So, I started thinking about the whole journey. Blogging. Creating. Reviewing. TpT. Friendships. The whole she'bang! Then, I immediately started slashing prices. Aside from my dollar deals and freebies, everything else in my store has an adjusted price. Honestly, pricing products is tricky business, and I have struggled with it ever since I opened my store. I try to look at what everyone else is doing and consider all of the factors that impact pricing. I struggle because I don't want to underprice (my most recent centers ended up costing $35.00 to make... and several HOURS), but I also don't want to charge an arm and a leg for resources that still need to be printed out... laminated... and cut out. (As evidenced below...) So, to make a very long story short, I've decided to drop prices, permanently. When it comes down to it... TpT is NOT all about making money. It's all about helping kiddos and teachers. I want to make my resources more accessible. I hope you enjoy my "sale"! I noticed that the prices are SLOWLY showing up, so don't be alarmed if it doesn't show up right away.
Oh, and if you're interested in taking a closer look at the "Too Cute to Spook" Centers... I snapped a few from the work station today! :) I trim around everything first so I can laminate three sheets at a time. I cut them out once they are laminated. This makes the laminating process faster and less wasteful. I laminate a lot... but I don't ever want to waste resources that my colleagues use too! :) I should also note that while taking these photographs.... I realized that I forgot to print a few of the orange student direction sheets. Oops! Guess what I was doing shortly afterward?! Printing those bad boys O-U-T! :)
Eventually, my piles were tamed... materials were put into piles and baggies... and my table was cleared. Of course, the whole time, I was being watched. Supervised, perhaps.
Today, I learned why the saying, "watching like a hawk" exists, because THIS GUY watched me the entire time! Ha! I tried to creep closer to the window for a picture after the table was cleared, but I startled him. Drat! Happy Sunday, friends!
