Never Match Socks Again



I hate to match socks. Solution: I went to JoAnn's & bought a package of 200 large safety pins. Now I take off my socks & I pin them together (passing through the sock once per sock) and throw them in the hamper. By pinning loosely they are able to be washed, dried & put away without matching!

  • I have 4 boys and I taught them to take off their socks and put one inside the other, so I was always able to find the mate. I also, bought about 12 pair of matching socks so they all looked alike when I washed. I never wasted money on "designer" socks and then were upset if one got lost at the GYM or some play ground. - by JIBBIE49
