I started with a criminal record for petty narcotics pos and a 'computer tresspassing' record guaranteeing me unemployment almost everywhere except manual labor. I was also living in a SRO in the worst area you can ever imagine, had no money, huge debt and couldn't even finish university so washed out in the second year due to poverty.


STEP 1 - GET A FUCKING JOB

Any job will do. Some shitty manual labor position is great because then you also get some activity in so you aren't a fat bastard.

Easy jobs to get are landscaping (usually pays under the table cash), construction clean up, warehouse, or whatever you can find on your local Craigslist 'gigs' section. Alternatively there's the dreaded nightshift tech support. Look around for these on CL, or move to somewhere in your country where the jobs are. In Canada this means terribad mining and oilfiend work but it pays like $40/hr and there's nothing else to do up there, perfect for studying.

For me, I got a job at the post office and delivered mail, which meant I got off early and had lot's of time for school. Also consider institutions that will pay you to learn a trade, such as telephone companies and whatever else.

STEP 2 - START SAVING MONEY

Congratulations you poor bastards have earned your own board. Don't fuck it up. Any relevant rules will be created/added to this post when the time comes, but for the meantime try to keep it SFW.

Buying and Selling Silver & Gold Modern Mom 14/03/31(Mon)05:38 No. 1999 ID: 442063 [Reply]

File 139623713012.jpg - (83.28KB , 800x800 , 1-oz-sunshine-silver-bar.jpg )

So I work at a Pawn Shop and therefor am very well aware of the price of gold and silver. Right now Gold is very high but silver is very very low. I have been thinking about getting into buying and selling silver and gold. I was wondering if anyone had any experience with that. I am thinking of rather simply buying silver/gold when its low and selling it when its high. I know some people buy "junk silver" aka 90% silver coins but I am thinking about the pure 1oz bars.

What this person said.
I bought 30 or so rounds of silver leading up to it's 50 something dollar price. It then tumbled and has settled at around the 20ish mark in the States. I lost quite a bit of money, because I had to sell it.
If you ARE going to buy it, find out what the spot price is for that day. Most legit dealers I came across sold at 2 - 4 dollars about spot (ex: $21 spot for the day + dealer commission of 3$ = $23).
Do you see the problem there? The price of silver doesn't change dramatically up 3 dollars in a day. Sometimes not even for months. To make a profit, the future price you sell it for has to account for that original dealer commission.
So, my suggestion for you. If you can get it at spot price or less, then by all means. You'll make a few bucks here in a few months. Maybe enough to get you a decent meal, but that's about it.

Buy silver when it is less than $19/oz. and sell when it is over $22/oz.

Ideally, you want to buy silver when it's really low, I mean less than $12/oz.

If you want to make money fast, look through your old change. If you are in the U.S., you can still find silver coins.

Half dollars, quarter dollars and dimes dated 1964 and older contain 90% silver. Half dollars from 1965-1969 contain 40% silver, Nickels from 1942-1945 contain 35% silver and they will have the mint marks on the back.

You should also start researching coins online, bookstore, public library or a coin store. Never go to a pawn shop to buy or sell, they will always try to rip you off.

Some coins are actually worth more than face value, if you know what to look for. I suggest you look for some coin groups/forums online and join them for the free info. People in these groups like to link/share their finds and will help newcomers with tips, advice and some will be willing to trade (as long as you aren't a rude asshat, who is trying to rip them off to make a quick buck).

ehhhhhh. finding a good deal on silver coins, especially american, is near impossible to find. coin collecting is one of the most popular forms of collecting, so people are gonna know the price for them, and tend to sell them for more than theyre worth

for just getting silver, its pretty good, but youll find silver coins for upwards of $20 and higher, obviously higher than silver price, and finding them is way harder than it sounds, ive only found about 5 or so silver coins, be it quarters or dimes, and the rest ive bought.

you find a good lode where coins have been sitting for years or find a great deal on silver coins, great find, but getting a good amount takes time.

My friend works three hours a week and makes 4000$ selling drugs.
I just can't justify working so hard any more, I get that there are risks but Jesus Christ the money.

Give a numerical value to the disutility you would get from getting busted. Then find out how to calculate risks and decide whether you are okay with the results of the calculation.

I'm putting this in thrifty living because it would save me a lot of the problems caused by under-eating. I simply don't have the appetite others do.

What is the most calorie-dense food out there? Like preferably 500+ in just a tiny teaspoon of solid or liquid? Does any such thing exist?

I guess I would be saving money in the long run because then I don't suffer the consequences of under-eating.

Thank you.

Make the appetite then. Having a prolonged caloric deficit is harmful. If it has a lot of calories in a small teaspoon it probably doesn't have any of the macro nutrients or micro nutrients that you need for your organs to function correctly, at the very least.

Have you considered urban design and planning? There are several graduate courses available in my city for people from any background any it seems like an ease, yet socially prestigious role that pays well and has low levels of competition. Plus, I'd imagine that over a career you'd become an expert at navigating your city and just life in general while having political power without exposure to all the downsides that generally come with being a politician.

Or get a job as a truck driver, be spit upon by society and thought of as a worthless degenerate by everyone on the road. Sure you will get paid hansomly for the job nobody wants, sure without the truckdrivers department store shelves would be barren. go ahead and take a job where you get recognised for the things you do for years to come when you could be out there earning an honest living.

I made a thread here a while ago about writings blog for money. I've since stopped doing it for the most part because I have found a more lucrative field (writing erotica).
Nonetheless, this place has been dead a while.

Does anyone remember those coupons that you could print and get free stuff with?
Also cinder blocks and two by fours are all ya need for furniture!

Also churches will give you stuff

Going to donate jizz for money. Quite good money, actually.

One problem. I have to meet the kid in 18 years if they want to.

Still worth it? What are the general risks of doing this?

Would really appreciate some advice here.

Let's talk about ways to make cash online, it can really help out and once you get efficient with it and have a good group then you're golden.

I won't lie, I'd like to find a person or two from this board to be in a new group. You wouldn't believe how fast and simple things get when you get everyone working together well and can make the money on nearly autopilot, depending on what method you are using. Also tips and resources are always good.

Not anymore, no. Like I'd said in a previous post, the company I dealt with that DID pay me to blog (Blogsvertise for any that don't mind risking things by dealing with them) randomly stopped paying me and it happened to a fellow blogger as well, so it wasn't just me, and since that was my sole source of income from the blog I let it go once that dried out. I still HAVE the blog, but I use it for other things and work on it when I have downtime, so if enough people wanted to then I could start posting again and do the whole thing, but the topic I chose isn't one that gets organic traffic, so there's no point in me spending time working on it for others, I instead have been using it to learn about php and wordpress and html5 so I can add those skills to my freelance profiles.

>>2257
Ehhhhh, if you ask me it's not really worth it to use as a main source of income when you're part of a blog group due to the inscrutable methods that G uses as well as their amorphous definitions of 'fraud'. A group of bloggers that visit each others blogs is certainly not fraud, but sometimes if it gets too big then they bring the hammer down evilly for no given reason, and that hurts. I don't recall if I said it in this thread but the very first time I made money blogging it was through them, 80$ that went down the drain when they gave my account the Rodney King treatment, so I'm pretty wary of them. They are far from the only option though.
