I bought new socks for my youngest two boys - socks are not something that can be handed down - it just doesn't work. Socks in our house barely last for one child.

But here is my question. I buy the "value pack" at walmart, because why spend big money on something that will be in the trash in six months.

The package of ten pairs of socks is resealable. The package even states that like it is an asset.

Usually I am all excited when a product comes with it's own storage container. I don't think I can store the socks in the resealable plastic bag that I bought them in.

Maybe that's just me.

I've already demonstrated my unstableness by taking my kids to school in my pjs :-)

Hah! That's too funny! Makes you wonder if the sock packaging was formerly used for something else and the redesign didn't quite get finished.

I just mentioned this to a friend today, and she had noticed this as well. Her theory is that they did it that way so people could open the package and feel them before buying, because it seems there are usually torn open sock packages or taped shut packages, otherwise. It's a thought!
