Mystery shopping

After reading Crystal’s blog at Money Saving Mom, I felt inspired to rack my brain and think of another way that I’ve made money from home, and then it hit me- I’ve never mentioned mystery shopping!

Now, in my experience it’s difficult to actually make cash money from mystery shopping. Perhaps in the US there are some companies that pay more money than what is available in Canada. The one that I signed up for did not pay a lot of actual cash (although sometimes the opportunity simply required time and a small cash reward was given, perhaps $10-20).

But usually I was rewarded through free services or items. This isn’t quite making money, but if you can get things that your family needs and might have otherwise had to pay for, then it can almost as good.

For instance, through my mystery shopping we got free dinner for date nights, a free oil change, and free professional carpet cleaning in our home! Those are fairly practical things that were really helpful and enjoyable for us!

There are many websites to be found if you google “mystery shopping” or “secret shopping”. For anyone in Canada, the one that I used is called Sensus.

Just a short tip this morning, as I’m off to try to grocery shop on a much decreased budget (for the Savvy Spending Challenge). Make sure you check out Making Do Mondays and add your own link!

A Parent's Guide to Natural Remedies eCourse

I don't know if you've seen it or not, but I've shared a couple times this week about a collection of resources I'm honored to be a part of with some really brilliant authors and bloggers.

Before it's gone, I wanted to make sure that you knew that "A Parent's Guide to Natural Remedies" eCourse is included in the collection. If you're anything like me, you want to learn more about using natural methods for taking care of your family, but sometimes it's just hard to know where to start. Roxanne and Wendi have done a masterful job of boiling down the complexities of wholistic family care - including homeopathy, cell salts, essential oils, probiotics, and a bunch more - and making it really accessible for regular moms.

The crazy thing is...although they usually sell the eCourse at $95 (and it's a steal at that!), they've agree to include it in the special collection of resources I've helped put together, for only $29.97.

But, if you think getting a crash course in natural remedies at two thirds off the regular price is awesome, I think you'll be surprised to learn that it comes with 98 other resources handpicked for moms like you and me.

The Ultimate Homemaking Bundleis a complete library of carefully selected eBooks, eCourses, audios, online conferences, and printable packs from many of the top homemaking bloggers and writers on the web, to help you be the best mom and homemaker you can possibly be.

Now, you're obviously not going to read every eBook, and every eCourse (that would be a bit much!), but I think you'll find a number of resources in the collection to inspire, teach, equip, and encourage you in your role as a homemaker for years to come.

Valued at over $1290 but at a price tag of just $29.97, this is one tool your home can't do without!

Plus, everyone who buys a bundle through Keeper of the Home gets a bonus 2 oz. liquid herbal remedy AND our very own 4 ebooks, all designed to help you with more affordable, healthy homemaking. Learn more HERE.

But time is running out! The Ultimate Homemaking Bundle will only be available from 8:00 a.m. EST on Monday, April 20 until 11:59 p.m. EST on Monday, April 27. motionmailapp.com

  1. One word of warning to those looking into Mystery Shopping – there are several scam sites and adds for these jobs as well, so check into the one you’re interested in working for . It took the Better Business Bureau for me to get the money back I’d invested into one fraud system before realizing it. The “company” refused to refund, so I wrote a letter of complaint against them to the BBB and was refunded the money put in but out of the time wasted by a fraud.
