Ebay, Found $, Mystery Shopping

March 28th, 2010 at 03:19 pm

I'm hoping to list some items on Ebay today. I sold 1 item so far, four others are listed all with bids which will be ending in a couple of days. I also have to contact someone that may be interested in an item I listed on Craigslist a few weeks ago.

Yesterday while at the grocery store I found 5 pennies on top of a gumball machine. So a bit of extra income there!

Friday evening I did another restaurant mystery shop. It ended up being about $7, after reimbursement, for 2 people at a casual restaurant. Not bad IMO!

I received a DD in Pay Pal for $30 for a mystery shop payment, so more $ to the extra income account!

$3 Extra Income

I got a DD into Pay Pal today from Pinecone, so I will add $3 more to the extra income fund. I did that survey over the weekend.

Sunday News

Today is a NSD!! I haven't even left the house.

Yesterday I found a dime and a penny while running some errands. We did another mystery shop on Friday evening.

I received an Amazon GC by email from Reward Port Surveys. It was for $10.

Today I listed 5 items on Ebay today. One of them had a bid on it. Another one has a watcher.

Other than that...not much going on here.

Have a wonderful day!

Laundry & Survey Money + Mystery Shop Income

March 21st, 2010 at 04:20 am

Today I did a few loads of laundry, which I hung outside. One of the children didn't empty their pockets, so I have 51 cents to contribute to my extra income for this week.

In addition, I received a $10 survey check today from Global Opinion Panels.

Last month I did a restaurant mystery shop which I got a $35 DD in my Pay Pal account for a couple of days ago.

Gotta love extra income!!

Busy with Mystery Shopping!

March 14th, 2010 at 07:15 pm

I have done three restaurant mystery shops in the last week. The food has been delicious. The service, on the other hand, especially at the one place was not very efficient with less than acceptable wait times after ordering meals. But all in all, not bad considering we can eat out for minimal OOP expenses due to reimbursements and shopper fees. I have another casual restaurant assignment scheduled for tomorrow night.


I have found a total of 2 dimes, 1 nickel, and 2 pennies over the course of the last few days while doing these assignments. So 27 cents in found money.


I got a $2 check from Survey Savvy on Friday. Yesterday, I received my Rite Aid monthly check rebate for $12.99. So a bit of extra money to send to the extra income fund.


Today is another NSD! Yeah!!

Friday Update

March 12th, 2010 at 12:20 pm

Not much financial going on here. I did a mystery shop at a restaurant for dinner earlier in the week. I have another one scheduled for tonight...

I've found a nickel and penny in the last few days, so 6 cents to the extra income fund!

Have a wonderful Friday!

Today was a No Spender!

March 8th, 2010 at 01:28 am

I didn't go anywhere today or spend any money...

I did do some yard work--picking up sticks and raking some residual leaves from the fall.

Nothing much financial going on today. I got a Prevacid rebate ready to mail out tomorrow.

Have a great evening!

$25.19 Extra Income

March 6th, 2010 at 01:45 pm

A couple of weeks ago I completed a mystery shop at a local chain restaurant. Yesterday a $25 reimbursement was deposited into my Pay Pal account. In addition a PP deposit was made from You Data for $0.19!!

I will add this amount to my extra income fund!

I got Staples Rewards in the mail yesterday for $31.30. I'm thinking about using it to get some ink cartridges for my printer.

I would prefer to get cartridges refilled at WAG, but I haven't had much luck with that. When I had my Dell printer, I inquired about refilling those but the rep told me that they can't refill that brand. Now I have an Epson printer, but I haven't inquired about getting those cartridges refilled.

Citi Rewards Check

March 3rd, 2010 at 01:25 am

I received a check in the mail today from Citibank that I requested a little over a week ago. It is for $62.45. I will add that to my extra income fund!

Another Penny!

Today I found a penny at work in the bathroom. Another small addition to the extra income fund! Smile
