Eventually, many shoppers end up with a couple of hastily (and poorly) packed shopping backs with the rest of the shopping strewn across the trolley.

But, fear no more, as there’s now a clever trick for keeping up with the staff.

Seasoned shopper Jon Fox shared his special secret to a speedy shop – a well positioned IKEA bag.

He tweeted: “@AldiUK Friday big shop hack. So much faster than packing at the shelf afterwards. Just make sure your shopping is loaded heavy to light so nothing gets crushed!”

With the huge blue bag safely in the trolley, shoppers can just put their items into the bag and carry it out to the car.
