Guess what…. today is the LAST DAY OF LENT!! Woooo hooo.
I gave up shopping this year and it sure has been tough. But I’ve survived – no eBay, no shoes, no clothes, no nail varnish – life was pretty hard.
But now comes the good bit…. I can decide what I want to do with all the money I’ve saved. I think it probably works out at about £150 for the 40 days so I’ve decided to put all of it toward my dream – Find Me Charity. It’s a charity shop I’m starting up, and I’m trying to put aside a little bit of money each month towards it so when I graduate and start working on it full time I’ll have some capital lined up. This money is going to make a huge difference to the size of that pot, and I’m so proud of myself for making it this far.

You can also see a Find Me photoshoot sneak preview here.
I hope you agree this is a good way to spend the money – much more sensible than just blowing it on something expensive.
Having said that… I will be posting a celebratory ‘charity shop haul’ post asap from a mammoth Ashley Road charity shopping trip tomorrow.
