A Little About Me

Everyone calls me “The Old Lady in the Shoe” because I have so many children I don’t know what to do.  Our story starts twenty two years ago when we first became foster parents; we adopted two girls then gave birth to three more.  We thought we were “done.”  Then I got this wild idea that we should have a son, so we adopted seven more children; five boys and two girls. Thus, the name, “The Old Lady in the Shoe.”

Everyone needs free and inexpensive items: games, educational websites, food, books, whatever.  So I started this website and blog to help parents and others find great deals on everything they need.


There was an old lady who lived in a shoe.

She needed some freebies, like most Mom’s do.

She had so many children she was banging her head,

So she signed onto her computer and put them to bed.


The Shoelady Store and Blog are currently  being remodeled—Please be patient if those link don’t work.   Thank you!
