Why am I the only person in my house that’s bothered by this?

And how can I get my husband to throw them away??

Well in our house I tell DH that if he sees a hole in socks, or if they are no good…to toss them in the garbage instead of the laundry, sounds easy right? He can never remember to do that, so I end up washing them and then forgetting about them and then putting them away just so we can have the conversation again that he really should get rid of them! Afterall, he wears them, not me! Oh well, at least he remembers to put his laundry in the laundry instead of just anywhere! Oh, and if he does get rid of them, he forgets to tell me to go and buy new socks until one day I here him ask…where are my socks!

One way to cure that is to darn the sock. It makes it really uncomfortable and then they finally throw it away themselves because they don’t like the feel of it. They must not have enough feeling in their foot because if I have a toe sticking thru a hole it drives me crazy. One Christmas, for a white elephant in YW, I took all the single socks and sewed them together as a Christmas garland. No one wanted to trade for them (didn’t realize money in them) so the person that got it had to keep them. In the end she got $5! Great way to get rid of them.

I don’t know why men can’t find the trash can instead of the laundry hamper when it comes to worn out socks, underwear, t-shirts, whatever. On the other hand, why can’t my husband find his way to the laundry room, period? I gave up that battle a long time ago. I just go through his closet and drawers every once in a while and clean it out. When he asks where his favorite old “whatever is”, I just say “I have no idea”. :)

That would bug me too. When you’re folding socks next time, just throw that one (and any others with holes) in the trash.

I always toss socks with holes in them when I fold laundry. Anytime I see a hole, the sock goes in the trash. My husband noticed one day, when I told our daughter to put them in the garbage. He said, “you throw my holey socks away?” I told him I did, and then kept an inventory of how many he has, and buy more when he gets low. He thought his socks just disappeared in the wash. They did. He just didn’t know how.
