Living Large with a small wallet

It’s easy to grab a few groceries here and there while mystery shopping. But if you do like I’ve mentioned countless times before and sign up for A LOT of mystery shopping companies you should, with a little work and a sprinkle of luck, be able to find a regular offering of high-end restaurants toContinue reading “Living Large with a small wallet”

You’re Going to do it Anyway

Granted, it’s great to conduct a mystery shop for grabbing some groceries, maybe taking your significant other out for a bite to eat, or even snagging that awesome Honey Baked Ham like we did yesterday. But there’s a lot of things you do all the time that, with a little planning and effort, you couldContinue reading “You’re Going to do it Anyway”

Expand the number of companies you shop for

A pantry full of groceries and going out to dinner or lunch aren’t the only things you can do on a mystery shop. Because I took the time to sign up for a lot of different MSC, I was able to snag this awesome “one-day only” shop and I’m actually getting reimbursed $4 more thanContinue reading “Expand the number of companies you shop for”

Double & Triple Dipping

It’s a rainy morning and I’m sitting in my office pondering the things I’m going to do today. I already know I’ve got to run out sometime today for a quick, one-stop mystery shop.

The Big Haul – plan your run and work the plan

I suggest that you plan ahead when making multiple shop runs in a single outing. Know what you’re going after,Continue reading “The Big Haul – plan your run and work the plan”

Dive in & Dig Deep

Another lucrative hobby I have is the buying of abandoned storage lockers. You’ve seen the fake crap on TV. In reality, you have to dig through a lot of garbage to find the rare high-valued “prize” item. However, just about every storage locker you buy can turn a profit. You simply have to work harderContinue reading “Dive in & Dig Deep”

A Mystery & an App

You’ve seen the spoils of a few of my shops this week. Tonight’s shop is a good example of how to make the most of when you have just a single shop to conduct rather than a run of shops all in close proximity like I’ll do this weekend. Not only did I score someContinue reading “A Mystery & an App”

When Zero is just too much

I hear folks all the time griping how they’re broke. They can’t afford to go out so they eat in all the time. I’ll tell you, being broke SUCKS! But if you take just a little initiative, you can start taking steps to having a bit more disposable income. I seriously doubt you’ll pick upContinue reading “When Zero is just too much”
