Well, as long as you are dropping off books, how about my dry cleaning? And, since we all go to the same grocery store, it really is not any more trouble to add my items to your shopping list! And while you are at my house, you can fix us a pot of tea, sit down in the chair (after you have helped fold the laundry on it) and read the book out loud to me!
Thank-you so much! You are such a sweetie!
ok, The real RegionMom came back...
What I do for my piano students-
I write, book needed -- title, author, number in series, type (theory, ear training, lessons, solo, etc) and that I will need it by next lesson. OR, contact me by specific date listed, and I will buy the book for you, with a 50 cent overcharge per cost of book.
That way, I can plan my errands around my trip to the music store. And, with my small teacher discount, I make-up the cost of gas and time. I had one mom deliver a blank check to me! Said she could not find the books. I had actually delayed my trip until that very morning for another student, buying the same
book. IF she had contacted me, I could have purchased another, instead of having her son wait another week, and my being scared about misplacing a blank check!
Perhaps you could offer something similar, buying books, plus tax and a service and delivery fee. But only if you would want to.
