It looks like this months to do list is going to be pretty much the same as last months to be completely honest. I don’t have that many exciting things planned, basically just work and more work, but since I find these posts so helpful, I’m still going to keep them up. Before we get into that, here’s a little update on last months to-do list. I still haven’t finished the new products, I know it’s going to be a while anyway before they’re ready for sale but I was hoping to knuckle down on them last month but I just didn’t get the time really. I’m definitely going to make more time for it this month thought. I’ve caught up on my taxes so far too, but obviously I’ll still have to catch up on this month, which hopefully will be a lot quicker haha! I also managed to finally watch a bit of TV! I haven’t started anything new, I just caught up on a few things I was behind on, and I have finally finished The Originals, my heart shattered a little bit on that last episode though. I did manage to take a couple of half days off, which really helped because I wasn’t very well at all, I’m hoping to do that again this month too, but this time, I hope to not be poorly haha. Right, now lets get on with the March To Do List.
Sometime last year I got into the routine of writing for the blog on certain days without letting anything distract me, but since the shops got a bit busier I’ve not been able to spend as much time as I used to just typing away. I have a load of post ideas and a load of products to review so it’s not like I don’t have anything to write, I’m just struggling to prioritise it right now and I’m hoping to change that this month.
Re-arrange the shop listings
This is one mammoth task I’m setting myself here but I’m gong to attempt it. Etsy listing fee’s are getting a bit ridiculous now so I know the only way to solve it is to double up on my listing, which then would mean less charges but god it’s going to take a lot of time. I’ve done a few so far, but there’s a lot. I’m going to have to re-take a hell of a lot of photos (I have over 200 listings right now), edit them all and put them up, change all the prices and the info, even the options. Wish me luck anyway!
Start working with some charities.
I’m hoping this month to finally start making some charity bookmarks to sell on the shop and raise a bit of money for charity. I’ve always had this idea since I opened the shop, I love working with charities and helping them raise money and I think making some bookmarks for them would be amazing and I think so many people would love to know that they’re helping a charity just by buying themselves a bookmark! I have loads of ideas up my sleeve and I cannot wait to get on with them!
Have a book clear out.
Okay I’ve said this before, and I have actually managed to create a pile that I’m going to clear out, but I still haven’t gotten around to it… and my bookshelves are ridiculous now, I can’t fit another book on there. So one day this month I am going to take all my books off my bookshelves, again, and re-read all the blurbs and decide what I want and what I don’t want and give some to charity and sell a few unread ones online. I’m feeling quite in the mood to get rid of quite a few books now so hopefully this will go better than last time!
