On Fridays at 365 Less Things I share with you my favourite comments from my wonderful readers and my favourite web finds of the week. I hope you will enjoy them as much as I did.
Favourite Comments. Enjoy!
In this comment Melissa tells us about how just the right gift from her mother helped her declutter lots of related clutter.
And this comment also from Melissa proves that happy decluttering requires good communication.
I loved this declutter story from Megan S. Sometimes leaving things lying around can actually reduced clutter rather than add to it. Read about it here.
In this comment from Christine, she tells us about how a couple of homes away from home confirmed for her what she wants for the place she actually does call home.
CJ tells us about one small clutter vice he has and has committed to find a better way for the sake of his partner. Good luck CJ.
Ideealistin’s wise thoughts on declutter regrets.
I especially like the last sentence in this comment from Andréia.
Mel has recently discovered 365 Less Things and in this comment tells us about two methods she uses to help her reduce her belongings and why.
Favourite Web Finds. Happy reading!

I always love a good blog post about cleaning without chemicals, so here is one from onegoodthingbyjillee.com ~ The-countless-uses-for-baking-soda-besides-baking.
I think we have featured this article before but given Thursday’s blog topic it is worth a second look. Thank you Wendy F for reminding me of it.
Today’s Mini Mission
Empty, sort and clean out your cutlery drawer. In the last two houses I have lived in, the cutlery drawer has been right below the bread board. As a result crumbs get into the drawer. My children also had a tendency to go to this drawer for a pair of scissors to snip off the end of food packaging and then, as kids do, leave the snipped off piece in the drawer. Also twist ties and rubber bands tend to accumulate here. Being as we no longer eat much bread and the kids have left home I no longer have most of these problems. However this drawer still needs a good clean out every now and again.
Eco Tip For The Day
Don’t accept free promotional products that you have no use for. Accepting these just encourages the continuation of this practice while the environment would be healthier without the manufacture of cheap throwaway or needless items like these usually are.
It matters not how fast I go, I hurry faster when I’m slow
