You read it right, 30 uses for old socks! Well, how do I begin. Socks are one of the most thrown away clothing items a human owns. They get ripped, torn, moth bitten, you name it, it happens to socks!

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 out of the 30 is #13 Heat Pack: 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 Walgreen’s for about 10 bucks but this little sock hack will save me at least 30 bucks over the year.

Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food

Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.

Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.

Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.

How To Make Pemmican: The Original Survival Food - If you're living through a disaster where you're on your feet a lot and don't have time to cook, one of the best foods you can eat is pemmican. It's packed full of fat and protein and can give you lots of steady energy throughout the day.

People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.

These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call "survival skills" now.
