To Quit or Not to Quit?

Yep, that is the question!

One of the firs things I 'discovered' when I started looking for ways to make some extra money while I stay home with the little was home scanning. For those not familiar with it, it's when you scan the groceries or any products you buy in stores using one of those barcode scanners similar to what they use in stores. The information gathered by the scanner is then sent to the company I scan for through the phone where the transmitter is connected. The main aim of this is to help research companies like the one I'm scanning for in determining prices in different stores from different places. Anyway, I've been contemplating in quitting this 'sideline' for a couple of reasons. The original company I did this for was bought out by a bigger company a few years ago so a lot has changed already and I'm not particularly happy with the changes. The other reason is my busy schedule. My main aim when I joined was the extra income. It does not pay a lot but every little bit helped during the time I started doing it. Actually, it's very time consuming but I enjoyed doing it. But now that I have regular paying gigs, I can't find the time to do it regularly anymore. I also don't enjoy it as much as I did when I first started. I guess I'm just waiting for that perfect time to throw in the towel and just concentrate on my regular gigs.
