    My wife knows not to toss any of my stuff out but she does make random boxes of my stuff. Mostly cardboard boxes then she puts them in random places, unmarked. I recently found several boxes while cleaning down stairs. She also knows my stuff has value and somethings are not to be sold.

    My wife loves to walk around picking up random stuff and putting it in a box which gets stashed someplace.

    No rhyme or reason to it, no pattern, there is just no telling.

    She is forbidden to enter the reloading casting room without me present.

    She is a compulsive cleaner, and I have seen her go through the house getting one room 1/3 to half done then walk into another room for something and carry on in there. Anything left anywhere any any of 4-5 rooms could end up anywhere. And no way of telling where to start looking.

    So I just plain told her. Next time you walk off with something of mine, and it disappears. Instead of tearing my hair out in frustration. I am just going to get a hammer and start smashing prettys.

    Has not stopped it 100% but it toned it way way down.

    I built a shop about 40 feet from my house. My wife knows not to mess with anything in that building. The house is her domain and I just alter or repair as directed. Leave something out in her kitchen and there is he!! to pay. I have my office in the house and I can do with that as I want but the rest is hers! Works for us but I still lose stuff in the shop and can't blame it on anyone but myself. Yes, Christmas can come any time of the year out in the shop!

All other belts are missing. We looked for the tote for three days now. The belts are in an envelope that is missing. She says maybe there in the tote

    She has been hiding things for 34 yrs.

    Now if I could just find my Ruger single six 22 mag cylinder
    You're not alone. Mine will move my stuff and when I ask, "I haven't seen it", is her stock answer. When I find it I'll say something like "I know I would have never put it there". I just get that look! Womens!!!

    47 years I have been married to the same woman. After she had a child she became OCD the disease all of those who do not have it suffer.

    I fight back touch our stuff and we touch yours. They are nuts, [non medical] have them get help from their doctor there is some cure or relief. They have know idea what they are doing by the way.

    Called tough love by her DR. It is a controllable situation don't control it together and bad stuff can happen up to suicide. We married for better or worse, working with it is the way to go.

    She starts in now I move the dresser drawers around, she gets it. Better than arguing about it.

    Hi...
    I don't understand any of this.
    My wife knows not to mess with anything in the house that belongs to me.
    95% of what I have in the house is in my den. I do all the cleaning in that room. At any given time, I might have a half dozen books on the desk that I am studying. They are always where I leave them and if they were left open, they stay that way.
    She never touches any of my gun related stuff and she may never have stepped inside my reloading/hobby room since we built it in 2000 or so.
    She does have a bad habit of messing with stuff in the garage...mostly rakes, shovels, etc. She can't seem to ever find a way to put them back where they belong.
    Unfortunately, my son has the same problem.

    I stayed single... now where did I put that AR buffer and spring... searched for a month, gave up and bought a new one. I was digging in the gun parts in the safe and it was in a little tote with AK-47 slings... Now I won't have to buy that for the AR I am currently building LOL

    My wife of 34 years is the queen of rubbermaid totes. Had so many she ended up renting space to keep them in. One year cleaned out the garage. She and her niece just about filled it up so a few years later I told her the totes have to go and that is when she did the renting thing. Must have been at least 35 of the darn things. Now they are scattered all over the house except for the garage. The ones in the garage were covered in dust and other stuff. The plastic bags she had got shredded by mice (think semi rural area) Don't know how many of the huge trash cans over a period of time I filled up. I have two totes. One is for ground corn cob media and the other is crushed walnut media. Wish my local SIL would come and clear out his stuff in the garage. Maybe after I croak. Frank

    All women are the same, they all come with the same standard equipment and they perform pretty much the same.
    When they are new, shinny (young) and racy you just have to have one. And more times than not they have a ticking sound in their computer, or a rod knocking and you need to get rid of them before you sign the contract. Sometimes you get lucky and everything runs smoothly, especially if you don't redline them. They'll last for many years without blowing up on you.

    Me and my wife both have a bad habit of " putting things away " and not remembering where we put them. A few years ago we bought another gun safe to accommodate our growing gun collection. We found 22 handguns hidden in various places in our bedroom, several of which whe had forgotten that that we had bought!!! LOL!!!

    Reading all this reminds me how lucky I am with my wife. Once in a while she will put something of mine away and I will ask her where it went and she will help me track it down but for the most part she leaves my scattered stuff alone and warns me in advance so I can clear it out. Yes she is an organizer but she is very respectful of my stuff.

    She does lay claim to a few of my guns to the extent that they are still mine but just donít sell those particular ones. My load room in the barn is strictly my space just like I can store my saddle and other tac k in her tack room but on her terms. Fair I would say.

    I count myself lucky!

    Mrs. smokeywolf is the most patient, tolerant, thoughtful person I've ever known. With one exception, she is the perfect wife. She hates, abhors, detests, despises cleaning house. To make matters worse, I'm a pack-rat and our house, in spite of being a 4br/2ba house, is smaller than average for the typical suburban SoCal home. In addition to the house being too small for our stuff, the shop/garage which has not had a vehicle parked in it for nearly 20 years is nowhere near big enough for the machinery and tooling I have.

    Yea . . . the the worst thing is when YOU get yourself organized, YOU put your "treasures" so YOU know "exactly where they are" . . . . .and then you forget where you put them.

    My wife moves things without knowing what they are. When I ask "Where is my gizmo?" she replies "I don't know. I don't know what a gizmo is."

    I knew exactly where to find my hammer when I saw the mayonnaise on the workbench. That was self-inflicted. My wife of 54 years, no longer fixes my mess, but she expects me to keep it to a minimum.

    Several years ago I was making handles for two knives i had made. I was using zebra wood scales and found that I was allergic to the dust! I swelled up like a toad and had to have shots and medication to get over the allergy. Then every time I went into my shop it would start again. My Dr. said that all the dust from grinding/sanding the zebra wood would have to be removed as my reaction was getting progressively worse.

    My wife removed everything from the shop and cleaned my shop and contents thoroughly. After she put it back I did not find some of my tool, gun parts, etc. until we moved early this year and I had to pack up my shop to move. This was 6 years later! But Iím not gonna complain (at least where she can hear) as I could not have done it.

    But if you have a choice donít let her near your shop. You may never see some stuff again!
