My sweet Michael spent Sunday afternoon washing and folding clothes for the family and adding to our perplexing and frustrating unmatched sock pile!
We created a basket for unmatched socks thinking after two or so loads it would all even out. Eventually the mate would turn up and you can re-create the match. However, the pile just seems to grow and the mates never turn up. Michael is threatening to throw all the singles away. I’m not ready to give up hope!
Do you have one of these piles at home? How do you handle the family socks? You always hear about domestically accomplished families pinning the socks together or washing them in a mesh bag so they don’t separate. But I don’t think we’re that advanced. Are you using any special techniques to keep the socks together? Would you trash these singles, hold out hope or wear them unmatched?
