I am absolutely astonished at the amount of clothes that my husband has. He easily has 3x the clothes that I do. Stupid thing about this is that he wears about 1/3 of them…and shuffles the rest around washing them.
I kid you not. I was separating clothes tonight and the man has about 6 pairs of jeans in the laundry baskets. How many pairs fit him? Probably 2. Then why are we keeping the other 4 pair?? I have no clue!!!
He has around 100 t-shirts. And he wears maybe 10. Hats are another problem…he has boxes of hats. He does wear them, but why the heck do you need so many? Don’t most guys have a favorite hat and that’s that? Not my guy!
The other thing is…he wears the same few outfits and washes them about every other day. He has 2 sets of shelter clothes, and one set of work clothes. So those, ok…may need washing a lot, but he washes his coat every couple days too. Does he not realize that clothes start to fall apart after so many washings??
He also wears the same bed clothes, same 4 or 5 pairs of socks and the same boxers over and over again…yes, they are washed…but we’re doing laundry on a daily basis here.
We don’t have a dresser to keep all these clothes in, our bedroom isn’t very big and so he has clothes all over the house. I asked him to put some of the t-shirts and other clothes that didn’t fit right now, but that he didn’t want to throw away into these tubs I bought…well, he misunderstood me and just put clothes in the tub that he wanted to keep and needed to be put away. So all of the clothes that don’t fit or whatever are in the house.
I just don’t understand this issue with the clothes and all the washing. it’s getting ridiculous. And don’t get me wrong…I love the man dearly, but his little quirks and this OCD business with the clothes is beginning to drive me batty!
Someone hold me, plz.
