Five Unusual Ways to Fold Your Socks

How many socks do you own? If you’re like most people, it’s probably too many. Socks tend to pile up in our dresser drawers and dresser top, in the corners of our laundry room, and stuffed in the back of our sock drawer until we need to buy another set just to have something clean to wear with our shoes. Some people even collect socks as their passion (yes, there’s actually an organization dedicated to this). But what if there was a better way to keep your socks organized and easily accessible?

The sock of the month club

cool socks are pricey, aren’t they? And how can you make sure you don’t end up with three pairs of striped blue socks or that your mom doesn’t send you a pair of baby booties on your first birthday? There are lots of sock subscription services out there, but some are better than others. Check out reviews and ask around before joining—you could end up with much more or much less than you bargained for. You might want to avoid those that send multiple pairs of socks each month; instead, look for one that offers a sampler plan where subscribers get one pair per month (typically from several different designers) without worrying about getting four blue socks in a row.

There are several cool sock subscription services that are out there—the internet is your best resource for finding them.

Subscription boxes for cool socks

People can be pretty particular about their socks, so why not create a subscription box for them? Starting a sock of the month club is as easy as finding out what types of socks your customers like and starting to send them every month. If you want to be really cool, find different sock companies that are local or organic. This would be perfect for a business who wants to keep there eco-friendly image. Maybe your subscription could include socks along with other eco-friendly items like toothbrushes or gift cards for organic food stores in your area.

How many socks should you have?

In general, there’s no right or wrong number of socks for your collection. You can go for having a basic number of socks that you rotate or cycle through, or you can go sock-of-the-month if you like knowing exactly what’s in your sock drawer. There are advantages and disadvantages to both methods, but if you do have a certain amount of socks that you know about—and don’t exceed—you’ll be able to keep track of them more easily. In short: if your sock collection is self-regulated, congratulations! If might be time to give it some thought.

How to fold your socks in an unusual way

If you want your socks to last longer and look more organized, it may be time for an unconventional sock folding technique. After you get out of bed, throw all of your socks into a large hamper and take them out one by one as you wear them. This way, you’ll be certain that they’re not getting twisted up with each other, which can lead to stretched-out heels and holes in your favorite pairs. Also try folding your socks like a newspaper before throwing them in with all of your other laundry — who knew that such a simple move could make such a big difference?
