What in the world possessed me to buy kid socks that had different colored stripes, heels, and toes? This meant I had to match socks after washing them. What a waste of time. Plus, when they lost a sock, which my boys do at least once a week, the mate was totally useless.
Thankfully, their feet finally grew enough to justify the purchase of new socks. This time I bought 30 pairs of all white socks. No more matching! So, much time saved. Seriously. Each of my kids often goes through 2 pairs of socks a day. (They got some serious foot- stank going on when they come home from preschool. So before we go out in the late afternoon they put on a pair of clean socks.) This means I’m washing 28 pairs of socks a week. No longer having to match socks should save hours!
