The cost of living has been getting pretty high in New Zealand, so we’re all looking for little ways to save our coins.
One woman over in Aussie has a tip for not breaking the bank on shoes by shopping in the… children's department?!
She shared the hack to a Facebook group dedicated to Kmart hacks and tricks; "Did you know that a size 6 kids shoe is the same as a size 7/8 women's????"
I've known this for a few years now and always buy the kids boots. 1 because they are cooler and 2 they are normally a little bit cheaper too
People were loving the tip on Facebook, commenting; "I did not know this, thank you for the tip, am going to use this new information wisely," and "Does this mean I can buy light up and glitter shoes!!".
There were even a few out there who use the tip on the regular!
"This is awesome! Especially when it comes to sneakers - depending on the style I can wear a kids size 5 or 6. Much more fun designs & much cheaper!!"
"I've known this for more than half my life hahaha... wanted a pair of sneakers over $200 adult, same shoe slight design change in pattern kids $80, uh yeh kids for sure!"
"I do this with Nike shoes. I wear a youth size 5 and they are around $99 a pair. Women's size I wear a size 6 or sometimes smaller and they start at $179. Nike have most of the same colours and styles for kids and adults,"
