    I'm giving up excessive unnecessary spending, which includes clothes, gadgets/technology, and excessive spending on food and drink/eating out...

    pretty much this. the money/time saved will go to charity at the end.

    How 3rd world oriented of you [​IMG]



    I know its clichÃ[​IMG], but I gave up practicing or believing in religion about 15 years ago for lint, and haven't missed it since. Prolonged abstinence either makes you realize how much you miss something, or how little something really mattered to you in the first place.

    Giving up being my normal self! This Lent I'm going to try to be introspective and examine how to be a better person.

    This year I'm not giving anything up, just committing to an extra weekly shift of voluntary work in the community homeless kitchen.

    But tonight we are the ones getting fed - yay for Pancake Tuesday!!
