I am not a morning person. I am grumpy, tired, I can’t think, I don’t want to talk, and I just want my coffee. I also hate doing laundry. My laundry schedule is as follows, when I run out of underwear, I do my laundry.
These two stressors always meet right after I step out of the shower. Seeing as I never waste the time to match the socks after I pull them out of the dryer, my sock closet looks like the intestines of a polar bear who was sponsored by Hanes. As I rummage through this mess I begin to mumble “And I thought they smelled bad… On the outside.” In my desperate search for two socks that match, my tension level rises until I finally give up and just pick out two that look close enough.
Then, finally I did it. I was fed up and I took a stand. I emptied my sock drawer into the garbage and ran over to Target. I spent 20 bucks on a few packs of matching socks.
There are two benefits to buying new socks. First of all, your feet are two things you use every day, they’re worth the 20 bucks. New socks feel great and you should never fret to spend money on things you use every day! – the saying, spend money on things that come between you and the ground comes to mind.
Second, I have saved time and stress by always being able to just grab two socks and know they match. There are few places in life where such a paltry sum can create such comfort and joy.
So go ahead and splurge on yourself, throw away your socks and buy new ones!
