Mr Ruby has a shelf in the cupboard for his everyday shirts,and as I iron them I fold them and stack them on the shelf.Each time I go to put the clean ones back on the pile,Mr Ruby has rummaged through the plie with his grubby little mitts and grabbed his favourite shirt,and the rest are in a heap!!!does your hubby do this?or is he Mr Neatness himself??

LOL! I am sure he is spoiled! ANyway,I don't iron all his clothes but I arrange it according to types and when he will get something, it seems that tornado came in!

Ahh, that's men for you! I leave my man to deal with his own clothes to put away, then it is up to him how he folds them and if he makes a mess of his drawers or not. Personally i like to hang my clothes anyway whereas he will fld them into drawers.

Hanging them is the preffered option but if I were to hang them then he just sort of pulls the hanger until the right one pops off and then the others are bundled back onto the clothes hanger and the mess is equally as bad!!I suppose that some of us are naturally tidy and some of us arent ,and he has many good points that outweigh this anyway,so I should be evry grateful!!

My partner can make a jumble sale look pretty neat you know,he just keeps turning the pile over till he finds the one he is looking for and he has no clue how to keep things tidy.Often I say to him about the mess and he just laughs and says life is for living,and I say yes but you arent the one who dus the housekeeoing,so its not you keeping tidying all the time.

Well, I hang my husband's shirts and when he needs one, he will iron it. I do not iron ahead of time for that same reason. Luckily he has many shirts that do not need ironing, so that is a big help as well.

Talking of non iron shirts well we went to Marks and Spencers and bought him a couple that have non iron on the label,well when they are washed there isnt any way that you could go out in them without ironing them,they are crinkly and they definately need a rub over ,so im not very impressed with the non iron bit.But one odf the worst shirts that he has ever had was a linen one,in fact he has two of them,and our son bought them for his birthday fro mMarks and Spencers,well they look great..for about five minutes lol and the they are just a creased up mess!!and before you say anything yes I know that the latest look is the creased up linen look,but when you are younger maybe its a look that you can get away with,but as the years go by its just a look that says that you havent bothered much with your self!

No my hubby is not the same! He likes his things to be neat and tidy. It is probably me that messes everything up when I put his stuff away!

Maybe it stems from his younger days Rose,his batchelor days when he was able to wear the clothes a few times and then replace them lol,but he is very untidy sometimes ,but I really dont like to tell him off as he is very good in many other ways,so each time I open the door to put the clean shirts in I straighten the other ones up!but lol im sure really they need ironing again,hey..maybe if I were to use some spray starch rofl,then the faric would stay stiff!!

Our house has walk in robes so its not too bad,we have plenty of space,the walk ins have shelves so everything has room to be stacked,and there are shelves at ground level and a bit above to put shoes on,but this doesnt mean that the robes are mess free,there are many time swhen ive to go in and give them a good sort out,but its easy to do it with the space.I maybe seem to think that a lot of men are a bit like your hubby,they throw their clothes down where they take them off etc,it seems to be a male trait,but luckily mines a tidy model.He has been well trained mind you lol

Nahh they arent posh really Ruby,but they do come in handy you can put all of your clothes behind closed doors and then noone can see the mess behind the doors lol.The thought of walk in wardrobes really appeals to me,I reckon I will go and take a wander around the home improvement stores and see what they have as ideas,lets face it the ordinary wardrobes are bulky and untidy looking ,

Oh how I love it when someone else suffers as I do! You know the answer, don't you? Throw away the iron, and leave his shirts in a heap. Mr Moo is incapable of folding an item of clothing, closing a drawer, or even putting anything back where he found it. But what is more annoying that any of that is that occassionally he has a cleaning and tidying frenzy where he stomps about nagging and grumping as if I've never lifted a finger in the house in my life. If you listened to him at those times, you'd certainly never believe that I daily retreive his dirty luandry from under the bed. Grrrrrrrr ...

I find that if you leave your shirts in the ironing basket until you need them, this problem doesn't arise. Alternatively, you could try hanging them on the floor!

Piky that is slovenliness at its best,and I could have expected an answer like that from you!!!I cant think of anything worse than ironing clothes as they are needed,it would drive me round the bend,I am an ironing freak,well not really Fishy lol,but I do have a good relationship with my Morphy richards.

Hmmmmm. I've got a large basket's worth. Perhaps I can drop them off en-route to the airport and pick them up on the way back? I''ll supply the hangers!

Well in my Husband ways it does not make trouble in my cabinet or in any shelves of his clothes because I am the one who always prepare for my Husband clothes of the day or sometimes I do ask him first before I will take it out in the cabinet and I always make it in the night....

LOL I usually get Hubby's clothes out and their kept on hangers so he can't make much of a mess. Though if Hubby did like yours I'd probably make him fold his own dang shirts till he learned to be neater about them. [b]~~AT PEACE WITHIN~~ **STAND STRONG AND TRUST IN GOD**[/b]
