    Ive had several tips lastw eek and the week before even though im due round again before xmas all being well.

    But to maximize tips ive found writing 300 cards helps, these are cards ive got cheap after xmas last winter so didnt cost much. You end up with a lot more cards and a lot more tips, just got to post them all now :oops:

    I wrote all mine out on Thursday. All of my four weekly customers have one more clean before Xmas although I'm away for a week the second week of December. This is my first proper Xmas as I was part time last year so it will be interesting to see how I get on.

    I can't be bothered with all that sending card stuff. Either they wanna tip or they don't

    Paul I know wot u mean. I just think it's almost like asking for money. U leave an Xmas card. Some feel obliged to give u one back then with cash in. Don't get me wrong. If they offer a tip I grab it I just won't send a card hoping for money in return

    If it works for ya paul then go for it mate. I charge my customers enough. I don't need to remind em that they might like to give me even more money for just doing my job. We prob earn more than they do anyway
