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!
I loved this comment in response to Cindy’s post this week. Wendy F has a great way to combat to-do forgetfulness in this comment. Don’t do what I do though Wendy F when I only leave a small note and then don’t remember what I meant by it. Damn early onset Dementia ~ not really, but it sure feels that way some days. Like when I made two first cups of coffee the other morning and then later went to the supermarket only to realise I had left my wallet at home.
I don’t often post my own comments here but I felt this one added something to the conversation.
There were so many great comments generated from Moni’s post this week but this one from Deb J left me feeling appalled at the ridiculousness of some neighbourhood bi-laws. Of all the places in the world where dryers should almost be completely unnecessary Arizona must be somewhere near the top of the list. I know some owner corporations (particularly in high-rise apartment buildings) frown on the ugliness of clothes flapping from balconies but seriously who disallows people from hanging clothes behind a fence in their back yards.
Favourite Web Finds. Happy reading!
Here is a short but thought provoking post from The Minimalists.
Do you hoard your new underwear? I will let Grethen Rubin explain this one to you in this blog post.
I loved this post from Annienygma because it is something I do often.
Here is another thought provoking link shared with me by Cindy.
My ego forced me to add this link from Budgets Are Sexy.
I also liked what Peter Walsh had to say in the short video.
Today’s Mini Mission
Did you have more than enough wine glasses for your liquid Christmas cheer. If so declutter the ones that you avoided using because you don’t like them so much. My daughter bought me the ones I mentioned I wanted in a post prior to Christmas. She was only too happy to claim the ones I have but don’t like.
Eco Tip Of The Day
Fans merely move air around which helps keep you cool by evaporating sweat. Leaving them on after you vacate the room does not keep the room cool, in fact the power necessary to run a fan can slightly increase the temperature in the room. (Read more here) Save electricity buy turning off the fan when you leave the room and aren’t coming straight back.
