7 Uses for Single Socks!


A couple weeks back when we filmed our 10 Things to Toss Today video one of the items that proudly declared as toss-worthy was single socks – but we were wrong – there’s so much more to a single sock than meets the eye – so this week we’re dedicating an entire video to our love of single socks!


Sorry, eh?!

  1. I always buy 2-3 pairs of the same color/pattern in case I lose 1 sock or it gets worn out – specially those which get holes because of the toenail.

  2. Am I the only person on the planet who has never had just a single sock? I hope not. Anyway, I love watching your videos and I learn a lot! Also, when I was in college, my roommate and I would deliberately wear mismatched socks, and, naturally when anyone commented on this, we would tell them we had another pair at home just like them. Yeah, I know, puerile. Since I don’t have single socks, I can use an old pair that I don’t like any more to do the hand- and foot-softening thing, and I thank you for that idea!!

  3. I use my single socks for cleaning projects where I know I am going to be tossing the “rag” afterwards. Also, I go to my single sock basket if packing for a move and use the socks to “wrap” fragile glassware.
