Where Are You Shopping Today?

Merchandising out of town and, if time permits, visiting a fave store near there.

Gas station audits yesterday, today and into the future. I signed up for a big route that I would like to get done this month. But, Monday, I have two business inspections for a change of pace.

Post offices, Whole Foods, and a Bob Evans online order carryout (oh my goodness so easy and I get "free" comfort food up to $24, LOL). I got some really nice produce at Whole Foods, they had these huge grapes for .75 cents a pound and 4 avocados for $2.50...I know you SW US people scoff at that price on the avos but here in the NE US that's a great deal.

avocados are $2 in my area at wholefoods. grapes are $3.99/lb
Taking a trip for an MSC to Chicago. Then doing work for another MSC at OHare. Spending the nite using points I've earned for traveling for MSC's and visiting family while there. Flying back home then doing 3 airport shops, including one meal, here before leaving the airport.

All I want for Christmas are notes from my children thanking me and joining me in thanking our God for all the things this family has been blessed with.

It's a new store that just opened up a few weeks ago. It's probably doorbuster specials that will go away in time.
I have a Chase Pay App for coffee his weekend.

Did 2 Goodwill donation-only shops, one grocery shop and one Medicare Advantage shop. AND......at the Medicare Advantage shop, which had room for 40 attendees, I was the ONLY attendee!! I gave a phony first name and last initial, but I reckon the agent won't have any trouble figuring out who the mystery shopper was...LOL!! Oh well, He did great, and I needed the info anyway, so I'm glad for the assignment.
New T-Mobile location about 1.2 miles away. Quick in and out, but the kid did a lousy job so the report took too long. These phone companies invariably hire people who are good with technology but don't have a clue about how to sell.
I did 14 convenience stores, 1 Dunkin Donuts, an O'Charley's lunch shop, and 5 post offices. It sounds like more work than it actually was.
Going to tour a daycare for my two-year old now that I'm going back to work full-time. This would be a surprise baby since I'm 46, but it happens! And I look tired enough to make it believable.
Nothing today. I'm trying to recover from being sick and need to do laundry, etc. I have a cell phone shop tomorrow in the same area where I need to pick up prescription refills and get a few groceries. I've requested a phone shop for Friday. Next week, I have two doctors' appointments on different days, and have a fast food shop that I plan to do before or after each one.

Two valet parking, and a drugstore tobacco compliance with my kiddo. Was gonna do some Mexican food, but just didn't feel like it. Migraine to kill a bull moose right now.
it was a short 3-hour shopping day for me (including drive time). I did 2 post offices, 3 convenience stores, and a Whole Foods. Back home and making a veggie pizza with naan bread with my fresh produce from whole foods.

LOL! We live in such different worlds. It would take three hours to get a total of to 2 post offices, and a Whole Foods.

I did 1 Presto shop. That was enough. It barely fit into the day!

Just did one nearby grocery shop. And I used my "points" on my loyalty card, along with my Wednesday senior citizen 5% discount, to bring the total down from just over $14.00 to $9.58, which is a good thing, since I had to spend at least $9.00. So since the groceries will be reimbursed up to $9.00, I basically paid $0.58 for slightly over $14.00 in groceries...plus, I earned the regular fee the company pays in addition to the reimbursement. The report only takes about 10 minutes. So, slow day, but got groceries I needed!

Easy day for me today...had a nice bouquet of flowers delivered to my home, mailed a stack of envelopes to test delivery time, mailed a package to myself and did an Exxon audit.

Nice. Glad you found those WF shops.
Two very quick garage shops near home. For some reason I have a whole lot of weekend-only shops to finish this month and only a few weekday ones which also seem to be widely scattered. November needs a better plan on my part!

Based in MD, near DC
Shopping from the Carolinas to New York
Have video cam; will travel

Poor customer service? Don't get mad; get video.
Oh yeah, duh. I forgot I'm doing that mass mailing shop, too. Didn't forget to do it, just forgot to mention it. That is all for today. My DS did not like the tobacco compliance shop (and the cashier threatened to cut up his driver license), so we won't be signing up for more of those, after all.
Starbucks! I went over the reimbursrment with my maple pecan soy latte. On top of that, the shop may be rejected because my Samsumg Pay overrode the Chase Pay. Luckily, I'm too filled with maple pecan happiness to care.

$50 bonus on a last minute grocery store shop, $25 bonus on a lat minute PJ's shop (thank goodness the neighbor kid is home to eat it), 2 convenience stores. Should take me about 4-5 hours to do it all including report time.
I did a gas station/convenience store today.

Four TV shops, 2 mystery/revealed gas shops, 1 fast food, 7 little gas station shops with 4 pics.

Pfew. I just submitted my first really big hotel stay report. The one I did before this was mostly checklist audits. This one had 11 pages of single-space reporting. It's hard to tell my non-MS friends what a challenge this is, considering it was a luxury resort and I had expensive meals and a massage comped. I ended up paying $100 oop after the travel allowance, a fraction of what this entire mini-vacation cost. It was a vacation destination I've been wanting to visit, but boy do I did I have to work for it. And now to submit the airport shops I did en route.
Have a phone shop, doing my errands around town....hot again coming home cooking something, waiting for fires to be put out won't drive, weather not good for allergies. Maybe go to pool and chat, use spa, will watch Dodger game later, they won 1st world series last night...L.A. is crazy happy, fun time.... work schedule light until the 1st.,
except Sat., have a BJ's Brewery dinner.....love that place and Porto's Cuban sandwich's and bakery. Deciding if I want to drive the freeway for a nice bank investment job.....

Live consciously....
