Mum-of-22 Sue Radford starts bumper process of Christmas shopping for her brood & shares how much she spends on each kid
CHRISTMAS shopping when you have lots of kids can be a big task – so imagine how time-consuming it is for mum-of-22 Sue Radford.
The mum of Britain’s biggest family revealed she has already started on the mammoth task of finding gifts for her bumper brood.
Taking to Instagram, Lancashire-based Sue showed how she has done a big toy order from Smyths Toys, and wrote: “So it begins.”
We can't deny that Christmas is a hugely stressful (and expensive) time for most parents – but when you have 22 kids, the costs shoot through the roof.
As the parents of Britain's biggest family, Noel and Sue always go the extra mile to ensure their ALL kids have a very special Christmas.
But needless to say, this doesn't come cheap – and the proud parents reportedly spent a whopping £5,000 on presents every December and a further £300 on their food shop.
In previous years, Noel and Sue revealed that they spend between £100 and £250 on each of their children.
So in the months leading up to Christmas, the parents pinch their pennies to save £5,500 to buy the kids' presents.
And while most families simply chuck their presents under the tree when they're wrapped, Sue has a personalised sack for each child so the gifts don't get mixed up – and to save herself having to buy hundreds of tags.
What's more, Noel and Sue also get through a staggering 70 rolls of wrapping paper every year.
Unsurprisingly, Sue is a bit of a pro when it comes to gift wrapping and considers herself a "demon wrapper".
According to Mail Online, she can wrap 20 presents in just 15 minutes – and can easily get hundreds of gifts ready in a single evening.
The family famously doesn’t rely on benefits and is supported by their pie shop business.
The Radfords, who live in a 10-bed former care home, often show off their millionaire lifestyle on Instagram.
This includes having an outdoor cinema, TV bed, new £6,500 fridge, and a £30,000 Range Rover car.
The family have recently opened their doors for Channel 5’s 22 Kids and Counting show, which documented their lives under one roof.
In the show, Sue revealed they have spent £1million raising their large brood and she has been pregnant for 16-and-a-half YEARS.
