The person who paid for Pete Baguley's groceries at Coles Eastwood Street in Ballarat, Victoria, last week has been found.
If you don't remember, Mr Baguley was trying to find a woman who out-of-the-blue paid for his groceries so he could say thank you.
Mr Baguley was shopping and when he went to pay the worker at the check-out said he only owed 50 cents for his groceries as the woman in the previous aisle had paid for him.
Gordon resident Renata Johnson has been identified as the woman who handed over a bunch of $1 and $2 coins at the check-out last Monday morning which paid for Mr Baguley's groceries.
Ms Johnson said having just spent about $80 on her own groceries, she noticed that Mr Baguley had only a few basics in his shopping.
"I just grabbed all the gold out of my wallet and handed it over," she said. "I didn't want to make a big deal out of it, so I just got out of there pretty quick because I understand there are some people that can be embarrassed by it.

"I actually discovered that Pete had spoken out when I read it online, and I thought 'oh that's me'. I didn't even tell my husband I'd done it."
After the surprise to find that all but 50c of his groceries had been paid for, Mr Baguley contacted The Courier to try and find the mystery shopper to say 'thanks'.
"I pulled out a $20 and they gave me $19.50 back. I was in shock," he said.
"I just want to find her to say 'thank you' but I couldn't find her anywhere. I just thought 'what a lovely gesture, how beautiful is that?' You hear of a lot of bad things in the world, but there's a lot of good out there as well. It shows that we are still a community and there are people who look out for others."
Ms Johnson said particularly this year, it did not hurt to give something back to others.
"I know I've been in situations in the past where something like that would have been very much appreciated," she said.
"I had one experience where my husband had been in hospital for a month and someone helping out would have made a world of difference.
"I've heard of a lot of situations where people have done something similar and it's gone on for four or five people in the queue, eventually there is someone that can use some support, it's nice to be able to help out someone."
