I'm a busy woman...I don't have time to pair socks.
sure, I have time to update my facebook status a dozen times a day and organize my bookshelf by colour, but pair socks? Nope.
Mostly because I hate pairing socks. And it's hard to find time for the things we like least...there is always something less detestable to be done instead, isn't there?
A while back I shared how I avoid pairing socks at all for my oldest three children. But having one colour of socks for my twins just doesn't make sense yet: they've been given some adorable little socks that they will soon grow out of, replacing them seems silly. So I tried something that many of my readers suggested in the comments of my last post about the subject!
I stick a safety pin through the pair when I take them off the babies, and wash them like that.
When they come out of the dryer I can throw the pair, still pinned together, into the kids sock basket!
The basket sits on a half-wall in my laundry room. The laundry room is also the entry we use most, and we are a barefoot-unless-we're-going-somewhere sort of family, so socks in the laundry room just makes sense for us.
Thanks to all my clever readers who shared this tip with me. You gals are the best!
