Tuesday - it must be chutney.
I worked in stores today and spent a good deal of time counting pots of chutney, jam, marmalade and other preserves across loads of shelving like this (sold some too!) This might seem fantastically dull but within these fixtures many, many hours are taken up that could be better utilised, and it is this productivity that I am trying to measure, to articulate to others, and to liberate. It might just be my ticket into a longer stint in my current contract, due to end reasonably soon. If you are an alert retailer you will see the potential. If you are a chutney expert, you might have issues with the merchandising. If you have a grip on sanity, you may not be bothered at all!
