So much to say...

So little energy! I'll explain in detail a little later, but I have been really dragging. Two full time jobs is really getting to me. One of which, of course, I enjoy more than the other. ;)

Which brings me to a quick ramble. I have several business ideas to generate some extra money, since we're poor as all getout, but the one I reeeeeally want to get started ASAP is a crafty one. I just have no idea where to start. Obviously I can get supplies from the good ol' crafting store, but then what? How do I price stuff? I think I could just do shipping via USPS- those little flat-rate boxes have to be good for something, right?

Anyone have any ideas on how to set prices? Suggestions are very welcome!!

Well, it depends on what kind of crafty thing it is. There may be cheaper sources than the crafting store. For setting prices, I'd look at Etsy & see what similar items are selling for (you'll find a HUGE range probably). You ideally want to make at least 35% profit if you can. Again, it depends on what the item is. Some things you can make 60%+ profit, some more like 20%.
