Last year in January, we had a “buying ban“ which meant we weren’t allowed to shop for anything except for the necessities for the whole month. The idea being to cut back on “consumerism“, be more thoughtful about one’s purchases and yes! to save money too! This year I totally forgot about it but was reminded by it on the @younghouselove blog today. So I’m a bit late this year but I think it would be a good practice for #lent which starts on Tuesday. Do you give up something over the Lent period? (On a side note I‘m glad I’m only starting on Tuesday as I couldn’t resist this cute basket from Flying Tiger).
