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.

Go Wild

Jesus Christ I'm useless; I should have specified that this board is for poor niggers to share money saving tips/vouchers and whatever.

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

Hello friends. I'm 18 years old and I'm getting kicked out of the house this summer.

I was just wondering if you guys had some tips on how should i stock up for this and what to do to prepare.

I live in Canada, I have about $3k saved up. I won't be finished highschool until middle of next year at best.

I was also thinking about joining the Canadian Forces.

So basically any Canadians here that know how to live cheaply or any sort of tricks I should know for living by myself?

Thanks guys.

Dude. I applied for the CAF in December 2013. Didn't get sworn in until last thursday(June 19th) and won't get paid until the 15th of July. Do not count on the army to save your sorry ass nigga. I may have to go homeless in the interim.

After seeing how cheap the blades for double edge razors are compared to the obscenely over-priced replacement blade cartridges, I'm interested in learning more about double edge razors.

It sounds like aside from being a fraction of the price, the blades even last longer since you can completely remove, clean and dry them, which is impossible with cartridges.

The problem: how difficult is it to shave with these things? Will a new user have a close shave at a fraction of the price, or a face full of blood-stained toilet paper squares? At this point, I'm forced to use the same dull blades that should have been trashed a long time ago, because I can't shell out the money for replacements.

tl;dr shaving for jews

Modern Mom 14/11/18(Tue)02:22 No. 2451 ID: 980650

I use them and I like them, I think disposable razors are a total waste, they're far more expensive in the long run than a good double edge and cartridges. They're not hard to shave with and you can tighten the blade guard to make it less sharp at first when you're getting the hang of it.

I bought an electric shaver from the 1970's for 15 dollars. I have never sharpened the 3 spinning blades, it never pulls on my hair or harms the skin, even on my neck where I have an annoyingly pointy adam's apple.
It shaves just close enough that I can avoid noticeable stubble if I shave once per 24 hours. When I plan on going down on my very sensitive lady, then I do have a razor for such occasions, but it usually leaves me with an ingrown hair or two within a few days.
Man. They used to just make things better, man.

How it works: If you own a lot of earrings, they can easily get lost or disorganized. Pinterest and other websites have a lot of ideas to help, from hanging them on cheese graters or sports rackets to replacing glass in a picture frame with wire mesh.

How it actually worked: I didn't have a cheese grater or tennis racket to spare, nor the time to measure and tack mesh over a picture frame. So I started looking around the house for other candidates. I had a mesh magazine holder that held glossies from 2011. Bingo.

Life changing?: Yes. Not only did I recycle the magazines, but I also upcycled the office supply into something more functional. I put the pairs of earrings I had on one side, and single earrings on the other side, in case I find their matches. I ended up filling the inside with my bangle bracelets so I got double storage with one item.

I'm a student with an income of 540E/month.

I already work and would like no know what is the optimal use of, say, 500E / month with the intention of making more money.

I do not have expenses and politics (relations and influence trafficking) are another topic.

I can sell a lot of stuff I have and probably change my job to a more lucrative one, but since I now have a steady income I bet there's something I can do with it.

I'm not looking for something that requires constant, physical attention like buying/selling objects, but I guess I could try with silver.

SHould I invest? Should I save and study for something that will give me money?

It sounds like you've got the entirely wrong mindset to at this point, but I might be reading too much into the way you phrased your post. Nothing will ever give you money, you have to put forth effort of some kind. Also the amount you get is equal to the amount of time, effort and skill you spend/put into it, but effort is far more important than time in most cases and skill trumps the other two by a fair sight. That applies to something as simple as selling an item as well.

Warning this is illegal but you can easily pull this off if you keep your mouth shut.

Go to a dollar store, they usually have a prepaid card you can put up to like 500 and the card is like a dollar. You buy one and put about 10 or 15. you take the card to a gas station and make sure its busy. Use the card as credit. Fill up your tank pass the amount you put in there. Leave the gas station and cut the card.

Enjoy

Couldn't you just use the defense that you didn't know there wasn't enough money in the card because you got it as a fucken gift?

Modern Mom 14/11/12(Wed)01:29 No. 2442 ID: 1ea94c

As I recall these re loadable debit cards do require name address and social security numbers for activation. At least that was my case when I needed one.

Hey I'm new to 7chan (4chan betafag) but >>>/jew/ particularly interested me. So I'll be nice and helpful on my first post.

While yes, to a certain degree you are correct, you can also use Greenback Moneypak cards. If you get the one in pic related you can load up to $500 on it without so much as a signature.

However, you do need the money in cash to load it, and a service charge of $4.95 is in order. I just got one today for $200, so it cost me $204.95. Tax was included in the $4.95, I believe.

Anyway, the cashier scans the card to activate it and deposits the cash onto it as an electronic amount and you're good to go. So you could stock pile them from one store and hit the gas station, "not knowing" the difference.

You can pick these up at CVS, Walmart, Walgreens, and other such stores.

>Happy thrifting

If I were to start stealing things from stores to save money, how would I go about it? Related question: If I were to begin selling things I stole from stores, how would I go about it?

I can confirm that this strategy works really well. Pocketing some small expensive stuff like vanilla extract along with your regular shopping is easy as fuck, anyybody can pull it off.

BOGOF offers:
Buy 5 of them (you can mix it in with a whole trolley of stuff if you've got a legit shop to do)! After you've paid for them offload one to your mate, go the customer service counter and tell them they charged you for one too many. Get it refunded.

BUY A PREPAID PHONE. DO NOT HAVE ANY INFORMATION ON IT RELATING TO YOUR ACTUAL IDENTITY.

POST SINGULAR ADS TO CLASSIFIED AD WEBSITES LIKE CL.

ONLY MEET PEOPLE AT PUBLIC AREAS

NEVER PARK IN THE PARKING LOT OF THE STORE YOU STEAL FROM

EASIEST METHOD IS CONCEALMENT. DONT CONCERN YOURSELF WITH ALARMS, DONT STOP FOR BEEPERS, UNKESS YOU ARE UNDER ARREST YOU ARE FREE AND INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY




Bicycle Frames Modern Mom 14/11/12(Wed)16:00 No. 2443 ID: fbfe7f [Reply]

File 141580445629.jpg - (234.01KB , 470x700 , DSCF4508.jpg )

I'm looking to build myself a "cheap" bike that will replace my truck for all but long drives and when something big needs to be moved. I'm self building because quality bicycles are expensive, most new bicycles don't meet my requirements, and there are a ton of old frames that do satisfy most if not all of my requirements.

I'm about 5' 8.5" with a 30-31"-ish inseam. According to most online frame size calculators for a road bike I should be looking in the 52-54cm range and for a MTB I should be in the 17-18" range.
If I want to purchase a vintage mountain bike frame that does NOT have the downward/upward (depending on POV) sloping top tube which size should I use as a guide?
