With a new month comes new opportunities, but mystery shopping just isn't as fulfilling lately. I have done several shops this week but the pay has been low - $5 or $10 for each shops usually. With gas so high I am barely breaking even.
Instead of banging my head against the wall I've made the most of the situation. I had to have the bathtub replaced at one of my properties. That type of work is more than I want to take on so I hired someone. To save a little I agreed to finish the drywall and paint. When I finish my tenant will have an almost new bathroom. It feels good to do some manual labor.
I also visited my grandfather in the nursing home and mowed his lawn. He is a little more than an hour away and has a fair sized lawn. I combined this trip with four mystery shops and made a day out of it.
My partner is off work today so I probably won't do too many shops. There is a clothing store shop on the other side of town and I have a couple of coupons for a free movie at a theater in that area so we might do that.
