'tis the season of Lent.
Every year, just like last year, I give up chocolate for Lent.
This year, I am going to shake things up a bit and aim for a slightly more substantial goal. I am jumping on Simply Lovely's spending hiatus.
For Lent I am giving up empty needless spending.
For the next 6 weeks, I will only be spending money on the essentials.
What are the essentials?
Essential is probably different for everyone.
For me, a spending hiatus means latte's made at home not out on the town, no new sweaters, avoiding the endcaps at Target, no craft supplies, and no mindless spending.
I am attempting to use what we have and be more mindful of where our money goes.
No shopping for comfort.
I hope this journey will give me clarity in decision making, allow me to save money, give me wisdom and increase my faith.
May God guide my path.
Are you giving up anything for Lent?
