Congratulations you poor bastards have earned your own board. Don't fuck it up. Any relevant rules will be created/added to this post when the time comes, but for the meantime try to keep it SFW.

Go Wild

Jesus Christ I'm useless; I should have specified that this board is for poor niggers to share money saving tips/vouchers and whatever.

I started with a criminal record for petty narcotics pos and a 'computer tresspassing' record guaranteeing me unemployment almost everywhere except manual labor. I was also living in a SRO in the worst area you can ever imagine, had no money, huge debt and couldn't even finish university so washed out in the second year due to poverty.


STEP 1 - GET A FUCKING JOB

Any job will do. Some shitty manual labor position is great because then you also get some activity in so you aren't a fat bastard.

Easy jobs to get are landscaping (usually pays under the table cash), construction clean up, warehouse, or whatever you can find on your local Craigslist 'gigs' section. Alternatively there's the dreaded nightshift tech support. Look around for these on CL, or move to somewhere in your country where the jobs are. In Canada this means terribad mining and oilfiend work but it pays like $40/hr and there's nothing else to do up there, perfect for studying.

For me, I got a job at the post office and delivered mail, which meant I got off early and had lot's of time for school. Also consider institutions that will pay you to learn a trade, such as telephone companies and whatever else.

STEP 2 - START SAVING MONEY

Basic income budget rule is 70/20/10

What are you currently doing to get rich apart from your job and your financial markets investments? Here are my current projects:

* entryism: Penetrated a powerful political party and building clout while advising a minor parties with big ideas about using technology to allow constituents to directly vote for policies and for a minor party with a lot of support for science

* doing cancer prevention, policy and addiction research

* might switch to international mental health research

* learning how to use amazon web services as a cloud based server

* mental health first aid training course next week

* organising a charity conference

* applying for transitional housing out of category 3 homelesness

Am I the only one on this board who’s thrifty because he wants to become financially independent? Can we have a financial independence thread?

Right now I’m stashing 30% of my paycheck (as much as I can afford) into etf’s. Eventually my girlfriend and I are going to move into an RV or tiny home full time and hope the etf stash pays enough in dividends to supplement our income to where we can both choose to work part time jobs

Questions about Social Security Disability Modern Mom 18/03/15(Thu)23:58 No. 3140 ID: d789d4 [Reply]

Amerifag here.

So to get SSDI or SSI you can - among other things - lose a one hand above the wrist and one foot above the ankle, both feet above the ankle, or both hands above the wrist.

I'm sort of trained as a programmer, but I'm currently homeless so I can't continue learning on my own (too busy trying not to die). I want to be disabled so I can get a place of my own via section 8 housing, pay my bills with SSI or SSDI, and then spend the rest of my free time programming until someone will hire me for a decent wage and then I can get off it.

---

So how can I amputate a hand and a foot in a plausibly deniable manner?

For my hand I could light and hold onto a sufficiently powerful firework (maybe a m80), but I'm not sure that will take it off above the wrist - more likely I'd blow my fingers off.

For my ankle I could eschew socks, pour water in my boots, lace them very tight, and then go on a 15 miles hike several days in a row. This will induce trench foot which should lead to gangrene. Alternately I could wait until winter, pour water in a boot while wearing a cotton sock, and then sleep with that foot out of the sleeping bag - this will also work on a hand, if I use a cotton glove in a leather (waterproof) glove.

I knew a girl that was on disability because she was "bipolar". Fake it to make it.

Only thing she did all day was play WoW and ate. She seem "normal" to me with nothing wrong. B ut I think she just faked it so she won't have to do shit.

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.

admit it, you were addicted to some kind of drug. no one of sane mind stays homeless for four years and has to suck dick for FOOD when there's churches, temp agencies, and blood donation centers.

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?

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

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).
