{Decluttering} Odd socks

#24 Odd Socks

I have mentioned before that I buy the kids plain white socks.  No pretty patterns or extra colour’s on the heels, as if they lose a sock it doesn’t matter as it can be easily paired up with another plain white sock.  I don’t pair socks together, each of the kids has a basket on their wardrobe floor holds their socks.  More details HERE on kids wardrobe organisation.

Have you been holding onto your odd socks?  Find a use for them or throw them away!

Uses for odd socks:

  1. Dust rags (easily slip on hand and dust away)
  2. Clean Walls
  3. Place over can or drink bottles to prevent cold drinks from dripping
  4. Camera or ipod pocket
  5. Cut the toes out and use as leg warmers or knee pads
  6. Mittens to keep babies hands warm or to stop scratching their face or sucking their thumb at night
  7. Make a sock puppet
  8. Keep games pieces together
  9. Make a cat toy
  10. Make your own shoe freshener using sock as pouch.
