    OK, yay me! I have a $300 show going in (it's a March show) and so I get a half priced item!

    I wish I could afford a 5 pc stainless set (just because I want a 4 qt. stock pot) but since I can't afford it even at half price, I'm thinking much lower scale.

    I have a lot of products but no new ones and I am FOR SURE getting the MFP and some other small items with my free product, like the DCB cookbook.

    What item do you reccomend for a half price item? Doesn't have to be new ... I don't have ANY grilling tools ....

    12" family skillet is a must have for me--we use it several times a week.

    I am going to have the same problem!!! :)

    I did a March show to earn some new products...there are so many re-released items, I didn't want to buy all/any of the sample packages available.

    I am probably going to buy the new products I want off the Sample list - but the Open Stock items at 50% off.

    Then, any items that are in the packages, I will get with my FPV. (MegaLifter, measuring spoons, Scoop & drain...).

    That leaves what to get for my 60% item and my half price item. So, I am getting the MFP as my 60% off item. Still haven't decided on the half price item. Maybe the Mega Lifter since it is the most expensive thing in the packages.

    So, I am in the same dilemma! A good dilemma.

    What did you get as your 60% off new item?

    When I'm unsure....I always click on the magnifying glass and search for All Products- then have it listed by the most expensive product first, and work my way down the list for both my budget and my needs/wants. What can I afford, and then of those, what do I most desire to have or need. :D

    Good problem to have though!

    I have all the cookware and stoneware I want, including the 7 pc. set and the family skillet and the DCB. I just need 4 quart stock pot to replace the UGLY one in the same size that I inherited.

    My recruiter pointed out that the scraper set is also a great buy. We both take cash and carry to fairs and try to keep scrapers in stock. But I'm also thinking of the Course Grater and the Mango Wedger.

    I am SO GLAD you posted. It got me thinking about the sample packages...which I was thinking I had until tomorrow to order! But, it is TONIGHT! I was thinking tomorrow was the 31st!:eek:

    If you had not posted this I would have waited until tomorrow to order samples and been out of luck!

    So, I think I decided that I am going to order a second set of the new small dots glasses as my half price item.

    Ha ha ... Kam, I guess I missed the sample deadline too. I was actually going to order some of them but now I am going to get all of new products I can on this show, 60 percent off, half price and FREE.

    What I would also look at is, what sort of shows you are planning on doing in the next 3-4 months. If there are certain recipes you'd like to demo, but cannot, because you're missing necessary products, for example, you may want to get something for that.

    Budget is always a concern. I would seriously look at the BBQ collection of tools, and either get the half-price combo, if budget allows, or at least a barbecue turner. I LOVE the BBQ turner, as it's 4 tools in one, and sell lots of them. I promote it as my "number one man tool"....and it's a wonderful Father's Day gift!!

    Best of luck to you!!

    Already have that too!

    I went ahead and got the scrapers at half price, and the BBQ turner too ... then a credit card put the whole show on hold!

    I hope this doesn't drag out forever ... the lady who bought the Family Skillet on this show doesn't deserve that!
