Pampered Chef: CANADIAN supply order

    Trying to complete a supply order - adding a few 'door prize" items... i thought that at some point we were able to order some mini serving spatulas - are we still able & I'm not seeing it or are they not available this way? I see mini whippers, easy openers, hold & slice...

    Also, I thought I would find out what others orders usually look like. Mine are usually every 3-4 months (I haven't figured everything out to order just once a season) and include (depending on my stock at home):

    catalogues
    paperwork kit (the one for $30 with hostess & recruiting stuff & 25 catalogues)
    2-3 training CD's (although I think I might be close to having the collection that is available now...)
    order forms
    door prize items

    I try not to order the specials this way since I have the chance to earn them ;)

    I have been placing an order lately about every 2 months. I try to place one large order to set me up for 4 months or so - but lately my business has been inconsistent - some months I have 3 shows other I have 7....hard to plan for that.

    I was wondering about the $30 package as well - I think I will try it.

    I have just been ordering catalogues and doorprizes (SBRC - but am looking to change-it-up). I have enough of everything else.....

    I order catalogues, host planners, door prize slips and pp receipts. I also get the S/B at the beginning of the season and get 3 bundles which usually last me the season. I also ordered a ton of reusable bags this season as well to give to hosts with an S/B/.

    I'm not crazy on what's offered for door prizes so I get those free on catalogue shows of my own or with a discount on my open house etc. This way I CAN get small spreaders, quikut knives, and mini spatulas.

    And you're correct - mini spatulas are no longer offered on the supply form.

    Thanks ladies.
    Jenna The $30 paperwork kit is worth it if you want the recruiting/host stuff... plus of course the 25 cattys. I've been having some issues with consistancy too, so it has been hard to gauge how many I need for the entire season.

    Jodi, I am sad to see that I am correct, I was hoping to pick up some mini spatulas :(

    Anyone know if there is a place on Consultant's corner to get a description/picture of certain items that are on the supply order list?

    Are the reuseable shopping bags (5 for $7) like the reuseable cloth bags that you can get at the store? What size are they? I think I remember seeing them somewhere and they were a smaller size than I've seen at the grocers, but now I can't remember.

    Are the pantry demo products the little bag of spices that come in an envelope like thing or are they regular sized to use during a show?

    Jodi, what is S/B? I'm new here! :)

    Sorry for all the questions! I sold in the states for a while and things are different here! :)

    I think the shopping bags are pictured in one of the Consultant's News but I'm not sure which one, sorry. I'll look later if you don't find it first ;) I at first thought they were smaller but now I LOVE them! They have an insert for the bottom of the bag for stability and are very sturdy. I keep 8 in each vehicle plus give one to hosts along with a S/B (which is a Season's Best cookbook :))

    The pantry demo products are a full regular size of the seasoning of your choice.

    Hope that helps! Feel free to ask all the questions you'd like :)

    What size are those bags? I think I remember them now in the Consultant's news, but I'm pretty sure I threw that issue away already. :(

    Okay I just went and measured one. They're 13 inches long, 8 inches wide and 13.5 inches tall. I first thought they weren't tall enough but they are wonderful! I usually only use four at the grocery store (one or two for a small quick trip) and the most I've ever used (and that was on a HUGE shopping day) was 8. I pack those puppies FULL and have no problem carrying them or them holding up to the weight.

    Hope that helps! :)

    Off to watch the rest of a movie with DH.

    Thank you so much! I signed up after February so I didn't get that issue. They are the size I was looking for. Yeah! :)
