A mom who likes to share parenting tips and tricks has shown TikTok users that there’s a way to double-check a child’s shoe size when they’re not around to try shoes on themselves.

Lauren Clutter, 34, shared her “mom hack for back-to-school shoe shopping” in mid-July, where she recommends tracing the shape of a child’s foot on paper and cutting the traced image out as a reference size that can be used when parents shop alone.

She suggests parents use this method “in addition to writing down your kids’ shoe sizes.” 

“I know what styles my kids like and I listen to them when they point things out,” she wrote to one user. In a separate comment, she said her sons “really don’t care” and usually like what she picks out while her daughter chimes in from time to time or chooses to be surprised.

When asked how effective the hack is, Clutter wrote, “Got shoes for all the kids today and they all fit! One was not the size I’d written down so I was glad I had these with me to check.”

Lauren Clutter, a mother of four, showed TikTok users how they can double-check a child’s shoe size whenever they’re shopping without their kids.

“I have done this on cardboard and it works soooo well,” another TikTok user added. “You can slide it in the shoe this way too!”

Clutter did not immediately respond to FOX News’ request for comment.
