Knives or New Product?

I did not earn the new products last year so I set aside money to purchase them this month. My host from Tuesday does not want to use the Host special for this month and has offered it to me. I would LOVE to buy the knife & block set at 60% off but that means I would be using the $ I set aside for the new product. I am thinking I may buy the knife block set and on March 1st order the new product as a customer.

What would you do?

I would play with the numbers, but here are 3 options I can think of:

(1) Buy the knives now at 60%, the new product in March full price (you'll get 20% commission back...so it's like a 20% discount. ;) ).
(2) Buy the knives now; pull together a catalog show in March to get some at discount or free.
(3) Buy the knives now; buy SOME of the new products in March- the ones you really want ot have in hand to show, and then buy the rest in April at 40% off for consultants (Kit Enhancement month) - use your March commission to buy those.

?? Just some thoughts. Changeover season is always my most expensive! - With buying samples I didn't earn (I don't get many usually), and the season supplies...uggh. :) This year, my commission at least has paid for what I had to buy.

It's a great deal on the knives though!

I say go for the knives and add the new stuff as you can. Showing the knives will earn you big sales :)

GO FOR THE KNIVES!!! I pulled together a catty just to get them at 60% off. They come in Tuesday, I can't wait! I earned some of the new products. The rest I'll just wait to see if some of my hosts give up some benefits. (I have many who only use the FPV)
