An EXCELLENT way to get through the holidays on a shoe-string budget is to mystery shop! Mystery shopping is a completely legitimate side-hustle and there’s no better time to learn than at Christmas! Not only can you make money mystery shopping, but you can get gifts too – and the best part is that purchases are reimbursed in exchange for writing the mystery shop report.
I’ve mystery shopped my way through the past dozen Christmases and wouldn’t have it any other way. My Christmas budget is small but my giving is big!
