The Sock Box
What to do with those mismatched socks? Well, my solution is pretty simple. I have a carboard box in my laundry room set aside just for socks. When I do a load of laundry and it has been washed, dryed, folded, if there are mismatched socks, I simply throw them in the “Sock Box”.
Then at the end of every month, or as by necessity, I go through the sock box and sort what I have found. Whatever socks do not have matches go to Sock Heaven: arts & crafts bin for sock puppets; rags for furniture and window cleaning; potpourri satchets for in closets and drawers; and the trash.
In reality, socks are just not worth keeping around for longer than that if the matches haven’t been found. I mean, really, do socks mean that much to you that you must clutter your home, your sock drawer, your laundry room with all the single socks that will never find their mates?
Not for me. So with this system I set myself free from sock clutter. It Works for Me!
