Always buy mens and boys' socks in quantities of a dozen or more of matching pairs. This reduces the need to pair-up the socks before washing and greatly reduces the length of time playing the sock matching game.
Great tip! As an old bachelor I learned years ago to buy a dozen or two each white cotton tube socks and black cotton socks. You don't have to match them up and you won't ruin the elastic by rolling them in pairs.
Cotton socks may not be fashionable, and this may have concerned me forty years ago. Now I'm much more into comfort, and you can't beat cotton socks for comfort. White for boots, black for shoes... only two kinds of socks in the house. Handy. (10/14/2004)
