Reworking the Budget

March 12th, 2018 at 04:24 pm

So, I had my meeting at work. It went better than I thought it was going to. I was completely shocked when she said that my hours weren't changing. However, as she started reading through my hours I realised that they had one day wrong. Well,I explained that I can't do that shift because I can't get there early enough. She had a think and suggested a long day. I pointed out that buses are unreliable at that time so she shortened it. The result was that I was now 4 hours less. She said that I can pick up another day to make up my hours,in fact another very early start was suggested.

Well,I came home and spoke to hubby about it. Another very early rise just doesn't work - I'm talking before 4 - so we're just going to rework the budget. Before I left work that day I spoke to another woman who is also reworking her budget.

So,it's not official yet because I haven't signed my new contract. Was it the best decision financially? Probably not, but for my sanity and family life, I think it is best.

    Work-life balance has to be at the top of the list for sanity and happiness!

    With DH on board, you should be able to make the budget work less those four hours.

    Sometimes you have to make the best decision that works for you, even if it means less money.

    I think you made the best decision. You can make up the difference in careful budgeting. Look how you got rid of that catalog debt!

    It sounds like you made the best of it.

    Sounds like it was for the best. Is there any chance your husband could make some extra money on the side?
