My Black Friday (Part 2)

I decided since I had such an extravagant list of transactions from CVS I would apply my Wags list in a separate post.
As I stated in my first Black Friday post, I was not impressed with Walgreen's what so ever. So many rules and restrictions regarding there Register Rewards frustrated me. Yet I was lucky enough to be approached by a manager that understood what I was trying to do and tried to help me out the best that he could by explaining to me the whys and why nots. Sadly enough I omitted transactions that I had mapped out just to get this experience over with, therefore you will see my OOP exceeds my goal;

Transaction 1;
  • 1 Bic Flex Razor pack $2.99
  • 1 Crest Tp $2.99
  • 1 Colgate Tp $2.99
  • 1 Centrum Silver $3.49
  • - $1.00 Centrum qp
  • - $1.00 Crest qp
  • - $1.00 Colgate qp
  • - $2.00 bic qp
  • = $8.61 OOP(it)
  • + $11.23 RR
This next transaction is where the confusion/frustration came into play and the cashier called for her manager. He was nice enough to fix the transaction to look like this:

Transaction 2;
  • 1 A&W Root beer $.99
  • 1 Scunci hair tie $1.99
  • 1 G-U-M floss picks $2.25
  • - RRs from Trans.1
  • = $2.71 OOP(it)
  • + $12.74 RRs
This is where I gave up and piled the rest of my product on the register to be rang up. My son spotted a few items that he wonted for Christmas that I knew I could not afford alone and being that I could use RRs toward it I check out like this:

Transaction 3;
  • 1 Secret expressions body spray $3.39
  • 1 Gillette fusions facial cleanser $5.49
  • 1 Oral B Tb $2.25
  • 1 Nivea shave gel $2.99
  • 1 Old Spice body spray $3.99
  • 1 Thermacare heart wrap $2.49
  • 1 Advil PM $.99
  • - $12.74 RRs from trans.2
  • = $10.96 OOP(it)
  • + $20.74 RRs
Gran TOTAL OOP= $22.19 with $20.74 in RRs my technical total OOP= $1.45. I didn't do too bad just not as good as I mapped out. Did I say I was disappointed? I WAS!!

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?
