For Lent I am giving up shopping. This should be interesting for someone who feels an inexplicable draw to the mall. I find the western materialism out of control and disturbing and yet I'm right there with the next person running to the sale or to buy the latest "in" color. I don't need anything and neither do my kids. So, until Easter, I am going to put a stop to the unnecessary spending. I don't need black shoes, or any other colour for that matter. I have enough scarves to last a lifetime. Even Emmi who is only 6 months old has more clothes than she can ever possibly wear. So, no more shopping.
PS. On a side note, this is the year that I am going to start early enough with the Easter grass:)
