It was another big week for comments this week which makes it hard to narrow it down to just five but these are the ones I chose. Sorry if yours didn’t make it but it was probably on the short list.

Five posts I enjoyed reading this week. There aren’t many directly about decluttering but there is more to the attitude of decluttering other than stuff.
The Personal Excellence Blog – Cultivate-a-good-habit-in-21-days
Good News Network.org – Ocean-plastic-patch-exaggerated Thanks to Cindy for letting me know about this link. It is nice to have soom good news about the environment for a change.
Becoming Minimalist – The-hidden-power-of-humility
My Zero Waste – Decluttering-zero-waste
Zen Habits – 5 Ways to lose your stuff – (Not your lover) I know this is going to be a must read for some of my dedicated declutterers out there.
Today’s Declutter Item
These were a batch of old posters I stumbled upon by accident when I went to mat some artwork. Sadly that says a lot about how often I use my mat cutter but we will ignore that for now. These went in the recycling bin.
Things I am grateful for today
- The floods in Brisbane did not get as high as they feared they might.
- No more dental appointments for Liam for a while.
- A cool afternoon breeze.
- We had a foot long Blue Tongue Lizard visit us in our garage today – it remains to be seen if he has moved in permanently or not.
- Another load of stuff went to the thrift store today.
It matters not how fast I go, I hurry faster when Iâ€™m slow.
