Good first/low budget investments. Modern Mom 14/09/13(Sat)08:47 No. 2312 ID: 1862b0 [Reply]

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.

Modern Mom 17/01/02(Mon)01:55 No. 2938 ID: d3d12c

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.

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.

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.

Modern Mom 16/06/03(Fri)23:19 No. 2842 ID: 179a63

>Letter carriers for USPS require a test that is heavily bias towards women, minorities and former military.

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.

I'm a student with an income of 540E/month.

I already work and would like no know what is the optimal use of, say, 500E / month with the intention of making more money.

I do not have expenses and politics (relations and influence trafficking) are another topic.

I can sell a lot of stuff I have and probably change my job to a more lucrative one, but since I now have a steady income I bet there's something I can do with it.

I'm not looking for something that requires constant, physical attention like buying/selling objects, but I guess I could try with silver.

SHould I invest? Should I save and study for something that will give me money?

It sounds like you've got the entirely wrong mindset to at this point, but I might be reading too much into the way you phrased your post. Nothing will ever give you money, you have to put forth effort of some kind. Also the amount you get is equal to the amount of time, effort and skill you spend/put into it, but effort is far more important than time in most cases and skill trumps the other two by a fair sight. That applies to something as simple as selling an item as well.

Pro-tip. If you need a super cheap music player buy a used android tracfone on ebay.

The audio quality via headphones sucks, but if you link it up via bluetooth it'll sound good. (I do this in my car)

I'd also recommend using the app poweramp, but make sure you go into the settings and enable max audio thread priority.

I was about to waste $50 on a Fiio m3 until I discovered my old tracfone would work great.

Hey jew. I am a new broke college student. I have perfectly good feet but they don't move fast enough. What do you guys think is the best legal way someone like me could acquire a bicycle or longboard without breaking the bank.

craigslist is not some magical place to get a good bike, maybe every once in a while, but most people are selling 88 dollar walmart bikes used and beaten for 50 dollars on craigslist. Its hardly worth selling this shit, and the bikes they sell are usually near-worthless in reality.

Also, I have some 600 dollar bike from years of yore, and the thing is just as shit as some cheapo bike to a casual biker like me.

here's the deal, you either pay for what a bike is worth (you do research it's new, and good) you get a stolen bike (fuck you), or you get a shit bike from walmart and kill yourself when the crank arm falls off your bike and you crash into a parked car because a retard asshole didn't put it together correctly.

you really cannot just decide that you want something cheap and expect quality. Compared to the price of a car, 1k is nothing for a quality bike and you will get a quality bike for that price. fucking save up you bitch. this is not an area where you can be #jew and think that it will end up all ok in the end, you'll either get something that isn't fit for you, it isn't built correctly, it is built with shit components and you'll end up spending the bikes cost in replacement parts, or you'll crash and never bike again.

fuck, these fucking people and their cheap bikes.

After seeing how cheap the blades for double edge razors are compared to the obscenely over-priced replacement blade cartridges, I'm interested in learning more about double edge razors.

It sounds like aside from being a fraction of the price, the blades even last longer since you can completely remove, clean and dry them, which is impossible with cartridges.

The problem: how difficult is it to shave with these things? Will a new user have a close shave at a fraction of the price, or a face full of blood-stained toilet paper squares? At this point, I'm forced to use the same dull blades that should have been trashed a long time ago, because I can't shell out the money for replacements.

tl;dr shaving for jews

I switched to DE razors. I use Personna Lab Blues. Made in America and $12.30 for 100 blades. I use one blade a week. I have an Omega Boar brush 10066 and I use Arko shave sticks. I was gifted a Gillette Super Adjustable razor from an elderly uncle. I spent about 60 bucks for blades, a brush and case of arko sticks. I have enough shaving supplies for 2 years of shaving minimum.

Modern Mom 16/08/13(Sat)05:27 No. 2869 ID: a58fb8


There is a learning curve with DE Safety razors. Its a minor skill. Initially you will deal with razor burns, nicks and cuts. It might take you a couple weeks to a couple months to learn to shave with a DE razor. Its very slow at first. After another few months or more and after developing some muscle memory you will get faster but probably not as fast as using a cartridge blade system(mach3 or similar). Aim for a socially acceptable shave and you'll get a very comfortable shave everyday. If you go for baby bottom smooth you'll be dealing with a lot of irritation and won't be able to shave every day.

There are some great resources available online though.

Badger and Blade forums


On youtube look for "Mantic59" and "nickshaves" both have playlists for beginners. Many others post shave reviews on youtube for products.

I'll never go back to cartridge razors again. They tore up my neck and caused in grown hairs. Now that I know how to shave with a DE Safety Razor I don't have any of those problems and after the initial investment in a razor and brush I pay about 30 cents a week to shave(10 -15 cents per razor blade and the rest on shave soap and witchhazel)

Modern Mom 16/09/03(Sat)15:37 No. 2872 ID: f3169f

Protip: wet your face, apply the stick of soap to your skin, then lather it up using the brush on your face. You'll use a fraction of the amount of soap compared to using a mug and transferring the lather to your face.
