Stock Piling

Learned through the Grocery Game stockpiling is basically building your own Grocery store at home. By saving the most money you buy your items at mass quantity at rock bottom prices while the sale trend is running, so that when the sale ends you are not stuck with buying your items at premium prices. By stockpiling you barely run out of things to carry, eliminating frequent runs to the grocery store for "odds and ends".
Sale trends are run by category therefore it often takes up to 12 weeks to get a well rounded stock pile. Most sales go on for 3 weeks at a time and some sale trends are categorized seasonally. This is why I do not post all the sales in which the stores are running, giving you more bang for your buck. Building up an adequate stock pile takes time and will only happen over period of time being that not every item will be on both stockpile and need lists for your family at the same time. Which then leads to the very reason to stockpile coupons.
Collecting an abundant amount of coupons allows you to build your stock pile more efficiently allowing you flexibility to donate to food organizations in your area such as local churches, non profit organizations and contributions to school activities. I myself have a family of 5 therefore I buy 6 newspapers a week giving me 1 coupon per family member and 1 to donate, in accordance to an officiant stock pile you should have 1 item per family member. Buying at rock bottom prices allows me to buy for each of my family members and 1 to donate, hence the 5 papers. This is also the most frugal way to achieve an adequate stock pile rather than running to your local warehouse stores buying in gigantic bulk.

Some things to considerThe size of your stock pile and the amount of space you are able to provide for your stock pile. Places include empty cabinets, pantries closets and or even basement spaces. This may not be such an issue in the beginning but as your stock pile grows your space will also shrink.

The types of items your family will use, paper products, cleaning products and non expiring products are obvious yet foods with expiration dates can be more difficult. Consider their eating habits, will the 20 boxes of Cheerios purchased be eaten before they expire or will rule of thumb be more officiant (1 per family member)? Although this can be an issue in which you are able to be more generous and donate soon to expire items before the official expiration date, or in my case I usually through it into a recipe and give as eatable gifts.


Stock piling can become addicting to some therefor you must set limits in being true to yourself and respectful to your family! Remember if you become overstocked simply donate or even produce a "care giving" basket for a loved one.

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 k…

I Tweeted in Church


No really it was the silent type so no reason form me to excuse myself or be embarrassed.

However I did blush a little when the quest pastor favorited my tweet.....

Yes you read that right "the quest pastor favorited my tweet"

But did he realize I tweeted while he was preaching?

I am not sure...

Maybe that's why he liked it??

Or maybe, it was his way of letting me know I was busted....

Which brings the question;

Is tweeting in Church considered rude?

What do you think?
