Gosselin's sock strife

Gosselin's sock strife
Celebrity TV mum Kate Gosselin has a slightly harder time than most when it comes to shopping for her kids.

The mother of eight - twins and sextuplets - finds keeping hold of socks the most challenging thing, however.

Lonely single-coloured socks have got her goat so much that she has banned anything other than plain white socks from her house, she claims in her latest blog.

The Dancing with the Stars TV celebrity has even taken the drastic action of donating all of the coloured socks to charity.

She's so upset about losing 16 socks a day that she has come up with a plan to avoid the socks finding their way to the "sock graveyard".

"But I tell you, I have a well-oiled sock process in place! In fact, I'd even argue that I have a sock sickness," she said.

"When the kids arrive home, part of their routine (as they call it) includes placing their socks in a sock bag that hangs on the laundry room door."

Maybe if she does find all those smelly old socks one day we might see her on another reality TV show like I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of

Here, using them to ward off those pesky mosquitoes, after Dutch scientists recently found an unusual use for smelly footwear.
