Socks: Life Lessons Learned the Hard Way, Part 1

Life lessons learned the hard way …. keeping socks in order :

  1. Don’t expect both socks will enter and exit the washing machine at the same time.
  2. Don’t buy just one pair of socks.
  3. Instead, pretend you’re a spider and buy four pairs of socks. That way, you have a better chance of having actual matching pairs to wear. Also, as they wear out one by one, you can continue wearing them as pairs.
  4. At the very least, pretend you’re a sheep, cat, hippo etc.
  5. Don’t bother with cute little devices to keep socks together. They are clutter and a pain to use.
  6. Instead, use a corner of a non-sock drawer to store the orphaned socks. Try to reunite them every time you are putting away clean socks.
