Here Are Some Of The Wildest Side Hustles You Told Us You Did For Some Extra Cash

So many people thrive with having their own side hustles. It is a part of the economy that consists of more and more young people looking to make some extra cash while also juggling a fulltime job. For some, the side hustle is a passion project that you want to get off the ground to quit your job. For others, it is a way to bridge the gap between their income and what they need with healthcare and other responsibilities.

Side hustles are a part of life for so many so we wanted to know what you all did for some side cash.

We asked you to tell us on social media what some of the wildest side hustles you have done and you did not hold back. Tbh, some of these even gave us ideas on ways to make some extra cash on the side during and after this pandemic. Here are some of the best side hustles you shared.

Being a contestant on “12 Córazones.”

Instagram user @an_igeee said she was on the show about 8 years ago and we have a lot of questions. Like, can you send us a clip so we can see you in all your glory? Did you find love? How did you end up being cast in the show?

Some of y’all started really young with your side hustles and good for you.

Honestly, we all collected Pokémon cards at one time or another. It was the few smart kids that knew how to collect so many that they could duplicate their best cards and sell them like @br1ana21. If you are really smart, you can turn it into an adult side hustle now that they might have a little more value.

You can always make some extra cash if you have a camera.

@maxwellhallel told us that he made some extra cash helping a catalog. This side hustler was taking photos of paper towels and toilet paper. The photographer probably never imagined how valuable and important those paper products would be in the future.

Some side hustles are not for the faint of heart.

Death is such a part of life that there is an industry built up to handle everything death. That is why @_whiskeynpeonies_ managed to build up their own side hustle of transporting bodies for funeral homes. If you like driving and don’t mind being around death, this might be a good choice for you.

Sometimes your side hustle is just an extension of your full-time job.

When push comes to shove, there are ways to turn your main grind into a side hustle as well. Since the world became infected with COVID-19, a lot of people have lost their jobs and @anacepedab is no different. She is a school teacher in the morning, a university student in the afternoon and, because of her parents’ sudden unemployment, she has picked up some extra work as a tutor.

If you have the stomach for it, you can always handle the jobs no one wants.

@karimoli did what parents don’t want to do: remove piojitos. Lice are just a part of growing up. Children do not understand social distancing or personal space so when one kid gets lice, all of them do. It seems like a pretty solid side hustle if you live near an elementary school or daycare. Who else would hire someone to remove their child’s lice?
