Hate matching up sock pairs while folding laundry? One way to save you time is to have all socks of the exact same color and style.
Every six months, throw away all of your white sports socks and replace them with six pair of new, identical white sports socks. Be sure to alternate the style slightly between purges so if an old sock accidentally doesn’t get purged, you can identify it when it tries to sneak back in to your drawer. All of your socks will have the same amount of wear, they all will match, and they will save you time during folding.
If your spouse or partner has similarly sized feet, try having 12 pair of the same socks. If you’re a man who works in an office, do the same with black and brown dress socks. Three styles are still faster to sort than 18 different styles. My husband and I have subscribed to this process for more than seven years and love the simplicity it brings to our laundry days.
