The problem with investing in stocks and shares and all the Wall Street jargon is, well, it’s just so boring. That could be because it makes absolutely zero sense to us, or it might be because swapping your hard earned cash for a piece of paper that you have no real interest in just seems a bit odd. Either way, we don’t understand these complex instruments.

But that doesn’t mean you can’t indulge in some surprisingly simple investments that are still super-awesome at making you money. That’s right. Some of the less traditional investments out there – alternative shall we say – are proving to be real money-makers.
So, without further ado, here are some of the fun, weird and truly wonderful investments anyone can make and, more importantly, anyone can make money from. Woohoo!
- Invest In Cardboard
Okay, so cardboard does not sound like the best idea, but what about when it comes to sports cards? Some sports trading cards can be bought for very little and sold for a lot! You may not even have to invest, someone in your household may already have some of these tucked away in a box and doesn't realize they are worth anything. Watch the price guides or see what they are selling for on eBay, Amazon or Etsy to know when best to sell.
- The Art Of Investing
Contemporary art has been one of those newbie investment opportunities that has sprung up from nowhere and then gone a bit flat. Unless you know who to look for, that is. Yes, not everyone is going to land themselves a Marcel Duchamp and see the value go up by 465% in just twelve-months, but you might find something special that will make you a bit of money while making your wall a lot more attractive.
- Better Than Bitcoin. Impossible.
The alternative investment that has been on everyone’s lips (sort of) is that of cryptocurrencies and the world of BitCoin. The problem is, us ordinary folk that have been scared off by financial jargon don’t know where or how to buy this bitcoin stuff, which has apparently taken 50 Cent out of bankruptcy. Thankfully, this link right here makes it super-duper easy. You can even buy it with your credit card. That’s crazy easy, and the total opposite of everything we thought investing was.
- Coins Are Worth Money
The coins in your wallet are probably worth the exact amount you think they are. For example, a fifty cents piece is worth fifty cents. However, get your hands on some rare coins and you might see your investment go up by 12% or so. But here’s the best bit: if you get into coin collecting, you a) are technically a treasure hunter and b) get to go to coin conventions, which are basically big immersive history lessons. That’s pretty cool.
- Stamp Of A Good Investment
There’s not much to say on this one except collecting stamps can be quite profitable, especially if you collect vintage ones. Usually, the return is small, like 5% or so. But sometimes – just sometimes – you can make your money back fourfold.
