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!
Well done to Dizzy, she and her family have finally eaten through a freezer full of food clutter. Read here for the full details.
I love it when our posts here at 365 evoke ah ha moments for readers. Shirls tells us in this comment about how Tuesday’s post provided her with the ah ha moment she needed to move forward with some closet clutter she had been hanging on to.
I received this comment from Melissa, on Thursday and was amused by her label for single use gadgets. Check it out. This was Melissa’s first comment, the first of many I hope.
I know there were probably lots more great comments this week but my week has been derailed by a small family crisis so I haven’t been as attentive to my blog as I would have liked. Thank you everyone who has shared there opinions, tips and stories with us. I always appreciate them even when I can’t get to respond. If my darling son would stop getting involved in accidents my life would run more smoothly. He is fine, no major injury this time except he managed to break just the wrong bone in his wrist which required surgery.

In case you missed it on my 365 Facebook page last week here is a wonderful link I just had to share with you. ~ http://tedxtalks.ted.com/video/TEDxSF-Louie-Schwartzberg-Gratitude
I discovered this site via my twitter account and, although it isn’t the usual kind of site I link to, I felt compelled to share it with you all. It isn’t so much the limited information within the body of the site but, oddly enough, the ads in the margins that is imporatant. All these ads point you to organisations who recycle computers or resell refurbished computers. Therefore, for its sustainability function I have linked to it here. ~ www.recycle-computers.com
Cindy sent me this link to share with you this week. It is an interesting and thought provoking read, enjoy! ~ www.guardian.co.uk ~ The path to happiness: it is better to give than receive
This next link is to an online store that specialises in reusable products to reduce waste. I don’t usually link to retail sites but this one had some interesting products. Thank you Snosie for suggesting it. She bought some of the produce bags to help her avoid plastic bags at the supermarket. I believe Ann uses the same bags and has made her own version. I also altered some bags I already had at home made of thin gauzy material to make my own bags. Here is the link ~ www.reuseit.com
Today’s Declutter Item
This is another of those things I had too many off. I have kept a few in case the power goes out but this one didn’t make the cut.
Something I Am Grateful For Today
I finally got to eat two of my homegrown strawberries today. It’s not that I haven’t grown more but the slugs usually get to them before I do. I really only planted them as a ground cover so I don’t begrudge the slugs for having a feed. I am just grateful they finally left me a couple. Yes I could put slug pellets down but I don’t like stuff like that in my garden.
