No room for men in the wardrobe…
MEN are being forced to keep their belongings in the garden shed because their wives or girlfriends take up two-thirds of the space indoors, a study claims.
The average male is allowed just three drawers and one-third of the wardrobe for his clothes. One in ten has just a single shelf to call his own. And 18 per cent use the shed for storage, according to the survey.
Although men complain about lack of space in the house — 28 per cent are fed up with the amount of ‘stuff’ their other half has — they are the main culprits when it comes to mess.
And male clutter can take its toll on relationships. Six per cent of women admitted to nearly leaving their partner because of his mess, and 88 per cent wish their man was more organised.
Nearly one in five women have secretly thrown out clothes belonging to their man because ‘they didn’t suit them’, and 16 per cent have binned a partner’s possessions because their ‘very existence annoyed me’.
A spokesperson for Anglian Home Improvements, which carried out the study, said: ‘It’s probably time we all had a bit of a declutter!’
