Knowing the difference between period costs and product costs  is important. Period costs and product costs are record at different  times and effect the income statement and balance sheet differently. The  visit to Krispy Kreme allowed me to make the separation of the  two  costs in my mind. It also helped me determine what period costs and  product costs Krispy cream accumulates while conducting business. 

I couldn’t walk inside because the lobby was closed. I did  interact with the cashier. I also got a peak at one of the workers  boxing donuts. Off the bat I started making connections to period costs  and product costs. Product costs like the ingredients to make donuts.  The oil, flour, the glaze and even the boxes. They had other items on  the menu like assorted donuts and coffee. They didn’t have much staff.  From the glimpse I had there was one cashier, one person boxing the  donuts. I’m not sure if there was a manager on on duty or not. I thought  about the location of the area and the time of day I visited. Also, I  thought about the lobby being closed. All of those factors would lead to  less customers at the location. Less staff needed. 

This experiment helped me see a business from the aspect of an  owner or an accountant instead of the customer. As a customer I ordered a  3 pack of donuts for $3.69. They came fresh, in a box.  In the aspect,  of a business owner I thought about the the cost

s  associated to produce the donuts. The product costs of making each  donut like price of flour, sugar, oil, the price of the box the donuts  came in. The cost of labor for the two employees that I did see. Period  costs like the renovations that were being made to lobby. I relearned  the differences between period costs and product costs. 

This experiment relates to the real world because I also own a  small business. This experiment helped me understand how to maximize my  profit. I’m still learning but this really helped me with my inventory  process. My product costs need to be low so I can profit on items. I  have to pay for gas, the shipping to get items to me, Facebook ads for  promotion. All of these things have to be considered when I come up with  the sales price of my products. In addition, I can use this knowledge  when going forward in my bachelors degree. I have other classes to take  that accounting ties into so this knowledge will be a great benefit.

 This experience was different. I’ve done it before being that  I’ve taken this course before. However this time I actually understand  the differences. I understand why certain restaurants why restaurants  and businesses with better quality food/products charge more. For  instance McDonald’s and Wendy’s. Two fast food chains with the same  products catering to the same type of consumers. Wendy’s prices are  slightly higher than the prices at McDonald’s. With this being an online  course we don’t get to see our peers face to face. The discussion help  me correspond, understand the material from a different aspect or learn  something that I overlooked.
