On Fridays at 365 Less Things I share with you my five favourite comments from my wonderful readers and my five favourite web finds of the week. I hope you will enjoy them as much as I did.
Fave Five Comments. Enjoy!
Actually I couldn’t stop at five so there are six this week. Hee hee, it’s my blog and I’ll break the rules if I want to.
This comment from Amy in NY holds a number of good points when it come to clutter.
Here is a comment with some good advice about keepsake clutter form Minhus.
I loved this comment from Jane, it so nails what hobbies are for a lot of people. The key is to only invest in supplies you need NOW and then you will not get bogged down in aspiration clutter when the novelty wears off.
And this comment from Jo is the flip side to Janes comment. Both are correct of course because Jane has come to her realisation that it is purely aspiration while Jo will bide her time decluttering other stuff until she is ready to let go or not.
This comment from Lena and all the wonderful comments like it that I get from other readers and even knowing their are people out there benefiting from what I write that I never hear from is why I am still blogging about this subject after all this time. Helping people is a beautiful thing.

Today’s Declutter Item
This item has been taking up valuable space in the bottom of my wardrobe forever. I bought it when I was in the enthusiastic period of my scrapbooking days. My intention was to use it when attending scrapbooking retreats and classes to which I never went. It was such a handy bag or at least it will be to the lady who bought it from me for $51 on ebay.
Something I Am Grateful For Today
The beautiful breeze that wafted into town tonight is what I am grateful for today. We have had a very hot few days and this breeze is so refreshing. I hate being weak by turning on the airconditioner but it is imposible to sleep upstairs in our bedroom without it on hot nights. And I need my beauty sleep.
