Favourite Web Finds. Happy reading!
I watch YouTube videos while I am ironing. It almost makes ironing enjoyable and at least it seems to get finished quicker. Anyway this video is one I stumbled upon that I thought you would all enjoy.
Here is an interesting post from mnmlist.com – Minimalism isn’t just for the affluent
I likes this post so I thought I would throw it in here to see if you could find a way to apply it to your decluttering decision making.
Here is some good advice from Leo at Zen Habits on starting new good habits.
And here is another video that I really enjoyed. Although it isn’t directly related to clutter, the basis of the talk could certainly relate to putting off decluttering even though you would feel better for it. I think I will have to come up with a blog post that relates one to the other.
Today’s Mini Mission
Declutter something purely kept for memory’s sake ~ Perhaps a souvenir or some other sentimental item.
Today’s Declutter Item
This flour sifter had more sentimental value than use. It used to be my grandmothers but that wasn’t reason enough to keep it. It was donated to the thrift store. And just to make a point on how people evolve while they are decluttering take a look at this blog post I wrote on day 258 of my original declutter challenge.
Eco Tip for the Day
When sending parcels do your best to use recycled packaging. Retail stores are great places to pick up boxes and packing materials for free. My hardware store has big cages full of boxes right at the check out. I go there when I need boxes to mail eBay sales.
