Sometimes I almost scare myself with such clever ideas and wonder why I never thought of it before.
Case in point: I get tired of trying to contain the extension cord that is in constant use in our RV since there are very few places to plug in.
I've often used old socks or mismatched socks to cushion wine glasses and light bulbs during travel. But just because they are soft and stretchy doesn't mean their only purpose is to be used for packing breakable items for the road.
I had one odd ankle sock, which I don't like anyway because they seem to ride down in my shoes and irritate the back of my foot.
But it was perfect for corralling that long snaky extension cord.
I can't hardly wait to loose another sock.
