There is no word more dreaded, no chore more avoided than 'Socks'. We all have that pile of single socks, the one thats mocking you from your closet. I have one too. Every once in a while, usually when someone complains they have no socks, I have to go through that pile and match pairs. This is my system.
Whats left goes back into my bucket. Its an old pretzel container. We use these things for everything. Then it goes back into my closet, not to see daylight again for months. Or until it over flows. Which ever comes first.
I hope you appreciated all the thought and effort I put into my system. It took me like 1 maybe 2 minutes to come up with it. I know, pure genius.
At least you know you aren't alone. And think, I have 16 feet whose socks go in there. And people wonder why my kids wear sandals 75% of the year.
