Reduced Avocados to 65 cents for a pack of 5. MSRP was $32.50. I got it for $3.25. 25 avocados in total. In bags and in the freezer,” she wrote.
The bargain-loving wife mashed all the avocados in a bowl, divided them into 33 ziplock flat bags and placed them in the freezer.
She said the avocados remain green after thawing, taste the same and as usual are easy to use for toast, pasta and guacamole.
Her post received hundreds of likes and dozens of comments from impressed group members.
‘Nice score. My possum loves avocado, so I buy piles of it,” said one, while another wrote, “Why can’t I ever find such bargains? Well done.’
She said the avocados stay green, taste the same when thawed, and can be used on toast, pasta, and guacamole as normal.
Others shared their own ways to keep Australia’s favorite fruit fresher for longer.
“I had a bunch of avos that I put in a tub of water in the fridge while I was going away for a few days — fast forward in two weeks and they were still perfect!” a mother explained.
“I puree avo with some lemon juice and then freeze them in ice cubes ready to use…they thaw very quickly,” suggested another.

Previously, health and wellness guru Caroline Groth went viral for revealing her ‘life-changing’ hack for ripening hard avocados in just 24 hours
In the clip, she simply stores the avocado in a paper bag with a kiwi, as it apparently ‘releases ethylene gas’ – an important plant hormone released to induce ripening.
“The paper bag traps the gas so the process goes faster, meaning you’ll have ripe avocados within 24 hours,” the Sydney influencer wrote.
Caroline’s hack comes in the midst of Shepard avocado season, which is notoriously harder to ripen than Australia’s favorite variety Haas, and dozens in the comments have been grateful for the “baffling” idea.

‘But how? Stunned,” said one fan, while another commented, “This is life changing!!! Thank you’.
A third said she “needed” this tip and others shared their own avocado hacks.
“It also works with banana in a brown paper bag,” one woman wrote.
‘I have a hack for your hack. Only lightly press the top of the avocado to see if it is ripe, not the sides. Pushing on the sides will bruise you,” a second advised.
