You all know what I am talking about. Those socks that go in to the wash as a pair and somehow come out alone. I hate folding socks. I hate matching them, I hate how they get stretched out at the top after so many times being rolled to keep them together.
I have learned many things from my mother, but this little trick is one of them. Use a safety pin and pin them together. (Don’t use the gold ones, they eventually leave a rusty mark) So simple, yet such a profound difference it makes! My mom keeps them in a jar, but i take it one step further and use a magnetic pin cushion. We keep one in each room. We take the pin out and put it on the cushion in the morning and take our socks off and pin them back together for the laundry at night.
