How much is too much?

I like to think I have a healthy relationship with laundry. You see, being organized and slightly neurotic has it's perks. I actually enjoy the laundry process. Yes, y'all I am a strange one. Don't be a hater!

For me I see a challenge, which is to try and keep the laundry baskets empty. The only real problem I have with the laundry is that I don't enjoy putting it away. It will sit all nice and folded awaiting it's journey back into the closets and dressers. The piles have gotten so high at times that my boy's dressers have run out of underwear and socks. Now that will never be the case with my husband. I could go over a month without putting his socks away and there would still be enough for another month's wear. He has the largest reserve of dress socks that I have ever seen in my life. Today I decided to count exactly how many pairs of socks he owns and came up with fifty-one and a half pairs. Seriously. Keep in mind that this does not include athletic socks in which those have their own smaller drawer.

Do you think it's time for a sock intervention?

  1. Wow, i'd be afraid to show you my laundry piles...

    I have them washed and cleaned, but just in multiple baskets. Who has time for folding and putting away clothes anyways? Really, there is always more blogging to do right?

    Yes, I think you need a sock intervention. 51 pairs? wow.
