18 missing socks. Where do they just disappear to? I swear someone is eating them.

We keep a basket for the two ds and dh's socks. Mine and dd sit on our dressers. If we don't find the matches in about 6 months they get tossed.

What do you do with your socks that are missing matches?

I usually toss them. I bought mesh bags to washe them in and that helps.

I have a small basket in the laundry room where I keep them until they're reunited.  They pop up in the oddest places.

I have a few of the matches for those. 

For us it depends. If it's dh's socks I let them sit on the dresser...the match usually shows up or his shows eat the heels of the one of the pairs. With the kids I keep for a while. Sometime I mix mis-matched pairs and have strange pairs depending on how nice the socks are. I rarely wear socks and for some reason I always have pairs.
