I gave up work in a warehouse, because they were moving further from where I live. The commute would be just ridiculous, and the expenses - double, if not tripple! Being a drone is not OK in my book.
So I have a choice now - mooch off of girlfriends parents I live with OR take a part time job, as a "sanitary technician" in a local police station.
I want to know your opinion, everything really. Until this day it never occurred to me, that I would also have to clean shitters (which I'm quite fine with, and proficient, also). So lets hear it! Any cleaners here, part time workers or both?

You could at least start with the sanitation job. It's a local police station, not an international airport or a high-rise office building. Put in your hours, skate out of there once it's done, and save what you can.

Maybe hard work on your part will be recognized, who knows. Or just be a drone; it doesn't matter. My view is, any hour you spend earning a wage is an hour you've most likely avoided incurring debt. My current job started as what seemed to be a 2 week temp job helping a local company get their customer paperwork into appropriate files. Almost 4 years later I'm an indispensable cog in my national department. It pays shit (relatively), but the OT is constant and it allows me my freedom and my ability to afford my lifestyle, frugal as it is.

Mooching off your gf's parents is just a shitty and overall horrible idea. It will eventually sour all involved against you; first with the folks who lose financially, and then your gf, if you can't make anything of your loafing self. Nothing says turn-off quite like a date night postponed because you have to beg her dad for gas money.

Okay, I'm not a conspiracy theorist, but an opportunistic channer interested to see if the price of Air Malaysia had crashed after the disasters. Since they are more or less simply an unfortunate happenstance, the fundamental value of the airline shouldn't be any less and should correct itself over time. On this assumption, I started some research and you know what, the price of the airline crashed one week before the first plane went missing. What the fuck is going on? Check out the one year charts for their share price on any website and the dates for both disasters. Riddle me that.

If you cruise the local thrift stores, particularly the alternative ones, you can luck out and find some cheap beaten Demonia or something, Demonia quality is shit though. You will probably never find New Rocks like you have pictured for too cheap but you could be insanely lucky. TBH you should probably just get a used pair of English-made Docs that will last you forever if you take care of them, and go for a trad-goth look with thrift store black clothing.

I actually have one goth friend who lives in a crazy thrifty fashion, and one of her main sources of income is buying tons of shit from very cheap thrift stores and selling them to nicer exchange stores, but she knows that business.

>>2541
Same friend collects boots in any size she can, if it's too small you can cram a few different insoles in there and make them fit. You can also find nice insoles inside of shoes in thrift stores.

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.

this. if you don't eat a nutritional meal, and just eat junk every day, that'll enable to become sick more often. being sick more often will just have you spending more money on your health. this is the opposite of what we want.

What are your thoughts on dollar stores? I'm not too sure on buying food from there, mainly because all of the stores in my area are shady, but what about toiletries? Would it be worth buying my soap there, rather than a drugstore or supermarket?

Could someone direct me to some quality VoIP services? I've had my cell phone turned off for over two months now. I don't plan on wasting $30 a month on calling and texting local numbers as well as family. Preferably looking for free services. I'm about to try to order a cheap headset with a mic as I don't have a microphone besides a Rockband mic that pretty much has stopped working.

I heard that Amazon takes a massive cut off what your profits. eBay takes about 10-15%, depending on the price.

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.

Nice, I'm working on a new series and I'll need cover art done, I just have to finish it.

Since I'm here, I'll also update you folks on the progress, successes and failures I've experienced!

I was doing ghostwriting for a while, and I still do it from time to time, mostly when I need cash for something and I'm in between my own writing projects. I've made a decent amount with ghost writing (a bit over 1k) within a couple of months, which felt pretty good, I guess I'm at least decent at it, though each time I go back and read my stuff from 6 months ago I laugh and think "Did I REALLY write that?".

I used Odesk.com, which is now upwork,com, but i had a bunch of personal stuff happen and I lost some good clients sinc eI couldn't deliver, so my rating went from nearly perfect to like 3.5 or something, which sucks. I use guru.com as well, but I got jewed out of a 350$ book series when the client up and decided to take my books and her shekels, then run off to Jerusalem, but I'll just self publish the books myself. I put out a lot of free stuff on smashwords and I'm trying to find ways to reach more people, any help there would be great. So far I'm on literotica, amazon and smashwords, but I want to be more places if possible.

Again, thanks for the cover art contact! I will contact them and see if they are interested!

Jew on my friends!

I've tried so many things, affiliate marketing, livestreaming video games (twitch), youtubing (vlogging/gaming), writing, blogging (haven't tried ebooks on amazon, on a website or both yet which I will work on next most likely).

Creating an online store/business via shopify and Amway. So far not much success with anything, I get some money from referrals from affiliate marketing and supplement referrals I still get.

My twitch following is growing though slowly.

Hello everyone,

Recently, I've re-stumbled upon some great pieces of literature made by anarchists in the late 1960s.
Over half of it is about how to make explosives and drugs, but there a good few other pieces by them on how to live is a free "yippie".

This one is called "Fuck The System" and details on how to live completely free in New York City by finding free food, getting phone calls with those fake coin tricks, etc. However, this is all completely outdated.
https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Fuck_the_System

Could we make our own, modern, version?

Rice and Beans. Buy 2 pounds of beans for $1.50 and a pound of rice for $1, this will last you several days eating 3 times a day, a week if you eat little. Look up instructions on how to cook them, you just need water and a stove. You can store them almost indefinitely without any refrigeration.

This is how your average 3rd world country poor person survives on less than a dollar a day, they eat the cheapest foods available, and in any part of the world it's rice and beans. I spend less than $3 a week in the United States when I eat like this.

Every else's suggestions here will have you spending more than $1 a day.
