I am not Catholic, but every now and then I decide that giving something up wouldn't be a bad idea. In 2004, I gave up meat, and I didn't eat any meat (other than fish) again until the Great Burger of 2006. Last year I tried to give up candy during work hours. I think I lasted about 30 days.
This year Lent is apart of my Go Big or Go Home 2011 Plan of Action, remember this?:
I can't tell you how much this sucks. The fat return we got last year is going directly back to the government this year plus some.
So, in honor of Lent and Go Big or Go Home 2011, I am giving up my Credit Card. Hopefully, for good. I've made great strides this year to get it paid off, but every now and the I use it 'just in case.' Now, I want it to going away. Far far away. All Credit Cards (yes, I have multiple), will now be left securely at home at all times.
Wish me luck. Has anyone ever frozen a Credit Card??
Or if you really want, send cash. Just kidding, kinda.
Are you giving up something for Lent?
