Over the past 2 years I've accumulated a lot of socks and have had trouble keeping them folded orderly. Every time I tried to pull one pair out, a whole bunch would follow. Or I'd have a hard time digging around looking for the other sock! But rather recently, a quick Google search found me the best (in my opinion) way to fold your socks neatly together! The link to the Youtube video is here, but I've also taken a few photos for a tutorial. I don't know why really, because the video is already perfect.
What I love about this method of folding socks is that you can still see the pattern and colour. You can use the method of long or short socks and hey can all be folded into almost the same size. This just makes it heaven to organise and see. They're like little parcels of joy and cuteness!!
Socks are all organised by colour because I'm a little freaky with keeping order and plus it looks really good! I can also see I have a shortage of green coloured socks, so I might have to fix that. (And now we have proof I'm a really bad sock hoarder...) Hope that might help you if you ever want to or somehow find the time to organise your sock collection too! It might be a whole days work but it's worth it and the result will make you feel so accomplished (or was that just me?)
