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!
Wow what a week it has been, so many great conversations going on in comments. Choosing five has been tricky but five it has to be so here goes.
Cindy has chosen this comment form Annabelle in response to her Wednesday Wisdom.
I enjoyed this comment from Lesley even though at first glance it would seem we had opposing idea but in fact I think we actually agree on this topic.
I also enjoyed this exuberant comment from Dizzy a new reader/commenter. I hope she stays involved as she seems to be full of energy and I am sure has plenty to add to our daily conversations.
This comment from Creative Me contains just one of the scenarios I was expecting to elicit when I wrote Tuesdays Post. I knew someone out there would have saved items to hand down to their child and ended up not have the child to match the items. I fully expected that someone might write in with the sad story of not being able to have children at all. Imagine how heart wrenching that would be when you have all those nice things you intended to pass on to them.
And I couldn’t let this comment from Jo slide into obscurity without it being noticed. It is true what she says which is evident from this post I wrote back in march, even though at times I probably come off as the clutter Nazi. Contrary to popular belief I am not a minimalist I just like to encourage people to declutter their excesses, shop responsible and recycle/rehouse what they can.
Fave Five Web Finds. Happy reading!
Lena thought we might all enjoy this link ~ The Burninghouse
This post from Miss Minimalist ~ One less thing fashion trends shows the fashion industry in a certain light that some may not have given much thought to.
This is just a short post from Happy Shiny Me ~ Handing over reins . I like the strategy she is going deploy to try to break her attachment to some of her clutter. It is not a new strategy but I like how she is enlisting her sister’s help to pull it off.
I loved this simple post for Bea at Zero Waste Home ~ Happy Spooning . I would love my local favourite curry takeout joint to give their customers the option to purchase Tiffin Carriers to collect their curry orders home in rather than waste plastic every time we eat there.

Today’s Declutter Item
These declutter items would have been appropriate for yesterday’s post. They were stray hand towels left over from bath towel sets gone by. I bet Deb J would like to get her hands on them, literally. I donated them to the thrift store for someone to get use out of because it could be another ten years before I ever needed them.
Something I Am Grateful For Today
I got to have a furry friend accompany me on my walk today. I was pet sitting a friends dog for the day because he had a little incident over the weekend and she just wanted me to make sure he was OK throughout the day while she was at work. I know she is probably more grateful than me but he is such good company I just had to take him for a walk. He seemed pretty grateful too. One favour, three happy individuals.
