Today is a good day, today I get paid. I return my sample deodorant to New Dimensions today and pick up my check. I think I get paid $80 (I actually don't remember the amount) for using 3 different deodorant samples for the last 3 weeks and filling out a questionnaire. So why is today also a bad day?
Today is the last time I return a sample unless I get into a quickie study. As of June 1st there will be no new studies because Unilever is closing the facility. Who is going to pay me to wash my hair or put on deodorant? Who is going to give me coupons for free stuff for smelling things and telling them what I liked? Who is going to give me $40 to circle flyaway and frizz on pictures of hair? (Seriously, that was some of the easiest money ever) I will really miss that place.
Now to find a new revenue stream to replace it. Hmmmmm.
