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.

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.

I stole a couple of rolls from one of my previous jobs because they would never lock the paper rack. I easily snuck a few out. I was also given free food a couple of times by the ladies at the reception there since I was friends with them before they were promoted from phone agent to receptionist.

Finally, there was a problem with the coffee machine at work where the coin slot was jammed and by fucking around with my home keys in the slot, I got over 5$ in quarters in the return slot.

I drink a lot of soda. A lot.
For convenience I was always buying more cans and small bottles to drink at home and at work. Recently I switched entirely to 1.25L bottles which only cost $1 a piece. Over the course of an entire year that saves me a little over a thousand dollars.
If you have a vice you're not willing to give up, breaking down the per unit of measure cost can still allow you to at least spend way less on said vice.

1. Get TextNow number on your phone. Fake name on account.

2. Make a Skip The Dishes account
with a fake name, set delivery at a public place, mall/coffee shop. Whatever ISN'T your address. (Or use your address, but don't complain to me if you get heat on you).

3. Order a decent sized order. 40-100 dollars worth in CASH (ROI is worth it, trust).

4. After you enjoy your delicious meal go to skip the dishes support on their app.

Complain that the entire order came in cold.

You'll get your entire order refunded, no questions asked.

You guys reminded me of few things to keep in mind when diving, i'll just share these to the people who don't know yet:

-look for best before-> milk products wont instantly spoil, but rather start to ferment at some point after best before. the fermenting isn't bad for you. If there is actual mold in the milk product, it has been contaminated and cannot be eaten/drunk anymore.

Different story with meat: you can literally see&smell, when the meat is gone bad. You can cook and eat partially rotten meat, but it will taste like shit. If you want to try, remember to cook it WELL. uncooked spoiled meat will give you problems.

I've eaten all kinds of stuff, and there has been only a couple of times that I regret. One time wasn't from diving. i made some noodles and added eggs and mayo on the food. Forgot to eat it and left it in room temperature for ~30h.
Then i learnt that egg products don't age well. That was a bad shitstorm. I didn't taste anything special, maybe because all the other sauces that i had in it but that didn't stop me from getting food poisoning.

Tldr; dumpster diving is ok, just check the smell and taste beore eating.

fucking optus stop throttling my connection speed 19/04/24(Wed)03:18 No. 3291 ID: 891d66

here in (((australia))) dumpster diving will get you arrested
what i like to do is go to a supermarket where they have the nuts and shit in those bins with the scoops. Do it at night so there's less people to notice you, but before they clean the shop.
autists always drop stuff on the floor or in the scoop holders or onto the shelf below. This means that you're not technically shoplifting because they're discarded. On a good night I can get a few handfuls.

I started planting two potato plants from cuttings and a bunch of tomato seeds. Thinking of either selling them to a farmer's market or use it to provide for myself and enjoy a good salad. In the future I'll also try planting lettuce and otger greens. Maybe I can also extend this to grain crops, but would they work with a makeshift hydroponics apparatus?

Any irrigation tips? I only have inside tap (no hose), SO is asleep when I get home and faucet is loud, so I don't water and then fall asleep. Or I forget. Can I rig up a milk jug somehow?

>>3225 "olla" method might work for plastic bottles and such. Filling up each one and putting the cap back on should last almost a week without watering.


Dedicate a patch for compost or worms as that's like steroids for the crops. Post back OP and tell us how you go!

What is the point of trying to make money if the only job i could get,pays less than 150$ a month (a very good job is no more than 600$ though)
Tired of this hell life i got memed into taking a course in order to get a diploma to then find a good job, but my family basically told me to fuck off and i can't pay it (will probably be homeless soon)
i could sell everything i have to buy a plane ticket, is there somewhere i could go? i don't want to be an illegal alien forever

I don't know what kind of ticket you could get, but come to Finland. We have a super wellfare system and If your'e willing to do at least some work, your'e welcome by pretty much anybody.(There's some political problems ATM with "refugee tourism")

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

Protip: wet your face, apply the stick of soap to your skin, then lather it up using the brush on your face. You'll use a fraction of the amount of soap compared to using a mug and transferring the lather to your face.

Modern Mom 19/02/14(Thu)17:41 No. 3268 ID: ad8536

Just use a trimmer you fucks

Modern Mom 19/03/05(Tue)23:21 No. 3278 ID: 1619ea

If you've ever shaved with a bic razor, it's basically the same skill wise. It's not hard at all. They are safety razors so even if you get a tiny nick, it's not like you're going to die from a slit throat or something. They are about as dangerous as a bic razor.

Try a sampler pack of different blades because they are very personal and good for one person might be shit for the next. I use rainbow blades from UK, but shark, feather, gillette (from different plants) are a good bet. I used to get a blade called crystal that was really good too.

The meat is too expensive in my country and I just want to get protein with another way. I realized "eating less eat and more mushrooms" will be better for me and it's healthy. I found some mushroom growing kit but It's uselles after 2 harvesting. Someguys grow mushroom in plastic bag but as I see mushrooms grow so slow. Is there a way to make my own mushroom kit with wood or something else?

Modern Mom 19/02/17(Sun)21:49 No. 3274 ID: 1e5fb7

Here you go.
Also lentils are a cheap protein source.

Modern Mom 19/02/17(Sun)23:11 No. 3275 ID: cc1b61

Yes you are right. Proteins of mushroom is half of chicken meat but it's more healthy than chicken meat.

Modern Mom 19/02/19(Tue)04:20 No. 3277 ID: 1e5fb7

Not chicken, lentils. I used to live off of lentils and rice, because it was so cheap and filling. $2 worth of lentils was food for a week for me and I'm a pretty big guy. Lentils have a good amount of protein too. It might be worth looking into.
