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.

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

Thread for making money during the summer time when we all have the most freetime.

Me personally I have about $5k cash I'm planning on using to make more and looking for some ideas on how to do so. Might be helpful for others aswell.

Meet a crusty, poor woman and clean her up, or meet a woman whose established that takes pity on you. Both are pretty hard, though the former is slightly easier.

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?

if the store has wifi, log on and get the ip. later at starbucks try that ip on port 9000 etc or 23, 8080. you can often get into the dvr on the camera system. i can get a few shops near me and steer the cameras away from steal zones, one i can wipe selected days footage, copy an old one to that filename. then you can really take the piss and when they look for who took that 42" tv....well nobody did, its still there. manager then manager suspicion. lol

go to the reduced chilled goods section. take a bar code, place on massive fillet steak. reduced bar codes dont carry weight info. use on self service till if poss. swapping codes on busy days is easy money. till op cant watch the till display while scanning esp if your wittering some donald trump rant at them

farmer 16/11/27(Sun)02:17 No. 2915 ID: 90dca0

What do you guys think about dumpsterdiving?
I've been doing it for about 6 months now, and think it's great.

You might be thinking "is it safe to eat trashed food?" It is, if you just keep your wits about you.
Any grocery store in a country where they will get in trouble for selling bad food will regularly throw away food that hasn't actually gone bad.

For example, i once found a pack of 18 eggs, where two of them were broken. (to test if eggs are still safe, you can put them under water, if they float, don't eat them.)

There are many other types of foods, such as yogurt, ketchup, canned food and peanut butter are also safe, so long as it's still sealed.

And even meat could be fine, you just have to use your senses to judge if it's gone bad, but if you're in doubt, don't take unnecessary chances.

AND REMEMBER: If you do go dumpsterdiving, make sure you don't make a mess in the dumpster area, since the workers will probably put a lock on the dumpster

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?

Please do, the Honda CRV and Subaru Outback are certainly worthy of note.

I have a 97 dodge neon and it's aright. I got if for $400. It runs pretty well, but it smells funny because the previous owner left the sunroof open when it was raining.

You could also head to the discount cigarette and buy a bunch of 20 per pack "cigars" and resell them for 4 or 5 bucks to know nothings.

I live in Texas so I don't know if these stores exist in your area, I found mine in a realllllly poor area.

Hey there guys. I am a hard working 21 year old, and I've set aside $1500 from wage slaving to begin an investment portfolio. I'm currently considering using a chunk of that money to purchase silver bullion, because it seems like a guaranteed profit over the long run. Pictured is the exact object with which I would like to start my financial future, a 1kg silver bar that can be had for only $629 in the current economic climate. Does anybody have any tips for the poor, wannabe investor such as myself? And is anybody else starting this journey or thinking about it?

I wouldn't invest in a mutual fund. You can achieve the same return or better just by investing in ETFs tied to the overall market. Rarely do fund managers consistently beat the market year after year

Modern Mom 16/01/26(Tue)15:37 No. 2804 ID: 7e287c


The Vanguard mutual funds that are tied to the stock market are pretty good.


ETF trading is a kind of basket, so I'm ok with that. Just remember, trade over the month, not over the day.

As for how much, you only have $1,500, do all of it. The more you invest now, the better you're going to be over the long run. ETF and mutual funds are low risk.
