If you have more than one child of the same sex, use small dots of different colors of fabric paint on the bottom of their socks. Each child gets their own color. There will be no wondering who owns which socks. This also works on toothbrushes, cups, mittens, underwear, etc.

My mother-in-law raised 6 kids. The first 4 (all boys) were fairly close in age. She bought socks in various colors, one boy wore only white socks, the next wore socks of a different color or design and so on. I don't know if this idea will work for everyone, but it sure worked for her family. (06/21/2006)
