Another Check!

July 31st, 2009 at 11:53 pm

I got a refund check in the mail today for $3.29!

So it looks like I have $3.39 for the week (includes the dime I found yesterday)to add to the extra income fund!! Woohoo!!

Just When I Thought...

July 31st, 2009 at 02:31 am

...that I wouldn't have any extra income to add to my account this week, I found a dime! I went to Panera for lunch and right there on the counter at the register was 10 cents just waiting for me!

Hopefully I will have more to add to the fund for the week, but it isn't looking too good!

A No Spender

Today I didn't spend any money. Nothing else going on financially...

I need to go enter another mystery shop report online.

Have a great evening!

Over $5,000 In The Extra Income Fund!

July 26th, 2009 at 07:11 pm

I am adding the following to my extra income account since the last deposit:

$424.81...Saturday Income
$060.00...Mystery Shop Reimburse
$020.00...Insurance Fee Reimburse
$057.71...Refund checks
$000.15...Found Money

It totals $580.67, so now I have $5,353.33 in the extra income fund!!

Overpayment Refund

July 24th, 2009 at 01:45 am

I received a check in the mail yesterday from the physician's office for an overpayment on an office visit for DD. It is for $20, so I will include that in my extra income for the week.

I hope everyone is having a great week!

Mystery Shop Update

July 21st, 2009 at 05:27 pm

I got DD for doing 2 Texas Roadhouse mystery shops from last month. The reimbursement amount is $60 so I will add that to my extra income deposit for the week. I have another Texas Roadhouse assignment to do tomorrow evening. The children really enjoy going with me and best of all it is very low cost since I get most of it reimbursed as compensation.

Yesterday I got a $40 GC as reimbursement for a Cheesecake Factory mystery shop I completed a few weeks ago. I'm not counting that as extra income because I am able to use that as payment for the next assignment that I complete.

It Was a Busy Weekend!

July 21st, 2009 at 02:20 am

Of course Saturday I worked. I got out about 1 hour early...last patients (a family of three) didn't show for their appointments.

After I got home, I did laundry and yard work. I mowed the grass, pruned some bushes, and bagged the twigs/weeds.

Then Sunday I had another Cheesecake Factory mystery shop assignment to complete. Since it was for brunch, the children & I left at 9 AM, as it was about a 2 hour drive. It was located in a mall, so we did some window shopping (lots of high end stores that I have never bought anything at). After that we went to a tourist area near the bay and spent all day there. I bought several books for DD & DS at Barnes & Noble there...cost about $42. Then we got some ice cream that was $12. Throughout the day I found a dime & 4 pennies as we were walking around. Smile On the way home, we stopped at Walmart. We finally arrived back home about 11 PM. It was a fun day and everyone seemed to enjoy it.

I got another refund check in the mail today for $10.97.

DD & I walked the dog tonight and I found another penny along the 15 cents in found money over the last two days!

Have a great evening!

Samples, Survey, & Checks

July 16th, 2009 at 04:26 am

Today I received a free sample from Wal-mart that I requested a few weeks ago for a roll of Scott Toilet Paper and a package of Scott Flushable Wipes.

I did a Pinecone survey last night & today I $3 was DD into my Paypal account.

So far this week I have gotten $30.98 in refund checks in the mail.

Looks like I have another $33.98 towards the extra income fund!

Extra Income Deposit

July 15th, 2009 at 03:06 am

I am adding the following for last week to my account:

$452.52...Saturday income
$002.97...Refund check
$007.34...Mystery shop reimburse
$006.94...Ebay sale
$000.12...Found money

It totals $489.89, so that brings the amount in the extra income fund to $4,772.66.

A Nice Surprise!

July 13th, 2009 at 12:45 am

Yesterday I got my pay check at work for the last two weeks. Normally I have DD, but since boss was on vacation he didn't get payroll called in on time. I looked at my pay stub and noticed that I got paid for July 4th. I would have never expected it and actually wasn't planning on that money. I mean after all I only work at that office on Saturdays! I guess since the holiday fell on a Saturday that is the reason I got paid, but since it is a very PT position I was really amazedSmile

I felt that was very generous. We never even discussed holiday pay at the interview...

Mystery Shopping, Surveys, Found Money

July 12th, 2009 at 03:59 am

Last night I did another Texas Roadhouse mystery shop. I took DD and DS along. I spent $35.75 with the tip and will get reimbursed $35. So that's $0.25 for each person! Then we went to Rita's Italian Ice for dessert, as I had a mystery shop assignment to complete there too.

I received a $5 DD reimbursement for a Bruster's mystery shop that I did last month.

I got paid for a health care survey I did 2 weeks ago--$10. Also got a check in the mail today from Your2Cents for $10.

This morning I went to the ATM before work at a convenience store and found a dime and penny on the sidewalk. After work I stopped at another store and picked up a penny. So 12 cents in found money today!!

So I have a bit of extra money to add to the weekly deposit for the extra income fund.

Just an update

July 10th, 2009 at 11:49 am

I sold another item on Ebay this week. After shipping/selling fees I netted $6.94 so I will add that to my extra income fund.

Yesterday in the mail I got a refund check for $2.97 plus a Rita's mystery shop reimbursement check in the amount of $2.34...all of which will get added to the deposit for the week.

Have a wonderful Friday!

Have a great evening!

A No Spender!

July 5th, 2009 at 11:57 pm

I haven't had a NSD for a long time. I didn't go anywhere today, just stayed home.

I did some decluttering today. I had a pile of papers sitting on my desk. I filed the ones I needed to keep & threw the rest away. I am so amazed at how stuff accumulates!

Have a great evening all!

Extra Income Fund Deposit

July 5th, 2009 at 01:11 am

I haven't posted an update on my extra income funds in several weeks...just have been a little lax lately with keeping up the blog.

I've still been saving though. I deposited $589.96 into the account:

$424.81...Saturday income
$057.44...Citicard rewards check
$027.15...Ebay profits
$051.25...Global Test Market check
$010.00...Mystery shop
$016.76...Refund checks
$002.00...Survey savvy
$000.05...Found money
$000.50...You Data income

That brings the total in the account to $4,267.09!

Refund Checks + Gift Cards

July 3rd, 2009 at 11:17 pm

I got $6.88 in refund checks in the mail this week.

Today I transferred a prescription from another pharmacy for DD to earn a $25 GC at Rite Aid. The copay for generic prescriptions is $15, so I profited $10 there.

I recently got reimbursed for the Cheesecake Factory mystery shop I did a few weeks ago. The repayment of monies spent is rewarded in the form of a GC, so I got $30 for that. I have another mystery shop scheduled there for tonight, so I am able to use the GC for the assignment. This one I'm doing tonight pays $40 reimbursement!

So I will add the $40 from the GCs + the refund checks to my extra income fund for the week.

Have a great evening!!
