Setting Prices

Something I’m having a problem with: setting prices in my shop.
I don’t know what’s too expensive. What’s too cheap. What’s just right.

Suggestions on cost? I’d like to actually, you know, make some money. 🙁 I haven’t really made any, but I don’t want to close. I want to stay open, but it’s getting hard to keep it going with more money going towards memberships and the like because my ass sucks at making items.

So, any suggestions would be wonderful!!

The Plans of a Thursday

I’ve got a lot I need to do today, :lol:.

  1. Write three posts
    This counts as the first one
  2. August 30 tags for members
  3. 3 Halloween/Fall tags
  4. Laundry
    Already started load #1
  5. At least one WP theme
  6. At least one layout
  7. At least one tube set
    I’m working on a frame set that I like

I had to unhooked the router. I have no clue what’s going on, but it only works for a few hours, and then screws up everything. I think a good portion might have to do with the Wii itself, which is weird. That, or someone keeps attempting to use our connection (password-protected). Either way, we can only use it for a few hours, then we have to disconnect, and then re-start the PC, :impatient:. It drives me nuts!

It was the box

Well, it looks like it was the box, again, XD. They said if it happens again, though, it’s most likely the DVD/VCR combo throwing back feedback. For now, though, they have a feedback-voltage blocker-thing on the internal wires 🙂

Running so well we even have the router up, 😛

*dances*

Oh this is ridiculous

Looks like we’re most likely cancelling digital.
Not because we can’t afford it.
Not because we don’t like it.
But because we’ve had a working box a WEEK, and it’s been out-out 3 times already, twice now for over 24 hours.

That, and when the tech came last week (Monday), to replace the box? They CHARGED us for the box. Though we have the quality assurance plan, though the tech SAW that it was stuck on the loading process. Saw that it wasn’t a problem with our set-up. $34 to say that we needed a new box. WTF? I would have hooked it up myself, FFS, but he had to do it, to make sure it wasn’t a problem with our lines (another thing we CAN’T be charged for because of the quality assurance plan). This is getting fucking RIDICULOUS!!

EDIT: 7:28pm
We’ve got a Cox person, PLUS a supervisor coming out tomorrow between 3 and 5pm.
That, and they credited the account for the billing that shouldn’t of occurred, AND the tech on the phone made a notation on the account NOT to charge for the visit tomorrow.

Josh is actually happy that I told him to give Cox one more shot. They surprised even me, XD

I’m not weird, I’m unique

Ha ha! Yeah, right! Don’t ask, you don’t want to know.

Okay, you want to know? Josh has this awesome body spray. It’s the Axe brand stuff (Essence is the scent). I love it, so while we were at Toys ‘R Us yesterday, the kiddos got stuffies, and I got myself a new one too. Madi got a blue unicorn, Ethan got Scooby Doo, and I got this extremely soft, adorable little horse. Now the horse reeks of Josh’s bodyspray, because I missed him, :lol:. Pathetic, right?

Got yesterday and today’s tags done. Josh threw me off schedule and I didn’t get anything done yesterday. Barely got a shower and make-up, XD. *grumble* Sometimes I hate Josh’s days off, :lol:, just because I get so used to being with the kids only during the day, and then he throws me for a loop, XD

Good news, though: Digital came up the evening I complained about it, :lol:. Josh goes, “We’ll just put in a movie” and five minutes later, up it comes, right on the NFL network, right at the start of a Colts game. *sweet*

And figures I’d mention that it’s back up and *boom* it goes down again *grumble*
And then it goes back up, :impatient: :grr:
