Stupid Money Making Ideas That Actually Worked! Now This Is Truly Bizarre...

9 replies
I thought it would be fun to list stupid money making ideas that actually worked.

Today, I was down in Soho in New York City and saw a street vendor selling "seat savers". Basically, they were melted ice cream cones, spilled soda cans, vomit, and other nasty things FROM THE JOKE STORE.

Instead of being funny, these items were turned into useful props. What better way to save your seat at the park while you get up to throw something away, or on the subway when it gets crowded and you need some extra space.

This guy was selling these all day long for about $5 to $10 each. Probably made a few hundred bucks and had fun too.

Profitable ideas are everywhere. Just look. What's the stupidest thing you've seen that worked?!

    Somewhere, at some point in time, someone invented and marketed bobbleheads.

    Now you see one in every other cubicle and automobile.

    I once found myself without money when backpacking through Europe so used to sell fingerbread cakes to tourists...for some reason people like to have tweety birds sitting on their finger.

      I would be too afraid for the bird idea. Remember that Alfred Hitchcock movie "The Birds"? Methinks my eyes might be plucked out in a fit of cake eating. Hark the Raven, nevermore.
