Assuming the neighbor lady is a friend, I would only charge her the cost of materials and tell her that as long as she could wait and let me do them in my free time, that I would treat it as a favor and not a job. If she can’t wait and wants to pay to commission you for your work, then she needs to be prepared to pay for materials plus whatever your time is worth. Maybe since she’s a friend, you cut her a break on the 25% markup.

Of course, I’m a hobbyist and not a professional so my time is worth a lot less than a pro. If it’s taking away from real profit generating jobs, then throw my opinion right in the trash!
