Every time I do laundry, no matter how vigilant I am about matching up socks before loading up my washer, I always end up with at least one or more more stragglers – lone socks that have lost their partners during the short trip from clothes hamper to dryer.
In an effort to match up these sad singles, I dedicated a decorative basket to temporarily house the loners. Each week (or month) I go through the basket and reunite the pair.
Knowing that the single socks have a destination and will eventually meet their partner, I never get annoyed anymore when I don’t match them all up each load!
That’s one way I cut down on the waste my home generates, but what are some of your tips for reducing your household waste or even just to make doing laundry easier?
