Psychedelic Socks

Sock drawers are awesome. Especially at my house, because they often look like this:

Armadillo’s sock drawer

At one time, this drawer was organized with matching pairs of socks, folded neatly and sort of arranged by color family.

How long did that last?

Not long.

And not just because I don’t keep it organized.

And not just because it was that one time that it got organized.

And not just because mermaids don’t fold clothes.

These days, kids don’t wear matching socks.

In the 1980s, I wore matching socks that also matched what I was wearing. I still wear matching socks, when I wear them. It’s hard to mix up white socks.

For now,Β I’ve given up arranging Armadillo’s sock drawer. I know that the next time she picks out socks, they won’t match. (Thank you, Mockingbird, for teaching her that, by the way.)

One of these days, wearing matching socks will be back in fashion. There will be hope for that drawer then.Β Maybe.

What does your sock drawer look like? Do you or your kids wear mismatched socks? Share your favorite drawer organization story. πŸ˜‰

  1. Rainbow Dash socks! I want those πŸ˜›

    My socks are all folded together, but my underwear and thrown in the same drawer all willy-nilly. I like to chose my underwear based on my mood for the day, so if I fold them they just get all messed up anyways. (Plus, who has time to fold underwear? Psht)

      Aren’t those the cutest socks ever? LOL. Seriously, why bother folding underwear?

  3. Thank goodness you’ve told me it’s a trend! I just thought my daughter was trying to drive me mad by wearing mismatched socks. My own socks are all folded neatly in the drawer, but like yours, they’re all white so it doesn’t really matter – they match no matter what. Maybe I’ll jump on this trend by wearing one white Hanes sock and one white Fruit of the Loom sock. Watch out, world! I’m a rebel! πŸ™‚

      I hope it’s a trend. (Please, let it be a trend!) LOL.

      You’re scaring me, Juli. Wearing different brands of white socks at the same time? Rebel is right. πŸ˜‰

      (I’ve never done that before.)

  4. I few years ago I organized my sock drawer! The column of socks are color co-ordinated and neatly folded. I used clear plastic dividers to keep it that way. So far, so good. Not saying the rest of my drawers are anything close to that organized. πŸ™‚

      Those sock organizers are slick. Good for you for sticking with the setup. πŸ™‚ I try every once in a while, but it doesn’t last long. Can’t imagine why. LOL

  5. I mix-n-match my socks, but they’re all white (like yours) so it’s a kind of secret mix-n-matching!

  6. Since I am no longer in charge of any sock drawers but my own, my matching socks are folded together. I’m not sure I could make myself wear not matching socks. LOL But I never tried too hard to make it all match when the kids were home. I had a hard enough time keeping track of them. Socks weren’t high on the list. LOL

      LOL They aren’t high on my list either. πŸ™‚
