I've been given strict instructions to not touch hubby's tools. OTOH, my father-in-law had 15 of everything. I figure when hubby divvies up sets with his brother, I'll sneak into the shop, get my own set & hubby will never notice he has only 6 sets instead of 7.
I resemble that remark. At one time I hade 9 pipe wrenches- I am not a plumber by trade, but my grandfather had a friend that was an auctioneer! No when my dad passed he had 3 of every electrical hand tool need for his trade- he never left a dime of yearly Ohio Edison tool stipend go unspent. I split them with my brother who install home theaters now for Best Buy after 20 years installing car stereos for them. I am downsizing now and imagine the 7 times I gave a restored pipe wrench as a home buying gift!

I second the written contract!!! She is a shifty and undependable which is a dangerous combo. Contracts protect more than they hurt!! Just add good verbiage on how long you are sully sitting and that after an exact number of days she is forfeiting the tortoise and will receive a sum of (cage minus the supplies you bought---receipts). all in nice typeface and then get it notarized

My hubby is a pack rat. His dad & 2 wives didn't throw anything out. My eyes have been opened wide by this moving experience. Downsizing is so hard, especially when you have deadlines. But we're almost out of the Republic of Boulder. It's a start!

Chef, you're in the look-see mode?

Yes. When you are all talking about “downsizing” I am constantly throwing out my husband’s EMPTY boxes from all kinds of stuff. They are just all over the house!
Every time I give him a bag of stuff to get rid of he comes back with ANOTHER BAG OF STUFF!!!!
I can’t take it anymore!
I am about to have a breakdown!!
Sooo.... as I am once AGAIN cleaning the house today , I decided the next thing I have to downsize is HIM!
Bla...bla...bla....

Sooooo Blackdog.... about your brother....😆
