Well, I won't tell dh this, but the workboot boxes will come in handy. Despite being done Christmas shopping, I decided to do some more Those boxes will fit the bathrobes everyone is getting. Sears had 30% off - good bathrobe is like $100, so mom, sister and dh all are getting new bathrobes and dh - he was very generous this year, I'm getting a beautiful white gold and diamond tennis bracelet. He really is too good to me, does etiquette dictate he see it before I wrap it?

Why spoil the suprise? Don't let him see it until you open it!

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.
Sometimes I worry that I'm the exact opposite of a hoarder. I love getting rid of things. My husband is obsessed with magazines...Diesel, motorcycles, hunting, wakeboarding...and he cannot stand to throw any of them away or recycle when he's done with them. We have an extra large tub filled to the brim of magazines and I swear the thing weighs 200 lbs. I keep threatening to burn them but he insists that he needs them.

And don't even get me started on the number of tee shirts that man has. They won't even all fit in his dresser. Every now and then I go through them and give atleast half to Goodwill but it is back to overflowing after 6 months.

I'm the same as you apenn. If I haven't used/worn/looked at it in 6 months, I get rid of it. I have the small closet and small dresser, the huge walk in closet and huge dresser are for hubby. He has so many clothes, which is strange because he wears the same thing all the time.

I don't like clutter and I don't like to be wasteful of space.

That's what he said! He said thank goodness he didn't know what to get me. Glad I took the load off his mind It's only from People's so not really good jewellery, but they had a heck of a sale, 15% off if you spent to one level and an additional 10% off if you spent to another level, so 25% off. I saved him money, time and a headache.

I am so glad my husband doesn't collect stuff. My FIL collects toy cars. Ahem, sorry MODEL cars. At $40 or $50 each, I can hardly imagine a better way to waste money. For something he doesn't even PLAY WITH lol. They just sit on shelves and in cases and my MIL has to dust them every week. Oh heck no!

My eye balls hurt. I've been trouble shooting electronic devices all day. And I am technically challenged. Some times life can be cruel. Luckily, I can drink an adult beverage tonight with my eyes closed. HA, life! I get the last laugh.

You know it's going to be a long day when you almost get into the shower...while still half dressed. Oh boy.
