Does this look familiar?
Here's some tips on how to keep socks together:
- Buy men's socks in bulk packages - 10 whites for sport socks, 10 blacks and 10 browns, etc for dress or casual socks. Then if you lose one, just wait until you lose another and you'll still have a matching pair. The same can be done with women's socks. Trouser socks and sport socks for women come in bulk packages also.
- Buy an inexpensive mesh lingerie bag for each family member's socks and place it beside their laundry hamper. A 12" X 18" bag is about $2. Just toss the whole bag in and you'll never have to match socks again. In a perfect world, it could work that way, smile.
- Rubber bands also work well. Place a bag of rubber bands within easy reach of the hamper and ask each family member to rubber band their matching socks together before putting them in the hamper. Some people use safety pins for the same purpose, but I'm always afraid they'll come undone in the wash and give someone a pinch.
The last I heard from the lonely sock, he was doing a rendition of Three Dog Night's lyrics:
"one is the loneliest number, since you went away".........
