Pampered Chef: Sales Kit Enhancement Month April 08

  1. Just wanted some opinions. I am going to spend approx $100 in products, and I was just wondering what I should get. I have a pretty good chunk of the catalog, but not so much the new items. Should I get the new items or can I still purchase the Sample Packs?

    If you had $100 to spend on KE month, what would you get?

    I love the party sticks I got and the tumblers that fit in them.
    The collapsible bowl is what I am getting and the plate caddy with plates and utensils. We have a pool and entertain alot in the summer so that will be nice to have. I love my Chillzane Rectangular server, that is a great item to have. :)

    You can no longer purchase the sample packs.

    My best sellers so far this season have been the collapsible bowl and the grill basket (alot of outside orders with the grill basket). Also the new scrapers are popular. I have a lot of people who want to host a show to get them at 50% off.

    New consultants can buy the sample packs still within their first days (I think 30). They will remain up there until the next season. They were only available to regular consultants until the end of March.

    I actually bought the Small Micro Cooker and the regular size one. I needed to replace my very old ones. I also bought the Skinny and Classic Scrapers because I have all the cranberry ones, but now they aren't available. I replaced my Apple Wedger because mine is 13 years old. I needed another veggie peeler because mine is always dirty. I don't have the Family size QSP, yet, so I bought it. I decided to get the TTA for shows. I won't use it for home. I thought I should get a few grilling tools because mine are over 10 years old and can't show them. I also needed another cranberry Microfiber towel. I spent just about $103 for very useful things IMO.

    JAE - thanks for reminding me of the micro cookers - my large one is brown...
    My mom let me borrow hers for awhile but a new one of my own would be nice.

    I also need a citrus press...

    I'm trying to be cheap and practical too...

    TTA Tote

    If you don't have a Tool Turn About and TTA Tote, I would really recommend those. I tried using my TTA on the kitchen counter, but I just don't have the room, so now, I keep my rarely used utensils in the TTA, in the tote. Then, when I have a show, I just grab the stuff I normally use and add it back in. The tote has long handles and keeping all the little junk together makes my big tote neater.

    I also appreciate breaking up the weight of my regular kit tote, since I'm 7 mos. pregnant, and it's getting harder to lug everything to shows. (Last show was a 2nd floor apt., thought I was going to keel over by the last load! :) )

    I also just got the silicone floral cupcake pan and got a lot of reaction and sold some at recent shows. Seems like a dumb thing, but it's an unusual piece, you can't get just anywhere!

    Enjoy shopping!

    Like Katie, I like separating things out, too. It's easier to carry the big tote. I use my reusable grocery bags, though. They are sturdy and cost only $1.

    I just ordered this afternoon, spent $127 and got A LOT..I bought...

    Outdoor Tumblers
    Trifle Bowl
    Citrus Peeler
    Quikut Paring Knife
    Greek Rub
    All Purpose Spreader
    Floral cupcake Bakeware
    Barboard and knife set
    Collapsible Bowl
    Rectangle Server
    Flour/Sugar Shaker

    Those are some of the bigger things I wanted to get, and in July get others. I ordered the party sticks during my friends show and I LOVED somebody's idea on here to use those for a booking tree. I hope I can be as artistic one of these days! But for now, I figure the more spring/summer thing I have the better! (BTW, sorry if I have incorrect spelling, this girl isn't the best LOL) ;)

  15. Thanks everyone! I definately want the plate holder outdoor thing, and maybe some other things. I just got the collaspsible bowl from another order and I just LOVE it. It is so much bigger then I expected!
Have something to add?
