My husband keeps EVERYTHING. At the end of the day he empties his pockets on our dresser - change, random crap, receipts, etc. A few days of this and our dresser is a mess. I have put out a change jar and a catch all basket for him but he just dumps it anyway.
It's torture trying to get him to get rid of things. His drawers are overflowing with clothes he doesn't wear, he has towers of cds he doesn't listen to, tons of framed pictures he doesn't hang and we don't have room for anyway, and shelves full of books that he's already read and won't read again but won't get rid of - you get the picture. I try to ask him to do one thing at a time like go through his drawers once in a while but he either "forgets" or gets distracted and it doesn't get done. Short of throwing away everything he owns by myself, how do you handle this if you've been in a similar situation?
