SPRING CLEAN YOUR SOCK DRAWER
It’s that time of year again….rain showers, spring flowers and everything in between! Sock Shop wants to help you tackle your spring cleaning this year - de clutter your mind and your drawers. This means getting rid of our old, unloved stuff and focusing more on the things we own that bring us joy - out with the old and in with the new!
We knowwww we know, like many of you, our sock obsession has led many of us to a messy sock drawer. So, in the spirit of spring cleaning and organization, let’s check out some tips on how to organize your socks.
Collect all the socks from all areas of your house into one place. Dump out any socks still in the drawer and begin sorting through your pile.
First, make a big heap of all those single socks that have lost their partner). If you can't find the matching one, simply go ahead toss your singles out or even use them as rags for cleaning! You can also make your own dryer balls by putting a tennis ball inside a sock, or you can make homemade cat or dog toys. And of course, you can make sock puppets for the kids!
Now analyze the socks you do have and ask yourself how you feel about them….do you love them? Do you wear them? Do they bring you joy and comfort? Are they still in style? Maybe it’s time to get rid of the jingle bell socks you’ve had since you were a kid. If you answer “no” to any of those questions, then that pair of socks must also go!
Once you have a pile of socks that you love and are in good condition, make sure they’re folded neatly and then place them into your sock drawer in an organized fashion.
How to fold your socks?
No more rolling your socks into one another in an inside-out ball shape! We’re evolving to a neater-looking fold with the Sock Shop method:
- First, lay one sock flat on top of its mate.
- Next, start at the toes, and fold upward like you’re folding a letter. You can fold into thirds or fourths as needed depending on how long your socks are, but the goal is a nice, flat, square shape.
- Lastly, stand those squares of sock pairs up on end in your sock drawer, in a cute box or basket on your shelf, or wherever you want to store them. You can even take things to the next step with our "Sock Clips" (shameless plug) that keep your pairs together in the wash and in your sock drawer. The goal is neat rows where you can see a swatch of each pattern and easily remove a pair without messing up the others.
We love this method because it ends up making these crazy cool socks so much easier to see. It’s so refreshing to pull open a drawer to a neat set of great-looking designs, starting your day on the right foot when you get dressed in the morning!
