The Cozy Red Cottage: organizing missing sock

organizing missing sock

I have a cute lost sock board but lets be honest we have way more then 4 missing socks in our house.  I normally put all of our extra socks in a basket that I could look through when I had some time.  However that rarely happens so most mornings we have to dig through the basket and hope to find a match.  I finally came up with a solution that works for us.  First I had to dump my basket and sort all of the socks by person.  The matches were put away and the ones waiting for a match were separated into individual bags (one for each person).
 The four bags are kept in our basket.  As I fold clothes I match up the socks from the dryer and any extra are tossed into the correct bag.  Every couple of days I sort through each bag (most of the time there are only 3-5 socks per bag!).  This makes finding a match so much quicker and in the morning when we are in a rush its a lot easier to pull out 1 little bag to look through instead of a whole basket.
