I is for Innovative Ideas to Make a Living

A friend* and I are always discussing ways to make enough money so that we can give up work.   From writing educational books or inventing apps to running a coffee shop or baking cupcakes, we’ve been through hundreds of ideas.  But her latest idea sounds like the easiest one.

Yep, these are definitely my legs (if they were wearing woolly tights and a pair of slippers. And the carpet needed hoovering…)

Apparently,men people will pay for used/worn/preloved tights.  All you need to do is bulk-buy packs of tights for 50p each, wear them for ten minutes, then list them on eBay with a slightly saucy photo for £5 each and wait for the bids to come rolling in.

The only down side is that it’s a bit distasteful and not the sort of thing to discuss at PTA socials.

‘So, what you do you for a living, Barb?’

‘I sell my used tights on eBay.’

‘Sorry, I think I spotted someone I know across the room.’

Hmmm, back to the drawing board.   But if you really do have have any legitimate, less seedy, money-making ideas, please feel free to share 🙂

*She may have to be downgraded from ‘friend’ to ‘acquaintance’ after revealing that she only likes hanging out with me because I make her feel thin…

  1. A brilliant business opportunity. It should work for lingerie too … and to think I’ve been throwing them away! I could have been rich! Rich, I tell you!!

    …. I think I started hyperventilating …

    1. Hahaha, calm down!!! Funnily enough, I didn’t get the same hit response when I searched for used lingerie (obviously I put in ‘used knickers’, I’m not as classy as you!)) – wonder if eBay has banned it so selling worn tights are a way round??
