Organized Shopper shares an “ingenious” checkout hack that ensures staff put exactly what you want in each bag
- The Australian supermarket shopper has shared her checkout hack on TikTok
- She places bags between the items she wants grouped on the conveyor belt
- She said, “Who else puts bags between their groceries so the cashier knows?”
An Australian supermarket shopper has shared footage of herself placing bags between her groceries on the conveyor belt and signaling to the cashier how she would like everything wrapped.
The clever idea, posted online by a TikTok account called @peachedandco, shows how to pack heavier items in one bag and lighter options in another.
“Who else puts their grocery bags among the groceries so the cashier knows what to put in each bag?” The TikToker captioned the video.

The viral post’s author, a former cashier herself, confessed that she hated packing when groceries were simply dumped off the conveyor belt, only for customers to later complain about how it was packaged.
“I have to start doing that with the bags. I arrange my things in packing order and they still move them around,” said one shopper.
“I didn’t, but now I could! Great idea,” replied another.
“Oh my god, what is this magic?” a third responded.
But there were many of their supporters who couldn’t believe Australians weren’t packing their own bags, as is the norm in the UK and Europe.
The original poster explained that Coles and Woolworths customers had to pack their bags for them, while Aldi customers had to be prepared to pack their own
“In the Netherlands you pay for your suitcase and pack it yourself,” said one foreigner.
“As a former cashier living in Germany, when someone asked me to pack their groceries until they left, I would just stare at them,” said another.
“We’re going strong and packing our own groceries in England,” said a third.
