So much to do, so much to blog!
- Do we count time?
- How does one price surplus materials donated by friends?
- Factoring in electricity for heat & light while working at home during the day is a consideration
- Purchasing glue, thread and any other extra bits and pieces needed, albeit sourced as cheaply as possible, has to be factored into the equation
Back to pricing - If I add everything up and factor in the time, in case this new project 'takes off' and I need to pay someone to help (remember this is a frugal entrepreneurial challenge), then we're looking at about £3.50 per item plus postage and packaging. With current pricing structures coupled to the fact that we cannot cram a McGonk through a large letter postal slot, 1st Class postage amounts to £2.70, but then there's still the cost of the packaging, getting to and from post office (my nearest one is several miles away) and it all adds up to quite an amount.
Would anyone be prepared to pay over £6 for the priviledge of owning one of these wee gonks, I wonder? That remains to be seen.
