The best way to get the most from your sock subscription of the month club is by keeping your socks organized and folded, so you know where they are and can use them at a moment’s notice. Here are 5 great ways to fold your socks to keep them organized in your sock drawer or sock bag!

1) Get some fresh air


Keeping your feet in good shape is a must, but so is giving your whole body some fresh air. Spend at least ten minutes a day outside and you'll be amazed what a difference it can make. Take the time to breathe in deeply, stretch out your arms and legs, and just stand still for a few minutes. It's easy to get wrapped up in work or other obligations that we forget how important it is to take care of our well-being. But as soon as you step outside and feel that sense of relief wash over you, you'll know it was worth it!

2) The Juxtaposition Method


The Juxtaposition Method is a great way to fold socks. It's also a great way to present them as gifts for men. The technique is simple: First, you place your socks next to each other in two stacks that are parallel and touching, then you flip one stack over so it covers the other stack. You can now see all the colors of your two stacks at once, which creates an eye-catching display. If you want, you can use this method with any kind of sock – dress socks, crew socks or crazy color dress socks. This will help keep your feet warm too!

3) The Rushing Method


The Rushing Method is all about folding your socks, not in half, but into thirds. This method is perfect for mens dress socks and ankle socks. If you're looking for a fast way to fold your socks that doesn't take up any extra space in your drawer or closet, this is definitely it!
1) Holding the sock with one hand at the bottom, pull the top of the sock so that it's tight.
2) Bring both hands together on top of your first hand, then hold them down with one hand.
3) Keeping both hands together, twist them back and forth so that you end up with a nice rectangle shape with pleats.

4) The Honeycomb Method


The Honeycomb Method is great for organizing your sock drawer in a way that makes sense and is easy to find what you are looking for. It all starts with folding your socks into 3 piles based on their height and then sorting them accordingly. First, fold your socks by heel height (shortest on the bottom, tallest on top). Next, sort those stacks into two piles based on color (mixing like colors). Finally, rotate one of those stacks and place it back in the drawer (the rotated stack should be closest to you when facing the drawer). This method allows you to see every color in your sock drawer at once without having to dig through any other pile and helps you locate matching pairs quickly.

5) The Spiral Method


This method is one of my favorites as it doesn't require any fancy skill, just a few minutes and you're done. The spiral method is how you'd fold socks if they came in a package or were being shipped in bulk. You start by folding one sock in half so that both sides are touching, then you fold the other sock over that, making sure it's aligned with the first sock. Next, take a third sock and put it on top so that there is equal length on either side before moving on to the next step. Finally, keep going back and forth until all your socks have been folded into spirals - this should be about six pairs of socks.
