It Stinks Starting Over

Since the loss of my dear friend I haven't been couponing....hardly. I didn't realize how much her support impacted the survival of my grocery budget. Couponing is one thing but actually having friends that coupon with you is a completely different ball game.

I haven't had anyone remind me about certain sales before they end. No one has called to ensure I got all my papers for the week. I can't call her because my Kroger ran out of papers. And she's not here for me to call when I find the hottest deal before anyone else. To be honest I haven't been able to clip a single coupon without thinking about her. I wasn't able to recognize this funk I was in until I opened my kitchen cabinets this morning and saw this;
 No, your eyes are not deceiving you, Stockpiling Mom of the Year has no more reserve for her family in fact she is running out of food. The part that is even more depressing is that we have been on such a strict budget for so long we can't afford to go over our limit. This is where when I say be consistent I mean BE CONSISTENT or all your hard work will go out the window.

But have no fear! All this depressing funk is going to benefit you, yes you. Because I am going to be able to guide you as I go, directly from the starting line and around all obstacles that will come our way. Giving more meaning behind "How I Save" I will be able to show you where to begin. How to begin. And what NOT to do. Starting with do not loose faith!

I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
 Philippians 4:12-13

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?
