|...because I always get so much done when|
the four of us leave the house together...
I've tried to picture how exactly that would work. I'd be uploading the pictures of my products onto the computer, editing them, and then creating listings and posting them. Then I'd respond to emails. And hopefully I'd have time for the additional social media activity that is very much a necessary part of a small business these days. Then I'd have to print out the sales receipts to bring home, rather than keeping track of the 18 orders I'm currently working on (the sale has been awesome! Thank you guys!), on my computer screen. I imagine printing isn't free either. All while making sure that Mae wasn't climbing the shelves to fling books from the rafters. But that totally doesn't sound unreasonable. Maybe if I wasn't so darn lazy I'd have thought of it sooner.
I'd also like to thank my concerned reader for worrying about the $7.99 I spend each month on Netflix.
There are a lot of ways that I've managed to cut back our expenses. That is part of my job too. Gardening, couponing and repurposing items have all contributed to finding ways to stretch each dollar that comes through our hands over these past years.
Making 100% of the presents for holidays out of the materials I have on hand helps too.
Of course all of that takes... pretty much ever minute of time that I have (I sat down to check my computer because I have a headache to beat all headaches and found my readers lovely attempt at helpfulness). Which doesn't leave a lot of time for making that library trek that would totally make me a frugal, responsible member of society.
But I'd like to thank my reader for assuming that they know all of this about me, from the 500-1000 words that I post here daily. They must have received that extra copy of my husbands financial aid packet that I send out to all my followers. And they must have their lives carefully managed if they have so much time to imagine that they understand my situation and feel the need to interject their ever so helpful advice. Thanks Jan. I really appreciate your wisdom. I especially appreciate how kind and charitable you were in offering your advice.
Now to get to work... something that's possible because of this computer sitting in front of me.
