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!
New reader Sarah tells us her story in the comment. Welcome Sarah.
I really appreciated this vote of confidence from Jo H.
Loved this little story that Megan S had to share with us. The lady involved was both old and wise.
Jen had some interesting things to say in this comment on both having less clothes and the accumulating of clutter for comfort reasons.
Favourite Web Finds. Happy reading!

Today’s Mini Mission
Declutter old clothing that fitted with your previous life that are now no longer needed. This could be sports uniforms, work clothing, clothes that no longer fit, clothing that is inappropriate to the climate you now live in, clothing that is inappropriate for your age, maternity clothing if you have no intentions of having more children…
Eco Tip for the Day
When trying something new like a new sport or a new hobby, consider starting out with secondhand, hired or borrowed equipment and only graduate to your own personalised items (should you feel the need) once you are sure you will continue.
