Kids and Socks – Amazing Parenting Hack

Socks are so frustrating!

There are so many reasons I love sandals weather, but the biggest is the lack of socks. In the laundry, on the floor, on the couch, stuffed in shoes, on the steps, and missing their pair! It’s possible that smelly, nasty, single socks are the worst thing about having this many sweaty boys in my house. It drives my husband even more batty than it does me.

Socks ruin laundry time!

I don’t do most of the laundry in our house, we make our kids do it. And so they hate single socks, too! And thus was born our very best laundry/parenting hack ever. Check it out! Instructions included. The Single Sock Solution (no crafting invovled).

  1. Okay, we solved this problem by moving to Florida where it is sandal weather all year round but before we left we learned a trick from friends. Their son just wears mismatched socks. My daughter loved this idea so she just stopped matching her socks when she did laundry (turns out kids don’t like matching socks either). It also meant she could keep wearing the lone matchless ones!

    1. I love this Melissa! Both solutions are winners. I hope Florida is treating your family really well! Please know how much you are missed in your last city.
