I’m miriam, and I’m sharing my Lenten discipline is giving away a bag every one of Lent’s forty days. Starting on Ash Wednesday, February 17, I’ll post a bag that’s available free. This year, I request shipping if you can afford it. If you can’t, that’s cool. Follow me for forty days of bag giveaways ending on April 4, 2021. everything left over goes to dress for success and street ministry.
If you see a bag you like in a post dated between February 17, 2021, and April 4, 2021, email me at email@example.com.

Here’s a sample:

If a bag doesn’t say TAKEN, it’s still up for grabs.
Rules subject to change but not subject to be unfair.
So here we are going through our second pandemic Lent. I’ll still be here every day giving away a bag. I couldn’t thrift since the last giveaway, so you’ll see several bags I thought I’d never give up. Never say never.
Typically, I love to thrift and often find quality, high-end items for pennies on the dollar. Since March 2020, I’ve discovered online thrifting. thredup is excellent resale for finding bags you like and are willing to $$$. Thankfully, you can return many things, but not bags. Other online retailers who sell secondhand don’t permit returns. I get it.
David and our three daughters frequently benefit from my willingness to go through racks of stuff at Goodwill or St. Vincent de Paul’s.
