PROS: You’ll never be embarrassed by mismatched socks again
CONS: Organizing your socks does take more time on laundry day
TAKEAWAY: Keeping organized (even if it’s just your socks) promotes productivity
In general, everyone knows at least one person who regularly turns up to work or school in mismatched socks. And while you may not know whether it’s because they refuse to sort laundry, they’re color blind or they simply think it looks great, pairing a red one with a blue one or stripes with spots is not something the average person feels particularly comfortable doing.
Making sure you have socks that match, of course, leads to a far more time consuming laundry day. You have to find the pairs and ball them up together. While storing your socks may have once meant throwing them into a sock drawer in one big collection and simply picking a random pair every day, you can actually apply a civil level of organization to your sock storage using one of these handy sock drawer organizers.
Staying well organized (even when it comes to your socks) can provide a boost to your productivity and also allows you to apply a level of cathartic cleansing to your life. This idea has seen a rise in popularity recently. Thanks to Marie Kondo and her hit Netflix show, the general public has fallen in love with the art of decluttering and organizing.
Below are three options for organizing your socks into easy-to-view and logical arrangements. Stay in complete control over your daily choice of socks and prevent any unwanted mismatched nightmares by getting that bulging sock drawer organized ASAP.
