    Default Do you pack for your other half?

    DH and i just had a little argument about putting things away - this led to him expressing how annoyed he is that if he goes a way somewhere i dont pack or unpack his bags for him!
    I was a bit WTF if we go away i pack for myself & the 3 kids plus snacks, food etc and all he ha to do is pack his personal belongings.

    He has also been fortunate enough to go on a couple of solo trips without me & the kids (yes im uber jealous) so why on earth would i assist in packing or unpacking for a holiday im not going on?? :/

    I do ask him if he needs a re-stock on any toiletries etc coming up to any trip.

    Im interested to know how others do this????

    If we are all going away together I pack for everyone. Mainly because I am already packing so I may as well do DF too.
    If he is going away by himself he does it himself.

    No way!

    I don't unpack for him either. For the record DH has a half unpacked bag from a holiday we took in April sitting next to his bed. I refuse to touch it. He knows I won't!

    Generally yes I do. DH is a hopeless packer, picker up afterer and tidier of clothes. I am constantly picking up clothes after him and DS. Grrrr!!!

    Yes. Because he forgets so many things and is pretty useless at it. He twice went to Afghanistan without his body armour!

    I never unpack for him tho. He needs to give me everything he wants packed and then I mark it off my list. I also needy o remind him to take his wallet, phone and keys.

    Only toiletries and things - I write packing lists for everyone and tell him how many of what type of clothes he will need but he usually picks them - also he packs the suitcases as I usually just throw everything in!

    Yes I do. Our stuff usually all goes in together so I do it. Plus, he has no sense of fashion and would be happy to get around in the daggiest clothes, so I make sure his nicer clothes go away with us.

    Nope he can pack his own clothes. I run through a list to make sure we have everything.

    I pack everyone's bags and he packs the car - just how it's evolved over the years. He packs his own bag if he's going somewhere solo.
    I don't unpack his bags.
