Sock of the Month Subscriptions: The Five Best Ways to Fold Your Socks

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

How are you supposed to know which ones go on top and which go on the bottom? That’s what sock subscription services like sock of the month are for—they take care of everything so you never have to worry about whether your socks are mixed up again. If you don’t want to wait each month to get new socks, there are plenty of other options that can help you keep your socks separated, so they’re easy to find when you need them—and these five methods can help you keep your socks as organized as possible without having to spend hours every week folding them just right.


The Basic Fold

1) Place one sock on top of another, then pull both socks down over your toes. 2) Take one side and fold it over the other side so that it lines up with your ankle. 3) Take the other side, then fold it over so that it lines up with your other ankle. 4) Pull both ends until they meet in front of you (you should be able to see each color). 5) Grab the two ends and hold them together firmly in front of you.


The Bandana Fold

Begin by folding your sock in half, toe-to-heel. Next, fold the bottom section up and over so that it is now on top. Now you have a bandana! You can also use this technique with knee socks and tube socks.


The Triangle Fold

One way that is perfect for socks with a short cuff and no heel is the triangle fold. Simply fold your sock so that it covers one-third of your foot, then fold over again so that it covers two-thirds. This leaves a small triangle at the top. It's not only useful for short cuffed socks, but also for ankle socks with elastic bands on them.


The Tube Fold

The tube is a quick and easy way to fold your socks. You can use it for any type of sock, including ankle, crew, or dress socks. Take one sock and roll it so that the opening faces outward and then take another sock and place it over the first one with its opening facing inward. Then simply fold them in half over each other (the now-inside sock should be on top).


The Basket Weave

1) Start with two flat socks. Hold them in one hand so they form a V shape, then take the top edge on your left side and flip it over onto itself. 2) Place this edge at the bottom point where you want it, but don't tuck it in just yet! Now take the other end (the right side) and do the same thing, but don't tuck that end in either!
