Ugh, that would drive me bat shit crazy!  Luckily, there are certain areas of our shared home that we each leave alone.  He has his man cave area, and I won’t even so much as vacuum that room.  Likewise, he knows better than to rearrange anything in the bathroom and he certainly doesn’t go near my closet.

Maybe next time he gets the urge to ‘organize’ something, ask him if he can wait and do it together?  You don’t want to discourage him from pitching in, but you don’t want him to think it’s ok to go moving stuff without telling you either!

FH and I do live together and I’ve been having the same problem. He likes things to be a certain way, which is fine when he’s here and I can ask him where he put things. However, on days like today when he’s got to work almost all day, I can never find anything.

I have been married to Mr. 99 for five years, to this day, he will move something if he doesnt like where I put it, them promptly forget where he placed the item in question.  He cannot stand to see anything out of place, and I am one of those people who leaves bills on the table by the door, only to be looked at on bill paying day, I drop my HUGE purse on the corner of the couch along with whatever coat I’m wearing…then I leave my shoes on the caddy by the door…he will tolerate this…anything else has a 12 hour cooling off period before he moves it….I just accepted it for what it was and always ask him where things are before I bother looking.

Eek, I don’t have that problem with Darling Husband (thank goodness) but Mother-In-Law is the worst for that! She decided to be ‘helpful’ when we moved in together and unpacked several things for us even though we specifically told her not to and I’m still texting her every so often asking where things are *sigh*. I think if you just have a little talk with him about it he’ll understand that it’s important that you know where things are in your own home, especially for emergencies.

My husband has two areas that he is free to organize, the den and the garage.

I have the mail set up in a certain way. One slot for junk mail, one for unopened mail, and another for opened mail. One time he came in and switched it all. I don’t know why it annoyed me, but it did. I let him have it….lol.
