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!
Marianne explains the benefits of slow and steady decluttering in this comment.
Lucinda has had some insight recently as to what living with much less is like. Read about how it has inspired her here.
This comment is also from Lucinda. I love that even though she feels her home is still quite cluttered she doesn’t sound negative about it.
Sanna tells us in this comment how having less stuff is working out for her.
I like Michelle’s method of making sure her indoor tools and her garage tools don’t end up in the wrong place.
Favourite Web Finds. Happy reading!
“Here is a link to a recycling site in the UK which recycles not only old video cassette cases but also the tape. They also do audio cassettes and CDs. You have to pay postage, but it makes me feel less guilty about throwing them away! Maybe there are similar sites elsewhere too? http://www.ems-europe.co.uk/services/domestic-tape-disc/ ” ~ Jane
Moni sent this link. I have to admit I did get sidetracked into looking at some wonderful cleverly designed home ideas for about half an hour. Please do read the article though and try not to get too excited about the pretty stuff. 😉
http://midwaysimplicity.com/how-to-have-a-life-full-of-experiences/ This was a good post from Tohami at Midway Simplicity. I have read his latest eBook ~ The P.A.S. Technique ebook ~ and am suitably impressed. I will write a Saturday post on that soon.
I loved this link sent to me by Cindy. If I ever find a Fixer’s Collective like this in my area I am in.
Today’s Mini Mission
Declutter some pantry or refrigerator items that you used once for a recipe but have not found a use for since. I think the ingredients, that tonight I will pass on to my daughter when she comes for dinner, may actually have been bought by her while she was living here recently. Of course I enjoyed her cooking for me, but she is more experimental with her cooking than I could be bothered with, so she is more likely to use these items than I.
Eco Tip For The Day
Save water and electricity ~ Think twice about how often you really need to wash your clothes and linens. Underpants and perhaps socks are the only clothing item the really need to be washed after one use. Most other clothing items are usually clean and fresh enough to wear twice unless badly soiled the first time round or if the weather is extremely warm and/or humid. Sheets need only be washed once a week at most while towels can last up to a week provided they are air dried between use.
It matters not how fast I go, I hurry faster when I’m slow
