Thanks for your reply!
I use the alarms on my cellphone frequently, and for everything. Even to help me remember when to water my plant!
I know that there are other ways to calculate prices on crafted items. I want to try several different ways. I know some people figure in an hourly wage or some kind of compensation for their time. I just wondered how do they know (or keep track of) how much time to multiply that hourly wage by? Are they just 'guesstimating' their time? Or do they keep some kind of written/typed schedule, like a timecard? Are there other ways to figure it out?
I haven't officially started my business yet and right now things I do toward starting my business, personal stuff and everything else just kind of flow together. I'll be working on a personal project and get an idea for the business. Most of the time I'll immediately switch gears and start looking up info for the new idea. I could be at it for 5min or 5hrs before I go back to what I was originally working on. It's my natural flow and very possibly compensating for my time isn't going to be very feasible, but I won't know unless I try. I'm very thorough that way. I can't help it.
I do appreciate your input though. Ringing bells are my most used time-reminder! I think one going off every hour though might annoy my roommates. I'll have to work on that idea...
