When the kids were young, one of them got grey socks, the other black. I knew *exactly* who to call if socks were left abandoned! We had two bins in the bedroom, "light" and "dark" and the kids knew by age 4 to sort their stuff. This had the added advantage that one kid's socks landed in each bin! I made sure that racks were "kid-height" so coats got hung and I started very early at giving them "kid-sized" responsibilities. Similarly, in the kitchen the shelves for plates/bowls/cups for everyday use are actually in a pantry closet near the kitchen table rather than over the counter where a) the kids couldn't reach and b) setting the table would potentially interfere with dinner prep.
I HATE that socks come in multicolor packs.

Because of the two reasons above, I seldom change my oil; my equipment is old and still functioning, my cars go to 250,000 miles, and I am not wasting money on oil changes. Run full synthetic oil, check it often, and keep the oil full and the engine will be sounds for years and years.
Space seems cool in the movies, but once you get out there, it is super boring. Now for a fascinating tiny ad:
