Ok, I have a bit of an unusual problem.

My grandmother died a year ago and left behind a fuckload of shitty furniture. I want to help my parents sell it because they effectively became poorfags sponsoring my education.

Now, this would usually be no problem except the fact that they live in a shitty 2nd world Eastern European country, and in a small(15k residents) town no less. A garage sale, or a Craigslist ad or really anything of the sort is not an option here.

So what the fuck do I do? I doubt that anyone here has experience with this kind of issue, so maybe just help me brainstrom one up? I really want to help my old folks, but can't do so financially because of being stuck in the post-bachelors limbo.

Clean it, take lots of good pictures, and sell it to some wealthy Americans with more money than common sense on eBay. Even with international shipping they'll fucking pay through the nose if you include all the buzzwords they're looking for.

That's a good idea. If by "shitty," OP means "old" and/or "rustic" and/or "hand-crafted" he should sell them on e-bay as such. Clean em up, take some flattering picks, and list them for more than he thinks they're worth. Should keep in mind that many people subconsciously associate a higher price with higher quality/value. Could also market to wealthy Western Europeans, not just Americans

Clean it yes, absolutely. But if it needs refinshing-do NOT do it yourslef, let the final buyer do it. Refinishing furniture kills value.

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?

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?

File anarchy_cookbook_2000.pdf - (937.53KB )

Over the years, people made modifications and additions to the Anarchist's Cookbook, mainly on BBS' and (some still running) Gophers. The end result is a much more accurate, much more up-to-date version of the book.

>>3148 whilethat may be the case, there is still quite a bit of valuable information in there. For example, there is information on how to pick locks, rip off vending and change machines, and a lot of phreaking (including getting payphones to give YOU money). If there is any gram of useful knowledge that can be gleaned from it, it is far from worthless as a resource

Sounds like a lot of useless information nowadays, cities are very different, and all of the 'recipes' are gonna be the altered ones. If there are armored cars rolling in, a guy with a makeshift grenade launcher isn't going to do much. I'll stick with my baseball bat and pray for death, thanks though

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.

A bit late, but look into running your own FreePBX box (free) and just paying for a SIP service like Flowroute (~1 cent/min). If you portforward, you can get phone calls wherever you can get internet

How I lived Homeless for 4 years 17/09/18(Mon)23:41 No. 3083 ID: 7617e0 [Reply]

FIRST OFF choose your place to live carefully. This isn't just where to sleep but the city or town to live in.

Find a city or township that has buses. Ride um for a while and see if you can hide some where near by. This can mean an old abandoned building or the forest. I've had bad luck in buildings. It's easy to come home and find your shit gone or someone having stolen your spot.

Honestly the woods are the best. Find a big tree. Hide a rope ladder and it's just like having a tree house. This guy has a great guide on how to make a simple sleeping hut. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wQe8N--CpB0 Don't build anything visible or complex. You want something you can lay down at night and sleep. Hide it well.

SECOND, never leave your shit laying around. You'll loose it. Carry it with you. When i was begging for money and sucking cock for food money i had one bag. In it was a change of cloths and my tablet. That was it.

MAKING MONEY. This is up to you. Farmers pay okay for a hard day of work under the table. You can beg too and this will make you the most money. You can also sell your self but keep in mind you're gross and smell like shit. And the people that fuck homeless people arn't gonna be the cleanest. Avoid STD by offering blow jobs only. I'm an ugly guy and I was getting 10-20$ a blowjob. Not something I look back on with pride but it feed me those nights.

TECHNOLOGY! Get a cell or tablet. Ask to look at lost and founds. Ask if they found any cell phones or tablets when asked to describe it tell um "Uhh well it was black..." That's how i got my shit acer tablet. Enough to get free wifi in hotspots.

FOOD. Taco bell and mcdonalds are expensive. You wanna keep sucking cock for 10-20$ a pop for the rest of your life? NO! Fucking save your money. There is free food out their. Look up survival and eating off the land guides. Lot of places you can eat fucking weeds. And if your built your sleeping base there your set.

Churches and bazaars or what have you give out free food some times. This is when you use that phone or tablet to join facebook groups. Hell add homeless buddies to message apps.

If they happen leave a box of something big empty on the floor... grab it.. fill it up with all the small things you want.. and pack it tight.

High risk, but huge reward.

Yes, you either pay for whatever the big box item is.. or you run with this box OUT THE BACK, not the front. but inside you packed it with stuff to make it worth your while. Go towards the hardware section.. clear pack tape the box. Go pay. A cart helps.

Many stores, the back exit is unwatched.. and if anyone stops you.. "my mom is bringing the car around for a pick up." etc.

Stealing from target is super easy, if you find the right one. Go in with a friend and a backpack.If there is no one at the security desk(there usually isn't) put your backpack in a cart and walk around the store like you're supposed to be there. Grab a bunch of random shit and anything you want to steal put in your bag(its easiest to do this in the clothing section). Then act like you forgot your wallet or something and walk out with your bag and leave the cart. As long as you don't take items with security tags you should be fine. Most targets near where I live are semi-understaffed on weekdays do they'll have security on restock. As long as you use your head and don't do anything stupid like go to the same target too frequently you should be fine

Modern Mom 18/04/22(Sun)16:09 No. 3174 ID: b41c80

Being/having a female helps. I've stolen so much shit in my purse. Go in with an empty purse only holding your wallet, phone, and some junk papers. Inconspicuously put items in your purse along the way. I like to hold the object in my hand, take my phone or paper out and hold them in the same hand, look around, then put both back in my purse. Before you check out, make the inside of your purse look all messy and junky as if everything's from your house. I've never even gotten my purse checked, but it's a good precaution.

You'll have to be more careful with this one, but I've stolen plenty of clothes in the dressing room. Wear the bare minimum of clothes such as a hoodie with nothing underneath. Take a huge stack in of clothes in. Try them on and put them under the clothes that you're wearing, but make sure that it doesn't look obvious. Walk out. I've easily stolen bras, swimsuits, and shirts this way. I feel like pants and leggings are harder, but they might be doable. This is another instance where being a woman helps because boobs/curves can help hide things.

I agree on the time of day - I feel like midmorning is usually best. Depending on the store, it will be too dead early morning and too busy around early afternoon.

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?

Modern Mom 16/04/23(Sat)10:28 No. 2824 ID: 149c6f

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.
