A SAVVY Shopper who went to Primark to pick up a pack of socks was stunned up spending much more than she bargained for.

Maria Joyson revealed she was baffled when she got to the till to pay for her items – and saw it came to £38.50.

In a TikTok video, she said: "Every time I go to Primark I get a shock at the till.

"This was £38.50 and I literally thought I bought a pack of socks.

"What did you get you ask? Well, I'm going to show you.

"It's going to be a learning experience for us both."
