After I closed the restaurant I swore to myself that I would be picky about mystery shopping. The truth is I've become just another truck stop whore, and I'm proud of it... pardon the offensive analogy if you do indeed sell yourself at truck stops.
Seriously though, I've picked up the pace and October has been really busy. Even though I have a couple of week-long leisure trips planned in November along with Thanksgiving, it looks like November will be a good month for shopping as well.
I mentioned recently that I want to aggressively pay off some of my debt, and this drives me to shop. I think I'm still being fairly selective about which shops I take and the minimum rate I will accept. But I am taking on more and more work, particularly gas stations. Restaurants - not so much. Today I am shopping a fast food place because I negotiated a $25 commission. I have control issues when it comes to eating right so I find it best to avoid fast food shops to help control my weight.
One extra benefit to all the shopping I am doing is that my fuel cost will be next to nothing this month. I have 30 gallons of fuel in containers in the garage and will be adding to that today and tomorrow.
