Spring clean your sock drawer
Posted 1st April 2016 by SockShop
A spring clean can tackle many aspects of your life, from clearing out the garage to finally re-organising your kitchen cupboards.
Now’s the perfect to time to see what’s staying and what’s going…1. At the end of their life
The first step is to find socks that are undoubtedly at the end of their lives. These are the ones with big holes in that are no longer their original colour, or are all alone in the hope their partner will one day turn up.
Once you’ve got rid of all these, you’ll be left with a clearer idea of what you’ve actually got in your sock arsenal.
2. Do you wear them?
Now take a look at these pairs and ask yourself, when was the last time you wore them? If you hesitate for a second or the answer is more than a fortnight, it’s time to put them away or throw them out.
As spring and summer approach, it’s time to put away the warm winter socks and bring in something a bit more seasonal. This means any Christmas patterns (snowflakes included) need to be stored away until at least after Halloween.
It might be that you’ve not given your sock drawer a spring clean for some years and even the best pairs are starting to look a little, well, unfashionable.
Once you’ve got rid of the old and brought in the new, it’s time to organise your socks so you don’t have to do another spring clean for some time.
