Finding all of the socks that you want to clean out can be quite challenging. Look under the bed and in all of the drawers or on the closet floor to find these socks. You might even find some of these socks still inside of various shoes like sneakers or work-boots. Remember to keep putting them in the piles as you look around the house for all of these socks.
Take out all of the old socks from each of your family members drawers and lay them out on the floor. Make two separate categories or piles based on those socks that are not matching and other socks that are just filled with holes and are not worth keeping. Keep these piles separate so that it helps you organise everything.
The pile with socks that has holes can still have many uses. You can use these socks for dusting, checking the oil in a car or many other cleaning purposes. These socks can also be used to make puppets or other crafts for kids. Always remember to keep a few of these socks for other purposes. You can store these socks in a large black plastic bag somewhere in the garage or any place that is not taking up valuable space in the house.
The pile of socks that do not match with each other can be donated to a local charity as someone that might be needy really won’t care if his or her socks match. If you live in a cold climate where it snows during the winter, many homeless individuals could use these socks to keep their feet warm during the harsh winter months. These types of socks are good to give away as someone might find some use for them.
If you are not comfortable with donating these socks then you can always throw them out. By doing so, it will reduce the amount of space they are taking up and keep all the other matching socks organised. Put all of the old socks together and place them in a large garbage bag to toss out.
