Route shopping is a great way to make extra money as a mystery shopper. Route shopping is exactly what it sounds like. It is a route of shops you put together to do on the same day to maximize your time and financial gain.

As a route shopper, starting your day off right is essential to ensure that your day is productive and efficient. A perfect morning routine can make all the difference in how smoothly things go throughout the day. Here are some tips and tricks to help you establish a perfect morning routine as a route shopper.


1. Plan your route: A perfect morning routine starts the night before. Spend the evening planning your route ahead of time. This can help you save time and ensure that you cover all the locations on your list.


2. Wake up early: Waking up early allows you to have ample time to prepare for the day ahead. Set your alarm and wake up at the same time every day, including weekends, to help establish a routine.


3. Hydrate: Drinking a glass of water as soon as you wake up can help hydrate your body and stimulate your digestive system. This is important as a route shopper, as you will likely be on your feet or driving for long periods.


4. Stretch: Before you start your day, take a few minutes to stretch your muscles. This can help increase your flexibility, reduce muscle tension, and improve blood circulation to your muscles.


5. Gather your necessities: Make sure you have everything you need for your route. Cell phone, notebook, phone charger, a bottle of water, snacks, and any other items you need for your shops to succeed.


6. Dress appropriately: Some shops require you to wear specific types of clothing. For instance, professional attire may be required for auditing. Double-check to make sure you dress according to the guidelines of the shops on your route.


7. Fuel up: Before you get started, it is always a good idea to make sure your vehicle is fueled and ready for the day ahead. Ending up on the side of the road without gas is never how we want our routes to end up.


8. Mental preparation: Take a few minutes to mentally prepare yourself for the day ahead. Visualize yourself completing all your tasks and staying focused and productive throughout the day.


Establishing a perfect morning routine can take some time and experimentation. However, following the above tips can help you establish a routine that works for you and helps you accomplish your goals as a route shopper. Remember to stay disciplined, consistent, and adaptive.
