Solution to Mis-Matched Socks!

Laundry...UGH! Folding towels are not so bad, even the dark load isn't  that bad. But I hate folding whites! More than that...I hate matching socks! :) Until.......I changed the way I do things to a more effective system.

The problem was that every kid had massive socks and massive colors and would lose just one of them. Then for months we had the lone-ranger sock! Soooo frustrating. The kids don't like to help match socks because they are frustrated that the task is too daunting.

The fix?

1. Give every sock in your household to Goodwill! ALL of them...start from scratch. Trust HAVE TO DO IT. :)

2. Buy 15 pairs of socks (2 packs) of your child's favorite type of sock. BUT IT HAS  to have a small amount of one color. (Tommy gets white with Red toe, Joey gets white socks with Blue toes.) That way they are easy to match and it won't matter if they ever lose one of them.

3. Enlist your kids to fold socks because NOW it is easy-breezy!

Loving life MATCHED up!

    Here’s my tip…..when I have socks who have lost their mate, I use the lone sock for dusting or as a rag. Works great and I don’t feel so bad about throwing it away after it’s been used to dust!!
