Subject: Cost of ABM bread
Hi, don't have an ABM but think some of these numbers might be adjusted in
a different way...

Perhaps you should consider using the average number of loafs you make a
month. Then the number of years you want to write off the cost of the ABM.
This would give you a cost per loaf for the ABM...?

The $0.60 should be divided by the number of items you picked up on the
trip.
Just a thought...
