Jan - organing challenge #1
I've decided to tackle some organing projects throughout this year. I thought it would be fun to issue a challenge for each.
#1. Match up every pair of socks in your house. Throw away strays.
I did this yesterday. I emptied EVERY sock in the house into the middle of the living room - mine plus 3 kids. I sorted until I'd matched up every pair then put them all away. I had a plastic grocery bag full of strays. Those went into the trash. Some of them were strays I'd saved for five years hoping the mate would show up.
My son said, "Mom, what if the mate shows up after the trash man comes?" I said "Then we'll throw it away, too!" OUT with the clutter!
