The Sock of the Month Club: Five Creative Ways to Fold Your Socks

 

Since it’s officially the month of socks now, it may be time to check out your sock drawer and see if anything needs some cleaning up. If you’re looking for something fun to do with your socks while they’re in the wash, try out one of these five creative ways to fold your socks, instead of just throwing them into the pile like always!

Rolling them


One way that is both fun and functional is rolling socks up. This will make them easier to stack, and can be done by rolling them in either direction. To start, place your socks together in a tight roll, then use one hand on top of the other to form a second layer. Finally, tuck in any loose bits at the end. The sock stacking advantage is that they'll take up less space than if they're laid flat. You can create this with mens ankle socks or mens crew socks too!
Another option is what we call the accordion fold. This folds your sock halfway over lengthwise so it resembles an accordion (hence its name). Next, fold it lengthwise again until it resembles a compact rectangle shape.

Bunching them


Bunching socks is a great way to save space in your dresser drawer. Stack them together and then fold them in half. Put this bundle into the sock drawer and then repeat with another bunch. The second bunch should have all colors that are not the same as the first one.

Many people may find it easier to group their socks by color, but if you want something more novel, try grouping according to type of fabric, or even pattern!

Folding them into a bag


A sock bag is a great way to keep socks organized and take up less space. The sock of the month club is a fun way to dress up your mornings by getting a new sock every day. The best sock subscription services offer monthly deliveries with cool socks for men, or funky socks for men, so that you always have stylish socks at hand. There are also socks clubs that send you a monthly package with different types of socks in an assortment so that they can be enjoyed over time. Another creative idea is to tie your favorite colorful pair around your neck as a cravat! If you're looking for fun gifts for men, consider colorful mens ankle socks or funky dress socks in crazy colors.

Folding them inside out


Folding your socks inside out is a surprisingly clever way to save space in your sock drawer and keep them from getting lost. Putting them on an over-the-door organizer also helps prevent wrinkling. And if you're really struggling for space, try wearing two pairs at a time!
1) Put your socks in a pile so that they are inside out. 2) Match up each pair so that you know which one is supposed to go on which foot. 3) Start with your first sock, and pull it over the second one that's still inside out. 4) Continue doing this until all of the toes are covered.

Get the most use out of your socks with these creative ways to fold them.
1. The Cat Bed - One foot goes into each end and then you fold them over each other like a little cat bed. It's great for small spaces and can also be used as an impromptu pillow on long car rides or planes. 2. The Accordion - Tuck your feet into one end and then fold it in half, accordion style, before tucking in the other foot on the opposite side. This is a great way to fit more socks into a drawer when they're not being worn and you don't want them taking up space in an organizer or dresser drawer (plus it looks super cool). 3.
