Simple Treasures for Sale New Years Resolutions

As I am sure you are doing this time a year I am doing some planning for the new year.   I have come up with the following New Years Business Resolutions that I am going to do my best to see through.

1.  Work on lowering shipping prices
I understand that no one likes to pay shipping.  I myself find it difficult to pay shipping on things I order online.I pledge to do my best to lower my cost on the shipping I pay so that I can pass the savings onto you.  Hopefully in the end I would like to offer free shipping to everyone and still keep the prices low on the products.

2.  Work on quality of photos for website
I am most certainly not  a professional photographer.   I have learned a little and hopefully will expand on what I have learned to improve the quality of the photos on the website.

3.  Work on expanding makeup lines
I would like to expand on the items I sell in the makeup section of the website.  From time to time I may be asking for everyone’s input in order to keep the options fresh and so that there is something for everyone.

4.  Work on expanding products for men
While working with Bradley University it was pointed out several times that the website doesn’t offer enough items for men.   I plan on working towards expanding that section of the website as well.   From time to time I may be asking for everyone’s input on different ideas of what everyone would like to see.

I am always open to anyone’s input so if there is something you would like to see let me know and I will see what I can do to accommodate you.

Year End Reflection

As I am sure everyone has noticed 2019 has been a very busy and active year for Simple Treasures.   We have done our best to but our best foot forward and stay true to our core values.

  1. A commitment to integrity, fairness and responsibility
  2. Delivering our very best in all we do, holding ourselves accountable for results.

In 2019 we implemented several new ways of communication.  Not all have come easily for us and we have had some bumps along the way.  Some examples are listed below.
 

  1. Weekly newsletter
  2.  Instagram Stories
  3.  Facebook Stories
  4. Posted new products on twitter
  5. Text message advertising
  6. Google My Business
  7. Holiday Flash Sales
  8. Facebook Messenger New Product Alerts
  9. Billboards

We have tried to send some interesting information in our weekly emails instead of constantly pushing for sales.  Not sure if we have succeeded with this but it was never our goal to be pushy.   We have only wanted to interact with our customers.

Along with our trying to provide information in a fun and informative way we have also tried to gather input from our current customers on what they wanted to see on the website.   We have set out to accomplish this 2 different ways.

        1.  Survey Monday Email
        2.  Bradley University Case Study

The information we received back has been invaluable and we can’t express enough our thanks to those who completed the survey.   We also want to thank the students at Bradley University for the case study they completed.   We hope to make several more improvements in 2020 as a result from that case study.

In the end we are very thankful for the opportunities that 2019 has brought to us and look forward to see what new things to come in 2020.

When to use Hand Sanitizer

www.simpletreasuresforsale.com

Our parents have always told us to wash our hands. For most of us growing up, that meant going to a sink and using soap and water. In the past few decades, hand sanitizers have become a part of everyday life. They’re everywhere. People often wonder if hand sanitizers work as well, or maybe even better, than old-fashioned hand washing. What’s the story here?

The short answer: Soap-and-water hand washing should be your first choice, but hand sanitizers are a good backup.

Why is traditional hand washing the best option? It cleans your hands better than hand sanitizer. Washing your hands with soap and water physically removes the germs; they bond with and wash down the drain with soapy lather.

Traditional hand washing more effectively eliminates some viruses and bacteria, specifically nor virus and a bacterium called c. difficult. C. difficult can cause severe diarrhoea, while nor virus causes vomiting and diarrhoea. If you are in danger of being exposed to either, insist on soap-and-water hand washing.

Hand sanitizers, however, will do just fine most of the time. They are especially useful when soap and water hand washing is not available or practical.

How hand sanitizers work

Hand sanitizers are usually an alcohol-based gel. The alcohol kills germs. Some hand sanitizers come in the form of a foam; Triclosan is the active ingredient in these. Foam hand sanitizers are more effective than gels, but they can also be more expensive. The dispensers are not as practical or portable as gels. In most cases, gel sanitizers will do the job.

To use hand sanitizer effectively, apply some to the palm of one hand, then rub it all over your hands until they are dry. Hit every surface, including under your nails.

Hand sanitizer does not remove things from your hands, such as pesticides, lead paint, grease, or dirt. You may see hand sanitizers at gas stations near the pumps. Don’t be fooled: They will not remove gasoline from your hands.

Another important note: Hand sanitizer is poisonous, so you should never swallow it.

How to wash your hands with soap and water

Get your hands wet with warm water. Warm water removes germs better than cold water. Remember, you are physically removing the germs. Apply soap to the palm of one hand and rub your hands together, making a lather that covers all surfaces of the hand, including the nails. It’s the rubbing that removes the germs. Do this for about 20 seconds, then rinse away the lather? If you did a good job, the germs will wash away with the soapy water.

When to wash vs. use sanitizer

You should wash your hands with soap and water:

• When exposed to viruses and bacteria that cause stomach trouble, such as nor virus and c. difficult.

• Before and after preparing food, especially raw meats, fish, poultry, or eggs.

• After going to the bathroom, changing diapers, or cleaning up animal waste.

• Before and after caring for someone who is sick.

• After handling garbage.

• Before treating a wound.

• After coughing, sneezing, or blowing your nose — especially if you are sick.

• When your hands are greasy or have visible dirt.

• To remove substances from your hands, like powders and paints.

• After handling animals, including pets.

You can use hand sanitizers:

• Before meals.

• Throughout the day.

• When soap and water are not available

What’s in your purse?

I have a friend who smokes and worries about smelling like smoke all of the time.   One day we were meeting at a restaurant for lunch.   When I arrived I could see her smoking in her car.  I pulled in got out and so did she.   As she greeted me she pulled a full sized bottle of Bath & Body Works Love & Sunshine out of her over sized purse.   She then proceeded to spray herself with it in an effort to get rid of the smoke smell.

Watching her do this made me wonder why she didn’t have the travel sized spray in her purse.  I also wondered what other products did she have in there?  So of course I asked.   She had a pursed sized hand cream and a foaming hand sanitizer.  I’m sure that over sized purse was heavier then all get out.

Just made me wonder how many woman are walking around with full bottles of products in their purses?

Why should you use hand sanitizer?

You know you need to keep your hands clean. As much as your hands serve you, they also put germs in contact with your mouth, eyes, nose, and many other parts of your body. We hope you’re already washing your hands with soap and warm water multiple times a day, as that is the best way to clean them, but another worthy alternative is hand sanitizer. If you haven’t already made this germ-fighter a staple on your shopping list, you may want to do so after learning about the benefits of hand sanitizer.

BENEFITS OF HAND SANITIZER

Benefit 1: Cleanliness

This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. One of the foremost benefits of hand sanitizer is just that: It sanitizes. These products were designed to kill germs, and they get the job done. When used properly, hand sanitizers can eliminate 99.9% of the germs on your hands. The CDC recommends washing your hands any time you’re around food (preparing it or eating it), animals, garbage, and more. When you find yourself in these situations, hand sanitizer is the perfect addition to (or occasional replacement for) washing your hands with soap and water.

Benefit 2: Portability

Last time we checked, you can’t take a sink on the go. In those situations where you need to wash your hands, there isn’t always going to be soap and water available. You can slip a small bottle of hand sanitizer in your glove compartment, a purse, or even your pocket for situations where you might want to wash your hands but either can’t find a sink or waiting for one is inconvenient (think long lines or far away restrooms). It’s perfect for when you’re grabbing a snack at a sporting event or have just left a public space, like the grocery store.

Benefit 3: Great for Group Settings

At the office, in the classroom, or in any space with lots of foot traffic, germs spread quickly. And even if you’re not getting ready to eat or taking out the garbage, other people’s germs can affect you (especially in close quarters). That’s why having hand sanitizer available is ideal for group settings. Teachers, students, and office workers can kill germs periodically throughout the day without having to leave their classroom or desk, and gym-goers can use a squirt of hand sanitizer before hopping on the next workout machine.

Benefit 4: Less Risk for Disease

Especially during flu season, minimizing your exposure to other people’s germs is crucial for your health. When you take a moment to sanitize your hands a few times throughout the day, you reduce your chances of getting sick. Even a quick trip to a friend’s house or the store can expose you to germs that could cause a cold, the flu, or other illnesses, so keeping your hands as clean as possible is important.

Benefit 5: Softer-Feeling Hands

This might be one of the most surprising benefits of hand sanitizer, but it isn’t too good to be true. Hand sanitizers that do not contain alcohol can actually improve the texture of the skin on your hands (note that hand sanitizers with alcoholwon’t have this effect). Some hand sanitizers contain emollients that soften your skin, giving you nicer-looking and smoother hands. You’ll definitely notice a difference in how moisturized your skin feels and looks. Avoid hand sanitizers that contain alcohol, as they wash away the skin’s natural oils and can cause the skin to crack, which in turns creates an entry point for bacteria.

There are many benefits of hand sanitizer, from fighting germs efficiently to fighting them conveniently (and even improving your skin). Without a doubt, using this germ-fighting product regularly throughout the day will boost your cleanliness and your health no matter where life takes you.
