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.

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.


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.

Writing the only resources I know about is to read all of George Orwell's advice https://www.mtholyoke.edu/acad/intrel/orwell46.htm note the 6 "rules for writers" at the end of that essay. Live by those and you should be fine.

Christopher Hitchens also has a lot of workshops he filmed talking about writing for a living. His advice is "if you feel you NEED to write, instead of want to write, then you'll do OK".

The one thing I haven't seen discussed is Transportation!

For those of us who have a job or are looking, transportation is very important!

It is also important that it is cheap and reliable, not often two things that go well together!

Bikes are OK but if you live in an area where it's a minimum if 10 miles to any place that has work it isn't much help!

Plus most cheap cars don't get great gas mileage (Mine costs almost 120-200 a month in gas) AND you car is often a dead giveaway that you are a poor person!

What suggestions do allz you poor people have regarding cheap and reliable transportation?

I drive a 1994 Ford Escort wagon that just hit 215,000 miles yesterday. It had 186,000 on it when I bought it two years ago for a song and dance. Has coolant issues, electrical problems, shifts rough as fuck, but it gets me where I need to go, plus it sounds great since I put a bunch of Kenwood audio in it last year.

Any good places to find cheap, older reliable cars? I need one. I thought about going to a nursing home and talking to all the old people so they'd give me stuff but that made me feel evil and manipulative.

the el cheap-o house and ideas there of;
So here's my own plan for having a forever home. Straw bale house, stucco covered bales on 18high base of mudbrick. Sub-grade rock trench foundation and a cap of a thatched roof.
replace as many electric appliances with manual or passive thermal options;
coffee maker - coffee pot
electric lights - candles and oil lamps
A/C- earth tubes, heavy curtain in two layers (out is white, inner of colored), the inherent super insulation of straw bales and thatch.
heating - thermal mass or the old fashion ceramic stoves of europe.
can opener - manual
dryer - clothes line
washer - boiling pot
refridgerator - 1920s cool box (not an ice box)
toilet - saw dust alternative
water source - deep stock pond with bamboo lined sides to reduce evaporative factor.

the only electric appliances I might need are a computer, phone and freezer. I don't list a tv or radio because the internet has pretty much rendered those obsolete.

The straw will sink intuit self because of gravity over time. Farmer here so I know what I am talking about. You need to think about
Adobe or rammed earth.

being a farmer doesn't mean you know fuck-all about earthship construction methods... I should know, I work at walmart...

Before straw bales are used for earthships, they are treated, so they don't rot, mold or 'sink intuit self'. It's still cheaper and a better insulator then solid concrete or adobe and far less labor intensive compared to rammed earth tires... lrn2earthship...

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.

I got a website, but it's a wordpress design, I'm going to remove the wordpress design and build it from scratch myself. Problem is, it will take a while and I'm completely new to web design, just started XHTML courses this week.

You wont be able to leave a comment just yet, how important is that though?

Also, if you want to stay healthy off rice and it's many dishes, buy whole grain rice because white rice is crap because it has all the good taken out of it.

You can live off a good deal of rice because it's good for you and you can make so many easy dishes out of it. If you have the money, invest in a rice cooker, it's so worth it.

Dried beans, they're cheap to buy in bulk and last forever, just have to soak them and cook them in batches small enough to use. Dried Soya beans are very cheap and high in protein, Chana Dal/ split gram are also very cheap and high in protein, mung beans too.
Buy frozen spinach and peas, these are cheap and easy to use without defrosting more than you need for cooking.
Soak up your dal or beans of choice, following the instructions on the bag or internet for time, then when boiling them up add some chopped up potatoes and spinach/peas, add salt and spices(turmeric and garam masala will do) to your taste and cook it all up for a good food that is pretty fucking healthy.
You can cook up chicken fillets with diced onions, garlic, ginger and tomatoes, salted and spiced to your liking to go with the bean/potato/spinach mix and eat like an Indian person for real cheap and not getting bowel cancer later in life.

Drink coffee and eat grapefruits, this will keep you going longer when hungry, grapefruit slows the metabolism of caffeine so aside from them being delicious and very healthy you get more value from your coffee.

Cottage cheese will make you feel full for longer, your body digests it slowly and it has a good range of amino acids, high protein and low fat, it is also pretty cheap. If it is not cheap where you live but milk is very cheap you can make cottage cheese with milk and lemon juice, look it up, making your own cheese is great.

You can mix cottage cheese curds with your spinach and potatoes when you're bored of beans to make a Saag Paneer, this is surprisingly delicious.

TLDR, A lot of Indian people are poor as fuck but eat pretty healthily and have low rates of cancer, copy them.
