SOCKS!!!

SOCKS are the worst for me and probably any home on earth!!! I have tried everything from individual sock bags, rubber bands, labeling, same color, and these sock clips. The sock clips work if: your kids can open them and remember to put them on...they are great but like all "gadgets" nothing is perfect. Danielle Bean uses these sock cops and they look easier for little hands...I guess ask her what she thinks...

My best secret is my MOTHER IN LOVE...she comes about once a month and takes my big bag of white socks home and matches what she can. I also have a bag of just black socks...

For my colored socks I put them a hanging bag with a color in each slot. Like red in one bag, pink in one, blue, yellow/orange/tan/grey in one, something like that. I use this bag and it works if I remember to put the socks in there.

Like I said no gadget works perfect!!! So when I find a great sale on socks...I grab all I can get!!!

The most resent sale at OLD NAVY was great. Yesterday I had my MOTHER IN LOVE go by and pick up all they had!!! 60 sets of three-99cents a set!!! So I got 180 pairs of sock for $62 bucks!!! The kids love socks!!! They ask for them for Christmas and birthdays---they are so desperate!!! So when they saw the latest bundle they were siked!!! So far I got the three middle boys (11, 9, 7) getting each their own colored rim (navy for 11, grey for 9, and tan for 7)...we shall see how it goes!!!

The girls are still deciding what color will work for them and the 21 month old is thrilled to not have to stuff his fat feet into those baby socks that I keep thinking he fits into!!!

I totally know how you feel about socks! Thankfully mine prefer to wear sandals beginning in early April through October. I even pay them to match socks so they'll have a few pairs in their drawer.

My kids just wear mismatched socks. They like to! Not worth the energy to fight them over it. :-)

I like this deal!!! ...BUT I have to say...once it's warm enough, I say NO to socks and YES to sandals and barefeet! :)
I have ONE big drawer of socks and the rule is...find your own socks and try to make them match :)
Gotta love hoomeschooling...if we were out in the 'real world'-we could never live it down! ha ha

Great deal...I went to Old Navy today to buy flip-flops for all my girls and a couple of summer dresses for my 4 yr. old...I ended buying 6 pairs of flipflops and two dress..which fit both my 41/2 yr old and my 71/2 yr old (she's small for her age) and I forgot I had a $40 off coupon from using our Gapcard..we pay it off everymonth...I just use it to get the coupons...anyways...with the coupon my grand total was $1.08!!!! What a bargain!!

I consider the woman with over ten children at Sunday Mass where they have on matching to have truly arrived!
