A viral TikTok on how to save money on buying bananas has sparked online discussion.
#lifehacks: In the eight-second video, a man can be seen peeling a banana before placing it in a plastic bag. He then weighs the bag on a self-checkout kiosk scale.
“How my frugal boyfriend saves money on his bananas,” the clip’s onscreen text reads.
The TikTok was uploaded on May 22 by Australian content creators Maison and Mai. The couple runs the TikTok account @savingforboba, which is known for its playful, comedy life hacks.
“The secondhand embarrassment tho,” the caption of the video reads.
Reactions: The video, which has since garnered 850,000 views, has prompted mixed reactions from viewers.
While some users described the man as “smart,” others were not amused by his cost-saving measure on a product that is already fairly cheap. Some people argued for the woman to “break up” with him, while others said he is worth marrying.
“Dude will have more money than all of us,” one user wrote. “Very smart man.”
“That’s not frugal, that’s a Penny pincher,” another user commented.
“The weight of the plastic bag and the cost it added must be giving him sleepless nights,” one person said.
