3 Everyday Activities That Double as Good Investments

Want an activity that you can get involved in that could double as a potentially good investment as well? We have three suggestions, but you will find that there are many more once you start to think about it. Wine collecting, collecting art, and even playing video games online could net you money if you know what you are doing.


Below are our three suggestions of activities that you can enjoy while potentially making money as well.

Reading Comics

Most of you will know that comic books, especially first-issues can go for big bucks. While you may think that this is confined to first issues from 40 to 50 years ago of big names such as Spiderman and Superman, you would be surprised to learn that contemporary and less known comic books can also attract some serious interest among collectors. Even early prints of lesser names such as The Walking Dead from under 20-years ago are being sold for upwards of $10k. 

Reading comics is enjoyable for some, but it can also be seen as a solid investment alongside your enjoyment. As long as you take care of your comics once you have read them, store them immaculately and even get them insured, you could find that your hobby starts to pay dividends later down the line.

Online Bingo

Okay, so playing bingo is a bit of a different kind of investment and one that is far from guaranteed, but you can have great fun playing it. You do not have to risk much money at all, and should you be lucky, you could get a return on your investment over time.

If you have played online bingo, you will know that it is a simple game but one that can be very satisfying. All you have to do is hope your numbers are called out before anyone else. You can play for as little as pennies and pass the time while having fun.

Bingo is also one of the most well-known forms of entertainment today, and in particular women are boosting the game’s popularity. The amazing thing about it is that with very little deposit (capital), a player does stand a chance to win a huge amount of money.

There are different ways in which a person could earn money by playing bingo. Among all the methods, the safest way is through bingo cashback sites. 

Bingo cashback works like this. A cashback site permits a player to create an account with a bingo platform. The cashback site will then receive a commission for every new customer they find as part of their deal with the bingo betting site. After receiving the payment, the cashback site will give some of their commission back to the players. In the end, players receive something for nothing; a win for all three parties.

Players looking for new and exciting betting platforms will be happy to know which bingo halls are open for use and offer the best services. One can find which bingo halls are open by finding sites with an online bingo community. These sites also list the most lucrative no-deposit offers and feature honest bingo sites reviews from other players.

Playing Lego

Lego is another childhood activity that many of us carry on into later life. But did you know that Lego sets rise in value very quickly? As soon as Lego stops production on a particular line, those sets will rise 12% in value each year. Collectors are willing to pay more and more for sets that they can no longer get their hands on easily. All you have to do is go to auction sites like eBay and you will see how much some Lego sets are going for.

Even modern sets released just a year before can be sold for almost 50% more than they were originally bought for. If you want to know which Lego sets get the collectors going more than any other, then always pick up Star Wars sets when you find them. We bet many of you are now rushing up to your attics in the hope of unearthing some of that Star Wars Lego you had as a kid!

Think of Any Others?

If you do any of the above, you are already on the way to getting a bit of value out of your daily activities, however, can you think of any more? Perhaps buying domain names that you think will become wanted property in a few years? Maybe collecting sports memorabilia? You could even take up knitting and sell off your wares.

Once you start thinking about it, there are tons of things you could do in your spare time that could earn you some money.
