5 Unique Ways to Fold Your Socks - Philosockphy's sock of the month

You probably wear the same socks all the time, until they’re not so comfortable anymore and you throw them away, right? You don’t wear them again until they get disgusting and you throw them away again! This isn’t what life was meant to be like! Luckily, Philosockphy has an amazing subscription service which will bring a new pair of socks to your door every month. All you have to do is figure out how to fold your socks in unique ways so that each pair looks different from the last!


1) The Basic Fold

The Basic Fold is a good way to fold your socks when you want a quick and easy option. The Basic Fold is actually a four step process: lay the sock out flat, grasp one corner of the sock and pull it over the rest, tuck that corner under, then tuck in the two remaining corners. This method folds your socks into thirds and makes them easier to store.
This is a great option for dress socks, ankle socks or crew socks as they are all folded evenly. If you have more than one pair of any type of socks this method also makes it easy for you put them away separately.


2) The Rolling Method

One of the most common ways to fold socks is the rolling method. This method involves rolling each sock into a tube shape, then stacking them on top of each other and putting them in a drawer. This way makes it easier to find socks later because they are all stacked next to each other. To make this more efficient, you can use one hand for grabbing socks and the other for rolling them up.
The Rolling Method is great for straightening out wrinkles in your clothes, but not so much when it comes down to your socks since they don't have any spare fabric that needs smoothing out. But if you want something quick and easy, this might be a good option for you!


3) The Bunching Method

The Bunching Method is a fun and creative way to store your socks in a drawer. Each pair is placed on top of each other so that they are stacked on their sides, rather than standing up vertically. This makes them take up less space and you can easily see which pairs are clean and which need washing. The best part? You can use this same method for your underwear!

4) The Military Method

The military method is a sock-folding technique that is often used by soldiers. The main idea behind this method is that you fold your socks in such a way as to create an easy-to-navigate stack, which will make it easier for you when you're digging through your laundry hamper and looking for socks. The method also has benefits like ensuring that each pair of socks is clean and dry before being worn, as well as reducing the likelihood that your clothes will smell like old sweaty sock. If you'd prefer not to use this folding technique but still want to ensure your socks don't get mixed up with others', try using brightly colored socks or ribbons.


5) The Trifold Method

If you're a fan of wearing ankle socks, this is the fold for you. Simply fold your sock in half so that your heel and toes are together. Next, fold it in half again so that one side is on top and the other side is on bottom. Finally, take your foot and place it inside the sock with your heel at the back end. This will keep your feet nice and warm by keeping them bundled up when they're not inside shoes.
A trifold is an easy way to make sure that each side stays separate from each other! Plus, if you find yourself with more than one pair of socks, you can try out this method with both pairs!
