Hah, I have the opposite problem.  The recycling bags just sit there until I trip over them enough to take them out myself, even though he walks past the recycling area in our complex on his way…

Honestly, I’m the one who throws things out.  I hate clutter, so if I don’t think something is useful, I have a habit of just tossing it.  My husband hates it, but I hate him leaving stuff around the house, lol!

Oh man – Normally we are pretty good about not accidentially throwing things away but I did this to my husband a few weeks ago. We usually go through the mail together and seperate it by bills/personal and junk. Well the junk pile sat there for a few days so i picked it up, looked at Darling Husband and asked if i could throw it away, he said yes. A few days went by and he couldnt find his enevelope with his renewed tags in them. I must have thrown them away with the junk mail, he was pissed! poor guy had to go back to the DMV too to get new tags. At least I asked! haha

Ugh, my husband thinks everything is junk mail if he doesn’t know what it is. He’s thrown away bills a couple of times and I thought I was going to kill him.

We have an extra bedroom and Darling Husband uses that for all his man-junk lol. Things from home that we have no place for. I need order in my life and went in there one day to find my old purse. I nearly passed out! It was a wreck and after wading through books and papers on the floor just to get to the closet, I complained and Darling Husband cleaned out the room later that week. I guess I have the opposite problem 😛 He’s gotten better but I can understand you’re frustration! It’s super annoying to have someone go through your things and clean/organize your stuff so that you can’t find a thing!

Oh yes, and then when I ask him he’s like “I think so?” So then I’m looking around wondering if I’m just crazy and I can’t find it or if it’s actually gone.

By far the most annoying was a small sauce pan that I used when I was just making a small amount of food and I went to use it one day and it was gone! Granted I can just use a bigger pan but still! He didn’t even ask me, he just tossed it.

UGH! My Fiance does that all the time. I now have to order a replacement birth certificate (!) and my car title. This is the 2nd time I’ve had to reorder my car title. I swear if it’s not nailed down he will toss it. I’m surprised our dog hasn’t been chucked yet!

I am the one that throws things out. I hate clutter and I hate paper even more. If something doesn’t have a place of its own than it goes in the garbage, our apartment is too small for stuff.

We help my BIL/MIL and niece move last summer. We basically ended up cleaning the whole garage and upstairs of the house, you should have seen how much crap I threw out. I think I probably threw out 12-15 garbage bags full of mcdonalds toys, paper, broken stuff and just plain junk, It was insane but felt pretty awesome when we were done. The garage was packed so full they couldn’t fit anything in it, by the time we were done there was room for two cars in there. We also took 5 car loads of stuff to the second hand store on top of the garbage, I couldn’t live like that.

Oh my god. My Fiance does this. The worst transgression (lol) … she threw out my wedding shoes. Okay, I can’t prove this one, she doesn’t remember doing it, but there is no other explanation! They were sitting in their box on the kitchen table and then they were just … gone. We searched the whole apartment and nothing. She must have gotten into a cleaning zone and just chucked out the whole box. That was hard for me to get over…

My husband is terrible for both putting away things I took out on purpose and throwing away stuff. I bought a shirt just last week and decided I didn’t want it so put it back in the bag with he receiPt and left it on the counter to take to he car next time I went out. He just went ahead and cut off the taanther threw them and the receipt in the trash and put away the shirt in my closet. 

Also last time we went camping about a week prior I started putting things aside in a laundry basket in the corner of our spare room as I thought ofthem so I wouldn’t forget. Things like a flashlight and hammer and toilet paper and s’mores ingredients. Then the day before we left while I was at work he put everything back where it belongs in the house and I was like REALLY it didn’t occur to you that a basket full of camping related stuff might be out for a reason!?!

OMG.  Thank goodness no.  I’d be furious if he randomly threw stuff out like that.  If it’s not obviously trash (boxes and packing materials and stuff of the sort does not count) we ask each other first.

I am like this, my Darling Husband has a habit of leaving his mail on the counter by the microwave. It gets so bad that stuff starts to topple over. So I just start tossing things. It annoys the heck out of me

I’ve tossed things.  Fiance is a packrat who doesn’t put things away and I hate clutter.  After a while of him not taking care of things, I’ll do so for him.
