My First 5 Minutes for Mom Ultimate Blog Party!!!!!


Ultimate Blog Party 2010



I am so excited this is me first blog party! I am new to the blog-sphere there fore was unaware of such events that go on around here so I may be a little late showing up. Yet the hardest thing will be choosing how to join such a great party.

I suppose I will start by introducing myself, I am the Frugalistic Mama author of this small budget struggling blog, PrudentWisdom.com. Prudent Wisdom was created on a whim! I figured out through a friend at church how to roll my ECB bucks at CVS and then stumbled upon gift card secrets at Kroger on top of the ways in which I can shop with these little pieces of paper called coupons, that are also equivalent to money, real money, lol. Despite our severe financial troubles my husband started bragging on how I reduced our grocery budget to a little of nothing and am even able to stock his personal pantry (locker) at work. That is when all my friends started asking me how.... do you do it...well it is easier done than said. I kept confusing every one on where to go and what to look for so my closest friend suggested that I start up a blog to do the very same thing that other blogs are doing for me...sharing prudent wisdom.

With a few clicks of the mouse my blog was born. Now I will have to admit that I am no stranger to blogging in fact my words have gotten me into a little trouble on another social site, that is why I was a little receptive to starting this at all. Yet being that I now have a niche a long with a fan club that missed my witting...here I am. Although actually trying at it is a lot harder than going with the flow.

I started when I was a mother of 1 handsome little man, now I am a mother of 3 handsome little men a long with  living a new life as a wife of a full time Firefighter/EMT. My life interventions have been struggles in my faith in which have drawn me closer to God  and the blog-sphere has helped me with that as well. Through blogs such as  Moms Tool Box leading the series Reading the Bible in 90 days and now we are reading through Proverbs together.

There are many others through Savvy Blogging that I have never even met that have been there for me on getting this thing off the ground and now I am excited to be a part of 5 Minutes for Moms Ultimate Blog Party 2010 to strengthen my growth in motherhood. THANX!

I love CVS! It's the only one that I have truly figured out how to save with :)

Hi,

Stopping by from the party!

I love your blog, I am all about saving money!

I will be reading your CVS tips for saving. We just moved to Texas and the nearest place to shop is CVS, it has been quite expensive so far but my only option considering our closest store is 20 minutes away, (for me coming from CA. that's far,lol!)

Thanks for entering my blog design contest.

Good luck!

I'll be in touch!

Hello there!
Thanks for coming by my blog!! I love the name of yours. When my hubby and I first got married he got me on a budget and told me we would never buy something we couldn't pay off. I have been FOREVER thankful for that. I too love to save money.. though CVS frustrates me so I stick with Publix deals and Walgreens deals!!
Looking forward to following you more..
Blessings..

I hope your blog just grows and grows until it can't grow anymore! ;-) It's so nice to 'meet' you!

Stopping in from the UBP of course!! Hope to see you at 'my place'!

Hello! Thanks for stopping by my blog, and as we are kindred saving spirits, this is great! I am always encouraged to read another family is doing the "budget coupon" dance and still on their feet! I may not be shooting for $100 a month anymore, but $300 a month for everything is right about what you are doing too, right? It is my new goal to find ways to get cheap/free or bartered organic veggies..wish me luck! :) See ya soon! Happy UBP!
