As I have discussed last Monday, I was so angry with the carpenter who is supposed to make my cabinet at home, backed out on the last minute. Then, the carpenter that I am supposed to hire in lieu of him has still a project with other private persons. Thus, I told my sister to tell him to line me up if he is done with the other client. Yesterday, I went to the mall to buy the cloth for the curtains I plan to sew. Then I saw some clothes cabinets. They were on sale. Gosh, they are beautiful and cheaper than what I budgeted for my cabinet as the carpenter had estimated the materials already. I didn’t bring the money for the cabinet with me so I went home after buying the cloth for the curtain and called my husband who is in Manila for a meeting. He told me to buy it already because it might be sold. Thus, today as soon as the mall opened, I went to furniture section and the one on display yesterday was with a mark SOLD , ready for delivery. Luckily, they still have one in the stockroom when i asked the sales person. Whew, I think God meant it for me. I bought it and it will be delivered on Monday. I am so happy, that I was able to save PhP3,000.00.

I hope you informed the carpenter his services would not be needed, or is he going to install these new cabinets for you?

Actually, the said carpenter is said to do my cabinet. But at the last minute , he didn't report to work. I was angry with him for doing that. Then, i saw these varied cabinets at a mall, for sale. Upon scrutinizing their quality and prices i decided that i better buy not have one made . Thus, i was able to save a lot.

If he didn't show up, you have the right to do what you needed to do. It's always nice when things work out better than before.

You were fortunate enough to find the clothes cabinets and get your money worth.It was really a blessing in disguise.You ought to "thank"the carpenter for his backing out at the last minute.

Yeah, it was really a blessing in disguise that i cannot find a replacement for the first carpenter. Oh yes, my mother texted today if i still need the carpenter. I told her not anymore because i already bough a cabinet on sale.

Nowadays even the cabinet is made of cloth,many of carpenters will be out of work.

I am happy to hear stories like this... It makes me remember an article saying "Don't be sad if you lost something valuable, because rest assured God has always something BETTER in exchange for what you have lost." It happened to me many times. But mostly we don't realize it until we get the replacement. We usually, or well we say normally, easily get disappointed because we did not get what we wanted. But it's good that we still are given the chance to be grateful for His good deeds.

That's true my friend. I was disappointed and angry for days after that. Thus, when i chanced upon the sale cabinet, i realized God wants me to be able to really save a lot.

It is alwyas good to find something at a cheaper price. Luckily, you were able to find it the next day. I remember one time when I say a cabinet in a store but since I did not have money to buy it at that time, I decided I would go for it the following day. To my surprise, it had already been sold to someone else. I really felt very bad.

Actually , when an item is on sale, we have to have the money to buy it if not within the day, early the next day when the mall opens. That's what i did, i bought it first thing in the morning when they opened. The one on display wasn't there anymore. Luckily, they still have 2 stocks on their warehouse.

Good thing that the carpenter sid back out for the last minute last Monday. Now you still save some money and the cabinet was already ready to use. Do they offer free delivery?

No, they made me pay PhP200.00 for the delivery. But it's okay, as long as they deliver it without damage. I was supposed to wait for hubby to arrived from Manila on Saturday, but he said that i buy it already, lest someone will overtake me in buying it. Sure did, it was already the last stock.

That's great! There's a saying" When things meant to be yours it will be yours at the end no matter what. That's true, God always have a perfect plan to every corner of our life.His plan is perfect and his ways never flaws. I'm glad you saved more than you think to spend. Have a great day friend!

Actually, i didn't expect that i would be saving that much from my budget. I was so bent in having the cabinet of my own design, that i forget to scout for those ready made ones. Had it not been for the incident with the carpenters , i would have not thought of just buying a ready made one. Well, yes God meant it for me indeed.

See D, God's work after all. It's his own way of telling you that you deserve something better. And there you got it. You were able to save a lot of money.

Correct Toni. I really felt his presence in my life today, so a while ago when i prayed it was all praises to HIM. I couldn't help my self from dancing with joy when i arrived from shopping.
