    When I travel, here's an old trick I use.

    I pick out all the oldest underwear, socks, and clothing I have, when packing for a trip. As I travel, rather than save old laundry, I throw it out. Just use it, one last time, and chuck it. This lightens the load, as the trip wears on, and eliminates having to carry home and wash laundry, after the trip.

    And, over a period of time, it eliminates mismatched and worn socks.

    Every few years, I cull all of the sweat socks and re-stock with new, fresh, identical ones

    Sorting similar socks is one of my pet peeves

    I stopped worrying about matched socks a long time ago.

    I like socks. Without them, we'd put our feet straight into shoes, and I think that would be uncomfortable.

    I recently found out that most people who live in Boston, Massachusetts don't worry at all about mismatched socks because all pairs of their socks are red as a bull.:)

    Socks are forever looking to escape, I mean, wouldn't you?
    Stuck on someone's smelly foot
    all day.

    Sometimes the odd one will stick themselves to the inside of the dryer to avoid detection while you're doing the laundry and then make a break for it while you're not looking. Of course most are ill equiped for life in the wild and many don't make it, hence all the carnage on the side of the roads.

    Except for riding motorcycle it's strictly shorts and sandals for me 99% of the time. I gave up the repression of long pants and socks when I retired. My feet don't like socks and socks don't like my feet, so that works out well.
