Welcome to Part 2 in my 3 part series to getting the sock monster under control! In Part 1 we tackled the actual socks. Each kid now has only one color and style of sock, so there is no matching needed! Just look and pick.
Socks are the most amazing article of clothing. They hate their lives. They’re in the shoes with stinky feet, the boring drawers. The dryer is their only chance to escape and they all know it. They do escape from the dryer. They plan it the night before. “Tomorrow. The dryer. I’m going. You wait here.” -Jerry Seinfeld
WHERE DID IT GO?
The second part of sock organization is the laundry sorting! Where DO they go? Sometimes I wonder if I should just sit and watch the washing machine and dryer. Something happens between the time the socks enter the washing machine until the time I take them all out for distributing in their proper place.
In Target I picked up lingerie mesh bags. If you have Amazon credit, check this out! Two Pack of lingerie mesh bags are only $4.64 down from $12.99! That’s cheaper then the ones I found at Target!
How does this work?
- Each person gets their own mesh bag for their socks.
- Put dirty socks directly into the bag not the main hamper.
- Label or dye each bag to easily identify which bag belongs to whom.
