New Mystery Shop

April 3rd, 2018 at 06:53 am

I've been approved for a mystery shop at a grocery store -- the same company where I messed up -- so I guess I will not be punished for my mistake. This shop will take place this weekend.

I went to Panera yesterday morning for my bagel breakfast. There are three Panera's in my area, so I sort of rotate among them, so I'm not begging for my bread to the same person every day. Yesterday I had them split, toast and butter the bagel and it did not cost extra. And it was delicious.

Then I went to the gym, and then to Aldi, where I spent $13 on cream cheese, creamer, butter, crackers and garlic.

And then I went to library, where I checked out an armful of books. And I also paid a $1.35 library fine.

In the afternoon, I picked up the boys and took them to Steak N Shake for shakes - $3.

Variables are at 25%.

I've been doing well at finding change this month -- so far .11, mostly pennies. I guess pennies on the ground are a sign of spring!

Speaking of found money, I picked up a kid's abandoned jacket at school yesterday and put it where they generally pile up the lost things. I felt a crackle in the pocket and there were some bills wrinkled up in there. I left them there, of course, but now I wonder if someone else will take them, and if I should have taken them for safe keeping. But how would I ever know whose jacket it is? I suppose I could have taken the jacket to the office, but I didn't think of it then. Ah well, maybe he'll get it back with money intact, I hope, and if not, maybe he will have learned a lesson.

    Aldi is shopped too. It is one of the companies you mentioned being signed up with! It pays very little, but I always take it because I go there anyway. It goes fast, so if you see it you need to grab it right away.

    Good deal on the mystery shop. Glad you weren't punished for not doing it before.

    DH found a penny the other day...change hasn't been very plentiful around here. I sort of wonder if it is a sign of our economy struggles in our community.

    I was always shocked at how many jackets, gloves, shoes, scarves, were not claimed at any of the schools I worked at. Sad, actually. Most of the schools I worked in were high poverty.

    Thanks, Laura, I will look for the Aldi shop.
