Turns out I’ve made an extra $130 this week! Sweet.
Monday saw me giving up my evening for a two hour focus group on frozen foods. I walked out $70 later and with a somewhat fuller tummy. (I guess spending a couple grand on face to face research is a drop in the bucket, although the fee seemed pretty generous to me.) I’m always a bit nervous going into those kinds of things; I always worry I won’t have anything to contribute to the discussion, but this was a small group and they were all really friendly. Seriously, you’d think I was still 11 instead of 21 sometimes.
Also, it turns out I was $60 in credit on my old Telecom account. I only found this out when the new tenant at our old house called to tell me that she couldn’t get a phone line set up, because apparently I hadn’t properly disconnected our line when we left. But I had. And somehow, that account was in credit, which they transferred to our current account and halved this month’s bill 🙂
