Menu Plannning

Back before I began couponing, I would schedule my menu for the entire month and only cook for one day =0) (aka OAMC=Once A Month Cooking) Yes sounds overwhelming but actually it was less time consuming than you can imagine. Yes I cooked any where from 6-8 hours but it was only for one day ;-) I would put my meals in the freezer, place them in the fridge the day before they were scheduled to be cooked, then heat them up on their scheduled day and chow down. It was quite simple being that I didn't have to cook any more for the entire month.

My son loved it because I had enough time to cook deserts, my hubs loved it because he didn't have to worry about cooking on my nights to work and I LOVED it because I spent more time with my family ;-)

Though I saved $300 just by OAMC alone I don't do it any more and haven't for a couple of years. Not because I can't or don't want to but I really don't have time believe it or not =0) My children are a hand full and I am a married wife living the single mother life therefore my time is limited still. However I do cook bi-weekly.

I schedule my menu for a little over 2 weeks being I only get paid twice a month. Some times I struggle but other times I am on the ball and am able to menu plan based of my reserve. Menu planning is BY FAR the biggest and most money saving secret that every savvy mama should know!

I try my best to post my menus bi-weekly under this link My Menu Plan

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?
