1 19:02 < Nick> Did you get some snacks? 'cos I could get some now if you like. 2 19:03 < Nick> (being 100m from Cash&Carry Balcatta) 3 19:03 < rvvs89> Well, after tilting my head up about 30 degrees, I noticed we do indeed have some chips 4 19:04 < rvvs89> But we have nothing left in reserve now so that would be great 5 19:06 < Nick> Good-o, any requests? Twisties, I heard. With a preference to what's on special. 6 19:06 < Nick> ...and how much? 7 19:12 <@trs80> nick: pods I believe 8 19:14 < Nick> trs80: OK. 9 19:15 < rvvs89> Nick: Which Nick are you? 10 19:15 < Nick> 'Evening, Sam. Any requests from Cash&Carry? 11 19:15 < Nick> Nick [NTU] Bannon 12 19:16 < rvvs89> if you're goig to get some stuff, get about $300 worth 13 19:16 < rvvs89> make sure to include a sizeable amount of pods, preferably Mars, they sell pretty quickly 14 19:16 < rvvs89> we 15 19:16 < Nick> That's quite a lot from Cash&Carry - it can expire, and I can go again any other day if it helps... 16 19:17 < rvvs89> good point, but this time I reckon get alot of pods, say $100 worth, we'll make $120 out of that all up 17 19:17 < rvvs89> not as much as some of the other stuff, but still decent, and considering how many of them we could sell 18 19:17 < rvvs89> it's Rowan here btw 19 19:18 < rvvs89> last time I went up there with rufus and we got about $400 worth of stuff and we've gone through most of that, and that which we have left probably wont expire before we sell it 20 19:19 < Nick> Next week will start to be a bit hotter, so pod/m&m/smartie chocolate is good; but OK: box of Mars or similar, $100 of pods, twisties and another box or two of chips? 21 19:19 < rvvs89> actually we're pretty good for chips, maybe get some more burger rings though 22 19:19 < rvvs89> we've got alot of smiths though 23 19:19 < rvvs89> we're running low on starbursts 24 19:19 < rvvs89> and m&ms 25 19:20 < coxy> if we're going to stock chips regularly again the treasurer should probably be tracking sales 26 19:20 < rvvs89> so the pods, then mix the rest up with starbursts and m&ms 27 19:20 < coxy> last time we tried we lost a decent amount on every box 28 19:20 < rvvs89> yeah, I 29 19:20 < rvvs89> I'll have to talk to scott about that 30 19:23 <@trs80> coxy: what from, expiry dates? 31 19:23 < coxy> yeah 32 19:23 <@trs80> even when picking the boxes with the latest expiry dates? (*adds to FAL wiki page*) 33 19:24 < coxy> I don't remember that far back 34 19:24 < coxy> I'm sure if someone was tracking sales vs. freebies then a happy medium could be reached 35 19:25 < coxy> ie. "buy x amount with at least y months of code left and we're likely to sell most/all" 36 19:25 < coxy> chips were always a low profit item so even a few freebies made the box a loss from memory 37 19:27 * trs80 nods 38 19:36 < Nick> It varies a lot - there's usually something decent on special and if it's too close to expiry, skip it even if it is popular. 39 19:37 < Nick> ...but buying the same stuff every time at full price does cut into the margins. 40 19:37 < Nick> ...or getting too much at once.
