Damn, I’m almost out of socks. I’m pretty rough on socks and I usually plan it pretty well. I found out a few years ago that it is more economical to buy socks around November and December. And I always like the thick, wool-like type. Costco gets a good supply of them in and I’ll buy several packages, but once they are sold out all they have are those white ones with the gray toes or those thin, what I call, business socks.
I’m now running very low and there is five more months until November. I may have to pay a big price for underestimating my annual sock needs. The problem is that I now forget just how many I bought last year, so I don’t know how many pairs I will need for next year. But then I could count the worn out ones. I use them as shop rags and I haven’t been working in the shop much so they should still be there for the counting.
So when I write about buying new socks in December, please remind me to go get more before they run out again.
