giving up, or adding in

today is ash wednesday, the first day of lent, a day of repentance.

some people give up something for lent - a certain food or beverage, or a habit they wish to change.  sarah of clover lane wrote about her 40 bags in 40 days challenge.  during lent, every day, you get rid of a bag of stuff - outgrown, unused, unloved, unwanted stuff - from your home.

i've also heard of people adding something to their lives during lent.  some people plan to read their bible every day.  others add exercise, or choose to eat healthier.  all are wonderful goals.

in the past i've given up soda or chips for lent.  one year i gave up swearing (yeah, that didn't last long.  i should try that again).  some years, i didn't give anything up.

i'm considering the 40 bags in 40 days challenge.  lord knows all the clutter and junk i have in my house.  plus it would give me a leg up on this year's yard sale.

what are you giving up, or adding in, for lent this year?
