What if you found you could get 50% off the products you use if bought them 4 times a year in order to meet the company’s minimum order? I’m thinking about doing this for the makeup and skin care products I use. I buy them anyway. They require a starter kit purchase that I’ll equate to Costco executive membership dues. The starter kit is a one time purchase – not an annual fee.
I put everything I regularly use into a spreadsheet. With $30 worth of gifts thrown in, it does meet their quarterly minimum.
If the Money Game bought it, I could “buy” the products at retail from that budget category as I run out. I’m also free to sell them to other people at retail. The person from whom I buy Mary Kay is super. She has never tried to sell me and that’s why I chose her when I needed to switch skin care products. She promises I won’t be pressured to sell and I believe her because that how she operates.
I’ve been busy trying to think of how to get $3,700 come up with $185. I have some yard sale things together on a shelf but I keep stalling on listing those things. Some will only get a few dollars and I wonder if I’ll pay more in gas running to meet someone than I’ll actually make.
I never saw myself as someone who could sell makeup but I keep saying this game is taking me places I never thought I’d go. As always, I’d love to hear your comments.
We have done so well shopping at Costco. We’re able to stay under budget now plus I get those crazy rebate checks twice a year. Part of me thinks this is more of the same. The other part of me can’t stop thinking of “I Love Lucy” in the episode called “The Business Manager”. We caught that the other night on TV and I was laughing so hard, I was crying.
