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.
But before we begin
Today is a very special day for one of our readers. Katharine is getting married today. Congratulations Katharine and partner, I hope you have a beautiful day and a wonderful life together. Clutter free of course. After all you have him almost trained already. 😉
Fave Five Comments. Enjoy!
In this comment from Eve you will read some words of wisdom gathered through experience when it comes to moving.
I enjoyed this comment from Deb J which I think is a more common occurrence than the opposite situation.
This comment from Felicity has a little regret twist at the end of it but I am betting that if she had those items she mentions she would declutter them with the rest of the stuff.
Diane, who is new to my blog, is learning to let go of some sentimental clutter in this comment.
Sharron and I couldn’t be more opposite when it comes to our feelings about the usefulness (or not) of drawers. As she said in a later comment ~ One man’s meat is another mans poison. In this comment she also talks about the problem she has with some obligation clutter in her home. Perhaps you have a suggestion to help her find a solution.
Fave Five Web Finds. Happy reading!
Every now an again when reading comments from new readers I miss the fact they they have there own blogs. Lena in Philly has a novel way of getting rid of her clutter by offering it up on her blog ~ www.garbaj.com
Then there is this blog from another Lena, which is in Swedish so you will have to have your computer translate it for you ~ Less is more
Now this is impressive and it really gives me hope the the world is heading in the right direction. Lets hope other countries get on board this initiative. Good News Network.org ~ Patagonia Common Threads Launch
Here is a lovely feel good story from Australia that Cindy found. Although I am not keen about all the product involved I really do love the gensture. ~ Goodnewsnetwork.org ~ 30 gifts to 30 Aussie strangers
This blogger discovered my blog this week through another blog and in turn I have now been introduced to her blog. I hope you will enjoy this post I chose to share with you while checking out her blog and also welcome Megyn to 365 Less Things. ~ Minimalist Mommi ~Letting go.
Today’s Declutter Item
Just another ill-chosen item of clothing that is now gone to the thrift shop. It doesn’t pay to go clothes shopping either ~ on a whim, without assessing what you really need, in desperation when your wardrobe is depleted and you need something in a hurry. You are also setting yourself up for bad choices when your main prerequisite is low prices. Although it is great to get a bargain on something you really want shopping with only low prices in mind has you settling for those “make do” items which will soon end up in the “never wear” end of your closet.
Something I Am Grateful For Today
A fine day yesterday to dry my washing the low impact way, on the clothesline that is. My son is off to visit his sister interstate today and he needed things clean to pack. It was a beautiful day of which I took full advantage. I went for a walk, did that washing, sat on the patio to have my lunch and opened the doors and windows to freshen up the house.
