Reader Tip: Make Extra Cash by Selling Your Hair


Laura emailed in the following tip:

Due to several unexpected expenses this year (that exceeded our dedicated emergency fund) I started searching for unique ways to make a little extra money.

When I found the website, I decided to give it a try. I paid $15 up front to list my ad, and wound up getting a few hundred dollars for my hair in less than 24 hours!

If you have long hair, this could definitely be a money-making option for you too!
