Savvy Aussie Makes An Extra $20,000 A Year With The ‘Easiest’ Sidehustle Idea Yet – And Anyone Can Do It
- Man claims to earn $20,000 extra a year from side business
- He buys second-hand bouncy castles for children to rent out on weekends
A smart Aussie says he makes an extra $20,000 a year doing a simple side hustle that anyone can do.
The “money man” revealed that he buys cheap second-hand backyard bouncy castles from Facebook Marketplace to rent out every week.
On average, three $50 bouncy castles are rented three times a week, bringing the total to $450 a week or $18,000 a year for 40 weeks if maintained.
“I wasn’t going to share this one but I will if it can help someone’s worthless life, not being worthless [sic],” he said in a TikTok video and called the idea the “easiest sideshow” ever.
The man who calls himself the “Flip King” also buys used stuff online to resell for a higher price – like iPhones.
While the idea is indeed simple, it takes some time and insurance to ensure that the bouncy castles are safe to use. A vehicle would also be required to transport the bouncy castles to and from venues.

In the video, the man shows a picture with a huge sum of money in his hand and then shares how he advertises the bouncy castles.
Go to Facebook Marketplace. Buy as many bouncy castles for small children as possible – make sure they come with blowers. Buy sturdy tarpaulins to put them on and protect the bottom,’ he continued.
“Then mark your castles on the local community’s Facebook pages. I have three that I rent three times a week for 40 weeks, easy $20,000.”
The three bouncy castles all range in price from $45 to $60 for a day rental.
According to the description, a $100 refundable security deposit is required and the bouncy castles can be delivered and set up for an additional fee.
In the video’s comments, the man says he pays $55 a month for insurance.
“These are not classed as commercial castles under amusement rides, insurance is much less,” he wrote.
