So I haven't done my laundry for ages as things have been getting on top of me a bit at uni - it had developed into quite a mountain in my room! I finally had some help to do it, and when I was putting it all away, I counted that I had just out back over 40 pairs of socks into my wardrobe. Is this too many to have at uni?!

I had about 15 pairs of socks at uni so that I didn't have to do laundry that often. 40 pairs seem kind of excessive though...

Personally I think any one person should have a maximum of 2 weeks worth of socks, even then that's a lot

No, but as you are an adult you can have as many as you like.

In second year I got tired of doing laundry all the time so I just kept buying socks. I must have around 30 pairs now

40 is quite a lot! Maybe go through them and take out the ones that are worn/holey to have a more manageable amount!

It is excessive. I think I have around 15-20, and I plan on chucking some out as they're old or have holes. Maybe see if you can throw away some?

I am not in Uni or anything but... Who cares how many pairs of socks you have? You can have 99 pairs of socks and I would think of you no different, anyone who would think of someone negatively based on the amount of socks they own, needs help.

In total, about 20 pairs, though about 5 pairs of those are still in their wrapping as they are for backup just in case the others wear through

And this is at home, I'm no longer at university

40 pairs are 80 socks (hopefully). that's almost 81 socks. You, mad lad.
