My hubby will leave empty containers of food items in the fridge and also will open a new item without totally finishing another of the same item even when its still good. Does your partner do this?

Other: I have no idea. LDR. I do know that my mom tends to throw away jars and squeeze bottles if she sees them on the counter, so occasionally at home I'll hide an empty container in the fridge when I'm too tired or time-constrained to clean it out (at max this is overnight, and then I'll clean the container out and take it to the recycle bin later). So if I ever leave an empty container in the fridge, it's a move for the environment

bf is actually really good about it if its empty he will trash or recycle it. What he isn't good at is he will wrap something up for later and later never comes he forgets all about it so I end up with tons of leftovers in the fridge

My husband never leaves empty containers in the fridge. Once or twice he has opened something new before finishing the old, but the few times he's done it have always been honest mistakes - he literally doesn't realize there's an open one or something.

What really bugs me is my husband doesnt tell me when i need to go to the grocery store for a specific item when he finishes it.

It happens on occasion, more out of the habit of putting it away when he's done with it. I do the same thing too. Take out the milk and use the last of it and unless I'm consciously processing that it's empty, I've put the empty one back in the fridge. I've caught him doing the same thing. We try to keep that to a minimum though. And like redvinylkitty's husband, the only times we ever really open something new before finishing the old is when one of us doesn't realize there's already one open.

My boyfriend does not leave empty or almost empty containers in the fridge. I'm the one who will have 2-3 open bottles of pop or ranch dressing sitting in there with only a little bit left, though I have never put back an empty container.

My husband does this all the blasted time. I think it's a "There's still some in there! Stuck in the cap, see?" sort of thing. But when he opens a new one...grr....charitabl y, I try to think maybe he didn't notice the open one.

My last one did. After a while it caused a bloody war scene. Reaching for something thinking it's there, but it's not? Oh, hell no.

Wow---people seem to get really up-in-arms about this! I like to keep the refrigerator pretty streamlined, so I go through it, write things on the list that are almost empty, and chuck things that are empty. I don't think "oh man my boyfriend is driving me mad by sabotaging the refrigerator!" It's just normal household wear and tear. If he opens a carton of orange juice while there's still another half-full one, I'll offer everybody glasses of orange juice until they can be consolidated. No biggies.

It bugs both my GF and me that my son does that... way too often.

This stuff used to drive me NUTS! But as time has gone on I have finally decided that he is just the sweetest, kindest and most loving person I have ever known, and his terrible kitchen habits are a small price to pay for having that kind of man in my life.

My man doesn't do either of those things, but I do! haha. I don't leave empty containers in the fridge because that's irritating beyond belief, but I will open a new thing up without finishing the last one.

No but I'm worse than that. I put back products that are past best before date. I know it's silly, and I have no idea why I can't just throw them out. My mind thinks that someone will take care of them?

My hubby always leaves empty containers in the fridge and pantry, and also opens a new one before the older one is completely empty. Drives me crazy.

I think it's kinda funny that this is the 20k forum post on the forums (according to the #'s)
