Party!

So I had my Tupperware party the other night.  I was really worried that I wouldn't have very many orders but I did pretty well.  I ended up getting about $150.00 worth of free stuff.  My consultant was wonderful.  It was actually her first party.  She did a great job.

We had fun visiting and eating and drinking margaritas.  The consultant made a salsa using the products.  It was kind of chunky but tasted good.  Some of my friends had never been to a Tupperware party and did not own any.  Two of the girls decided to have their own parties.

Tupperware has changed a lot in the many years since I last had a party.  For one thing the prices have gone waaayyyy up.  I guess that happens with everything though.  Also, I remember the orders being sent to the dealer and she delivered to the hostess.  Now it all gets shipped directly to the hostess.  I think that is good in a way but the dealer does not get to check and make sure that the order is correct that way. 

One of the things that really bothered me is the shipping and handling.  There is a 10% shipping and handling fee with a minimum of $4.50 shipping and handling for each individual order.  Even if you only order a $15.00 item.  I had nine orders from my party so that was a total of at least $40 for my order.  Actually it was more because some people ordered enough that their S&H was more than that.  I actually had more orders than that but added a few of them together so each person would not get screwed over the minimum.  I can't see that a box or two of Tupperware should cost more than $50 to FedEx to my home.

All in all it was a good experience and I can't wait for all of my stuff to get here.  I'll try to post photos then.
