I have a roomate! And I'm Moving!

February 16th, 2015 at 12:39 am

On Monday my boss gave me the good news.....I have been approved to move to work at home (WAH)!! This means I can keep my current job, and move to live with BF!!(He lives a little over an hr away from me currently) Ohhhhh emmmm geeee! So excited!!! I waited all week (TORTURE) to tell BF, so that I could tell him on Valentines Day! I got balloons and made signs and surprised him after he was done coaching out of town so he was totally not expecting anything, it went great and he is so, so happy!

Wow so much to say! So much to do!

Sooooo.....lots and lots of things to do and changes happening!

It will likely be about 1-2 months before I will actually be working from home, still a few things to pass through budgeting dept. Which is actually good since I have so much to do before then!

BF's friend has decided to move into the basement. YEAH! I am working on getting a lease together and also need to do some cleaning up in the garage but otherwise ready. He will be moving in in March. He will be paying $600 a month in rent.

I have a gazillion things to do with getting BF's house ready for me to move in and the office (currently a guest room for him) ready with cleaning it out, and getting a chair and desk. Then for my house, for now it is fine, but will need to be packing and moving things up. Eventually I want to rent the whole house (I would guess in a year or so) and my roommate is aware of this and that I would be renting only the basement for a limited time, then he would have the option of renting the whole house, finding a roommate, or moving out. I need to do several repairs and updates before it would be ready to rent the whole house, so I am super happy that I will have a roommate income of $600 per month while I am moving and getting the upstairs ready to rent.

This will be sooooo many money savers for both me and BF!
#1 - FUEL!!!!
#2 - BF gets a $300 per month allowance for groceries, and any leftover rolls to the next month. This is definitely more then enough to cover all of our groceries per month, so shouldn't have any grocery bill at all.
#3 - I am cancelling my gym membership ($25 per month).
#4 - My roommate's rent money will go towards my mortgage payment and we haven't worked out all the details yet, but I will be paying something towards BFs mortgage. That will be saving us both money as I will be paying less overall then I pay now for my mortgage and he will have some help from me for his payment.
#5 - I will be able to put in LOTS more OT once I am WAH as my office has limited hours but when WAH I can come in earlier, stay later, and also work on the weekends if I want to. So that will e some great extra $$.

There will be lots more money savers once I have my whole house rented, but for now these will be great changes!

SO EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Plus having someone in the basement means the house won't be unoccupied so you won't have to worry too much about someone breaking in.
