    Took me longer than a minute but finally...
    As Cicero said, “Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all the others.”

    My life will never be perfectly Kondo'd since I seem to have an evil twin who follows behind me and un-does all my tidiness. My junk drawer, for example. Lovely to look at for about a week or so and then it reverts back to its tangled mess

    My undies? Forget about it...once folded, they party at night and become all loose and sloppy....but happy.

    Fitted sheets hate me and refuse all my best efforts to make friends...
    peaceful, easy feeling

    I've never read Kondo. I'm curious, how does she deal with (or does she) people who live with someone who is not interested in a Kondo'd life. Long ago, when I was single and lived alone, (and before Kondo had written anything on the topic) I had developed my own method of living that wasn't Kondo level but did involve knowing where everything would go and making an effort to put everything in its place. Now that I live with someone who lives by the motto "any flat place is a good spot to set this" it would be a full-time job to keep tidy at even a fraction of Kondo-level organization.

    JP, I cannot remember if she addresses that. She is a neat freak to the max. I will enjoy not having someone else making messes.

    I'll put what I said to IL more bluntly: PUT UP OR SHUT UP! Post some direct quotes where I've said anyone is "stupid and/or naïve, deliberately obtuse, sloppy readers, and we have other character flaws"

I try to contribute whatever I can to forums I belong to, but the only reason I ever join a forum is because I want to learn from whatever information is posted there. I join for my own benefit, and if being a member isn't worth my time I leave. I don't waste my time in forums where I have to walk on eggshells for fear of someone reading judgements into my posts that simply aren't there.

    You and everyone else can now resume you private little chat over the back fence, because I'm gone permanently.

    Well, the colors I am washing together are black, dark blue, and dark green, and it hasn't presented any problems to date.

    Heathanism here. I wash everything together cold including whites and drop back on detergent. Weather permitting, most often everything get line dried outside. As a side benefit, I think clothes last longer by line drying rather than a hot tumble drier. Jeans get folded onto a closet shelf and that's all the folding.

    I wash everything together and have for almost 50 years. But I wash gently and dry gently. Seldom have new clothes like jeans that are likely to deposit dye on other clothes. Often I will take out and line dry the rest of the way rather than baking my stuff.

    Tried being neater in the folding dept and even got a Tshirt folder but that did not last long. Too many other things to do. So we hang up outer wear shirts and quickly fold tshirts and pants. I am lucky if I match socks.
