No matter how careful I am, I still lose a sock here and there. I’ll hold on it for a little while (at least till laundry is done and the hamper is empty) and then see if it shows up. Sometimes its does and sometimes it doesn’t and I used to hold on to them forever. I would have a drawer full of mismatched socks! Just taking up space! Does that happen to you? Well no more. Unless you are going to wear two different socks to work, I say throw them out!!!! You can always buy new socks.
Its things like this that add up and make clutter happen. Soon you don’t have space for the stuff that really matters. So today THROW OUT SOCKS THAT DON’T HAVE A MATE!
Extra tip- If you want to keep your socks matched, then get a mesh garment bag and throw all the socks in there. Also you can tie the socks together at the top.
