organizing socks

my sock drawer used to look like this.

i followed gretchen rubin‘s advice to dump out the whole drawer and only put back in what i need and love. it’s much harder to sort through a full drawer finding items to remove. this way, owning each pair of socks is a deliberate choice.

this simple sock strategy can be applied to many other categories of “things.”

for socks in particular though, it helps to cut down on the types of sock you own. for me the list is limited to:

  • Top Shop print socks (like this)
  • thick black ankle socks
  • thin black dress socks
  • athletic socks
  • thermal/wool winter socks
  • one pair of over-the-knee socks

within each category all of my socks are identical (with the exception of the Top Shop socks), making laundry easy and eliminating unnecessary choices.
