sock of the month Subscriptions: The 5 Best Ways to Fold Your Socks

sock of the month subscriptions are one of the latest crazes to hit the market, and for good reason. Who doesn’t love getting socks in the mail? (Answer: no one!) If you’re thinking about starting your own sock subscription, or if you already have one, you’re going to want to check out these five unique ways to fold your socks so they don’t fall into their slots with their unique labels clearly visible and ready to expose your little secret.

1) Why you should fold your socks

When it comes to socks, most people will either shove them in a drawer or ball them up. But, have you ever tried folding your socks? It may sound strange, but there are actually several ways that you can fold your socks that makes them easier to manage and helps them last longer. When you roll up or bunch up a pair of socks, they naturally create creases that eventually turn into holes. For nearly every sock I wear out, I can usually trace it back to not properly folding my pants before throwing them in my drawer—and who among us has time for ironing clothes anymore? If you want your favorite pairs of cotton or woolen socks to last as long as possible, give some thought into how you’re storing them at home.

2) Getting Started – How to fold them

If you want something a little different than your usual sock drawers, then it’s time to give these new styles a try. After all, who doesn’t like getting mail? All right, so some people don’t, but that’s beside the point. If you happen to fall into that camp and don’t like being mailed things, then opt for one of these other styles below!

3) Advanced sock folding methods

Have you ever seen those ads for subscription boxes that contain socks? Chances are they’re made by a sock-of-the-month club. It is exactly what it sounds like—each month, you receive a unique pair of socks from an unknown brand. These subscription boxes have turned sock folding into a sort of an art form because there are so many different ways to fold your socks. This guide will show you five unique ways that you can fold your socks and give them as gifts! You’ll find interesting ideas for men, women, children and even family pets!

4) The ultimate method

While we won’t divulge all our sock-folding secrets, we will say that there’s one method that makes our socks look their very best. (Bonus: It also happens to be incredibly easy.) Here’s how it works. First, use your foot as a guide—wiggle toes on both sides of your folded socks so they form little Vs. Then, fold your socks in half by taking them off your feet and folding them over like an envelope. Finally, put both feet back in and repeat step 1 until you have perfectly folded socks! You can even start with clean, unfolded socks for maximum effect.

5) What should you look for in a sock subscription?

Make sure you get what you need. Sometimes your sock needs are quite specific, so make sure you pay attention to how many pairs you get each month and that your tastes in sock colour are reflected. So if bright colours aren’t your thing, steer clear of a subscription that sends them every month.
