Lent Week 1: Buy Generic



Budgeting is part and parcel of running a household but we all have items that we prefer not to buy in generic brands. For some its tissues or toilet paper and others cheese or bread.

Almsgiving challenge:

This Lent, buy generic brands for everything. After each shopping trip calculate the money you’ve saved and deposit this money into a Project Compassion box, or set aside and donate to your preferred charity at the end of Lent.

For more on budgeting for your family read our articles on meal planning and budgeting for a few helpful hints.
