If your main job is not enough to cover the bills, despite all your extra hours or side gigs, maybe it’s time to try something else and do things a little differently. Something that doesn’t involve a 9 to 5 schedule or spending long hours in front of the computer. Something like these 7 weird and unusual ways to make more money.
Sell your hair
Maybe you’ve heard of it, maybe you haven’t, but people (and by people we mostly mean women) have been selling their hair for decades. You would think that with today’s technological advancements and scientific progress, we wouldn’t need someone else’s hair. But we still do.
For instance, men who are afraid of hair transplants need wigs, which are usually made of natural hair. The better the quality of the hair, the more you can get for it. Depending on its length, thickness and color, you can make several hundred dollars. And with the hair extension sales going up, your locks could be worth a lot of money.
Did you know you can make money by selling plasma? If not, let us tell you all about it. First of all, plasma is a light yellow liquid, filtered from human blood which is used as a treatment against serious diseases such as blood clotting disorders or autoimmune diseases.
How much you receive for your plasma can vary from one place to another, but it is usually between $20 to $50 per donation. It’s safe to donate it once a month according to the American Red Cross, and the procedure lasts around two hours. If you are interested, look for plasma donation centers in your area.
