What you normally would do is throw them away right? Wrong! You are throwing money down the drain when you throw socks away. I have been throwing away my socks ever since I can remember, it just makes sense.

After reading the article in the link below from carriegoff.hubpages.com I will now try and find some awesome projects to up-cycle my old socks into. I am sure there are far more projects out there but these 30 will get you on your way to sock recycling.

My favorite is the heating pads: Fill a sock with rice and tie the end. I feel so stupid that I never thought about using socks before. I often buy heat packs from Walgreens for about 10 bucks but this little sock hack will save me at least 30 bucks over the year.
