The Department of Missing Socks. We all have them. Does the dryer eat them?
I personally hate socks. I only wear them in the winter, and only when I leave the house. But my whole house loves socks. We have tons and tons of socks.
I don’t know about you, but I hate folding socks, and finding their mates.
To Make my life easier, I buy only White socks and Black Socks. I refuse to buy socks with pink toes, or blue heels, or multiple coloured socks, because the life of a sock in my house only goes as far as its mate.
This way I only purchase two types of socks, and if a mate goes missing, it’s not so drastic, cause there’s enough mates to go around, that eventually on its own will find a new mate.
Since I have two teenagers. My son has the same size feet as his dad. So they get all the black ones. And my daughter and I are very close together in size, that we wear the same socks, so we get the white socks.
No more finding mates! No more money spent on lost socks.
Options: You could expand what I have done, and everyone has different colours, or you could do all one color. I now only need to buy about 18 black and 18 white per year. It has simplified my laundry process.
Sure I still have to throw the odd sock that has a hole in it, but generally I find I’m not running out buying more socks. Sure we have the odd pair of “dress socks” or perhaps the odd pair of wool socks. But there’s no absolute need to run out and buy a dozen pair of these. I just wait till I need them, and if they can not be found, then I will go out and buy a pair or two.
So What do you do for socks and the dreaded Missing pair?
