More money, more problems - sounds about right

Following on the heels of my new job and pretty much double what I was making. I wanted to start paying off my credit cards. I have a bunch of them and am sick of paying on them. It's a lesson I had to learn the hard way. Yes a new card will solve immediate financial problems (I filled our tank with oil one winter; bought a new freezer cause ours wasn't self defrost so every year we had to get someone to lug it outside to drain, which means the food had to go some place for like over a day, the ice would build up bad, plus the door wouldn't close sometimes; also bought a new mattress which I sorely needed. My back hurt so bad before I got a new one.) but then you have those payments to deal with and when you don't really have the money all you're doing is paying and then using it every month.

Unfortunately, more money doesn't mean EXTRA money. Stuff always comes up. Our over 20 year old washing machine finally went. It stopped spinning out and the clothes were soaked. So it was time to get a new one. Can't say mom didn't get her money's worth.

So Friday when I got paid I took a whole pay, plus mom contributed a little bit, and we went and bought a new washer. They delivered it yesterday. So far so good. I know new stuff isn't made as good, so it's not gonna last 20 years, but I'm hoping for at least 10. We bought the 3 yr warranty too. I wanted to get the 5 yr, but I just didn't have the money. Plus it's a Maytag and that brand guarantees certain parts like the motor and a couple other things for 10 years. So if one of those parts would go in the next 10 years, we're good. and if something happens in 3 years, Lowe's (where we got it) will replace it or fix it depending on what's wrong.

This was a big purchase for me, as usually I don't drop hundreds of dollars at once on one thing. But it had to be done. The good thing is if I wasn't making what I am now and the washer would've went, we would have been screwed cause there is no way I'd have been able to afford it.

2 pics are posted, so if they disappear check back.

I sent an Angel to watch over you last night, it returned in a hurry. I asked why, it said "Angels can't watch porn." Thanks for fucking traumatizing my fucking Angel!

Don't bother trying to figure me out. Not even the little voices in my head understand me. It's pointless!

i know the feeling. i went from $9, $10 and even $11 hr for years until i found my current job making over $60k to start. i replaced all of my old worn out appliances and wardrobe and shit seemed to come up. warranties, repairs, my deep freeze went out just for starters. and you are right. more money doesnt mean extra money. it is a hard lesson learned with paper or plastic. hope all of your financial woes clear up and soon.

Yeah, well we knew the washer was gonna go soon. In fact when my dad was still alive over 3 years ago he said it wasn't gonna last much longer, so the fact it waited till I was making more money, I can't complain. It's just more ironic. But at least I'm not upset cause I don't have the money for it.

I recently watched a documentary about faulty, short-lived product design (cutting corners for maximum profit), which inherently forces you to buy the commodity again, sooner rather than later.
