Spring is in full gear, and in many areas of the country, the weather may seem more summer-like than spring-like now. You may be making plans for a summer vacation, trying to figure out what to do with your kids or grandkids this summer and more. However, there are also many things that you may need to buy to get ready for summer, and you can put your mystery shopping assignments to full use by strategizing carefully as you select your upcoming assignments.
A Summer Wardrobe
Many stores have had their spring and summer lines out for weeks, if not months in some areas of the country. Now that the summer months are almost here, you can start heading out to stores and stocking up on sandals, swimsuits, shorts, summer dresses and more. Think beyond yourself and also think about updating your spouse’s and kids’ or grandkids’ wardrobes too. As you search for mystery shopping assignments on the job boards, you will want to look for clothing stores that you and those in your family love to shop at. Use your mystery shopping expense reimbursement to get cash back on those new purchases that you make.
New Summer Décor
The summer months are also ideal for updating your home’s décor. On the inside of your home, you may consider switching out your rugs and curtains to brighten up the space, and you can update accessories like candlesticks, tablecloths and even wall hangings. Outside, you can dress up your yard with new cushions on the patio furniture, new yard décor and even fresh summer flowers in the flower beds. Look for mystery shopping assignments at home improvement stores, landscaping and nursery stores and other related venues to put your expense reimbursements to good use.
You may have holed up all winter long in your home waiting for the frozen chill to thaw out, and now that summer is almost here, you may be ready to get out and enjoy some time with your family. This, however, can cost some money. You can look for assignments that offer some type of fun element that your family can enjoy. For example, an assignment at a mini golf center or amusement park can be fun. Likewise, assignments that allow you to purchase outdoor gear like camping supplies, pool and beach toys or even sunscreen can be put to great use this summer as well.
If you are getting ready for summer in your home, you no doubt understand fully just how expensive the summer months can be. Thanks to your expense reimbursements from your mystery shopping assignments, you have a great way to get reimbursed on some of those purchases you want to make. Consider searching the job boards with summer fun in mind, and you will no doubt find some truly amazing assignments that you can put to great use. There is no better time than right now to get started preparing yourself, your home and your whole family for summer fun!
