Stocking the Shelves

March 2011 WiP

Well, this little project didn’t quite turn out as planned.

I figured I’d sort through the piles and make a list of things that were finished and Ready-for-Sale (RfS)– but I have one thing for that list and a very very long list of Work-in-Progress (WiP) pieces that will probably be finished by January 1st.

Some of them are very heavy on the probably… and it’s not just the horses.

Could vs Should

So of that very long list, I’m wondering what I should focus on getting done.

There are a couple avenues of attack that I see: I can finish the projects with the least amount of work left to do, I can finish the projects with the greatest monetary reward, or I can finish a set number of projects in each sales category.

Least amount of work and greatest monetary reward are both probably going to be model horses, but working by category means a lot more writing projects.

Stocking the shelves also means I have a more impressive storefront– abet one with a lower dollar total.

I think I might go with the third option, but that also means I’m going to have to have a better idea of what’s going onto each shelf. Right now I have very general categories (model horses, writing, other artwork), but broad definitions leads to piles of WiP like the one above.

So the next step is to go back through the inventories I’ve made and see how the different items settle out into subcategories. If I can pick one thing from each subsection that is just about done to polish off, then I should have a relatively decent pile of products by the time Jan 1st rolls around.

Plus it will keep me from having nine thousand model horses and nothing else. Hopefully.

Once more into the fray! *puts on her spelunking hat*
