I have a big, clear zipper type baggie I keep in my bedroom. It's the home of unmatched socks or as my youngest daughter called them - "lonely socks".
Each and every time - well, not every time - I would wash whites I would haul the bag out and attempt to match up the lonely socks. At times the bag was very full. Other times I was successful and only a handful would remain. Most of the socks belong to my children.
I've done this for years. Until now! I'm starting a revolution! I will no longer match children's socks. Want to know why? Because apparently teenagers no longer care about their socks matching. It's become a fun thing to do - to wear mismatched socks. (Kids these days!) My husband and I are the only ones in the house concerned with matched socks.
The Revolution starts today! All teenager/tween socks will go into a community basket where they can freely choose the socks of their choice. Want to wear polka dot with the Christmas stripes? Go for it! The Valentine sock with a Halloween sock? Oh you're so daring!
The good news for me? I no longer have to be on a sock hunt! Freedom at last! A burden has been lifted.
Stop the madness! Join the Revolution - stop matching socks!
