As a Catholic, I’ve always become familiar with Ash Wednesday, the beginning of the Lenten season. I’m not very extreme in my religion, but I do give up meat on Fridays (and Ash Wednesday), attend church and give up something that I am shamelessly addicted to for 40 days.
This year, I’m giving up soda. Simple sounding but seriously, that stuff gets me through my workday!
In addition to giving up one thing, I’m also LIMITING my fun money spending to $30/week. This includes coffee shop purchases, craft shop purchases, clothing, hair, etc.
I usually allot myself $50/week to spend however the heck I want, but that extra $20/week will go to the church instead. I’m sure they’ll spend it much better than I would have.
I also hope my Crafting it Forward project brings a few smiles during the Lenten season to my readers. Today is the last day to enter for that!
What are you doing during the Lenten season?
