save money on food by not paying for it shepard+dog 17/02/15(Wed)16:19 No. 2954 ID: f1d828 [Reply]

hello i see were trying to save money so i thought id share some general rules i use when dumpster diving

while it may seem nasy at first its amazing what is tossed away by the "effcent" capitalism we live under i currently just finished a pack of baggles with chease and ham to make a crude Mc morning sandwich

1 time
times one of the two most important factors time can take on multiple faces however such as the time from throw out till you find and the time of year it can also account for the time of dumpster removal and pick up these three factors come together under the general rule of time obviously the less time between finding food and a dumpster and when the food enters the dumpster the better as it will have less time to rot however given the time of year currently as I write this it is winter there for the outside is a complete freezer thus negating the factor of how long ago it was thrown away as the natural environment is preserving goodies

2 packaging
Packaging is the only barrier between delicious food and the rotting external environment found within a dumpster so only take items whose packaging is visibly intact this is also a decent security measure to determine whether or not bugs or varmints have tried to nibble away at the food

3 processed goods
Obviously the more processed that food items are the safer they are as things such as canning or pasteurization kill any potential bacteria inside the packaging so as long as the package is intact these items are prime value and anything else in your bag should be secondary to any sort of canned good or processed packaged food things such as flour or sugar should be avoided fruits and vegetables should also be avoided as they spoil easily and rarely have airtight packages that's can adequately protect the food inside

4 meat hiararchy
Due to my understanding of meat processing this kind of falls under processed Goods but it's a bit more specific from my experience pig meat is one of the only meats you can be almost 100% certain is safe to eat even in the middle of the hot summer sun this is due to the high amounts of salt that are used in the production process of pig meat the second popular meet would be some sort of steak or cut cow meat I do not recommend ground beef or any sort of Blended ground-up meat as it is harder to identify spoiling last on the list is bird meat I would advise to steer clear of bird meat of any kind due to the higher levels of diseases being present in bird meat such as chicken

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.

Here's a 1 week shopping list (priced from an expensive region, store brand stuff):

I beg to differ. Sometimes disposable paper kitchen towels is the only ting that can do the job. Not that it should be used for everything.

I eat very cheap.

Potatoes and beans are great as you fill full without eating much and there are lots of protein.
Home baked high fiber bread is also good and cheap.
Frozen veggies, spice, broth and noodles makes a cheap, healthy ramen soup.
Beans are great with both bread and rice.
Potatoes are great by them selves just cooked or baked, with a little salt and some spices.
I also "splurge" on fish and lean chicken to eat healthier.
All in all I eat for no money and am still eating healthy, and getting all the things my body need.

If you want to be thrifty, just clean up the pajeet way. You're just going to wash your hands after you wipe anyway, might as well put something on them to clean off.

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?

Invest in silver. I am 39 now, and when I was 19 silver was $5 an ounce and now it is $17. Over 300% increase in only 20 years! A few years ago it was around $40!!!

Gold great if you can afford it as it's worth is tied to world currencies. In the same 20 year time perios gold has also risen 300% from $500 an ounce to around $1500.

You can use the 2008 market prices for most things, to determine the cheapest it's willing to get.

Silver hit $9/oz in 2008, went to $48 by 2011 before ComEx started manipulating the price w/ by dumping naked futures on the market.

ECB + JCB are having to buy ~$150bn of "stuff" a month just to keep their economies afloat. We're gonna get slammed with a ton of inflation sooner than later. Interest on fiat is verifiably the problem now, they'll resort to permanent money creation and pay off their own debts. Once that happens we'll get lots of inflation and hard assets will do very nicely.

Forgot to mention, I'm building my position anywhere between $9-16/oz.

Gonna sell $30+ easily.

I'm mostly excited for cryptocurrency, Peercoin is $5m cap vs Bitcoin's $12bn, and is the genesis for the system Ethereum uses (and a ton of other clones). $5m cap will easily get to $100m sometime 2017, it's cheapest I think it'll ever get right *now*. 33c average cost, I'll easily be able to dump these for $1, then $3, then $5-7, and saving a chunk for whatever stupid number it gets to.

Gotta love standard deviation movements in niche assets! Rare, but they exist!

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

It's worth doing if you want BULK food for free, you just have to get lucky/know when stores throw stuff out.

Used to keep the roommates at my old house fed from a nearby Weis. There's usually a few products that've expired and they're all thrown out. so you can walk away with towers of frozen pizza or grocery bags full of cheese. It's insane, this country wastes a ton just to look nice.

Lotsa free food out there.

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.

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?

Hey /jew/,

How the fuck do I get a new job? I'm underpaid ($13/hr for $15/hr work) by a company that doesn't allow vertical movement. I have to out up with a manager whose usual response is "I don't care". At this point, this job isn't worth it anymore.

How do I get a new job? Every time I check craigslist, I find ads like "MAKE $3000 A WEEK DRIVING FOR UBER" or ads looking for part-time.

So, how do I find a job where I make more and keep the same level of benefits?

My local USPS is hiring, I didn't think they paid that well. I have a year or so of warehouse experience, too. I'll drop an application there.

Hopefully my being a 20 year old white male in good shape won't fuck me.

There is a high-speed reading and memory test to separate the retards to carrier positions and the morons to clerks but that is about it. Lot of former military people though, but I think that's because pension savings and what-not carry over and they get a head start on retirement benefits.

Your young, companies are not going to give a fuck. A lot of people are looking for jobs. Make yourself stand out. Even if you work harder then others, you can still get fucked over by having the company putting you where they need a hardworker and have your pay set to other fuck offs that dont do shit.
