Default Ever have to explain 400 lbs of grain to sig other?

... the bulk cost savings argument isn't quite making up for all these sacks of grain in an 800sqft suite...

It was hard enough for me to convince her of 200# in a house w/ a basement that I use primarily for my stuff.

GOOD LUCK!

Seems to fit.

400# * 2 occupants = 800 wait... 800 sqft! The fung shu is right!

The trick is to stack them all against the wall... kinda like an Andy Warhol painting, except with grain sacks.

No, I never explain. I just ask forgiveness after the fact. Every time.

well, not being married, in a tight-quarters, or owning more than 50#, i can't offer you any useful advice... other than, you might want to prioritize what will live "outside"
