Debt Jar

The best way for me to save money is to pretend I don't have it ;-) Years ago a friend and I were saving for a trip to Vegas. We knew that this would be an expensive trip and being that this was our first trip to "sin city" we did not want money to stop us from doing everything we wanted to do. Therefore we purchased these money jars from a local store in the mall. These jars were great in being that since there is no hole in the bottom, the only way to retrieve your savings is to is to break the jar. This was awesome because we were not able to touch a dime of our savings stash for any mischievous expenses before out trip. We even had a jar breaking party ;-)
Of course those were the days in which I had money to "break", now days I make my own savings jar simply and cost efficiently by taking a clean glass jar, such as an empty jar of salsa, spray painting it a solid color, 2 coats if I have to (so I can't see inside of it), super gluing the top shut and making an opening to insert money.

**POOF** a Money Saving Jar
Hopefully when it is time to break it, it will look something like this;
 *NOTE* When breaking your savings jar, place into a grocery sack to protect yourself from flying glass and use EXTREME caution!

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?
