While I was not raised with the practice of giving up something for Lent and I don't consider myself particularly religious, three years ago I attempted to give up clutter for Lent. As you can see, that attempt did not go too well so I'm at it again.
I'm not a stickler so I will start today. Fat Tuesday be damned! No time like the present! My plan is to get rid of at least one item per day, even as small as a piece of paper like a receipt. This may not sound like it would make a difference but I find that one item usually leads to another... and so on... and so on...
Five years ago I gave up meat (just to see if I could) and I'm still a vegetarian. Hey, maybe this will stick too!
Wish me luck!
