Oh ok. Thanks for being upfront with me. I am aware that mystery shopping is never going to be a full time job, or even a part time job. My goal is to, well as far as side hustles go, make as much money as possible as quickly as possible. Still, I'm realistic. But I do want to make the most of my time nonetheless with this side hustle. Thanks 4 suggestion of using public transportation, I didn't think about that. There is another shopping center within walking distance of me, so I have 2 of them near me.
For a short while i was without my own transportation. I was able to continue shopping using mass transit, walking and biking.
Using mass transit in a small or medium sized city works. IF you can cluster shops in an easily accessible area, like your shopping centers. I believe there are many shoppers on this board that use the NYC subways and buses to do shops. My guess is that's not your situation.
Take the bus to a centralized location and then work out from there, walking or biking.
I don't know what your economic situation or health is, but many cities give free bicycles to people in need of transportation that meet certain requirements. This may expand your shopping area further than what you can walk to. Also, many mass transit options allow you to bring a bike with you so you can use it where you get off.
Also, look for food delivery shops if you are within delivery distance of some restaurants. I would guess you are if you are near shopping centers. If you aren't in the delivery area, I and other shoppers here have had food delivered to locations like malls and hotels where we were waiting. Just have the delivery driver call you when they arrive at the mall entrance or hotel to complete the shop.
