Dh started a funny habit...

He has various styles of socks, including a few Nike ones that are "anatomical socks" so one is labeled "R" and fits the right foot, the other the left. He got tired of constantly searching for a matching pair (he does more laundry than I do) so the other day he bought a package of safety pins. Now whenever he takes off a pair to throw in the hamper he pins them together first so they don't get separated in the washing process. :-)

I thought it was funny and laughed but it does do the trick. Anyone else heard of this before?

Yeah. I did it with dd's socks a while back. She decided she only wanted to wear pink socks and they always have to match. They all look so similar but they have slight variations, like one pair will have two red hearts and one will have three, so I used to pin them together when she took them off.

My girls have never worn matching socks so I don't need to worry about that. They are in high school and still don't! Lol

Lol nope. I'm the type of person though who doesn't mind putting on odd socks in the morning rush

I know! I like fun, colorful socks and I'm always having trouble finding a matching pair too so he may end up converting me!

Lol, the older I get the less concerned I am about my socks matching everyday.

He said his mom used to do it when he was a kid. He has four siblings so I can definitely see wanting to end the sick matching madness!

I use a laundry bag for the kids socks- that way they are all together and matching them is faster.
