I’m talking about husbands in Podcast #14.
As you probably know if you’ve been around the blog, I don’t put up with husband-bashing, so know that going in if you want to give it a listen.

I discovered your podcast about three weeks ago, and I have to say I am hooked. I especially like the one you just did about husbands. Two days from now I am going to pay a drclutter consultant $125 for three hours. This is after three years of just not being able to get his stuff in order. In the future I will focus on my own clutter, change my own habits. And think that eventually we might be able to park the car in the garage. Thanks for all your wonderful work!
I really appreciate the fact that you don’t put up with husband-bashing. It is one of the many reasons I love your blog!
My husband did say to me last night “why does the house look so good lately?” I did not tell him, I´m still working on basic things, but great that he notices 🙂 Thank you for the inspiration.

I love it!!! Go you!
You have no idea how happy I am that not only do you NOT bash husbands, but you don’t put up with people who do. It makes my heart sad when I hear it. (I admit it – I’m an old fashioned romantic. I love seeing couples who have been married for 50 years, walking hand-in-hand in the mall. )
My husband is great. He will do anything I ask/need him to do. My problem: I forget to ask. He cooks and grocery shops for us, so that being a huge thing, I try not to ask for too much more.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for not man-bashing! I cannot tell you how many women have advised me to try to “fix” his clutter issues, or to sneak and throw away his stuff or donate it. We both have clutter issues, and want to hold on to different stuff. Your advice is so much better! Happily married for over 25 years and want us to stay happy!

Thank you so much for your book. I got the audio book and listened to it like probably 15 times! I was trying to figure out how to get hubs on board so we could do this together and we had a day where we had to clean to get ready for a party so I put your book on and we listened together. Since then we are 4 weeks going on no panic attack when the door opens clean house! we are working together and its so great Thank you !
Hi! I’m happy to have nothing to do with my husband’s stuff. I have very little stuff of mine in highly visible areas, although I have significantly contributed to our bedroom clutter. Our main challenge in family/visible areas is kid stuff. Which my husband does not like to let go of. Even if the kid says it’s ok. If a kid used to enjoy a thing, or got it as a gift from anyone, he wants it to stay, even if it’s broken. He’s sentimental.
His clutter threshold may be higher than mine, but I kind of doubt it. I think our clutter is making everyone stressed. Our container is fully overflowing.
I just want you to know that I’ve been listening to your podcasts for a couple of weeks. You reach me in every way. From the slob vision to the time tracking to the anti husband bashing. I am learning so much from you!
