Discombobulated By Blogging, Yet Again

I am back only a day and I am blown away by how much the blogosphere has become so commercialized while I was away.........all of less than 3 months = complete discombobulation!

I mean seriously all of the honest connections I had are now gone =0(

This makes me feel all alone in the world wide web. I honestly came back because.... well yes because, yes, I received a pay check that I did not know was coming and thought, to myself, if I could understand exactly what I was doing, maybe, just maybe I could make more money........

And then while trying to reconnect I see that I was not the only one that left. Though some I can not comprehend the abandonment as they were "making bank". Others I see were on the same ship I was sailing and wanted to wade the wanters for a raft to come by, being this ship was over populated.

Needless to say the ocean scenario keeps me a float......

As much as this aggravates me I feel like a hypocrite! I am coming back for the money....or lack there of;
  • I am coming back because my links are still being clicked.
  • I am coming back because people are still liking me. 
  • I am coming back for money. 
  • I am coming back because I am thought of. 
  • I am coming back because I missed this. 
  • I am coming back because it is what I know. 
  • I am coming back because of money.
I made a dime and I want to cash in.

The very thing that is commercializing this atmosphere and fueling my frustrations, is what I came back for. However I am different!

  • I will not link something I do not like
  • I will not suggest something I would not buy
  • I will not recommend something I do not believe in
  • I will not allow compensation to compromise my opinion
  • I will give honest reviews
  • My opinions will remain my own!
I will not change me for you or anyone else! I am who I am and I love Him for all of me!

I Am Back!

Just when you thought it was over, you turn a corner and see me standing there. Yes I am back and blogging again.....

As I shared in my "final" post, I wasn't following the savings steps I was preaching therefore felt guilty and convicted of being someone I was not....the very thing I hated about blogging all together. However over the past few months I have come to realize, that Prudent Wisdom isn't about practicing what I preach.

Being Prudent is to be careful and practical, a way of practicing common sense....I was reaching too high.

And Wisdom is to utilize knowledge, experience and understanding.....I may not be the wisest of all fools but I do have the ability to think.

Together Prudent Wisdom is nothing more than one carefully traveling through the journeys of life and sharing each experience in the search of understanding. Whether it be through clipping coupons or pinching pennies being prudent is the way I survive.

So here I stand, well actually sit with a keyboard in my hand, I don't have this it all figured out just yet;

  • I've lost contacts with affiliates
  • I've Disconnected links
  • I left self hosting and came back to blogger
  • I also lost some great posts
But that is just part of the journey!

A lot has changed from the very beginning of this blog, as of now;
  • I have a full time job, in which I love!
  • My hubs has 2 full time jobs, in which he loves!
  • We have 3 kids in school
  • Our oldest is in high school and ready to drive
Needless to say I haven't had time to clip coupons however, I have found some other frugal ways to save money and can't wait to share them with you.

Until then.............

DIY Water Sprinkle??

Our sprinkler has bitten the dust and the kids are having withdraws  The hose pipe alone just isn't the same and there is only so much they can do in a swimming pool ;-)

But during my visit with Pinterest I found the wonderful? diy sprinkler made out of a 2 liter bottle and duck tape.

Well it looked wonderful in their pic any way =0/

This is what my pic looks like;
HA HA!!

The directions called to gather a 2 liter bottle and a roll of duck tape.
and your hose pipe of course ;-)

 Take a knife and stab one side of the bottle

 Line the hose pipe up just right to the 2 liter bottle

Turn on the water and have fun

However it wasn't very fun =0(

LOL I should have know that anything with duck tape was not going to be a simple challenge.

UPDATE: Homemade Laundry Detergent

Back in November I wrote a post on Homemade Laundry Detergent, I must confess that I had been using the detergent for 3 months before I wrote the post being I wanted to make sure that it was something Prudent Wisdom worthy.

I didn't want to write a post on something that I did not believe in or use myself ;-)

I also had studied several recipes on Pinterest, therefore, I had to tweak this recipe to my satisfaction in order to share it with you to avoid any false advertisements =0)

So on to the UPDATE.........

I just ran out of detergent =-O

Yep that's right my original recipe lasted my family an entire 7 months!!!

In referring to my last post I saw that I did not post the cost savings.....Shame on ME =0( But with help from Amazon I am going to give you a rough estimate now;

Now you know I DID NOT pay these prices being I shop frugally and with qps, that is why this is ONLY a rough estimate!

Even so Less than $30 has provided my family of 5 laundry detergent for longer than a year. I will have to post an update every time I make a batch, we will see the final cost savings at the time I run out of ingredients. Which by my calculations I should be able to make 4 more batches before I run out of Arm & Hammer. At the rate of 1 batch every 7 months I'm not going to run out for................3 1/2 yrs?!?!

YEA BA-BY!!!!

UUUMMMMM that's $.72 a month for Laundry detergent...CHA-CHING!!!!!!

OH WOW I AM SOOOOOOO EXCITED!!

What about you? Are you excited too? Are you making your own laundry detergent? I bet you will now ;-)

How Does your Garden Grow?

Many years ago when I had room for a garden, I utilized the space as much as possible by companion gardening. We (my hubs and I) had so much fun and a lot of success with it. Our garden became a happy hobby for us or blissful chore if you will.

Since we have moved....5yrs ago....to a smaller lot of land I have given container gardening a try and yielded no success. I have even tried the hanging gardens, which is now an on going joke in the Prudent Wisdom house. Either I would drown the plants or dry them out. The last of our "crop" was lost during the war with the Ants.

UGH!

I had almost given up.....ALMOST!

With much anticipation and prayer....yes I have prayed about my garden....I have decided to build a raised bed garden! Against my hubs wished I have mapped our a plan and researched the following scenarios;

  • Succession Plantin
  • Companion Planting
  • SqFt Gardening
As much as I would like to give succession planting and sqft gardening a try, I believe I had better stick to what I know and that is companion planting. Especially since I don't like to use chemicals or pesticides.

Though, I am branching our and trying a few new things such as different kinds of vegetables like;

  • carrots
  • radishes
  • zucchini
  •  summer cabbage
  • sunflowers
My children are on board and can not wait to get started. I am so glad because with everything going on in this house, I am quite certain this garden is going to be the best therapy we can afford ;-)


Tell me how does your garden grow?

Can You Freeze Candy??

Of course you can!!

As a matter of fact I do it every year and haven't bought my own candy in 2 years!

I, myself, thought this was an "old" savvy tip and never thought any less of it. My mom told me this secret years ago. She revealed to me that she would often freeze some of our Halloween candy and use it to stuff our stockings at Christmas.

GENIUS!!

However this year, when I spilled the beans about "my" secret and the Easter candy we hid for our egg hunt. The entire room gasped......even my Grandmother???

"What??" They all shouted

My Uncle made the comment that he wasn't eating what we brought, my aunt snooted her nose and my grandmother,  MY GRANDMOTHER.....I thought she would be proud of me.....Gave me a lecture about how chocolate changes colors.

At this point my hubs stepped in and backed me up on this ingenious idea (I LOVE that man) and vouched that we haven't seen our chocolate change colors. Not to say that it hasn't but it's still good!

Needless to say I was still astonished about the situation by the time we got home that evening and to be sure my mother didn't lie to me....being she didn't back me up......I Googled the idea. I found out that I am not the only "genius" in the world ;-) Infact I found several sites that list more information than I imagined there would be.

Such as:

"Most candy doesn't need to be frozen. 
Sugar is a natural preservative and there's not much else in hard candy."

The Nap Time Chef actually did a taste test comparing frozen candy verses room temp candy.

Fox News even published a report on What to do with left over Halloween candy. Stating:
"Have you ever had a frozen Snickers bar? 
They are delicious, and will taste a lot better if you save them for a time
 when you aren’t candied-out from trick-or-treating."


And this Special Report on how to Make the Most of your Halloween Candy even gives you a chart to go by:

Halloween candy tips

So you see FAMILY and friends you can indeed freeze your left over candy from this year whether it is from Easter, Halloween, Christmas or even Valentines. In fact you can catch those clearance sales this year and be life of the party next year ;-)

Now tell me have you ever frozen candy? or are there other ways to save your left overs?

Animal Control, Animal Response, Animal Care

Are you an animal lover?

Have you ever considered volunteering at an animal shelter?

Did you know it could be a project for the WHOLE family?

The boyz and I have been volunteering at our local Animal Control shelter since Christmas. No we have not been cleaning out pens, picking up poop or even have had the pleasure of feeding them but, we have been playing with them.

Did you know that a simple visit with these animals can help prepare them for when their new family comes to get them?

Yep that's right you don't even have to get them out of their pens, just a simple pet with your fingers through the fence does more than you can ever imagine. This is something I learned on our first visit to the Animal Control Shelter. With middle man being a little rowdy and baby boy being a little too young I knew we were limited on what we could do. Yet the officer explained the importance of the animals becoming familiar with human visitors other than the workers.

Which makes since if you think about it; Who wants to adopt an animal that is terrified of them or even fearless of them??

So for several months that was our mission, to play with dogs and cats of all kind to show them the love they are forever seeking. But the greatest joy we received is when we posted these pics on my FB profile;






Three of these babies were placed in loving homes within 48hrs of our post. These dogs have a place in my heart forever and I can only pray that the others will find loving homes very soon. Until then WE will enjoy their company!

Be looking for future posts about our family project. Though our local Animal Control facility is a kill shelter the employees go to great lengths to avoid it, so my boyz and I are going to help!

Now I encourage you to get up and go check out your local facility then tell us about your experience......are you looking to adopt? or share the love?
