If you're one of those people who rolls your socks into a ball and uses the elastic to keep them together, you might want to change your ways.

Professional organizer Peter Walsh says you’re ruining your socks!

"It destroys the elastic very quickly, and then you end up with what I call quitters," Peter says.

(You know what he means by quitters -- those annoying socks that fall off your feet all day!)

Well, the good news is Peter has two alternative options -- one that he admits is a bit complicated (it involves four folds and a couple of tucks) and a simpler one that he swears by, which involves dismantling a shoe box (you’ll see what we mean!).

Watch the organizing pro demonstrate both in the video above!
