NO Christmas panto trip is complete with some treats to snack on during the show.
But that can work out pretty pricey – especially if you have 54 kids to buy for.
Well, not if you're Becky Rutherford, who took to Facebook group Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK group and explained how she managed to make 54 bags of goodies for just 84p each.
In the post, she shared a series of snaps of the paper brown bags which were filled with sweets – including popcorn, Skittles, chocolate buttons and Maryland cookies.
Becky penned: "Taking my Scout group to our annual Panto trip tomorrow night.
"Having 54 to buy for, I try and keep the costs down where I can.
