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 Spendwisemom just goes to prove that Christmas can have a different format to drowning your children in gifts and still be great for both you and the kids.
This week Sara added her voice to the group and wow is she doing her bit for the environment. You can read about it here if you missed her comment on Wednesday.
Perhaps we have a Kindle convert in Martha @ minimalistinthemaking.blogspot.com. although I don’t think we will wean her off real books altogether I think she is finding that digital isn’t so bad after all. Read her comment here.
In this comment Debbie tells us about what great declutter buddies her and Sabine have been for each other.
I enjoyed this comment from Jessiejack because she seems to have found the balance between her love of reading and the need to own the books themselves.
Fave Five Web Finds. Happy reading!

It is hard to avoid extra shopping during the holiday season but it really isn’t that hard to avoid plastic bags. I found this website this week dedicated to going bagless ~ baglessnu.wordpress.com ~ check it out.
If you love to give gifts from the heart but feel the need for there to be a tangible item passed from the giver to the recipient then here is a wonderful solution. It is a better option to buying gifts that end up as clutter in peoples home and can also then be passed on from one recipient to the another creating a history as it goes. In fact the tangible part of this gift could be returned to the giver when the actual kindness has been carried out and then passed on to another. I know I would like someone to wash my car, cook a meal or take me out for a treat instead of giving me a gift I most likely didn’t even want. “What am I talking about?”, you ask, well check this out and see for yourself ~ me-do-dat.com

Today’s Declutter Item
At long last the end of the Coca Cola collection. Sometimes it takes a little perseverance to sell things on ebay. Luckily I have no shortage of determination and finally I sold these off to once again make a little pocket money for my son. I am just glad to see the back of them.
Something I Am Grateful For Today
Just sitting around chatting. It is good to be able to spend hours in the company of others and do nothing but chat about whatever subject comes up.
It matters not how fast I go, I hurry faster when I’m slow
