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 Ingrid’s success story . Her advice to stop shopping is the best I can give anyone if they want to get and stay uncluttered. Well done Ingrid.
Valerie has just begun her declutter journey please give her some encouragement. The past is in the past Valerie, it is onwards and upwards from here.
Here is a wonderful comment from Stephanie who is in the middle of decluttering things passed down to her from lost loved ones. She has such a wonderful attitude to letting go which has turned full circle from her days of hanging on. Decluttering is all about the attitude and only you can determine that.
Here is a comment from Gen who is reading through the 365 archives. She tells us how she is letting go of sentimental clutter in the form or cards, letters and the like. She has found a good way to preserve the items that mean the most while letting go of the ones only kept out of habit.
I enjoyed the two stories Maggie shared with us in this comment. One of the good old days when the simple things in life were the norm. And the other of her recent trip to the beach where 365 advice was in her head when it came to souvenirs.
Favourite Web Finds. Happy reading!
Here is a link that is more about financial smarts than about clutter but if we were all this smart with money clutter would be out of the question. Oh to be so financially switched on at such a young age.
This post has a write up about the NY Times article I linked to last week but it is the video ~ Clear the clutter to sell your house ~ that I wanted to share with you. The videos I am referring to is the first one to appear. Some of the other videos are interesting. There are also some other links includes in the article that are worth a look.
I love the lead-in to this article about the miscellaneous kitchen drawer. The points made are great too of course, especially number 3) Be decisive – most clutter is unmade decisions.
Here is a decluttering post written by Jane Harries, one of our fellow 365ers. Take a read and leave her some encouragement. Also take a look at this little cartoon she found on Facebook. I thought it was amusing yet makes a good point.
I stumbled upon this article while looking for something else but how ingenious, resourceful yet simple is this solution to a problem.
Declutter your need for instant knowledge is the advice in this blog post from mnmlist.com
Today’s Mini Mission
Declutter some books ~ I know I mention this one often but it was bought to my attention again this week when I received an email from one of my readers that has been with me form way back. She has managed to declutter one third of her sizeable book collection over the last twelve months. Rachel has been slowing decluttering in preparation for a downsize move. She has finally made the move and is now decluttering more as she settles in to her new home.
Today’s Declutter Item
I didn’t have any books to declutter as per today’s mini mission but I do have something in the paper product category. These photo mats were excess to my needs so I packaged them up and sent them off to the thrift store.
Something I Am Grateful For Today
Just another uneventful yet pleasant day with the anticipation of a lovely dinner with friends to finish it off with.
