I am organised when it comes to decluttering and clearing out my wardrobe, however I can’t seem to get Hubby to understand the same. He thinks it’s perfectly acceptable to have t-shirts that were bought ten years ago, or that he might actually have a need for that novelty tie one day.
Thankfully he does have the good grace to look smart when we go out together, or when he needs to present himself well, but I usually have to suggest the correct shirt to go with the trousers, and we don’t tend to have conversations about which shoes he’ll wear as it often ends in arguments.
I have learnt over the years that the only way to get around this stubbornness to keep hold of every piece of clothing he owns despite the state of it, is to buy him something new every now and again and each time I have an opportunity when hanging out the washing for example, I can remove said piece of clothing that isn’t quite up to scratch any more and remove it from the house.
Is your husband / partner the same as mine? Please tell me I’m not the only one fighting this ever losing battle.
