When it Rains it Pours

July 28th, 2022 at 02:14 pm

I have been living in my home for about 11 years, it’s only been the last three that I’ve actually owned it. 


Well nothing broke during the time I was here and renting but now it seems like everything is falling apart. 


I’ve mentioned my kitchen cabinets before and have been holding off. Well yesterday, underneath the sink, it collapsed completely. SMH. There was some minor water damaged but I think after the pipe debacle it got worst. So I just decided to go ahead and replace the cabinets. I’ve reached out to three organization’s for quotes. I’ll be buying the cabinets from Home Depot, vs having custom cabinets made and having them installed. 


Next I think my fence needs to be done, it’s leaning a bit, so I’m planning and preparing for that as well. The fence is a must, required by the HOA. 


When it rains it pours. 


Other news, I signed the offer letter. I want to pay off the remaining student loan and my mortgage. This new gig should get me there. With the potential to bonus $15k a year, I should be able to do it.

    Amber I am keeping my fingers crossed for an announcement of some student loan debt forgiveness in August.

    I think for most homes, cabinets from Home Depot are fine. But take the time to look at a few places and get Ides about what is possible.
    You can go to a higher end store with a floor plan to get ideas and then see if you can replicate them with stock cabinets.

    I bought β€˜temporary’ pantry cabinets when I bought my condo 18 years ago, and they are still going strong…

    If you have a Habitat for Humanity store near you, they sometimes have great cabinets that people have donated. You might want to look there for a better price. They only sell things that are in good condition or work. We got an old fridge there once and it lasted several years. They have always had lots of cabinets when we've gone, often really nice ones. You could at least use them as a stop gap if you want to save up for custom ones or you might find some that you really like.

    congrats at a new job. FB Buy nothing is a great place for old fridges.

    Congrats on the new job!

    It seems like when you own a home, things pop up and usually in threes. Not trying to be a downer...

    Hopefully you can find some lovely cabinets that are well made that you will be happy to live with.
