There are people trying too hard to earn some extra money today. here are some weird and unusual ways to earn a buck or two.
Think outside the box
weird new ways to earn extra money
Money is tight so people need to think of new ways to earn a buck or two.
If you've ever heard the phrase,”think outside the box,” these are way outside the box!
There are some weird ways that people now are making some extra bucks these days. They are not the usual babysitter, cleaning houses, or cutting lawns type of jobs.
I researched many sites and read numerous articles and came up with some weird and unusual ways to earn extra dough. They are not so different that the average person would not come up with these ideas and are off the grid, so to speak.
maiden with Long Hair
Hair today,gone tomorrow
The first idea is selling your hair for big money. Yeah, you can sell your hair but it better be thick and long without processing. I've seen prices for $200. to $2200 and up. It really depends on the texture, length, color, and age. These hair cuttings are used in wigs, hair extensions, weaves and toupees, so human hair is more desirable. Guys can sell their hair also as long as it's nice.
If you want to start a business, then become a human hair broker and be the middleman for buyers and sellers of hair.
Cleaning up in the laundromat
A second weird and unusual way to make some money is to clean up in laundromats in the town. What I mean is, visit laundromats at night, maybe before closing and bring a long thin pole or stick. Something like a wooden yardstick will do and locate money that has fallen under the machines. You know everyone that uses the washer and dryers will drop some coins and not retrieve them so you can literally clean up.
Just drop to your knees and push the stick vertically under the machine and pull it towards you horizontally. You will bring back lots of dust and lint with your booty.
I would be careful to watch out for the manager and not come too often. Some people can make a few hundreds dollars and more,depending on the number you visit each week or so.
Another variation is to offer to clean under the machines and give half to the owners, if you're caught.
The Human Guinea Pig
Becoming a human guinea pig has been around for some time, but it's unusual and makes the third way to earn some extra bucks. The proper title is clinical research participant or paid medical research participants. You can find out where they need volunteers or check the online newspapers and classifieds.
If you don't mind letting Pharmaceutical companies, hospitals, clinics use your body or condition for research purposes then try it out. It is a legitimate way for those with cancer or other debilitating conditions to try a new trial procedure or drug. And they pay quite well for some of these trials.You can receive mileage, hotel stays,and a big check at the end,so read up on each one.

Speaking of trials, the next fourth way to make some dollars is to sign up with an online “mock” jury service. Lawyers need to “pre-try' cases in front of or online with real people and get their honest opinions about their case.
This type of service helps the lawyers gain valuable feedback about their chances of winning their case with public feedback. It also eliminates the hassle of physically driving and scheduling prospective jurors. I like the idea of not having to face the defendant.
Some of the basic requirements are just like real prospective jurors. They must be 18 years of age, be a US citizen, have a clean felony record, and be of sound mind and character. There are many on the web so check out the links .The pay ranges from $5.00 to $100.00.

Put kitty to Work
The fifth weird and unusual way to earn some cash is to put your darling pets to work. Yes, make those spoiled little fur-balls earn their keep!
There are some cats,dogs and gerbils with lots of personality so contact an agency and stat the process.
I know a man that has performing animal act in Las Vegas that I mentioned in my adopt a dog or cat article. He looks for his future performers in local animal shelters and trains them. They are really good and grateful to be alive, I'll bet!

Summary of 5 Weird ways to Make a Buck
There are many odd and weird jobs or services out in the world; just think about what is not being offered or what people need and want.
If you have great hair and haven't cut it since Clinton was in office, then you may have a shot at some big money.
On the other hand, you may like the idea of judging other people without facing them,so an online juror may be in the cards.
I like the idea of putting animals to work. I know some cats with so much personality, that they would be a hit on the sound stage. Remember “Morris the cat?”.He just sat there, looking so cool and aloof. That cat was a shelter animal that got a second chance at life. Both the owner and the cat made it big and so can you if you think about it. Be weird.
