Mommy Hack: Standardize Your Socks and Eliminate the Pain of Sock-Matching On Laundry Day
Buy a bunch of the same exact sock type to prevent the pain of matching socks. (I had to save up my money for a couple months, but it was worth it). Do this for your kids as well. I’m sure that you’ve heard of this hack before, but I am here to personally endorse this. Thank you, Pinterest. If you only wear a small variety of sock types – for example, ankle socks, crew cut, black/white, etc., then get a tub for each type of sock. I have a tub in my closet for my (a) black work socks, (b) white socks, and (c) dress shoe socks. I never have to match my socks when doing laundry, and the only sorting that I have to do is separate the socks into the three bins. You can find great sock-bins in the Dollar Aisle at Target.
This is the greatest thing that I have done for myself lately. It’s changed my laundry life. Now, don’t get me wrong, I still use my Pack N Play as my laundry bin (see the post My Pack N Play Confessions for more on that), but this little mommy hack has helped a lot when it comes to sorting laundry for my daughter and me.
