Retiring Items and Upcoming Price Increases

Can you believe it? July is one-half gone. I always find this time of year a little sad because it seems that the summer is one-half over. Honestly I am a wilted flower when it is hot and humid so I will not be complaining when the worst of the summer heat is behind us, but I am not going to hope that time moves faster as it seems to be rolling along at record speed. Now if it could be no hotter than 80 degrees with low humidity and a slight breeze every day maybe I would have a different outlook about summer.

One good thing about the month of July marching on is CTMH is on the brink of releasing the new Annual Inspirations, but sadly that means there are some retiring items. I first posted the retiring item list on June 14, 2014 and if you check out that post you will find some items have already sold out. There are still plenty of wonderful items on the retiring items page so be sure to check them out (that is where you get the most up-to-date information about what is in stock too; once and item is gone it will no longer appear there). Edited to add: the purchase of retiring items does count toward a $50 order which allows you to purchase the SOTM for $5.

While previewing the new Annual Inspirations (valid from August 1, 2014 to July 31, 2015), I learned that a few items will be increasing in price on August 1. You will find a complete list below. Be sure to place your order for any of items below before midnight on July 31, 2014 to avoid paying the higher price.

While I am like you and I hate to pay higher prices for things, this is the first price increase since I became an Indepenent Consultant in March 2012. Just like we are paying more for office supplies, groceries, gas, etc., so is CTMH. I believe it was not an easy decision on CTMH's part to increase prices. Anyhow, act now before you might have to pay a little bit more for these products.

If you do not have a CTMH Independent Consultant to answer any questions you may have, I would be happy to assist you and would be delighted if you make a purchase from me.
