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!
This comment form Jo epitomises the complexity of gift giving.
Ami is a new reader or at least a new commenter and needs a little encouragement to be patient with the slow and steady approach. She left this comment, her first, on Thursday and I was particularly happy with her finishing sentence. It proves that she is seeing the benefits already and just needs to focus on that.
Felicity highlights the advantage of a Summer Christmas in this comment.
I likes this idea for fundraising in a comment from Wendy W. Cut straight to the chase and forget all the nonsense.
Fave Five Web Finds. Happy reading!
I received a comment from Neko from Chicago IL a week or so back telling us about how, as a teacher, she incorporates fabric in her lessons. Here is her blog ~ bagitup4me-neko.blogspot.com . Perhaps if you live in the area you might be able to help her out by donating unwanted craft supplies and fabrics.
Quite often these days readers send me great links and here is one sent to me by Lynn ~ The Nest Effect ~ October Project-Conquer Paper Clutter
Australia has a new web site where you can give away or pick up free goods. It is much the same concept as Freecycle only with a really modern web design. I hope it catches on in my area. Here it is ~ Ziilch
Snosie was kind enough to send me a couple of links about recycled art to round off this weeks Favourite Five. I hope you enjoy them as much as she and I did. unconsumption.tumblr.com and recyclart.org
Today’s Declutter Item
It pays to do a little homework before discarding some items. Do to my experience at the thrift store I know the old ceramic items can be valuable. So I checked out this little figurine on ebay before deciding what to do with it. I soon discovered that it was worth more than the 50c we paid for it. I sold it on ebay for $20, once again my son was happy with the cash bonus.
Something I Am Grateful For Today
I think my cold has gotten a little better as the day has worn on. Fingers crossed I will feel even better tomorrow. I am grateful it hasn’t gotten worse at least.
