Parenting Hack: Saving money on shoes with some pipe insulation
So this is how it goes. So simple.
Grab some pipe insulation, and just start hacking away at it to make it fit inside the shoe, to pad it instead of using cotton balls.
Then shove it in there. Test with your child to make sure it fits and looks right.
Then put the shoe pad over it so it feels comfortable.
Little Bun walks a little awkwardly because the shoe IS too long for his foot, and has extra length he doesn’t feel / is not used to, but he is learning and the shoe fits when he is walking, he just needs to learn how to lift his foot properly.
Savings? Like $400 a year by my estimates. He grows SO QUICKLY.
Are you using shoes as much with Corona?
Sandals are useful in warmer months, cause there’s room to grow.
Lastly, you’re a fashion fiend, and buy a lot… Perhaps your kiddo needing shoes regularly ain’t really worth the hack?
But what would I know. I will GTFO if that’s your reponse…
