It's been awhile since I posted an update. Last month was good to us. My husband went to a model airplane auction. He was into them for years, but is no longer involved in the hobby. He went to the auction and sold almost $500 worth of items! He gave me $400 which I put toward a bill for blood work for him, a chiropractor appointment for me, an extra $50 student loan payment, and the rest went to short term savings.

Since I have talked about the mystery shopping recently, I figured I would also post my monthly income for that. I made $383 in cash in March. I made another $87.70 in reimbursements for food and other required purchases. Of course, that money comes from many different companies so it trickles in anywhere from 2 weeks from the date of the original shop up to 60 days later. I don't have my spreadsheet in front of me, but I know I have been paid at least 2/3 of that money already.

This month is going even better. I have $425 worth of shops scheduled and about another $100 in reimbursements.

Tutoring is still going well, but I am a bit worried about it slowing down a lot this summer. I may need to expand my travels for mystery shopping to make up the difference.

    Do you track your mileage for the mystery shopping? Also, if you have a smartphone, I suggest checking out Field Agent (it is an app.)

    @Racheal777, I wrote a post about it recentlySmile @FrugalTexan75, I do track my mileage and I would love to use Field Agent but last I checked it was strictly for iPhone (I have Android).

    Oh, I didn't realize that! Hopefully FA will come out with an app for Android soon. I used it for the first time today for a paid job. So easy! Smile
