Supplies & Getting Organized

Stephanie S

May 13, 2005

I was wondering if anyone can give me some pointers on the quantity of supplies I should have on hand, and how long it will take to receive more.

I seem to be going through catalogues really quickly, and I don't want to be short if I am able to book a show close in. I also started this business on the side to make money, and I can't help but feel as though I'm spending a lot of money on suppies (envelopes, postage, catalogues, etc.)

Also, if anyone has any ideas on getting organized I would really appreciate it - I feel as though I have PC stuff everywhere! :eek:

I have no problem sending catalogs home with guests who want them but there are more than not that do not generate further business. Here is what I do.

Get yourself some inexpensive folders with gussetts and a pocket on each side, plus a box of page protectors. Cut apart 12 catalogs and put each page in a page protector. Then put them into the gussetts in the center of the folder. Use the pockets for specials and order forms etc.

This will drastically cut down on the catalogs that you go through and will weed out those folk that only take catalogs because they are there. Anyone who really wants to take one home with them will ask you for one.
