Better Than PayDay

Well I know that it has been WAY to long since I have posted about my personal grocery savings but I wanted to assure you that I am still saving and pinching my pennies, so much so that tonight I added it all up.

I came across this program from the The Grocery Game, Inc. and have used it my entire savings life. I love it!! All I have to do is enter my OOP and the amount I saved then PRESTO it calculated my cumulative savings/spending for me.

I copied the program several times in order to keep track of each grocery store. Being that I narrowed my running to 2 stores I deleted the others =0/

Here is my Krogers savings;
 Groceries valued at $3,167
 Actual OOP $2,064
 Savings = $1,102

That doesn't look like much but when you add the fact that the totals include GAS AND DIAPERS it looks AMAZING ;-) I didn't really keep up with my gas receipts this year but that will be my goal for next year being that there is even more savings to be included just because I use the gift card system at Krogers ;-)

Here is my Publix savings;
 Groceries valued at $1,458
 Actual OOP $687
 Savings = $771

That looks better but I must admit that I don't shop at Publix anymore only because of my Krogers Cares card, if Publix came up with something like it would become my second home ;-)

My GRAND total looks something like this;

 Groceries valued at $4,624
 Actual OOP $2,751
 Savings = $1,873


***Remember these totals are for a family of 5 and include Gas, diapers, toiletries and cleaning supplies as well as many donated items***

These totals indicate 3 months I went without grocery shopping. Yep that's right I said 3 months WITHOUT ;-) Through the entire summer the only time I was caught at the grocery store was to purchase milk, bread and the occasional gas cards and diapers =0)

My goal is to save even more, spend even less and gain a more valuable reserve in 2012

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?
