Yeah, you know Gomez, everything takes longer for him. It’s an hour just to go to the store everyday. Then an hour to cut up the fruit. An hour and a half to serve. An hour to clean up.
Slow and Steady wins the race - That's Margie's motto

I’m learning the “buy a second for back up” quickly! I won’t feel comfortable until I’m basically a hoarder, lol! Thanks for the advice!

And there is the first official piece of advice you've shared with others! Welcome to the group.

We have a backup of mostly everything that a guest can destroy or lose, from soap dispensers to towels to keys to coffee makers.

That's good planning! We do the same thing for All supplies - food - low on eggs and ham - put it on the list - napkins running low - list it!
Pledge - last bottle - list it! We have very little problems with STOCK as long as we are religiously placing items on the list immediately when noticed. Skip the procedure = forget the item. KISS it. Keep It Simple Stupid. Sound to easy but IT WORKS!!!

4 units by myself, 2 stand-alones, 2 inn rooms with breakfast included. Other meals by request. Food service is a huge time drain, so if not needed, or you don't enjoy it - avoid. I'm in the middle of almost nowhere, so food service is a nice alternative for guests. I do like doing it. Maybe not so much at the end of August! This forum saved us from numerous mistakes and is a huge factor in our success. I discovered it many years ago while an aspiring. It was great to soak up a lot of wisdom and humor while taking breaks from a job I was not so fond of. Hours now are actually longer in high season, but I'm not nearly ready to hang it up yet! Hugs and best wishes.
