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!

also try having tons of hops and then getting deployed. A year later trying to convince your wife that you need to start getting fresh stuff while you throw away tons of hops

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"

Same here. Never had that much, but I sometimes keep a sack under the bed.
