The Universe gives you a nudge when there’s a deal on! Yeah!
I’m like Papa from the movie 100 foot journey “Just because I ask for a discount doesn’t mean I’m poor. It means I’m thrifty.”
I seriously love that quote. Not that I ask for discounts, I just want to spend my money wisely.
I’ve spent the last couple of days going through my supply purchases and itemising everything and calculating how much per bead, per gram, per everything on everything. Seriously taking efficiency to the next level 😉
I’ve also been comparing my invoices to my suppliers current prices and some of them have gone wayy up. Something that was previously $6 per strand is now $11, a lot have doubled, some tripled.
Turquoise chips are now $11 for a 50g bag. O.o Guess who’s looking for a new turquoise supplier?!
This makes it hard to have fixed prices on my stuff. Right now I’m selling Orgonite domes, pyramids, pendants, phone buttons and gemstone bracelets. Earrings will be coming out soon, candles and organic body oils/butter is on development mode ~ in fact I have my first batch of Certified Organic oils and butters coming, I hope, next week. Thus the need to calculate everything right down to the grams and mils.
2015 is Our year to spread our wings and soar, as we were always meant to. And that’s exactly what I’m doing. It’s going to be a busy year and now is the time to set the tone, organise myself, put new things in place, and really solidify the vision I have in my head for the year I desire.
Things happen for a reason. I know I say this all the time, but seriously, I can’t say that enough. It’s one of those hardcore Faith things. If you believe you Believe!
In my case I’ve spent money I thought at the time I shouldn’t be spending, but just found out, by spending that cash I saved quite a bit and I’m set up to work work work for the next few months without needing to re order again.
There’s a plan. We don’t always know it, though be honest, sometimes you have a clue. But if you go with the flow and trust your instincts, you’ll see the plan somewhere down the track, coming together.
