taking pictures of items he can't toss and then he can still look back at them and maybe toss them too?? Just an idea. No excuses he can still claim it as a memory if he can see it right? :LOL

I'm sorry, but I am one of those people that can' stand clutter (unless its my own.. LOL) and dh never misses anything I threw out. If, very rarely, he does say, hey, hon, where are my XYZ and I say, beat's me.... dunno.... he'll come back with something like, yeah, right, I bet you threw it away. (Which is probably true) He knows he hordes, and he knows it bugs me, so I do what I have to do. I am here all day and he's not, I can't live that like.

no no! I'm listening. I'm with you. I think a solution that works for everyone is the best idea.

Plus, I still say if you don't really address what's going on, the empty space will just get filled up with more clutter.

But - I started a help for hoarders thread and would invite you to share your ideas there.

Third generation WOHM. I work by choice.

Well, DH has surprised me. He's still not chipping in on the garage mess, but he did ask me why I didn't throw out an old shirt of his. I'd asked him about it the other day (see srain, I'm trying! although I refuse to "forget" I have a garage LOL) and he said he'd still wear it around the house, holes and all, so I quietly rolled my eyes and hung it back in his closet. Now he says he expects me throw stuff like that out. Hmmm, somebody got bitten by the decluttering bug!
