If you are a self proclaimed pack rat, or you have simply decided you have too much stuff and want less clutter, you need to start somewhere. If you have a bit of a hard time letting go of possessions, a great place to start is with your sock drawer. Below is a pic of my chaotic sock drawer.
I saw on Pinterest some tips on where to start with decluttering and a great one is to discard of all the socks who are missing partners. Now I am not sure if this is a global phenomenon or only happens to those who share laundry facilities or if every laundry machine known to mankind contains sock eating Gremlins. Last night I went into my socks and found these sad lads missing their partners.
While I was fishing out my single socks, I came upon some pairs I wasn’t too fond of, you know the ones you wear with boots and half way through a walk around the block the sock top is uncomfortably wrapped around the middle part of your foot or socks which are too thick. I put together a bag of socks to give away plus my singles socks which I may give away to a thrift shop (crafts maybe?).
I could hold onto my favorite single socks in hopes of finding their mate some day, but I want less stuff. I don’t want to have a box of broken items which need to be fixed or clothing which need repairs. Either it gets done now or it goes.
This is a brief blog, but I think if you do want to start down sizing with what you own, a great & painless place to start is getting rid of the socks (such as the sad singles) which serve no purpose to your feet anymore.
