Teenager Feeds Homeless People for 600 Pounds, Having Spent 4 Pence
Jordan Cox, a sixteen year old teenager from Brentwood used supermarket coupons to buy £600 worth of shopping for just 4p – and gave it all to poor families for Christmas.
Jordan Cox, scoured the internet and magazines to collect money-off and cashback vouchers for dozens of products. He then went on a shopping spree and filled three trolleys with goodies such as biscuits, cheese, fruit juice, whipped cream, soup and even posh Gressingham poussin.
“I decided that I wanted to help as many people as I can, and to also show that it’s possible to shop very cheaply, if you know how”, explains Jordan.
The cashier had to call the manager because she had never seen so many coupons. He said: “I had a big crowd and I felt like a celebrity. My heart was pounding.” But he was “stunned” when the coupons gave him a 99.9% discount. The kind youngster later headed to a nearby charity doorstep to hand out food to the needy.
Jordan got into “extreme couponing” last year when his parents split and mum Debbie Cox struggled to cope. He has cut the weekly shopping bill from £60 to £10.
His proud mother Debbie Cox, said: “He’s a real whizz at saving and I’m glad he turned his talents to helping as many people as possible", the Daily Mirror informs.
