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!
I loved this comment from Sanna, I knew straight away it belonged in my favourites. Sanna is doing her best to bring back the good old habit of sharing rather than owning and sharing what you do own. Good on you Sanna!
This comment from Eileen isn’t from this last week, I just happened upon it in the archives while checking something on Monday. I thought it was worth bringing to your attention again as it was a lovely example of decluttering together with loved ones.
Snosie had a good way of divesting herself of items she no needed at the end of and extended overseas stay in this comment. I have used this method myself while on vacation.
Lena tells us about the progress she is making when it comes to letting go a little when it comes to books in this comment.
And Hazel sure had some fine examples of the Pitfall 2 in her response to Cindy’s weekly wisdom post this week. I am sure we can all relate to this situation through experience.
Favourite Web Finds. Happy reading!
I liked this simple blog post from The Everyday Minimalist the message was simply put and uncomplicated.
While having a little browse around The Everyday Minimalist blog I found this little gem that I though was fabulous. The visuals made it all the more entertaining and real for me. Minimalist Comic ~ Stuff no one told me: The weight of things.
Here is a great but scary web link for those with children. It was brought to my attention by Kim Cameron_Webb through my 365 Facebook page. momshomeroom.msn.com ~ Is my kid entitled? How to tell.
Please take a look at this link and even sign up for the challenge if you think you are up for it. Even in this modern age women are often still the main caregivers and homemakers of the world. Maybe it is up to us to set the ground rules for responsible consumption and eco-friendly behaviours and I think we are up to the challenge. Lets see what you can do. 1 Million Women
I went over to The 7th Rock to wish Rakhee a happy blogiversary the other day and found this little gem while I was having a read there.~ George Carlins comedic routine on stuff. It’s hilarious and all too true.
Here is a fun little link sent to me by NatalieinCA that I couldn’t resists sharing with you. Keep scrolling down when you get there because there are all sorts of fun Christmas decorating ideas.

Today’s Declutter Item
This pile of clutter is the result of a little bit of an odds and ends declutter in my spice chest. No I don’t keep spices in there in case you were wondering. I keep batteries, bens, clips, eyeglasses and their accessories, candles for if the power goes out, blah blah blah. It is my version of a junk drawer only mostly it isn’t junk and it is organised.
Something I Am Grateful For Today
Discovering that making my our pizza dough isn’t so hard without a bread maker. I still cheated and used my electric mixer with the dough hooks but it all worked out just fine. I think maybe next time I should get a little more eco-friendly and do it by hand.
