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!
There is an important message in this comment from Joanna especially if you are not coping with issues on your own. Whatever they may be.
I had to add this comment from Becky in the hope that those of you who have had success convincing spouses to declutter might give her some advice.
Karen hit the nail on the head with one short sentence in this comment ~ “I has changed my brain.” I like that because it really somes up what needs to be done in order to do a proper declutter. You have to realign your thinking from being materialistic to being content with less. And who wouldn’t want to be content, right?
Like Karen above Nurchamiel has got to the point where she is letting go of book. To non-prolific readers that may not be a big deal but to book lovers it sure it. When they have honed their decluttering desire to include books they know they have reached a huge milestone. Read full comment here.
This comment from Calico ginger sums up the best of what slow and steady decluttering is all about.
I also liked what Ideealistin had to say in this comment. It shows that the best method of decluttering is an individual thing. Whatever it is that keeps you motivated to continue is a good thing.
Favourite Web Finds. Happy reading!
lifehacker.com ~ How to dig yourself out from leftover holiday clutter. Of course I think it is wiser to avoid the excess by requesting moderation during the holiday season but not everyone finds that option acceptable.
Alison sent me this link. Those of you who live in America might be interested in sending your cards on to be recycled ~ Ann’s Christmas Card Project
This link is to the blog of one of your fellow 365 readers, Joanna. The difficulty level of Joanna’s mission far excedes mine. Please give her some support. 365declutterchallenge ~ Moving out of a hoarders home, what does and doesn’t work.
My husband has been reading this blog recently and although I feel I ought to be a little insulted it ha inspired him to purge stuff I have been hoping he would get rid of for a long time. So thank you ~ www.theminimalists.com and I particularly liked this post ~ Failure but I think the one that spurred my hubby on was this one.
Today’s Declutter Item
This necklace was given to me by someone who had received it from someone else and now I have given it to the thrift shop. I wonder if someone will eventually wear it. I found it among my craft supplies.
Something I Am Grateful For Today
There has been a birthday in the household today (not mine) and it has been a very pleasant day. I may have gained a pound though after cooking Raisin Bread French Toast for breakfast, lunch out at a café, cooking nice fat steaks with sweet potato fries and sweet corn for dinner followed by sweet sticky syrup dumplings with lashings of cream. Mmmmmm.
