Unusual Ways To Make Money Quickly

Unusual Ways To Make Money Quickly

We have brought together a list of unusual ways to make money quickly. Regardless why you may be short on cash, these ways will increase your earnings quickly to help you catch up.


Your body, No we don’t mean prostitution!

You can donate plasma, usually plasma center have deals going for first-time donors and you can cash in anywhere from $35 to $65 depending on your location. Also, you can earn money if you refer and bring along your friends.

There are also sites dedicated to selling your hair. You can make some bank if you have virgin undyed hair in longer lengths. I have seen the prices go anywhere from $400 to well into the thousands! Check out buy and sell hair and see for yourself.

You can also try what one woman did and offered up her excessive breast milk. While, I am not sure if a mom would want to buy breast milk, being untested and from a total stranger, but, hey there was once a thing as wet nurses and in some cultures, there are still wet nurses, so to each their own.

Part Time Cash Jobs

There are various part time cash jobs you can rush out and do. Lawn care, shoveling snow, babysitting, pet walker, pet sitter, garbage removal. You name it, there are plenty of jobs you can advertise for or even go door to door, well maybe not door to door if you are an adult you might end up with the police questioning as people tend to get creeped out by strangers in their neighborhoods.

Strip the house

Time to search the couch cushions, My daughter once wanted to go to the movies. I told her to earn the cash by chores, she cleaned the couch and believe or not, she found enough to buy that movie ticket!

Sell, it Baby, Sell it.

List all your unwanted stuff for sale on social media groups, craigslist or any other local advertising places you can. I have a policy in my house, if we haven’t touched it in 6 months it has to go! You can even put together a yard sale if the weather is bad then do a garage sale.

Scrap Metal

Offer to pick up people’s unwanted metal, then head on over to the scrap yard. You would be shocked how much scrap metal you have sitting around your own home. We once got $35 for an old stove that didn’t work. I wanted it gone, the $35 was a bonus!

Got a Hobby?

Turn it into cash, can you crochet, knit, maybe make some custom jewelry, who knows what your talents are, but you can easily turn them into some quick cash.

Digital Means

We wrote a post on some quick way to make some extra cash, you can read it here.

Medical Research

There are many universities that are willing to pay you to grow a tail! Just kidding, but seriously they do medical research on just about anything. You can find many of these by just a simple search engine search. While this might not be extremely quick, some of these pay out very well. Search for paid clinical trials or medical research paid.

Have Extra Space?

Rent a room in your house, make sure you do background checks first! You can put all the terms in advance, for example, common areas, what you’re willing to share, and how much.

Cash out

If you have life insurance you have been paying on for a long time, you can always cash it out if you’re desperate.  Ask yourself first, if you cash this out and something happens to you tomorrow will your family suffer without that extra money, prior to cash out. If you’re a selfish bastard, then, by all means, go blow it! Lol

Need Temporary Money Quick?

Try a pawn shop, if you have something worth value that you know you either no longer want or need or something you know you can get out of pawn on your next paycheck.

Males.. Only..

You can always sell your swimmers…  Donation rates vary by location and certain terms. You will have to call around and get the best rate for your sperm. You could actually donate every five days and bank the money and see what you have by retirement!

Women.. Only..

It would take about 9 months to cash out on this deal, but, you could always become a surrogate mother. There are many places that pay anywhere between 10 to 20 grand to borrow your womb for the next 9 months.

Roadside Sales

Can you get your hands on a ton of discount flowers, even water has been known to sell well off the side of the roadside, if you live in a high traffic area you are sitting on a gold mind.

Last but not least… Let your sign fly!

That’s right, come up with a cute little saying and go find yourself a nice curb and panhandle. The wittier the sign the higher the payout. I have seen people post that have earned a couple hundred dollars flying signs. Just make sure to check your local laws, bail may be more expensive than the debt your trying to pay off.

A Smile Around Depression

A Smile Around Depression

Today is a bittersweet day of depression hidden behind a smile! It’s my 1 year anniversary to a wonderful, loving, giving man. How can today of all days create the depression? It’s easy, One year ago today I married the man of my dreams earlier than we had planned (summer wedding planned) because my father jokingly said he wanted to be there to walk me down the isle. You see my dad was diagnosed with lung cancer. He was on borrowed time, timeI wouldn’t come to terms with and figured he tons of time, because my dad was a bull headed son of a bitch, and I always told him he couldn’t die because the devil hadn’t lifted his restraining order.

Somehow I convinced myself he had time, he would be cured, it couldn’t be as bad as they said. I lost my dad that February. Let’s rewind, though, the wedding day, he was late because he couldn’t find the place, he walked me down the isle, we had our father-daughter dance. He got the groom drunk in the kitchen, and I spent my wedding dinner with my new son in law and best friend (Both who I adore). All these things created happy memories! You might think spending my wedding dinner without my husband would anger me, but it was the complete opposite. This wedding was for my dad, 3 days before his 70th birthday.

I cried through my father-daughter dance, most the pictures people took had me bawling like a baby. I still haven’t changed my facebook picture from him and I. It was always my husband and I, to this day I still can’t change it. At the time I was thinking, how will you feel when you think back on your wedding, all I thought of when we put together a wedding in 3 weeks time and under a $500 budget that I would look back on happy memories and hurt so much inside.

So while I am planning the perfect dinner for my husband, his favorite items. I am sitting here lost in my emotions and memories. The holidays are coming, the first one without him, his first birthday without him is also coming…  How can happy times hurt so much? Did I mention, I truly have a wonderful husband who has spent his days dedicated to making me happy?

Chefs Limited Whistling Tea Kettle Review

Chefs Limited Whistling Tea Kettle Review

I loved the design of this whistling tea kettle, it matches my kitchen as I have all black appliances and I like to leave my tea kettle at all times sitting on the back burner. I did, however, run into a few problems when using this tea kettle for the first time. I was unable to get the tea kettle to whistle, I let it boil long over the time I would have my old tea kettle boiling. Also when removing the cap, it was “stuck” and needed to be yanked off, this caused the water to slosh out a bit, not good when you’re dealing with boiling water. Luckily none got on me and only on the stove.

Not to be one to give up, I tried to use the tea kettle the next morning. The cap came off easily and I finally got it whistling. I am not sure if it just needed a first time work through to get it all working properly or not. But, since the first time mishap it has worked perfectly each and every time.

One more thing I would like to note is that even though the handle is silicone covered, it still is hot to touch. A bit too hot for my liking, I ended up using a pot holder on the handle because the heat was too much for me.

Even with the small details, I did not like, I would purchase this again because I am used to using a pot holder on my tea kettle and it finally was able to whistle and I absolutely love the design of this whistling tea kettle.

Raising Faith

Raising Faith

So I am one of those grandmothers with custody of their grandchildren. Save your judgemental comments, no one cares here! This little girl lights up every aspect of my life, so I raise her right along with her just became a teenage aunt (No she is not the mother), the parent’s are very much adult age.

Life is not easy when you are raising your own children, but when you throw a grandchild (Raising Faith) into the mix it gets even harder, but truth is we handle it well.

This little girl is full of life and wonderment. We currently enrolled her into dance, she is clueless, but she gets up on stage and taps those little tap shoes doesn’t matter if she is doing what the other kids are doing that’s my grandbaby out there having fun.

It never fails, there is always one kid in the bunch dancing to their own beat, yep, this year I am the one owning that little off dance, the one I hear the mumbles from the “parents” saying look how cute she is, she has no clue what she is doing. Granted she is one of the youngest at 3, but in her own time, she will be dancing away and actually doing the routine the way it meant to be.

But for the time being, she is stealing the show, because all eyes are on the child who is twirling in the background and not doing what the other children are. That’s my grandbaby stealing the show.

Tonight is the big show, and it means a lot to us to know that we will present her with her first little bouquet of flowers, Hopefully, she doesn’t try and eat the flowers. Maybe I better start googling safe to eat flowers.

Screw it, maybe I should just get her one of those edible arrangements. “Here sweetie, congrats, now eat your pineapple rose”

You never know what to expect life to hand you, but right now as chaotic as life is, I know we wouldn’t change it..Raising Faith

Work At Home Digital Earning Sites

Work At Home Digital Earnings

These types of work at home jobs take a bit more effort, but they are perfect for the stay at home mom who just wishes to have a bit extra spending money. I personally do these throughout the year and it easily pays for Christmas gifts for the entire family, including extended family. I will break down each one and the way I use them to maximize the most money. This post does include referral links.

Swagbucks – I let the Swagbucks tv run a lot, my 3-year-old granddaughter for some reason loves watching this. So if you have a toddler at home, let them have at it. Also, I use the search function too, this helps generate even more Swagbucks. You can exchange you Swagbucks for gift cards or PayPal. Also, Swagbucks give you Swagbucks for shopping through them. I have cashed out here for a few $100.

CashCrate – This is a survey site, plus a lot more. You get $1.00 just for signing up, and you earn more just from completing your profile.  They have a way for you to make money using them to shop through them too.  I always go with the website that offers the most cash back when shopping. Cashout is via PayPal or you can request a check. Cashed out here for around $40.

FusionCash – I have personally cashed out from this company over $50 dollars, that’s at least one Christmas present or a few cheaper ones.  This is a really easy site to earn some extra cash on. They even offer “Paid to Call”, make quick money making a few phone calls. I let the radio play and earn that way. You just have to remember every 30 minutes to enter the captcha.

Inbox Dollars – Another quick way to make some extra spending money. Let the inbox TV run and earn money today! They also have paid to click emails that are sent to you, so make sure you set up another email to use these sites with, so you can go to one place for all your work at home digital earnings. There is even a search function where you can make .15 cents a day, this alone would make you 54.60 a year. Just from using their search engine.

InstaGC – This is truly one of my favorite sites, I have cashed out many times on this site for instant Amazon gift cards. They offer tons of ways to cash out, and tons of ways to earn money. You can cash out on Amazon for as little as $1.00. You can also choose cash options to cash out.

What is InstaGC?

InstagGC is a rewards website, that offers you “coins” for completing tasks. These coins can then be exchanged for gift cards or cash.

Each time you complete a task you are rewarded with these coins.


Completing tasks:

There are various types of tasks you can do on InstaGC. I will try to break each one down to make them simple to understand.

Watching videos– this is as simple as watching videos until your account is credited.

Completing Surveys – You must follow the directions. I will include some screenshots and explain this better further down the line.

Making calls – This is as simple as making a phone call to confirm the information they want, filling out a form and getting credit.

Shopping – You earn cash back when you shop through InstaGC.

Free Trials – There can be some various generous payouts on Free Trial, you may or may not have to pay to ship, but usually you get all your money back and then some when you consider the payout on InstaGC. Just make sure you cancel before you are charged if it’s an item you are not interested in after receiving your free trial.

Search the Web – Complete simple searches through their search engine and earn coins.

Apps – Download apps onto your phone, play them for a minimum of 3 minutes to receive credit.

How do I make Quick Money:

Crowdflower – Make sure you sign up for this section, you can find it under TASKS. These are simple, and an easy easy way to make coins!!! –  These pay out high, and are often not trial offers, so I use this section a lot! They have 5-minute surveys that pay out well for 5 minutes.

Downloading Apps – I use my laptop for the surveys, but I also sign in on my phone and download a ton of apps. It’s up to you if you want to keep these apps are not after you earn credit.


Do offers, and clean your cookies/Cache a lot! Unsure how to do this, just go to google and use search terms like “How to clean cookies  iphone” “How to clean cookies android” “How to clean cookies (Whatever browser you are using)”

Surveys:  You are not always going to get approved for them, it’s hit and miss, but the hiring paying ones are worth sticking too and keep trying.

Ticker:  USE THIS! You see what other people are getting approved so click on them! This only works if you are using desktop view on a phone or tablet, or using a computer.
