I am constantly searching for ways to save money. Since it’s the Lenten Season, my Mom, some friends and I have decided to give up a few things. During Lent, I am only drinking water, I am not eating certain protein items, nor dairy products during the week. It’s amazing how much money I have saved, how much energy I have gained, and surprisingly, I have even lost a few pounds in the process. Even if you are not the most religious person in the world, I am sure that you can think of at least one thing that you can give up between now and Easter that can save you a few dollars along the way.
