Who hasn’t needed to make a quick buck or two at some point in their life? As the economy changes, more people are left searching for ways to make extra money to cover some of their bills or store safely away in their squirrel fund.
But not everybody has the time to pick up a second job or work overtime. And not everybody has the means to hop aboard the ever-popular Uber driver train.
Because of this, many people have to think outside of the box in order to boost their cash flow. Some people want to REALLY think out of the box.
Today, we’re talking to those people.
3 Unconventional Ways to Make Extra Money
Take Photos of Your Feet – and Sell Them!
We promised you unconventional, and that’s what we’re going to give you. Many people love feet and they’re willing to pay to see them. So if you are up for something WAY out of the box and reckon that your feet aren’t too much of an eyesore, snap away & post them on sites like the aptly-named Instafeet.
You can take and sell photos of your bare feet, stockinged feet or feet that are neatly tucked into a pair of stilettos. Feet photos typically sell for around $5 to $100—sometimes even more. It’s a weird, but kind of wonderful, way to make some extra cash.
Hedge Your Bets by Gambling Online
This next unconventional way to make money is for the risk-takers and thrill-seekers: online gambling! We’ve included it on our list because one simply can’t ignore the money-making possibilities that go hand-in-hand with online gambling.
Money-making potential aside, it’s fun AND can be done from the comfort of your home. Simply take your pick from the top online casinos in Canada, the US and other places that are known for their superior online gambling platforms have to offer.
Rent Your Tools Out to a Neighbor in Need
Whoever thought that the tool to making quick cash lies in your dust-gathering collection of tools? That’s right! The fact is that people don’t want to spend large amounts of money on tools they’re likely to use once or twice.
This is where peer-to-peer platforms like Sparetoolz, ToolMates and ToolRent come into play. If a peer-to-peer tool hiring platform isn’t available in your area, why not simply come up with your own? You can list the tools you have available for hire on online classified ads or even on your personal social media pages—you never know who may need what you have.
See? Making extra money doesn’t have to be too demanding, difficult or time-consuming. It also doesn’t have to be head-bangingly boring or put you out of pocket. We hope that today’s article has given you a dose of inspiration to come up with your own way to make some extra cash or that you’ll give one of our out of the box money-making ideas a try.
