be put off if you go one week and find nothing, some weeks I can go and buy nothing at all, while other weeks I can come home with a car full. My most random find was a Gordon Ramsay cookbook hand-signed by himself. I paid £1 for it for my partner who is training to be a chef!”
