New Job, New Contract and Still Decluttering

August 6th, 2022 at 11:19 pm

I’ve been bummed about going back into the office but I’m also excited about the income I’ll receive. 


Tuesday I start the new job. In the middle of all that I finally got one of  the calls I wanted and landed a contract for $2500 a month. 


Had I got this call prior to being offered the job, I would not have taken the job that is paying the $105k a year. But God works in mysterious ways. 


I was hesitant about letting the new client know I’d taken another role but decided to do so. My conscious was nudging at me. Anyway it worked out, they still want my services and all I can think about it goodbye student loans. 


Leading up to my new job, I decluttered my house with the exception of the kitchen and living room. My kitchen cabinet (sink) finally collapsed, others are on its way. It’s been hell trying to get them replaced. I finally decided to just go with Home Depot. Yes it will be a bit more expensive but guess what? It will be done. I’m finding that Independent contractors either don’t call back, don’t show up, when they do show its radio silence afterwards, or its a combination of everything. Honestly I’m overwhelmed by it. Never thought that trying to replace cabinets would be so difficult.

    Way to go on the jobs! Hope they are both great for you.

    Yes, we've run into the same problems trying to get someone to do stuff for us. We lucked into a contractor who not only showed up, refused to even schedule the work until he had all the materials, and then made sure his team was there every day and everything got done. DH thought it might have been more expensive, but it was worth every penny and the work was done wonderfully. So, Home Depot might be more expensive, but if they do as they promise, it is worth it since so few people actually do as they say.

    Thanks everyone for your continued support, it means a lot.

    @Mumof2 my loans are set up a little weird. I received two initially, but those two are also broken down into two loans each, they’re like subtitles. The lender actually have it set up as such on the site, so I do the same. I actually like it because it provides me a clearer picture of where I am. I hope this helps.

    @Rob62521, I honestly would pay more if I knew the job would be started and completed. To me it’s so worth it. I think it’s great you found such a great contractor.
