Do You Have a Bin For Lonely Socks?

My mother always kept a basket above the dryer to store socks that are missing their matches until they're found. So I do the same — I cannot for the life of me keep a pair of socks together. I was reading Centsational Girl's post on her laundry room makeover, and noticed she has a basket liner that reads "Lonely Socks," how cute is that? I guess I'm not alone in this laundry dilemma. Do you have a dedicated bin for single socks?

I just throw mine back in the drawer. I Have been meaning to go through and see if any match and throw out the rest. My drawer is starting to overflow :)

My mom did the do I as well. Once in a while I try to match them up. At downtown Disney there is a whole store that sells ONLY mismatched those od you who have been wearing them all along are trendsetters!

I used to have a bin for lonely socks, but I have now made it a point to always wear mismatched socks so I just throw them all in together. My boss thinks it's weird that my socks never match, so much so that she bought me a whole easter basket full of socks for easter. I find it even stranger that every morning she comes up and asks to see my socks. I think I might one day have to wear matching ones just to trip her up.

We had a big bag of them when I was a kid. Every once in a while, my mom would dump them out on the floor and have me and my sisters try to match them up and put them away. Fairly effective, I'd say! Since I live alone, I just toss them back in the sock drawer and hope for the best.

I do! A little green wicker basket with a lining that sits atop the drawers that contain my socks and undergarments. I think I lose socks the most in the Winter, when I go to bed with my feet covered but end up kicking them off in my sleep.

I have a big basket full of lonely socks... but I don't think I've ever reunited a pair :) I wear mismatched socks half the time anyway so I just have to reach in and find two that are similar in size.
