It doesn't include paperwork items. What do you already have? Do you have the DCB? Salad choppers? Another good knife or a piece of cookware larger than the 8" saute pan?
I sell a ton of apple wedgers and can openers as well. It's always a fun time for sure!! I love discount shopping!

Those are all great! I also love to do monkey bread and garlic bread bites in my fluted stoneware pan. I have sold a ton of salad choppers and spinners the last 2 months when demo-ing the spinach and strawberry salad. Have fun!

Just some ideas:
Tool turn about? (I personally could not live without in my kitchen or for shows), a nice platter (SA/Bamboo) for laying out whatever food you make? Any particular items your guests always ask about? I'm sure the experts have their own opinions but to determine what I wanted before my 4th month, I tried to think of what I would be demo'ing and what time of year it was. (ie: b/c it was summer time I bought the grill basket/BBQ turner/Grill it Quick CB/QS Pitcher and some bamboo as main pieces aside from rubs for the grill) or for easy transport - stock up the Tool Turn About with nifty gadgets (lots of my customers like the bamboo utensils/can opener/scrapers etc).

I definitely agree on an additional piece of cookware (I plan on getting the 12" skillet) and perhaps a different knife (I'm shooting for a Santoku).

Just my 2 cents. Enjoy your shopping!

Remember, if you want cookware, maybe host a show in August to get at 60% off intead of 40% off. Just a thought.

I just submitted my 4th month Kit Enhancement Order! I only used my PC $$ that I earned and I'm SO excited to get my products! I order what I noticed people buying alot of, a few pantry items (since I don't have any), some things I remember people asking for, and some stuff that I thought I'd like to own in my own kitchen. Over my first 90 days I earned over $500 PC $$ so I bought some stuff in April (kit enhancement month for everyone) and I'm spending my remaining PC $$ this month. But be sure to check when your "4th month" actually is! I finished my 90 days on June 15 and my 4th month wasn't valid until July 1.

I would also suggest you save some of your PCD for biz materials....you'll be able to get products as host specials by hosting a show each month, if you like the special, and you'll get a bigger discount as your team grows.....

Since PCD do not expire, you can stretch them to pay for catalogs and supplies.

I wanted to buy everything at once, so I know the temptation to buy, buy, buy....especially with the 40% discount. Buy a good couple of hundred dollars and build your PC collection, but also save some for your biz materials....just a thought.

I'm really excited to get through my first 90 days. I've been shooting for $1250 a month in sales and hopefully it works out. I have two catalog shows going and I plan to try to get two more shows.

Thanks, I didn't realize how rare it was until my director told me I was the first in my downline to acheive that! My first full month was a $3,000 month and so far it's gone down a little each month but yeah, I don't know how I pulled that off!

I would base it on the recipes you see yourself making. I would also recommend the full size cutting board, the coated bread knife, the largest knife with the honing case, and a platter. I always use more than one knife and cutting board at shows, and it's nice to use PC serving pieces to round out the demo.
