Don't throw away that single, mateless sock! It can be re-purposed in so many ways. Check out our creative list!One of the most annoying things about doing laundry is when a sock goes missing. You had a pair of socks when you started doing laundry. By the time you got done, one sock has mysteriously disappeared. What can you do with the sad, single, sock that returned home? More than you might expect!

What to do With a Single Sock

Socks Make Great Dusters
Everything needs dusting, eventually. It is amazing how fast you can go through paper towels while cleaning! That mateless sock can be repurposed as a duster.

Spray the cleaner on the table, pull the sock over your hand, and simply wipe away the dust. Wipe your sock covered hand over knick knacks and picture frames. Throw the sock into the wash when you are done cleaning, and save some money on paper towels.

Socks Make a Sock Bun
What’s a sock bun? It is a trendy way to make a clean, perfect, bun with your hair. Start by cutting the toe off the mateless sock. Next, start rolling up the sock from the toe to the top to make a “doughnut”.

Put your hair into a pony tail at the top of your head, and use a rubber band to hold it in place. Roll the end of the pony tail over the end of the sock and keep rolling until the bun is formed. The repurposed mateless sock adds bulk to your hair and helps you get an inexpensive, and classic, hair style.

Socks Can Repair Damaged Tights
Little girls are mean on tights! Before you know it, there is a hole in the knees or the toes. Adult knee socks that have lost their mates can be used to repair your daughter’s tights.

Kindergarteners will enjoy the colorful, mismatched, patterns that two very different mateless socks provide. Cut the damaged tights just above the knee. Use the adult mateless socks as replacement. This involves a minimal amount of sewing. Those mateless socks saved you from having to spend money on a new pair of tights!

Socks Protect Fragile Items
Are you going to be moving? Mateless socks can be repurposed as packing material. Pull a sock that has lost its mate over a glass or small vase. The sock provides protection from having the glass break by coming into contact with other objects that are being stored in the same box. Bubble wrap and packing material costs money. Repurposed socks are free!

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
