Mum-of-22 Sue Radford gives sneak peek into her VERY messy shoe cupboard

LIFE must be crazy when you have 22 kids to take care of – it’s easy to see how the house could get into a mess.

Sue Radford, 46, knows this only too well as she’s updated fans of her VERY untidy shoe cupboard.

The shoe cupboard, which has mismatched shoes shoved into shelves and a mound of random shoes on the floor around the unit, is a total mess proving she’s not quite super mum. 

Of course, with 22 kids comes a large amount of shoes, and keeping the many pairs of shoes neat, organised, and in their pairs must be a mammoth task, especially with little ones charging around. 

In the story, Sue asks if anyone has any tips for a better approach to show storage, and explains that the current unit is headed for the dump. 

The desperate mum has captioned the image: “This show storage is the BAIN of my life any shoe storage ideas please share them as this is going in the skip”. 

Sue lives in Lancashire with husband Noel Radford and their sizeable family, where they live in a 10-bedroom former care home, which they recently renovated. 

The hard-working parents, who support themselves and their kids with a bakery and famously don’t rely on benefits, currently have 18 of their children living at home, including 19-year-old Millie who gave birth to her first child Ophelia in September 2020. 

The home is spread across four storeys with many of the children sharing bedrooms. Despite being a busy household, the home is always immaculate thanks to stay-at-home mum Sue. 

Sue and Noel are parents to Chris, 32, Sophie, 27, Chloe, 25, Jack, 24, Daniel, 22, Luke, 20, Millie, 19, Katie, 18, James, 17, Ellie, 16, Aimee, 15, Josh, 13, Max, 12, Tillie, 11, Oscar, nine, Casper, eight, Hallie, six, Phoebe, four, Archie, three, Bonnie, two, and Heidie, one. 

Sadly, the couple’s 17th child Alfie was still born in 2014. 

Through their popular social media pages and YouTube channel, the family has thousands of followers.
