For this first week I've decided to be the first one to share with my readers about my Etsy shop and some tips I use to save time. My Etsy shop is Kotona and I make useful home organization accessories that look good as well as helps with keeping your home neat and tidy. My items are made mainly of cotton fabrics with a large offering of organic cotton home organizers.
Etsy Time Saving Tip
I found that writing description takes a very long time for me as I am not a good writer. So I developed several lines of general information that I can use with multiple products, example - product function, cleaning instructions, how the item is packaged... etc. However I fill the first paragraph with as many descriptive keywords as possible to enable my item to be found in searches.
Other Time Saving Tip
I hate to do the dishes! We have a 1.5 sink that is one big sink and a half size sink in the kitchen. What I do is fill the half size sink with hot soapy water and soak all the cutlery in them. When I am finished with the rest of the dishes the food has dissolved off the cutlery and they are clean! Just rinse and they are done.
