My sock drawers were a mess. A real mess. So, rather than trying to find all of the mis-matched socks and match them up, and rather than figuring out which socks had stretched out elastic that wouldn't stay on my leg, I just decided to chuck them all and start from scratch.
It's also part of my project.
The fact that I'm going on vacation, soon, was another impetus. I have a vacation packing strategy that includes an element of wardrobe refreshment... Whenever I go on a trip, I pack all of my oldest and rattiest underwear, tee shirts and socks. As we travel, each time that I'm done wearing them, I throw them in the trash. By the end of the trip, I've gotten rid of all the stuff that I needed to toss, and I've also made room in my bag for souvenirs!
Last weekend, we went to Costco, and I bought all of my new socks. White and black crew socks, white foot socks, black dress socks (two packages) and two packs of brown dress socks.
Sock replacement project complete!
