Companion Socks

One of the best pieces of advice I received as I was preparing to serve a mission was to invest in a whole bunch of the exact same socks. That way, I would never have to worry about finding matches and I could focus my efforts on more important things. 

Actually, I didn't spend much time ever thinking about my clothes as a missionary. For example: I had exactly seven ties. I soon settled into the habit of matching each tie with a day of the week. That worked well until one concerned investigator wondered if I only could afford one tie. Since we had a once a week standing appointment with her, she only ever saw me in my Wednesday tie. (After that particular visit, I started mixing up my ties a bit more.)
