    My PC DOLLARS!!! hehehe

    I have NONE of the Spring Products. I earned 450 PC Dollars in my first 30 days. I am thinking of getting Sample Package A and using 150 PC Dollars to cover some of it. What do you all thing? Good move? I want to make sure I save 200 PC Dollars for Conference. Opinions are welcome!

    I would pick out items from the sample pack that you really want and purchase some more essentials that will be helpful for your shows to add to your kit! Congrats on all those dollars!

    I personally would see what you need out of that. I will honestly never buy the full package. I did earn part of the SAT already from last year but could never see myself buying every single new item. If it's something you want, go for it.

    Thanks Jenny. While I am new to PC in the last couple months, I am not BRAND NEW! I took a year off or so and am back in the biz. I think I have an amazing selections of products. What you consider "essential?"

    Right now I REALLY think that the deep covered baker is essential for teaching Meals In Minutes...I tell all of my customers that if they are looking for one do it all great knife the Santuko is the ONE (I also sell the honing tool to people that own alternate knife sets)!

    For new things, if you don't have any...the Pineapple Wedger, Saute Tongs & Kernel Cutter are the super hot things for me. I use the pineapple wedger at each show if possible (just cut a pineapple...not necessarily for the recipe) and always get ooohhh and several orders for it.

    As for getting the big sample package, if you can swing in and WANT most of them, go for it. You can always give the other products away as incentives or gifts (and write-off their retail value) or sell them at a booth.

    As for products that I couldn't live without. 12" Family Skillet, several sm mix n scrapers & stone. I love the Deep Dish Baker too. Good luck and congrats on the GREAT collection of $'s! You really used the program as it's intended.

    I've learned to buy just the items I want (and I have truly wanted A LOT over the past two years). It is nice that some of the items are "open stock" type. I try to figure out the ones I really want and see if they are in a package, and what the price would be vs. buying them from the supply order, or kit enhancement in April.

    I got the family skillet with my kit enhancement and never looked back!

    I wouldn't be too caught up in getting spring products .. I noticed last year many of them were discontinued by fall.
     
Have something to add?
