Large Family Problems - the sock basket

Oh the sock basket. 

I used to be so embarrassed by this basket. But now it's just a way of life. 

I want to be that mom that matches all the socks and puts them neatly in their drawers. 

Well let's be honest I'm just not, anymore. 

When you have 7 pairs of feet to have socks for everyday. That makes for a lot of socks. 

Way to overwhelming when just getting the rest of the clothes folded and set into baskets for everyone to put away. I just throw them all in a basket and they can fend for themselves. 

Plus when I can hardly ever get a matching pair in the washer at the same time. One is usually stuck in a pant leg or under a bed or even behind the bathroom door. Still sitting there all alone from last nights shower. 

Now if they are lucky and I see a pair together I will stick them together and put them in that child's pile. But other then that they are in the "sock basket". 

I will put my dear hubby's together for him. This is one thing he has asked for from me. He just doesn't have time in the morning to spend 5 minutes looking through the basket. Since he is such an amazing husband and he goes to work all day, I suppose this small request I will do with a sweet smile. 

So how does your family deal with the dreaded socks?

God Bless,

  1. We have a sock basket, too. :)

    And I, too, do my best to find and match my husband's socks as a show of love for him.

    I match socks as often as I possibly can, but again, the kids mostly have to search through the basket for what they need.


Have a Blessed day.
