A SAVVY mum has shared her hack for making kids shoe shopping way easier but people say she might be going about it the wrong way. 

The mum says it’s the perfect hack for back to school shopping when you have a toddler with fast growing feet. 

Autumn Grace shared her hack in a TikTok video online.

She said: “This is a great mum and dad hack for back to school shopping!”

The mum explained she measures all of her children's feet before she goes shoe shopping and all she uses is a piece of string. 

Autumn even said she wished she knew about the hack when her child was younger.
