#trashouttuesday / this is what 380 pair of socks looks like

the daily Starr trash out tuesday

I’ve been avoiding this project for a while, obviously.

I knew we had a lot of socks…

But I had no idea we had almost 400!!!

Yep. I gathered all the socks from around the house (except for Brian, because, well, he’s a minimalist living in the midst of hoarders).

Between 1 adult, 1 toddler and 2 girls – 380 pair.

I can’t even.

Kylie was the big winner.

And she’s the only one that had all her socks in one drawer. They were spilling over. She had 145 pair of socks.

Note – they don’t all fit her. Thus, this project being overdue. I’m sure there are still some baby socks mixed in that pile.

Next up, Kayla came in at 105.

Yes, those 3 little bins held over 100 socks!!!

Brock came in next with his little bin that held 68. Again, shocked. And there are definitely baby socks in his bin that need to go.

And I am SUPER PROUD to announce that I came in at the bottom, for once in my life.

I rounded up 62 pair of my own. Mine are in the red bag – I forgot to take a photo of them when I counted.

This doesn’t count what we have in the dirty clothes and that pesky bin of unmatched socks in the laundry room – doesn’t every family have one of those collections??

I’m running behind tonight – so I haven’t purged them. My goal for this week – to leave 30 socks a person. That’s way more than we need, but a big purge for sure.

The others can be donated immediately (or put away for them to grow into if they are too big).

How many socks does your family have?? Count them. I dare you.
