WE’VE all popped out for a pint of milk or a pair of socks, only to return home hours later laden with shopping bags.
You get distracted by offers, sale items and must-have goodies when wandering the aisles – particularly in B&M.
The department store is infamous for seeing shoppers nip in for one item, then leave with half the shop in their trolley.
And that’s exactly what happened to one woman, who popped into her local B&M for cleaning supplies – and walked out with four trolley’s worth of stock.
The woman went shopping with her mum, who filmed her mountain of goodies in the carpark.
Her mum shared the clip to TikTok, saying: “When you go shopping to B&M with your shopaholic daughter.”
The camera pans the line of trolleys, showing pink rugs, bedding, as well as other bits of homeware – and even some cleaning products at the bottom of the trolley.
Her mum asks: “Can I ask you, why have you bought four trolley’s full of stuff.
“I cannot believe you have bought this much stuff.”
And she later admitted the shopping haul had cost “a lot” of money.
The pair faced the daunting task of packing up their shopping, but luckily they drove a huge car so won’t have to do two trips.
But they admitted they needed help from the staff pushing all four trolleys to the car.
The relatable mother-daughter shopping trip has racked up thousands of likes, as people jokingly branded the store ‘dangerous’.
One woman said: “Why risk going back in when you can do it in one.”
Another wrote: “B&M is dangerous.”
A third agreed, saying: “Omg. Must admit B&M is dangerous.”
This woman admitted: “I’m the same when I go in that shop.”
Someone else wrote: “It’s easy done in B&M I love the place bank card not so much.”
