      I was once a mystery shopper, but couldn't devote the time I needed to do it well. I am now retired and really appreciate the pre-screening you have provided here! Hope to get back into the fun!

      Mystery shopping has always worked well for me. You don't get rich doing it and you'd have to sign up for a lot of companies to make a part time job out of it but the advantages are you can pick and choose what you want to do.
