I present to you 102 things to give up for Lent. I stretched every muscle in my brain to come up with this list for you. Now you absolutely have NO excuse that you “can’t think of what to give up for Lent” because I DID ALL THE THINKING FOR YOU. And my head hurts now.

What you should really give up (or take up) for Lent:

  1. Snacking between meals.
  2. Trivia Crack.
  3. Plumber’s crack.
  4. Instagram filters.
  5. Being a backseat driver.
  6. Listening to music in the car.
  7. Texting and driving.
  8. Making out.
  9. Using emojis to avoid talking about your true feelings.
  10. Talking about true feelings through text instead of in person.
