UPDATE: Homemade Laundry Detergent

Back in November I wrote a post on Homemade Laundry Detergent, I must confess that I had been using the detergent for 3 months before I wrote the post being I wanted to make sure that it was something Prudent Wisdom worthy.

I didn't want to write a post on something that I did not believe in or use myself ;-)

I also had studied several recipes on Pinterest, therefore, I had to tweak this recipe to my satisfaction in order to share it with you to avoid any false advertisements =0)

So on to the UPDATE.........

I just ran out of detergent =-O

Yep that's right my original recipe lasted my family an entire 7 months!!!

In referring to my last post I saw that I did not post the cost savings.....Shame on ME =0( But with help from Amazon I am going to give you a rough estimate now;

Now you know I DID NOT pay these prices being I shop frugally and with qps, that is why this is ONLY a rough estimate!

Even so Less than $30 has provided my family of 5 laundry detergent for longer than a year. I will have to post an update every time I make a batch, we will see the final cost savings at the time I run out of ingredients. Which by my calculations I should be able to make 4 more batches before I run out of Arm & Hammer. At the rate of 1 batch every 7 months I'm not going to run out for................3 1/2 yrs?!?!


UUUMMMMM that's $.72 a month for Laundry detergent...CHA-CHING!!!!!!


What about you? Are you excited too? Are you making your own laundry detergent? I bet you will now ;-)

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?
