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!
This comment from Ideealistin came in too separate parts. Here and here. Don’t miss the part where she is telling us that she has a beautiful new baby daughter. 50 isn’t such and old age but I feel like I am watching some of my younger readers growing up. Congratulation Ideealistin, life will be very different from this point forward.
Rebecca B. A. R. has a great suggestion as to where to donate unwanted suitcases in this comment. Great idea Rebecca. Those precious children can do with whatever moral boost they can be given. A suitcase isn’t just a place to store clothes in this situation.
Moni shares with us a good tip for keeping kitchen drawers tidy in this comment.
I loved this comment from Grace from Brazil. She was good enough to set herself as an example of “this is what you should not do” to emphasise the message in Cindy’s post. Good on you Grace!
I don’t know how I missed this comment from Moni the first time around but I was lucky to find it when writing up todays post. Another Moni classic.
Favourite Web Finds. Happy reading!

Today’s Mini Mission
Round up, declutter and organise hair accessories ~ These tend to end up scattered all over the place making them impossible to find when you need them. They end up in school bags, handbags, bathroom drawers, bedside cabinets, in the little nooks and crannies in the car, sports/gym bags, coat pockets and even under the sofa cushions.
Eco Tip For The Day
Use lists to save fuel. As you think of errands you need to run during your week jot them down. Then arrange them in sequential order for economy of time and driving.
It matters not how fast I go, I hurry faster when I’m slow
