Buck Stretcher -- Match your socks

Buy all your children’s socks in one color and style so that if one sock from a pair wears out or gets lost, you can just match it up with another.

Don’t limit this to your children’s socks — you can do the same thing.

If all of your work socks are the same color and style and all of your other socks are another color and style, not only will it make finding a mate easier when one wears out, sorting laundry is a lot easier, too.
