Good idea or Bad Idea?

The time has come.

Our property tax has gone up...a lot.

Now there is no way around it.

I need a job that actually pays in bills rather then in snot and slobbery kisses.

So tonight Mr. Genius put the boys in the car and we drove around and picked up these.




Here is my thinking. If I have to leave my family, I want to go to a place that I will love to go and find inspiration.

Well that is my excuse anyways to picking up applications to Hobby Lobby, Pottery Barn, Anthropologie, and Home Goods.

Only time will tell if this will actually help us or hurt us.

Retail - Bad!
Employee discount - Gooood!!!

Becky said...

OOOHHHH! I couldnt do it. I'd dump all my money back into that place using my discount! HAHA.

Sorry you have to get a job, but at least you will get a discount! I would probably spend more than I made! Good luck!

Jenny said...

You know how I feel about retail, but you're more of a people person than I am, so you may like it! Plus, you gotta do what you gotta do! Good luck on your job hunt!

That's awesome, I just applied at Home Depot for the same reason!

I guess a girls got to do what a girls got to do! Don't you just hate this economy! I saw Hobby Lobby would be my first choice!

I vote Anthro all the way!

Kat said...

And I just had a thought...I should tell Andrew I want to work at Anthro so that I have an excuse to go pick up an "application" AKA peruse the sales rack. Hmm...

As a person whose jobs have only been at FUN places, let me tell you it "costs money" to have those kind of jobs. I am sure I spend more than I earn....good luck!!!!

I'm going to be right behind ya honey! I'll need to get seriously looking soon. I personally have enjoyed being in retail, but you do have to watch those employee discounts. Good luck!

Yay for employee discounts!

You should look into Stampin' Up! It's a super crafty and amazingly employee-friendly company. You get a 20% discount on everything you order and you work your schedule around YOU. I joined nearly 6 years ago and have never regretted it for a second! If you have questions I can help you out or hook you up with someone closer to you. Good luck either way.

ooohhhh... My paycheck would all go back into those places!
I used to sell Southern Living at HOME and good grief- I never made a profit after the first 3 months! I was buying too much stuff of my own!

Well, retail is not for me. It never fail that I spent my money back at work. Granted, I got my beautiful Bedroom set from it but still.
Best of luck, I know it must have been hard to get to that decision.
