  • We have about 30 pairs of socks each A small basket of unmatched socks. If I don't find the matches in about a week then I throw them away.

  • I think 15-20 pairs of socks per person is plenty...but try telling my DH that! Lord knows how many pairs of socks that man has...but I also live in the south and pretty much wear flip flops all year long so....

  • I have NO clue!
    My husband must have at least 50 altogether. Mostly black socks that he has to wear for work.
    My daughter's have collected, kept, and lost socks over the years, so I couldn't even hazard a guess at how many pairs they are at now. When I wash them, I just put them in their pile...I don't even match them up anymore.
    I keep 6 pair of socks here for my granddaughter. She's just a baby, turned 20 months old today :) but has her own room here for when she spends the weekends with us and I like to have some spare clothes on hand for her.
    I probably have about 20 pairs in different styles, colors, and what-not, but I rarely wear them, even in the winter, because I prefer to be barefoot or only wear my leather flip-flops.

  • about 2 dozen person. I got tired of trying to mate the socks, so I started safety pinning each pair together each time someone took off their socks.
