My Black Friday

On Black Friday every year I would rather hibernate than fight through a crowded store over an impulse purchase that would eventually end up in the trash or the yard sale pile. Don't get me wrong I LOVE to spoil my kids when it comes to presents but I choose not to overwhelm them so much that it dilutes the meaning of Christmas. Yet this year I did venture out and make a few Black Friday purchases.
Although my shopping trip was made on Thanksgiving Day it was still advertised as a Black Friday sale ;-) at CVS of course and Walgreen's as well, lol. However, being that this was my first trip to Walgreen's to score some Register Rewards I was not impressed. I feel that my purchases were not as money savvy as CVS and may never shop there again unless needed. Therefore I will share with you my CVS trip first.

I would like to add that due to the recent rumors of CVS employees having a disgusting attitude toward savvy ECB shoppers, the employees and the CVS I shop at are absolutely amazing! They are patient with me in every way even when I am not patient with myself, when my children are with me the take notice in there good behavior and encourages good behavior when they are acting up. With that said her are my transactions in order, with a few minor confusions, lol

        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?
