No-Spend Day

March 19th, 2018 at 01:56 pm

No spending yesterday, other than laundry.

After eating another serving of soup and a veggie plate dinner, I froze the soup and the snow peas. There is just too much to deal with right now.

I also have a lot of carrots, but they will keep longer and I can plug away at eating them.

I'm planning to make mac & cheese today -- the kind you bake in the oven. I also need to make some more bread and more granola. Not sure how much I'll accomplish today, since I usually have after school care on Monday.

The kids didn't call me this weekend about seeing Wrinkle in Time, so I have a little extra money which I can use toward eating out with the librarians on Wednesday. I'll RSVP today. We're going to a taco place; it shouldn't be too expensive.

I keep checking my mystery shopping sites, but everything offered is just too far away to be viable. Speaking of mystery shopping, I haven't received any of my compensation yet. I know it takes some time, but at this point I want to make sure I'm actually going to get paid before I commit to very much more.

Another problem is that they send me offers for sites in Chicago. That's problematic, because parking in Chicago would cost about what the compensation would be. Plus, I would just rather not go to unknown parts of the city. So many areas are not safe.

Well, time to get to the gym!

    I get paid anywhere from 2 weeks to 2 months for my mystery shopping. Good on you to be cautious about taking more shops before getting paid just to make sure. The only time I've ever not been paid is when the owner of the company died and it went bankrupt. Most companies have a way to check that your report has been approved so maybe look around on the sites and that might ease your worry.

    I only get paid once a month for all the previous months shops for mystery shopping not right away. Check the policy of your company.

    I think you are smart to wait until you get paid before you do any more. And I can see your point on taking the shops that wouldn't be worth it, or even worse, dangerous. No extra cash is worth it.

    Hope you have a delightful librarian luncheon.
