Ah, Leisure!

March 11th, 2018 at 08:42 am

I'm enjoying a very leisurely morning. One nice thing about being retired is that the daylight savings change makes no real difference at all. Just changing the clocks!

Tomorrow I'm going to do another mystery shop for the same chain restaurant, different location. I figure I'm already prepped for it, I might as well do it again! I'll get a free lunch this time. So far my mystery shopping earnings -- if they are approved -- are $28. That's not counting the value of the meals. I won't see the actual money till next month, however.

Yesterday I spent $2 on sponges at Jewel; also got a free stick of Toffifay candy and a free bottle or organic coconut juice. And I found a penny!

I also went to DSW to try on shoes. I was indeed awarded with a 500-point bonus (in the form of a card). I didn't even have to ask; a clerk came up and handed it to me as I was trying on the shoes. I will tell you I was very tempted to buy the shoes, but I knew it wasn't within my budget, so I put them back. I hope they are still there when I go back after pay day. However, there are lots of other options available if they are not. The particular pair I was trying on was 40% off -- but they were quite expensive in the first place. Nice shoes, though! I've always wanted Tretorns!

Back to my leisurely day....

    Well made shoes are worth it if you can afford them. I used to wear cheaper shoes because I couldn't.

    You are doing pretty well on your mystery shopping as well as finding a penny! Woo hoo!

    I did 4 auto shops In January and February. I went to an assigned dealer and discussed a particular model car with a specific salesman. Paid $200 last week. Have another two more later this month. I prefer grocery store shops since it is something I already have to do weekly but the company lost the contract with the store and I haven't figured out where the chain went. Paid $1500+ in reimbursements and $1500 in surveys payments last year.

    I have had pretty good luck finding shoes at DSW. The need for good arch support and cushioning is really important!

    I kind of wish they would do away with Daylight Savings altogether. Like on a national level. I think, by now, they cause more harm than good.

    I'm glad you're having fun with the mystery shops.

    If I found a pair of shoes that fit AND that I liked, I'd have a difficult time passing them up. Good for you!
