Tiny Homes Modern Mom 14/10/19(Sun)23:28 No. 2413 ID: c32dd5 [Reply]

Does anyone have experience or interest in building tiny homes? They are usually 100-300 sq/ft. made of found and recycled materials cheaply. Some run on solar and wind power. I work a part-time job and I'm thinking of starting a tiny house project. I can buy some materials and there's plenty of scrap around me to use. I have some carpentry skills and general know-how. Anyone interested in the tiny, minimal, cheap life?

I would love to do that. I own a bit of forest behind my house I'm and thinking about building a tiny house there.

Mine is nearing completion. It was intended for my ex and son to live in but now it will just be me and sometimes my son

Tiny house might be good if you got a little bit of money for lot rent and to pay someone to hook up your power cable, but you also need a decent sized vehicle to haul it

Hey /Jews/ I've been trying to live the frugal lifestyle. Recently moved into an apartment in Southern California where I'm paying 840 a month for a studio. I don't really have close friends that are financially stable enough to room with. My question is though, (got off topic)
While living a frugal lifestyle, what do you guys do for fun? When I loved with my parents I had disposable income and didn't really care about saving. I could go out with my mates and get drinks or another hobby of ours was shooting but all of that is so expensive. I guess gaming but that gets old too.

TL;DR what do you do for fun that's frugal?

Personally I would get a cheap ass Xbone/360 because of the upcoming backwards compatibility titles. Old classics will hopefully get repopulated with multiplayer, shit like halo 3 and bad company. That could keep me entertained forever

I like to buy cheap instruments from thrift stores. Play music or do comedy bits/routines with friends at open mics. Draw, journal, try new recipes. Hang out at house parties or see local bands with my girl. Go to a mom and pop theater near me, $10 a ticket for old school movies or animations

Modern Mom 17/12/22(Fri)20:43 No. 3118 ID: 602cb1

Learning new skills is the ultimate thrifty pastime. Learn how to do basic electrical work, fix your car or bike, learn how to cook or repair shit, learn shit that looks good on your resume (use Duolingo to be conversational in some languages or learn to program or whatever).

There's tons of off grid videos on YouTube i would look at if I were you. Usually, you have to buy the land, however. If you do, buy it in a remote area where no one will make sure your stuff is up to "Code".

America, Europe, or Asia?

My protips: wear polyester undershirt, undies, longjohns and polyester dress pnts, leather jacket or polyester windbreaker or blazer, get the Summerweight Ozark trail 40 degree bag from Walmart or other similar supermicro bag, and a messenger bag to put that and your laptop in. Get some dress shoes with a walking sole. Get polyacrylic hiking socks. -homeless four years and counting. Thanks America!
Oh yeah and wear a white silk or polyester dress shirt. White cotton gets grimy instantly, silk looks great for months without washing

Also you can maybe try just buying a sleeping bag liner, for warmer months that will fit in your pocket. Switch from tablet to cheap tracphone android.

Another good investment would be a cheap roadbike, then plop 200$ to put tannus airless tires on it.

Pressure Cookers Modern Mom 16/02/10(Wed)19:09 No. 2809 ID: fe3665 [Reply]

Get yourself a pressure cooker. With it you can save on energy and food costs.
Faster cooking time = Less energy spent
Legumes and cheap meat cooks faster = cheaper food
Seriously, you can buy the most crappy cuts with most connective tissue and the pressure cooker will dissolve all that and you end up with delicious meat. Also cooking beans for example is a lot less hassle when you don't have to cook it for hours and hours.
Your relative probably has one somewhere that is useless to them lying around. They used to be a fad .

You want a crock pot. Its way safer, and low stream of energy used. Plus coming home to a hot, cooked meal is awesome are waking up to warm breakfast oatmeal. etc.
So easy to prepare.

Modern Mom 17/03/22(Wed)06:03 No. 2984 ID: 82a2e5

Slow cookers are so fucking important anon.
I mostly eat stew and soup. And eggs for breakfast. Easy, cheap. Leave it plugged in on low, go to work, come home and eat right away.

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?

>hopefully soon
Sorry for the wait.

1985-2007 Honda Accord: Typical Honda reliability with a more refined driving experience than the Civic. Available in sedan, hatchback, wagon, or coupe styles.

1987-2011 Honda Civic: Civics are very hit or miss, try to find an unmolested one or two owner example that was spared from the "import tuner" treatment. Available in sedan, hatchback, wagovan, or coupe styles.

1997-2007 Honda CR-V: The first generation C-RV has a decent amount of aftermarket support for off-roading. As for the other variants of the C-RV, they serve well for your general driving needs (excluding FWD trim).

Honorable Mention:
1986-2001 Honda Prelude and Acura Integra: The pinnacle of front-wheel drive engineering. Aggressive styling and unmatched handling. Good luck finding an example in decent condition.

This seems like a good way to go for the ultra poor, but it can get stolen pretty easily. Hefty price to pay, but if you factor in not having to pay insurance, gas, licensing fees etc it starts to look way nicer. The only thing cheaper is an actual bicycle. And just like one, you can always repair them yourself and if the motor breaks you can still get home.

How to panhandle Modern Mom 17/07/21(Fri)22:28 No. 3048 ID: 494c89 [Reply]

File 150066891966.jpg - (9.36KB , 259x194 , ninja2.jpg )

I used to be homeless. Here's how to panhandle and make money.

1. Be non-threatening. Don't have a huge dog that barks at people, don't get pissed off when people fuck with you (most white people won't, it's usually blacks or gang-banging messikins). Just don't be an asshole.

2. Be visibly homeless. Don't be completely clean.

3. Have a prop. This can be a wheelchair (it takes a few weeks to get the upper body strength and endurance to wheel yourself around), a cast (get one that you can take off), a cane.

4. You will make at least ten times as much money if you have a small, non-threatening dog. A dachshund is best, a chihuahua is second best. The dog should be calm and not bark at everyone - it takes a few days to train a dog not to bark at everyone.

People will ask you what you need, and a lot will offer to buy you dog food. It's sometimes possible to return the dog food for cash if they give you a receipt, but don't ask for it if they don't give it to you.

5. Be a woman, or at least an attractive man. Women make at least ten times as much money as men.

6. It helps if you have gray hair, especially a gray beard. I'm not sure how to dye hair gray though.
