Mrs T can load the dishwasher so that it looks completely full even though it only contains half the number of items that I could fit in it.
It drives me nuts.
I appreciate that this is largely my problem rather than hers.

If you are young and reading this, throw stuff away, frequently.

Good advice! And FWIW:

If you're having trouble with the "I still feel attached to this thing" issue... maybe try a Marie Kondo (the spark joy lady) trick: Thank the thing, then get rid of it. It's weird but it works.

Thank you, old cot, you really helped out when the kids were little and had sleepovers.

...and out it goes! Works like a charm.

I was in the Cavalry in the service, mounted in M3 Bradleys. We didn't really have to do much improv packing, the interior of that beastie was very well planned, but the lessons stuck and I'm definitely very good at it. From garage shelves to suitcases I'm the man. But the first term I ever heard for that particular skill was "Tetris".
