Can You Freeze Candy??

Of course you can!!

As a matter of fact I do it every year and haven't bought my own candy in 2 years!

I, myself, thought this was an "old" savvy tip and never thought any less of it. My mom told me this secret years ago. She revealed to me that she would often freeze some of our Halloween candy and use it to stuff our stockings at Christmas.

GENIUS!!

However this year, when I spilled the beans about "my" secret and the Easter candy we hid for our egg hunt. The entire room gasped......even my Grandmother???

"What??" They all shouted

My Uncle made the comment that he wasn't eating what we brought, my aunt snooted her nose and my grandmother,  MY GRANDMOTHER.....I thought she would be proud of me.....Gave me a lecture about how chocolate changes colors.

At this point my hubs stepped in and backed me up on this ingenious idea (I LOVE that man) and vouched that we haven't seen our chocolate change colors. Not to say that it hasn't but it's still good!

Needless to say I was still astonished about the situation by the time we got home that evening and to be sure my mother didn't lie to me....being she didn't back me up......I Googled the idea. I found out that I am not the only "genius" in the world ;-) Infact I found several sites that list more information than I imagined there would be.

Such as:

"Most candy doesn't need to be frozen. 
Sugar is a natural preservative and there's not much else in hard candy."

The Nap Time Chef actually did a taste test comparing frozen candy verses room temp candy.

Fox News even published a report on What to do with left over Halloween candy. Stating:
"Have you ever had a frozen Snickers bar? 
They are delicious, and will taste a lot better if you save them for a time
 when you aren’t candied-out from trick-or-treating."


And this Special Report on how to Make the Most of your Halloween Candy even gives you a chart to go by:

Halloween candy tips

So you see FAMILY and friends you can indeed freeze your left over candy from this year whether it is from Easter, Halloween, Christmas or even Valentines. In fact you can catch those clearance sales this year and be life of the party next year ;-)

Now tell me have you ever frozen candy? or are there other ways to save your left overs?

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

OOPS!

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?
