Some reflections on lent

I made a commitment to not buy any clothes during lent, therefore I am worried about the Salvation Army's bottom line.

I have gone by exactly 5 Salvation Army's since Ash Wednesday, most likely all of them would have gotten some of my money. Today, we went by several more thrift stores, this is going to be a huge sacrifice! More than I thought....oh, I miss Unique, Village, Goodwill, and Salvation Army already.

You would LOVE the used clothing markets here...clothes for 5 meticais ($0.20). It's hard not to get carried away spending and gaining a wardrobe bigger than when I was in the States for those prices. Of course, part of the lure and fun is in the searching.
