Well, there are different levels of hiding. I don't hide things in order to deceive my husband because I'm not up to anything I don't want him to know about.

Then, there are things I'm hiding for a perfectly good reason, like Christmas gifts. I don't worry that he'll go looking for him the way a kid will, but I don't want him to stumble upon anything while going about his business. I put presents in a particular cupboard that he never needs to visit.

Then, there are things he'd prefer I hide for his own good. Specifically, food. Again, he does not go looking for this. There are a couple of cupboards he accesses regularly to make his breakfast. If I put junk food in pretty much any other cupboard, he'll never even know it's there. DH is similar to B8's husband, I think. Out of sight= out of mind, but dangling things in front of him is torture.

I have found that I can hang all sorts of cookies in plain sight just by putting some ginger snaps in the cookie jar. The smell of ginger permeates all the other cookies and turns him off. I can also have anything containing cinnamon or raisins laying out without tempting him.
