Once upon a time, ChilliCrab lost her job. "Made redundant". It wasn’t the end of the world but it was a low point in ChilliCrab's life. She was scared. Yet she was also relieved because she was free ! Free to do whatever she desired. Free to run her own business.
Running a business? Well, while waiting for a new job to fall right into her lap, ChilliCrab decided to sell cookie mix. Cookie Mix in a Jar, to be exact. It seemed easy enough to do - you weigh out the ingredients and layer them inside a glass jar. Then tie on a tag containing directions.
But it was tougher than it seems, especially when the orders for Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Mix started pouring in. Every week, ChilliCrab had to purchase the ingredients needed for the Cookie Mix. Losing her day job had turned ChilliCrab into Scrooge! She refused to spend money on bus fare and delivery. So she takes a 20-minute walk with her little shopping cart to the nearest supermarket. Then she walks all the way with her full trolley.
