RECYCLABLE SOCKS SUCK!

I don't know who invented reusable socks but they should be shot!  Those two packs of socks I bought over the Memorial Day weekend have already begun to fratenize with the other socks in the house.  There must be a gazillion socks here, and not a single clean pair for me to wear to work!  That does it, tomorrow I'm gathering ALL the socks and throwing them away!  After that its one pack of color coded socks per person in the house.  7 people, 6 pairs each.... Thats 42 pairs or 84 singles.  This is crazy!  Okay, barefoot... from here on out everyone will go barefoot!

For a while we had 4 sock baskets in the house. I had to keep going out and buying new laundry baskets because the old ones kept getting filled with socks. Finally I threw out every single sock and we bought all new socks. Everyone in the family had to choose their own distinctive brand. It worked for a couple weeks. We're back to 3 laundry baskets filled with socks at the present.

LMAO!! I would love to be able to be barefoot all the time. I have about 6 pairs of sandals so that I can go without socks all summer! I HATE shoes.

LOL Thats so funny!
I do go barefoot, well unless i leave the house then i just slip on a pair of sandals. Only time I wear socks is in winter. Cameron will only wear the ones that have grey tips at the toes and the heel, Robert never wears socks, so, no sock worries here. heh heh

When we moved 7 yrs ago, hubby made me throw away the lost socks that I had collected in a huge basket. He said if we didn't find them when we packed we were never finding them. SInce then, I have collected 2 more baskets, the last we used for cleaning rags. We have come to the conclusion, "George the 1 legged monster" has moved with us and still resides in the hall way closet where we put things where we can find them and they disappear!

Have you thought about disposable socks. Buy the cheapest sweatsocks you can (under a buck a pair), put on a new pair each morning, then trash them when you take them off and put on a new pair.

No washing, no sorting, and the fresh-sock feeling every day.
