Some people have gotten super rich off of some pretty ordinary items, according to Listverse, which is definitely a blow to anyone who has ever said, “I wish I had thought of that first”. Jason Sadler earned a cool $45,000 selling the rights to his last name. He legally became known as Jason Headsetsdotcom for a short time, before grabbing another $50K as Jason Sufrapp.  The invention that should have meae me rich wa the stuffingless dog toy because for years I watched my dogs rip the stuffing out of their dog toys within 15 minutes of buying them. Richard James created the Slinky after seeing a spring fall off the shelf in a factory where he worked. In the 70s, Gary Dahl convinced people to buy rocks and keep them as pets. Justin Gignac picked up trash from the streets of New York City and sold the pieces as works of art. Even more incredible, two Canadian entrepreneurs captured air from the Rocky Mountains and made money selling each can for $24. What’s your crazy money-making idea that might one day work?
