Missing Socks

Dear Kathi,

I am constantly trying to find the mates to my socks. Where do they go and how can I stop this from happening?

The missing sock syndrome is one of my favorite topics. It happens to all of us.

Where do they go? It seems that they don’t really leave our homes, they just take mini road-trips on their own.
To solve this dilemma, keep an old pillowcase or drawstring bag in your laundry area. When a lone sock appears, toss it into the bag and don’t worry about it. After a month or two, empty this bag onto your bed. Most of your missing socks will be miraculously reunited with their mates.
