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.

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.

Follow all these to save/make money.

1. Do not drink or do drugs. If drink regularly and you find yourself here and broke, there's your problem. You need to deal with that before you can fix your money problems. No thrifty living tip will keep you wealthy and drunk or high, ever.

2. Use reusable house ware items. Do not use paper towel or plastic wrap. Ikea has kitchen towels for $0.50 each. Get about 5 and use them to wipe messes, blow your nose, everything. Get some cheap plastic containers to store food.

3. Shop around and identify the value retailers. Some grocery stores cater to the middle and upper class, and others lower, so find the lower. Depending on your location, there might be small family-run markets that sell fruits and vegetables a little cheaper.

4. Break the spending habit. Stop the psychological justifications your have to buy games, clothes, computer shit, etc. You may need to give all your money for a trusted friend/partner. You should be buying groceries each week and that's all.

5. Always be learning. You can go from zero to a $50k job in a few months if you commit yourself to learning software development online. This may take a large lifestyle change that means no more LoL, Youtube, chans, etc. For starters, see Codecademy and CS50.

6. Don't drive a car. Ride the bus or bike and move if necessary.

40 dollars a month on phone plane.

You have to be joking.

Black wireless/h20, platinum tell, att gophone, republic wireless. All of them below ten dollars a month. Same fucking network, less pricey.

I pay 3 dollars a month for da phone shit I hardly use- on a lumia 520 I got for 7 dollars. Oh you want unlimited? Rep wireless is like 10 bucks for that. And to be clear, you can just not have a phone, or have a voip number for free/near-free so work can call you.

Go buy some toilet paper OP, and buy some frozen pizzas, they're great tasting and only cost like 80 cents.

Transportation is hard. I got a scooter, but I realize thats not for everyone. Costs about the same as a used car, but very cheap to drive/maintain. Fuck riding the bus.

>1. If you spend money on drugs then you will have less money.
>2. A one-time expense may save you money over a cheaper price that you have to pay over and over.
>3. Stores aren't legally required to sell everything at the same price.
>4. If you spend money on luxury items then you will have less money.
>5. Education opens up opportunities to make money.
>6. If you spend money on gas then you will have less money.

If you want to have more money then all you have to do is take obvious steps to spend less money and make more money. Isn't this thread just retarded?

Modern Mom 14/07/29(Tue)06:42 No. 2213 ID: e22576

Basically it's just: make money, don't buy things you can't afford, don't buy things that are completely unnecessary, budget your money, save your money each month, consider each investment for time saved/enjoyment vs price.

Okay, so I have a question and since it relates to making money, I thought I'd post it here. Obviously mods are welcome to tell me to GTFO if I'm wrong.

Anyway. I take digital notes of every book I read. This helps me remember the material and pace myself so that I maintain satisfactory retention. It also helps to go over the notes if I need to, use them as reference material, etc.

This gave me an idea of running a blog/website where I'd post short summaries of the books I read. I mostly read non-fiction such as textbooks, essays and scientific papers. Hence, I thought this service would be valuable to students who either are unwilling to get the textbook or need to access the most important parts of the material quickly.

Would this work? Is it permissible in terms of copyright? Would you use this kind of service?

Obviously, all the material will be free and I'll make money from ads and paid link shorteners.

Okay, I'm not a conspiracy theorist, but an opportunistic channer interested to see if the price of Air Malaysia had crashed after the disasters. Since they are more or less simply an unfortunate happenstance, the fundamental value of the airline shouldn't be any less and should correct itself over time. On this assumption, I started some research and you know what, the price of the airline crashed one week before the first plane went missing. What the fuck is going on? Check out the one year charts for their share price on any website and the dates for both disasters. Riddle me that.

Modern Mom 14/07/20(Sun)21:23 No. 2201 ID: 86e709


Not much of a riddle, OP.
If you were the airline and lost massive $ in your stock, you'd probably quickly start running a leaner operation cutting maintenance costs and overworking skeleton crews, to compensate, cranking up the likelihood of disaster.

Okay, I'm not a conspiracy theorist, but I'm going imply that a conspiracy may be behind this coincidence that I found.

Just wanted to let you fellow cheapfags know, I make 800/week before taxes, so like $650/week, I work mostly from home doing little to no work, mostly browsing motherless. I have a low-spending profile, no cable tv, I get all my shows bitorrent, I spend almost nothing on my cell phone, I pay no rent money because I'm freeloading on my gf's pad. I chip in $100 bucks a month for electricity, and I buy my own food wholesale. I own a motorcycle that gives me a week of gas for just $10, besides all these things, I don't worry about saving a nickle, and I concentrate on making a buck. My expendable currency it great because of my lifestyle; as I do what I want, and I'm free to buy what I want without thinking of a budget. My recent purchase was a $900 bicycle just to go riding on the weekends with the gf by the beach. I only buy nice clothes and things of quality.

Pic unrelated.

Am I doing okay? or is there room for improvement?

This. If you're not keen on investments, there's companies that do it for you and make a neat buck for both you and the company ninety-nine times out of one hundred.

$800 a week? What kind of job is this?

Modern Mom 14/07/27(Sun)06:02 No. 2208 ID: e65a14

There is no way that we can possibly determine whether you have room for improvement or not. So what the fuck kind of question is that? Aren't you just bragging about your lifestyle?

Is the share trading negligibly skill based?

Goldman sachs does proprietary trading. Banks trade. Banks have supercomputers. Banks have lots of experts on one, orchestrated team. Banks have the resources to 'simulate' individual traders and the market power to dominate any amount of private wealth. Unless an individual has access to privileged information and can dodge authorities who regulate against them, how can it ever be rational to trade in the share market?

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 can't believe this thread came back from the dead!

I'm so happy, that's even better than a new thread being made if you ask me.

As for me, my blog is still up and I'll be happy to help anyone else out with theirs, I had a big problem with the service I was making money blogging with though, so that part went tits up, not that the site is bad, it may have been my own fault for accidentally registering twice.

Blogging is getting harder in some ways to profit from but in other ways easier; with almost anything (except women...sort of) more people makes the whole thing pick up steam faster, especially if everyone is dedicated to helping the blog to their right, so that the whole thing goes fill circle.

I'm an erotic writer now myself, so keep on working hard and building your talents, when you find what you're good at then don't be afraid to charge for it, quality over quantity.

I don't think I'd be too good at blogging, but I've got a lot of time to kill. Anything to do that might help, and maybe make a bit of capital?

Modern Mom 14/07/20(Sun)01:07 No. 2199 ID: 7dfa38

I am also still here. Was thinking of making a blog and writing 60+ 500 or so word posts for starters, then devote time to learning SEO.

Is OP still the contact person?

Whatever. Although home visit is sometimes for the best, people don't wanna drag their shit to your place and drag it back home. Quick and easy fixes don't even require that, and I've had cases where people haul me computers with BIOS setting all messed up and want parts replaced, because they don't know squat. I actually swapped hard drive for a shittier one, owner wouldn't notice. Trade your way up if at all possible.
As for whether you should advertise on CL, thats up to you. Some people may expect higher quality of service from Internet advertiser, but they just don't know the Internet.

biff 14/07/16(Wed)07:24 No. 2190 ID: 3e2241

I'd give both of those asses a 12 second inhale.

Op, pay me to do your ads for ya, or to ghoswrite erotica for you to re-sell. Set a budget for advertising and spending on making your money make more money each month and don't go over it. Find good people who have track records of success and who would rather you pay them a bit more than you'd pay he average joe and who in return are honest and get you good deals on stuff, like free ad credits and cheap/free hosting (hint hint, I do both of those XD)
