Bad Kitchen Habits

My hubband and I had a nit-picking the other day over what we each perceive to be the other's bad kitchen habits:

—He doesn't like putting groceries away so he can remember what he bought while he's cooking and I think he's leaving a bunch of clutter and a toe-stubbing hazard.

—I like putting all of my discarded fruit and veg matter in the sink (there's a strainer) and then throw it all out at once and he thinks it's going to clog up the sink one day.

—I clean as I go and he prefers to wash all the dirty stuff at once after it's been piled in the sink.

What are your kitchen habits? Would you put effort toward changing them, or do you kind of like them. (I need to work on not walking around with wet hands.)
