Before putting on your socks, rub your feet with a decent layer of foot cream, be it petroleum jelly, or Gold Bond foot cream, or cocoa butter, or something sort of thick. Once you put your socks over it, the socks stay put and keeps them from rubbing against you. It's helped soften up my feet quite a bit and keeps the rubbing to a minimum. I know it seems like it would feel weird, but you don't even notice it once the socks are on!
Are there days in the week when you can make plans to stay put all day long? Park that car and don't move it for the entire day. Clean house, do yard work, walk to the store, play board games. If you think of your vehicle as a huge money drain, which it is, you can plan your week and your chore routes to drive less. Once in awhile, don't move your car at all for 24 hours.
I had problems doing my Zumba, Turbo Jam and Hip Hop Abs workouts on carpet. The carpet inhibits some movements so I decided to buy a chairmat from the office supply store. It stays put, protects the carpet and has the right amount of slickness without being too slippery.
