(and no, he does not purchase cheap work boots,) I guess I should be happy the half dozen boxes of boots the store took back for being defective (boots just cannot handle the rigging in the hot temperatures, nobody makes a boot that can and believe me, he has tried every kind!), are not out there.
However, I do have a handle on the tools he does have - well except for the 3 chests he takes to work with him, so I know what I can buy him. (We can write them off, so we always ask for gift cards for Home Depot or Crappy Tire for him)
I'm not sure what all the cans of stuff are or if they can all go in the same box - but they're in there!
At least I can walk around in there now, but methinks we need a 26' truck just to move his crap!

*sigh* Nascar collectibles......

I feel your pain. For years Mike decided his calling in life was to collect sport cards...any sport. Boxes..boxes..boxes of sport cards. Closets full. An entire wall in our game room...full.

Then one day, the light went out and he decided he didn't want to play that game anymore. With a gentle push from me, we hauled them all to an auction. I kid you not, we stacked them in the dressing room of my 3 horse, slant load trailer. There were so many that we had to put them in the back as well (think of the weight). The auctioneer stacked them on PALLETS.

Sadly, nobody wants a ton of sports cards. I think Mike made less than $500. on them.

I would have rather burned them.....justice.

I can't really say anything. I have a "carriage house" too small to be a garage; FULL of my mom's things. I was going to have a yard sale but I just don't have time.

I will call Salvation Army or hopefully find some Vet's organization that wants the stuff....

Sam just seems to have an obsession with Red Wing Shoes. And boots. And guns. And, since he's a beer snob, he wants to keep almost every new (empty) bottle of the ones he really likes. Except that he doesn't confine it to the basement or the garage - they end up scattered all over the house.......

I was just informed by my hoarder husband that my wine bottle collection is getting out of hand......

Wait..wait..I've got a good one. During deer season, Mike saves all the bags that the ice (for the coolers) come in. He carefully inties them, dumps the ice, then rolls them up.

Seriously?

Hahahah, yeah...Sam's bottle collection was both getting out of hand, and making him/us look like we have a drinking problem. I think I'm going to dump it all in the recycling bin while he's gone, either this week...or between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Shhhhh. Don't tell.

Moral of these stories? Husbands don't get rid of anything!

I wait for the weeks that my hubby goes to TN on business and I get a dumpster. Twice a year I purge our basement, garage and closets. Keeps me busy while he is gone.

Ugh. It feels like something is crushing the middle of my ribcage. I'd love for it to stop.
