Save some money, share the fun! (Pt. 2)

Following on from yesterday's post, here are a few more money saving ideas!

  • Use your wishlist!
    Kaszazz provide a great little Wishlist which I highly recommend using! I encourage all my customers to fill out their wishlist and bring it with them to my workshops. It helps with ordering from our extensive (and always growing) Catalogue, especially when we're constantly mentally adding to our wishlists! Having a list written down not only helps with ordering, but is handy when someone asks what you want! ;) Just hand them your wishlist and let them pick a gift for you that you'll really love!
  • Have a (birthday) party!
    I know several people who have had a FREE Make and Take around the time of their birthdays, and as a result, have had their guests order them their birthday presents from their wishlists! At one party, the host's wishlist got sent round the table, and people just marked off what they would buy. When the list returned to the host, she was able to order any remaining items direct from her wishlist, because she knew what others were buying her and didn't need to double up! As the host, you could benefit in more ways than one by celebrating your birthday this way! Not only will your guests buy your presents, but if your sales total over $150, 10% of those orders will be yours to spend on whatever you like from the catalogue! Collect orders over $350, and you'll also be able to choose a Hostess gift! Add this to any birthday money you get, and suddenly your wishlist will be looking pretty empty, and you've spent very little of your own money!
  • Buy 're-usable' itemsInstead of buying stickers or rub-ons, buy stamps. Instead of buying new ink pads, buy ink refills in the colours you need. With ink refills, a little goes a long way!

  • Stay organised!
    Keeping everything you need well organised and in a place you can easily see and reach will help you from buying items you already have!
