I always think long and hard about what to "give up" for Lent, and I've been racking my brain in the attempts to find something unique and different for 2014...I've done some hard fasting in year's past--alcohol, sweets, fast food, etc--but obviously those things are small in the grand scheme of things. Sure, living without my dessert was probably the hardest one, but this year's challenge is going to be a tough one for me. (yes, I'm admitting it publicly so I can hold myself accountable)
I first read about the 1 Year Wardrobe Resolution a few weeks ago via Instagram, and I was immediately hooked.

So, how does this relate to my Lent sacrifice?? Well, she posed a mini-challenge for people to take part in and I am jumping on the bandwagon. For the next 40 days, I won't buy myself anything...no ifs, ands, or buts about it. I will learn to appreciate what I already have and will "make it work" when it comes to dressing, or buying things I don't need, but just want.
Anybody out there crazy enough to take this challenge with me???
What are you giving up for Lent this year??
