At first I decided i'd be giving up nothing. But then after I really thought about it I realised this is a great opportunity to save some money.

So I am giving up..
the conditions:
i may buy food, drink (including alcohol.. bit of a cop out i know) & necessities for the house
i musn't buy toilettries, makeup, clothes, shoes and anything else along those lines


This is quite possibly going to be one of the hardest things i'v done in a while but I think at the end of it, it'll be worth it.

As most of you know i'm moving out and into my new flat next saturday. This is a big step and i'm not going to have a lot of money for myself as it is. What money I do have should be saved for a better cause right? Right!

Lent is the perfect excuse for me.. the money I save from not shopping is going to go towards finishing off my tattoo. I'v been meaning to get the money for this sorted for a little while now, this will give me the push to do so!

And so as of Wednesday 17th of February (ash wednesday) I will give up shopping.

Wish me luck!

What're you giving up for lent? & more importantly do you think you'll be able to do it?!

  1. Good Luck giving up shopping! Keep your finished tatt in mind and I'm sure you'll do it. Doubt I could though. I hadn't even thought about giving up anything but now you mention it..... I'll give up.....fizzy drinks and chocolate. Eeeek, but it needs to be done, want to lose a few pounds! x

    I gave up chocolate and sweets last year and managed to do it, after the first week of craving it I actually didn't feel like it for the rest of the time so I think I'm to give it up again this year
