Zipments- Works For Me Wednesday


I don’t often do posts geared towards a local audience because my audience is national. Actually worldwide (which makes me sound much more important than I am so I am going to throw it out there). But when I found out about this new local company I just HAVE to share the concept because it is a BRILLIANT way to make a little cash as a stay at home mom.


When I was in Chicago there were a ton of hazards to driving. But one of the biggest ones in the cities was the bike messenger weaving in and out of traffic like a maniac. Well now you have a chance to be a maniac. Ok not really, but Zipments is a new courier service in Grand Rapids and YOU can be a courier.

But it isn’t like you have to become a courier as your job. You can become a courier when you see something that needs to be “zipped” somewhere near where you are going. The beauty of this system is that because there is a lower overhead you can save money if you are shipping something but make some money going somewhere you are going anyway.

As someone who personally spends half of her waking hours driving around town, this seems like a great deal for me. And maybe if I do some jobs I can earn enough money to have some other poor soul zip something across town for me in the future.

Isn’t this a fantastic idea? I can’t wait to check out some of the postings. You should also follow them on Facebook and Twitter where you will also find out about the latest news and offers.

This post was sponsored by Zipments. As always all opinions are my own. What to find out more about what’s going on locally?
