Cheap 32GB digital audio player Modern Mom 16/09/21(Wed)22:38 No. 2880 ID: f55ac6 [Reply]

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.

Does anybody use a Japanese style futon to save apartment space? I was thinking about doing this, but I know nothing about this foreign concept. How does one go about buying a Japanese futon, and how do you use the damn thing?

Well don't try to sleep in it like the guy in the pic. You have to go almost side ways to that so it actually is a flat line under you instead of fucking up your back.

During high school our house got infested with bed bugs, which was disgusting. We think my sister's meth-addicted boyfriend infected our house, but anyway the infestation quickly eliminated wood furniture from our house. Our beds, our dressers, and some clothes. I was fine with the change. I slept on the ground on blankets and a single pillow. When we got beds again after fighting off the infestation, the mattress felt too soft and my back got twisted.

I don't like beds, but I use them. I'm thinking of going to buy a futon to save space.

How do you store futons?

Would it be possible to have a /jew/ food thread?
Maybe if enough content got posted it could become a sticky.


I love tune/pasta bake, tuna is super cheap and great for you and your brain function.

I like putting cheese slices on a ¢99 bag of Doritos as a nice nacho appetizer before I eat a ¢99 Banquet TV dinner or buttered egg noodles with salt and pepper. Hell, hard boiled eggs can be made into deviled eggs or egg salad. Eat egg salad with Doritos like normal chips and dip. Get creative!

How does one make counterfeit dollars? My buddy did it, back when I wasn't interested in knowing it, but he died back in 2010.

I don't want to make big bills since they catch on to that quick. Just small bills, like 1s and 5s. There was also someone counterfeiting 20s in the area so I'd be waiting and using different bills anyways. A basic run through of how to do it would be nice. It'd help me out a lot.

Wash the singles and print 10s. Don't be too greedy. And never spend them alone, three fakes looks bad, one fake and two real is plausible (if you‘re caught).

Fraud is probably higher return for lower risk anyway.

Modern Mom 16/05/06(Fri)20:07 No. 2829 ID: 5f3e54

Dude they will even thumbprint money to find you. And it costs a lot to invest in legit equipment. You can't use an inkjet because they give off a pattern that can be traced. Most printers don't allow you to print bills but you could get around that. However, the risk to reward ratio is way too fucking high. I've never encountered a good enough fake that you couldn't tell upon sight.

Not just inkjets, all color printers sold in the US are required to print a pattern. Inkjet, laser, copier, all print a pattern that can be traced back to that individual printer, and the authorities use sales records (manufacturer to distributor to store to owner) to track down the current owner.

What I thought about doing was buying a color printer from a equipment liquidator, basically company that buys equipment from failed businesses then sells to anyone who shows up with money. Pay cash and go a place that doesn't require ID (some do, some don't).

My problem is I moved so and have no idea where the liquidators are here, or even if there are any. The ones I went to (for legitimate needs of my employer at the time) bought their stock from dozens of states.




Extreme coupons Modern Mom 15/08/10(Mon)21:59 No. 2644 ID: 885a14 [Reply]

I witnessed a show where families used coupons to reduce their checkout bills by ridiculous amounts.
A girl was shopping for eligible items, they weren't very useful and she was getting huge quantities. The final bill was $680 with all her coupons she reduced it to $27. For the quantity of crap she had that's outrageous, she could start her own shop.

How did she get those coupons? Aren't they one per customer or something? If you know tell me of the weirding ways of the coupon clippers.

When I worked at Jewel, I actually saw a person start making money with the coupons she used. Which meant the manager came and asked her to leave. So don't go over board with it.

You can use a limit of usually 10 dollars off and then the cashier will have to manually allow it. I remember there used to be coupon generator threads on /b/ but then they died out. Don't know why I miss those.

I'm finally moving out! I paid a $100 in pre-bond, and will pay the other 180$ (for a total 280 in bond of 2 weeks) on Tuesday when I move in. Finally! Argh, so excited. Just kinda suprised the place is so cheap.

After work i mostly fuck around, not doing anything productive, and i want to change that.

Are there any means i can make money from home? I live in South America btw, so it would have to be something international. A couple bucks a day go a long way, i'll take a shot at anything (given it's legit).

Aw, this board is the epitome of what I do. I'll walk through my lifestyle. I've tried many things and kept only the things that have saved me money in the end. I don't care how others judge me, so I've taken things to the next level of weird:

My main motto in life when it comes to managing money is "Time is money". So even if I'm not at work, "chores" and other crap to me is considered work, or rather, unpaid work. So I deliberately avoid situations in which I'm forced to do more work than necessary (that is, by doing things the easier way).

1) I have carefully selected a place for me to live. One which is < 10 minute walking distance to my place of work. My job is perfect for me because I don't really interact with people much and I am sort of left to do my own thing (parcel courier). This ensures my employment because I cannot last 2 months in a customer service/work-with-others workplace without getting fired.

Also, note that this came first before everything else because it is top priority if you're looking to save money.


2) As a result, I no longer necessitate a motor vehicle. - $200 / 3 months for insurance, and $60/month for gas. And additional upkeep and maintenance expenses.


3) Rent your parking space out. +$50/month for me.

Depends on what sort of comfort you're referring to. Obviously not being stabbed in the feet by needles or anything. But generally if its uncomfortable (like sleeping on a massage table), you will adapt and over time think nothing of it. It's the adjustment there and letting your body adapt to the changes that might be the hard part.

I don't really find sentimental value in collectibles or physical objects, so maybe that just depends on the person. If you lack objects that you depend on (not need), you will always adapt to your current circumstances without them and put that want behind you. Or at least for me. To find comfort in nostalgic objects and such is like a fixation on something that the mind always wants. Take that fixation towards learning or something. I take solace in my online lectures on math and physics.

But, OP, what's your point in life? Being frugal is a virtue, yes, but in this summary you've not mentioned why you're saving this money, and you've not mentioned any sort of social interaction.

Don't you have friends that come over and question why you've plastic wrapped your house and are collecting lumber scraps, etc.?

Saving money has no purpose of itself. Are you planning on buying a sailboat and island hopping the Caribbean? Why do you so desperately need to save every cent?
