To be annoyed DH sorted out my drawer?

I have a drawer where I keep random stuff, plus spare make up, condoms etc. Last night I went in there to get a condom and DH pipes up, they are on the left. When I looked he'd reorgainsed it all. It gave me the hump, but we were ahem busy so I didn't say anything till later. He can't understand why I'm annoyed as I don't keep secrets but I do like to have some privacy eyes up pile cream
Is it me?

YANBU it is nice to have a bit of privacy.
I also have a bedside drawer but it hasn't been sorted out in years, it's full of crap but I still consider it personal. I am pretty sure there is nothing I need to hide in there but it's my space.
I also don't like it when DH uses my phone (iPhone, he has a basic phone) then browses around. I haven't done anything wrong or looked up anything dodgy but it still feels like snooping. DH is the most unlikely snooper there is but it feels like it is my private space.
So YANBU at all to be annoyed, I suspect thought that it wouldn't have occurred to DH to think of it like that rather than it being malicious.

I wouldn't be annoyed in the slightest, but then we don't have private drawers in our house, he goes in my handbag and I go in his briefcase. It would never occur to me that there was a drawer I couldn't go in in my own home.
I would consider it a non issue but each to their own.

YADNBU and I say that with every fibre of my being. My DH goes through what I quietly think of as 'my' drawers like a possessed toddler when he's looking for things. Tampons and nail varnish and sewing kits and half empty bottles of body lotion fly about everywhere. I would never do this to what I think of as 'his' stuff. I don't think he has the same mental division - and a small, nauseated part of me has just thought that perhaps he does, actually, divide our stuff and his stuff up in the same way I do, but just thinks my stuff is meaningless crap, whereas his stuff is important. Shite.
At least your DH didn't rifle through your stuff, he sorted it. Here's hoping he didn't alphabetise your creams and lotions according to brand name and intended use. 'Anusol? Anus - at the top. Always? Vaginal - at the bottom.'

I have 2 drawers, one by my bed and one in the kitchen. I'd kill anyone who rooted through them. It may look like mayhem when you open them, but I know where everything is. My mum's drawer was next to her bed and a year after she died, my dad still hasn't gone through it.
