Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2002 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

Kitchenware? Food laundry?
You could take some of your dishes &tc. out of commission -- bench them so you have to do the dishes more often. I've done that here. Most of my dishes, utensils, and cookware are in inaccessible cabinets. People try to do the dishes often anyway, especially since the rule is "do your own dishes," with the benevolent corollary of "you can leave your dishes for later once in a while, as long as you just as often do other people's dishes that they don't do immediately."
