Follow up on giving it up
You know it really does save money. I am amazed at how much it saves.
And while I would usually not be too enthused about having Minestrone three days in a row, it is actually best on the third day!
The question now is whether or not I can keep it up. I always find myself enthusiastically throwing myself into something new only to lapse and return to my old habits a month or so down the line. God willing this Lenten discipline will turn into a new habit that honors our household budget and continues to raise awareness in our family that food is a precious commodity. There are far too many food insecure people in my own community and because of that we surely shouldn't be throwing food out.
