Does your washer eat socks??

Updated: Feb 20, 2021

I learned these 3 Life Hacks a little late in life!

If I had learned them earlier I would have taught my kids to do this. Personally I hate matching socks out of the laundry, and it seems there is ALWAYS one missing - aarrgg!!

So, here you have my favorite 3 things I learned lately that are helping save my sanity - lol

1. Safety pin socks together before you wash them!

Wish I had known this YEARS ago! Oh my goodness, it’s so easy! I keep safety pins in a little container by my bedside and when I take the socks off I pin them together. OR, most of the time I’m putting a new pair on and just take the pin from them and put it in the ones that need washed! All socks are pinned together and there is NEVER a lost sock in the wash! AND, I don’t have to match socks from the dryer to put away! LOVE IT – thank you Donna S – my past neighbor and angel!!

2. Living in a remote location (Alaska - 50 miles from the nearest town - by BOAT or Float Plane only) caused me to look at any way I could to preserve fresh greens – this one works for about 3 weeks – yeah!! Keep spinach longer by storing it in a lettuce crisper or the plastic tubs greens come in. Put paper towels in the bottom and top and flip the container every couple days. It stays much better than when left in the plastic bag.

3. This one trips me up STILL!! Have you ever saved a file and later decided to rename it because it made more sense to you under a different name?? Well... if you have used the original file in any type of program, DON’T rename it! The computer (and you) won’t know where to look for it – lol! Thanks Chancy for the reminder!! 😊

OK, There you have it! I'd love to know a life hack or two you have learned before it's to late!!

Thanks for dropping in!
