Tricks of the Trade: Socks

First ImageMy socks need to be organized? – You right now.

Yes! They most certainly do. – Me always.

While I loved a lot of what Marie Kondo had to say in her book, one thing that particularly stood out was the way in which she recommends organizing socks. She describes how people often bunch their socks by folding one onto the other in a large ball. Sounds like something you do? Then keep reading.

She goes on to describe her belief that socks enjoy being laid down flat, as opposed to being balled up tightly. Though I’m not totally sold on this belief, what I am one hundred percent certain about is that folding socks in a ball only serves to stretch the elastic. Why would you ever want to do that? Yep.

To avoid stretching the elastic and creating a mess of your sock drawer, all of you have to do is gently stack socks on top of one another. Just be sure that pairs are matched together and you’re good to go!
