Too many clothes; not enough space...

My girlfriend recently moved in with me. She brought with her several square kilometres* of absolute junk. She doesn't agree that it is junk, though. She says it is "clothes, jewellery, make-up and pretty-things."
Whatever it is, the fact of the matter is that there is just not enough room for it all. I love her and everything, but no man should have to put up with this amount of crap in his house.

So, I began to look for solutions, and it turns out that this problem is one which has troubled philosophers such as Socrates and Plato, right through to Descartes and Bentham; and one which continues to bewilder 21st century thinkers such as Brian Cox and Richard Dawkins.

I think I might have found the answer, though. A young scholar named Tinie Tempah (seen below) writes:

"I've got so many clothes, I keep some at my Aunt's house"

Hopefully this is a piece of advice that my girlfriend will be willing to adhere to because the current arrangement of girly-crap all over my beloved bachelor-pad is unsustainable. Does anybody else have this problem?

*kilometres are what British people call 'kilometers'

  12. When a guy and a girl share a closet, the guy is actually just sharing what space the girl does not use.

  29. I definitely can empathize with your situation! I detest having clutter all over the place, yet am subject to it pretty frequently. Buy her Hoarders Best Moments for her birthday and maybe she will turn around. :)

  31. Another answer is "listen you b****, you better get your sh*** out of here! or make me a s*******"

    She'll dump you, but it'll be funny :)
