Lost socks are an ongoing problem at our house. Baby socks washed in a front-loading washer have only compounded the problem. My husband and I started putting all our miss-matched socks in a shoe box in the laundry room. The problem was, we never thought to look there when were folding clothes, so what started out as a holding spot for stray socks was starting to overflow, but had never really reunited anythings. So to keep the socks in place where they were easily visible I hung some twine along the wall above our washer and drier and used clothes pins to display the socks. A simple solution to a frustrating problem!
