Normally I prefer to wear flip-flops (or as my students call them, chunklas), or Birkenstocks, or no shoes at all. but in the winter and the rainy season I wear shoes and socks a lot. I find myself putting them on in a different order every day, and I wonder if this concerns anyone else?

Do you put them on sock sock, shoe shoe? Or sock shoe, sock shoe?

Sock shoe tie, sock shoe tie? Or sock shoe, sock shoe, tie tie?

I know this is not as earth shattering discussion material as some things we talk about here, but I really wonder which pattern is most popular

LOL- I put them on sock, sock, shoe, shoe, and I usually don't bother to tie and untie them.

At my age, when I get my foot up I do everything at one time: sock,shoe,tie; sock, shoe, tie.

I prefer to think of it as efficient expending of energy. The truth is, it's just too darned hard to get my foot up in the first place, let alone up and down, up and down, up and down, etc.

Sock, sock, shoe, shoe, and (since I have salomans with a weird little slide ties with little catches to hold them) slide, tuck, slide, tuck. Then, usually, stomp, stomp, suspicious frown, untuck, slide tighter, tuck, untuck, slide tighter, tuck.

I don't like shoes or socks. I only wear socks with dress shoes or dress boots. Then its sock, sock, shoe, shoe.

I have been having terrible back problems and the socks just about do me in! Once I get them on I wear them all day and to bed! Somebody told me you sleep better if you sleep with your sox on. It's true.

But then comes the morning and I have to take them off and start over.

...come on summer. Down with sox!

Sleeping in socks is like being in prison for me. I toss and turn and eventually get them kicked off. But I'm all about bringing on summer!

Naaaah, I'm not THAT anal. I'm just in the habit of about 90% of the time putting stuff on my left foot first.

Archie and Mike had this discussion on an episode of "All in the Family". Archie was for sock,sock shoe, shoe, and Mike was for sock shoe, sock, shoe.

This is hilarious.
Sock, shoe, sock, shoe, tie, tie

When I got my new knees, Ben had to do it all.........he put on my socks first (and they never "felt" right, but I didn't complain) then the shoes and tied if needed.

I remember how happy I was when I was able to put on my own shoes and tie them after my knee surgery. I was just thinking last week how normal I felt, walking, going down stairs, etc. I remember at one time thinking I would never walk normally again.

Sock, sock, boot, remove trailing boot-lace from vicinity of inquisitive and suddenly VERY fast child's mouth, boot. (And, like Ken, left before right.)

At the risk of being prurient - socks before or after pants/skirts? (US version of pants!)

If I'm wearing tall socks that go to my knee, I will sometimes put them on before I put on pants. If they are ankle socks, I will put them on after. And I almost always put on my shoes after my pants.

Sock, sock, step in something gooey the babies have spilled.... then new sock , shoe right away, new sock, shoe right away, thus avoiding further squishy oatmeal between the toes scenarios.

Since I started this thread I purposely do this different everyday. It's been quite a silly little adventure that gives me a giggle each morning! Very soon now it'll be nothing but flip-flops for me.

Try altering your routine, it's fun!

If only my life was so organized that I actually had a routine.
