As I reached for a pair of socks this evening, I remembered that I hadn’t got anything to write about for today’s blog. And there it was right in front of me – the annoying sock drawer that I do nothing about whenever I open it because I’m usually in a rush.
I set the timer for 10 minutes and decided to sort it out, keeping in mind that I don’t have a ‘bigger’ drawer space for socks (yet!). For now, they will have to live in the small drawer.
My intention was to throw out odd socks if they weren’t newish, which is so unlike me as I tend to keep odd socks around the house in bags as I come across them. However, I can never find the odd sock bags when I need them, so today I’ve decided to stop doing that.
As well as 6 odd socks, I also found a glove and a belt! The belt just happened to fall into a number 6 position – it wasn’t intentional 😀.
… and 32 pairs of socks are going back into the small drawer.
A couple of questions for myself:
- Why do I need 32 pairs of socks? Some are in the wash as well so I’ve probably got more like 35-40.
- What happened to my Tuesday, Friday and Saturday socks 😂?
