AMERICANS find ways to save some money or make extra money as inflation hits all aspects of daily life.
A TikTok influencer shared his side hustle, which allows him to fill his own hours while raking in hundreds of dollars a week.
A side job is a great way to make money, but it’s even more enticing if it doesn’t take up too much of the little time you have left after you’ve finished your main job.
Travis Bolton, who is on TikTok with idaddytrav, shared a video showing off his side hustle.
He guided his nearly 15,000 followers through one of his days delivering luggage.
Not just any baggage, but the lost baggage separated from travelers.
Travis works full-time as a teacher.
When he’s not working on weekends or in the summer, he spends a few hours reuniting lost luggage with its owners.
For a week, he earned $800 by working four hours.
He explains that some muscle is required as there are pieces of luggage that can be quite heavy.
How is lost baggage reunited?
If you’ve flown before, you know there’s a risk your luggage won’t make it to your destination.
In this case, the airlines will do their best to get you your luggage on time.
Travis led his followers to a warehouse where he explained how he goes there to pick up his assigned bags.
On this run, Travis loaded 19 bags into his SUV.
Travis plotted his route.
That day he made 10 deliveries.
He said he uses the InRoute app to deliver everything efficiently.
He selects addresses that are close to him – on this day it was within 52 miles.
He loads his car in the order of his deliveries.
He starts at the furthest point and makes his way home.
At some stops he has to check in more than one piece of luggage.
He said not everyone tips, but it’s appreciated.
It is his greatest satisfaction when the owner is happy about his lost luggage.
How did he find this part-time job?
Many people commented on his side job and asked him how he found this job.
He wrote that he’s been doing this since 2017 when he googled “driving/delivery jobs” and a listing for the job came up.
He doesn’t work for the airline, but for the company he’s signed to, called Xpress Bags.
If you’re interested in a similar job, Travis told Google what’s available in your area.
