Finally...a solution to losing socks in the wash!

First, get frustrated and throw away all the socks that are missing their partner (check)
Then go get all new socks (check)
Realize that could get expensive if you keep losing socks (check)
Decide to put a snap on each sock so that when your LOs take them off they can snap them together before putting them in the hamper so they stay paired up (check)



Use different colored snaps for each child so they can easily help sort and put away socks and easily identify which socks are theirs (check)



Make cute little bows that also have snaps so the girls can coordinate their socks with their outfits (and cover the silly looking snap when wearing shorts or a dress) (CHECK!!)

I thought it was great...DH just laughed at me until he saw the ones with bows. Unfortunately I haven't figured out how to cover the snap on my boy's

What a great idea!

I could see little embroidery animal faces covering the boys' snaps... though I'm not sure how that would work... lol I'm sure you'll figure something out though!

OMG, that a great idea! Does the snaps bother their ankles at all? Wonder if it would with boots on?
