Mixing up the hands is a good thing. Generally limping the top of the range and bottom of the range is a good play. But it depends on how aggressive the BB is. Does that player shove a lot after you limp? Does he check back a lot? Does he fold a lot to shoves? You just have to adjust your range accordingly.

I typically limp from SB, when stacks are deeper than this. With 10BB effective you can jam a lot of hands, especially if you cover the opponent. Most people fold so much, that jamming any random cards can be profitable against them. The issue with limping so short is, that now you invite him to jam, and most of your range has to fold.

This in a nut shell. Open a push fold chart and either Jam or fold here. Limping is def ok deeper but when we are so shallow chips saved are more valuable than the risk of winning potential chips with a marginal hand.
