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".

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.

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.

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.

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...

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.

What are the benefits to pretend you are poor ?

I think if people think you are poor they have more symphatic feelings to you.

Also you keep away the leeches who hunts your money like women.

How do you jewbags feel about household items such as plastic wrap and paper towel? What I mean is-- You would think it would be good to save some money on the cheaper paper towels but they usually are paper-thin then and you have to use like 3 of them to wipe up anything.

Some cheap plastic wraps are like that too where it's so thin, it doesn't cut right and stuff. However, on things like dishsoap or sponges, many things like that are great at the dollar/discount stores.

Don't use paper towels. Just buy a few dish towels from IKEA for $0.79 each and wash them. They are a lot better, cheaper and less wasteful. Get like 10 of them if you must, but if you can manage to use one as a rag and another do dry and one for hands, then you don't need many.

Don't use toilet paper, get butt wipes. You can get real, adult, butt wipes from just about any drug store for like $1.79 for a pack of 150-200. You really only need one piece per shit, provided you don't poo funny. So they end up lasting as long as 12 rolls, but for less. Keep a 12 pack around for guests and for when you run out. Cleaner butt, cleaner underwear, and it's cheaper.

Don't use plastic wrap. Get some containers. I got some good ones, but I still have "disposable" containers that have laster years. They really don't cost much more than plastic wrap and you only buy them once.

I'm not trying to say "go green", but all these things are cheaper and you can then be snobby about being green after. It's a bonus. You have to make a tiny alteration to your route, though. For example, instead of reaching for plastic wrap, you now reach for a Tupperware container. If you have total autism, this will overwhelm you, and you will be poor forever.

for TP wait till they're on sale, calculate how much you're paying per square foot, that's where all the value is at.

when they're on sale at a really good price (once every 3-6 months or so) just fill you entire fucking car with toilet paper, stock it in your closet our something and you have like a years supply for 1 person that cost you like $200

same applies to paper towel, but you guys are /jew/ so i guess fucking using dirty clothes and stealing hand towels is better for you poorfags

Couldn't you just have it sent to an anonymous wallet and then use something like www.bitcoinfog.com to anonymize them and then sell them personally to people on forums, again anonymously with accounts that have no connection to you IRL?

How would you get caught?
