hello,

I'm looking for ideas for where to keep odd socks. The other day I was googling and found something like this www.ecrater.com/p/1033574/personalized-embrodiery-basket-liner but they were nicer and were shown in a utility room.

Anyone any ideas where I can find them, or an idea of where you keep yours???

I keep mine on a shelf in the spare room. These boxes are similar.

They are nice boxes. What will you have written on the side?

Not sure, I'm thinking maybe 'odd socks' or maybe 'odds and sods' or maybe DH name as then I can put the other things he leaves in his pockets in there two...

Why would you keep odd sock? Just make a sock monkey!

Coz often they are really odd, I just drop them on the way to the washing machine :S

I throw away odd socks. It's a sure fire way of finding the other one.

I have a basket I keep by the machine, where i fold my laundry. My kids are capable of leaving socks all over the house, and rarely leave both socks in the same place. I occasionally count the socks for fun, but stop once I get over 100.

Who would want 100 sock puppets?

I encourage the girls to wear odd socks when they have wellies on. Trouble is that means the matching sock isn't in the basket when its partner turns up.

French - yes this is what I intend to do with this basket.

I just stick odd socks in the appropriate person's sock drawer and then fold the 2 together when they both arrive in there!

I have an odd sock sock in each person's drawer. All odd socks get put in it and then get paired up as and when I find its mate.

Odd socks in person's drawer works unless it goes in the wrong person's drawer smile. My dd has now thankfully reverted back to pink sockettes as the blue ones were often to be found in her brother's drawer.
