So, it seems every place that sells pine needles have different amounts in each bale. I get so many calls from customers asking "how much per bale?"
So how do you deal with this question? Thanks!!

I charge 7.00 to 7.25 per a bale for long leaf. Depending on the amount I have someone else spread them for 5.25 a bale.

So you charge over 12/bale for spreading? Maybe I misunderstood what you meant.

no 7.00 to 7.25 per a bale. (price includes pine needles and and spreading) the price vary depends on how much I can get the bales for.
If I am spreading 50+ bales I just pay somebody 5.25 a bale to spread them. I make 2dollars a bale...
was that clearier?

So if you charge 7 and pay someone 5, that leaves you with 2/bale. I see that part, but what about the money you spend on buying the bales? Even if they were as low as 2/bale, then you would end up with zero/bale. I'm confused again. I would have called to ask this, but I didn't wanna bug you with this silly question.
