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!
Here is a lovely story from Tam who made a lot of people happy with her donation of craft supplies.
Jane had an opinion on gifts inspired by Deb’s post on Thursday
Juhli also had something to say on the subject of gift giving/receiving. http://www.365lessthings.com/thursdays-with-deb-j-gifts-of-cheer/#comment-58260
Andréia gives the facts on how few gadgets one needs in the kitchen.
Also received and email from one of the lovely ladies on was on tour with in Ireland. Here is what she said…
Have been thinking a lot about you lately and wanted to say “thank-you”. I checked out your 365 Less Things Blog and you reminded me of things I used to do decades ago when the kids were little. I’ve been following your de-clutter suggestions and WOW do I feel better!!! I’ve even gotten my husband* into the act. If we’re sitting watching a football game or whatever, we’re going through old files, the piles, etc. and cleaning out. Mucho thanks. (*Husbands name removed for privacy reasons)
Favourite Web Finds. Happy reading!
Here is an article from Courtney Carver to think about as we approach the silly season
I am sure you will all be able to relate this next article from Mike Burns to your decluttering efforts.
Here is a link to a survey on disorganisation. It is for US or Canadian citizens, take it if you like.
Oh good gracious me, yet another ridiculous unitasker from Unclutterer.com
Here is a great article form Unclutterer.com if you feel that you are a bit organising deficient in the paper filing department.
And here is an article I enjoyed from The Minimalists. I agree with his philosophy but when I can find exactly what I need I do a little more investigating to see if I can get it at a discount.
Today’s Mini Mission
Declutter any stationery items that are overstocked in your home. Especially if they were purchased for their novelty factor. Cute pens, pencils, erasers, notebooks, thumb tacks, paperclips etc. ~ You may think this is an odd thing to suggest but you might be surprised at how often inexpensive items such as these are purchased when they aren’t needed.
