40 days and 40 nights of no shopping… That’s right, I gave up shopping for Lent. People seem shocked to learn that I have given up one of my favorite activities for this 40 day period, but when I was looking in my closet the other day I realized I really don’t need anything. Now, I am not saying there won’t be challenging moments… I’m sure I’ll be craving a new dress or bag when I get an email about a sale at my favorite store, but I will be forced to create new and different outfits from the existing items in my closet.
I did have a moment of weakness though… When most people are indulging in chocolate, fried donuts and plenty of beverages on Fat Tuesday, I indulged in shoes. Since I decided that giving up shopping would be a difficult challenge, I ordered 2 pairs of shoes on Fat Tuesday… Whoops. Well, they were on sale. J So, I guess my new shoes will need to keep me happy until after Easter.
