FFS Friday - Odd socks

So I've been thinking a lot about this one lately and I have to ask.

Why do we bother so much about wearing matching socks?

Really, what's the big deal? Who cares if socks match or not?

How often do people even see our socks? And couldn't non matching socks be a cool fashion statement?

I've spent a lot of time sorting socks recently, last week Chai used 14 pairs of socks. No idea how he managed that but he did. I think it's possibly caused by him throwing them all over the house/car etc instead of putting them in the wash. Or by him rejected several pairs of socks because they annoy him before he finally settles on an acceptable pair. 

A while ago the MIL gave me five pairs of identical grey socks. At the time I thought it was ridiculous but I've now realised it was genius. I don't have to worry about matching up pairs cause they're all the same. Brilliant!

I'm going to do an experiment. For the next four weeks I'm not going to wear matching socks and see what happens. I bet no-one will even notice.

Imagine all the time we'd save not having to pair up socks. I reckon it'd give me at least an extra hour a week. I can do a lot in an hour. 

I'm sure I'm onto something here.


  1. My boys never wear matching socks! Neither do I! I bought plain socks for evrryone so I dont have to muck about when im folding! Viva la difference! Lol

    1. It's such a brilliant idea. I'm going to do that from now on, it saves so much time.
