I'm listening to Sonata Arctica right now. I haven't listened to them in like two years. They were the first concert I ever went to.
Anyway! Yesterday, I had a closing shift and I completely forgot that we were now on Holiday hours which meant we closed an hour later! Which would mean that I might be home AT midnight! Which really sucks for my Tragic Tuesday sale! Because I wanted to be on time! I'm one of those people that HAS to be punctual. :/
So when it was closing time, I was getting irritated and pissed that we were closing with mostly new hires. I pulled them out at 9pm (again) and still, they couldn't finish in two hours X_x;
I think I also went over 5 hours (by ONE minute). But that was an accident and my manager even said so. Hopefully, I won't get in trouble for that...
Anyway, once I got home it was 11:50pm! The first thing I did after I dropped all my stuff on my bed was turn on my laptop. But I forgot how long it takes to load up (and if you're impatient, it takes even LONGER ;D). So I decided to just post up a message saying how sorry I was that I was late ;(
I had dinner, relaxed my feet for a bit before I went back to the laptop and posted up the sale. Unfortunately, my ETSY site wanted to be a butthole! So I linked that only the Storenvy site was selling. (Etsy deleted everything after I took off the vacation mode!) I definitely don't mind that because Storenvy has LESS fees than Etsy.
In 30 minutes, I got 6 sales! O_o; I was surprised. I honestly thought that I was only going to get 5 sales ;P
This is how many sales I got. These are my invoices. I'm known for my hand-written ones. I spent all day on these. When I did take a break, I was figuring out how to organize myself so I could do this easily. I decided:
-1 day filling full sized jars
-1 day filling clamshells
-1 day filling baggie samples
- 1 day filling LUCKY PACKS
- 1 day printing flyers/ingredient listings that I usually put in my "packaging"
I also made a spreadsheet. I needed to know exactly how many jars/clamshells I needed to use because I don't have many jars or clamshells left (I think I have 100 each).
This was my first time making a spreadsheet ;P I was quite mad because I accidentally closed the window and didn't save it X_x; so I had to re-do it.
I thought the spreadsheet would be easier to help me fill orders too. I'm thinking of doing another spreadsheet/checklist for orders.
(BTW, I had more on the spreadsheet; just took a quickstyle pic ;P The LUCKY PACK listings are wayyy on the bottom and I sold 4 (yay!))
I'm going to try to find a way to organize this better and since I stated that my turnaround time would be 10-14 business days; I'll have plenty of time.
At my job, whenever we have a BIG ASS SALE (ex: Black Friday, day before Christmas, Anniversary sale); the day/weekend afterwards... we (supervisors) have a form to fill out called "Correction of Errors". Basically, it's a "What could we have done better". I'm thinking of doing that for my Tragic Tuesday sale too.
Anyway, I don't know why I always end up blogging late into the night because I have an opening shift tomorrow ;)
