My husband and I have what we affectionately call the communal sock drawer.
That’s right, folks. We share socks! Not all socks, just regular white, everyday athletic socks. We do have our own black, navy, tan, and dress socks.
We started sharing socks several years ago when I realized that men’s socks were significantly cheaper and tended to hold up better than women’s socks. Our feet are close enough in size to make this work.
By buying a large quantity of men’s socks, we’re able to save a little money. In addition, when you buy all the same brand and color, you don’t have to throw away a whole pair of socks when one sock gets a hole in it.
We’ve also found that the communal sock drawer saves a lot of time when it comes to laundry sorting. They’re our socks, not hers and his!
