I decided in an effort to create regular "bookings" and guarentee my December sales for free spring products to do Children's cooking classes ~ charging for tools, etc. $47 of the $50 charged would be in PC tools (added to my total). Want to see?

The first page is printed on cookie stationery, the second is attached on plain paper.

Wow!

This is such a great idea! I am totally stealing this!;)

Seriously, what a wonderful way to get a some orders in, introduce some great products, and have fun. Way to go, Susan!

I can't wait to try this out... I recently left my job as a Program Coordinator for a preschool so I could stay home with my kids, this would definitely give me my "fun with kids" fix. :)


Thanks so much for sharing!

Confused

I also think this is a great idea. I might be reading this wrong but wanted to be sure to tell you in case you need to make changes.

My costs: $40.50 (inc. shipping) + tax/$2.43 + 3.50/ship + $5 ingredient cost = $51.43

I copied that out of your file. Does the $40.60 (inc. shipping) mean that that cost includes the shipping cost? If so, you may not want to charge shipping again. Maybe that is not what it means at all, but that I how I am interpreting it. Thought you might want to know before you sent them out in case it is a mistake.

That is a great idea! I just got another idea and invite emailed to me by my cluster (at least I think that's where it came from and not here) going along the same lines, but with Apple Pies. Yummy! I would LOVE to promote this, but I'm afraid I'm running out of time. Anyway, I thought I'd share this with all of you. :)

Questions for Becky

I think both Susan and Becky have wonderful ideas! I'll probably give them a try soon.

Becky, what recipe would you use for the pie? And which cookbooks would you give away for free?

Thanks!

You are WELCOME! Of course I don't mind if you take it and run with it. Maybe you can help come up with future flyers ~ we can work together.

Now the one thing raining on my parade here ~ the school said I needed to run this through the Board of Ed and they didn't seem too keen on it. I already printed out 50, and have the 11/26 deadline... Guess I could just preorder some, and change the dates by hand. But if I can't distribute through school I will need to mail... adding to my cost. but... I just want those spring/summer products!

oops, actually now I'm not sure ~ but you are right, hmmm should go back to the $45 I was originally going to charge. Think anyone will notice? See what happens when you do too much when you are already running ragged?

Thanks for the heads up ~ will have to cross out that part too.

I did the math and it does look like it was added twice...

Thanks! I wanted to charge $45, then forgot I added the shipping and just don't want these classes to cost me extra.

Love it! Thanks for sharing. I would LOVE to see more of these types of flyers/ideas for classes!

I've actually never done this....I got the idea from someone in the cluster. So, I don't know what would work the best. The free cookbook I'd assume is a Season's Best. I don't think I'd be giving away $14.75 cookbooks! :)

Just found this site, and if I am not careful, I will be up all night reading posts!! Very new to PC, although I signed up a year ago, I was busy running my own 2 brick and mortar business's that PC fell by the wayside. Anyway those 2 shops are being closed down and I am going to spend some serious time with PC and am loving all these ideas. Since I do catering already, hosting a cooking class for the Apple Pie sounds perfect, just curious, (and maybe it was stated and I am just getting tired) where would these classes be held?

Again, love, love, love this site!!!
Judy :)
