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.


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.

The one thing I haven't seen discussed is Transportation!

For those of us who have a job or are looking, transportation is very important!

It is also important that it is cheap and reliable, not often two things that go well together!

Bikes are OK but if you live in an area where it's a minimum if 10 miles to any place that has work it isn't much help!

Plus most cheap cars don't get great gas mileage (Mine costs almost 120-200 a month in gas) AND you car is often a dead giveaway that you are a poor person!

What suggestions do allz you poor people have regarding cheap and reliable transportation?

This seems like a good way to go for the ultra poor, but it can get stolen pretty easily. Hefty price to pay, but if you factor in not having to pay insurance, gas, licensing fees etc it starts to look way nicer. The only thing cheaper is an actual bicycle. And just like one, you can always repair them yourself and if the motor breaks you can still get home.

I'm looking to build myself a "cheap" bike that will replace my truck for all but long drives and when something big needs to be moved. I'm self building because quality bicycles are expensive, most new bicycles don't meet my requirements, and there are a ton of old frames that do satisfy most if not all of my requirements.

I'm about 5' 8.5" with a 30-31"-ish inseam. According to most online frame size calculators for a road bike I should be looking in the 52-54cm range and for a MTB I should be in the 17-18" range.
If I want to purchase a vintage mountain bike frame that does NOT have the downward/upward (depending on POV) sloping top tube which size should I use as a guide?

If the 20" fits your height, always go for the tallest frame that you fit.

Hello /jews/ I have been thinking of a way to make money off of youtube monetizing... it might not be fast but it is sure as hell easy. So basically get one to two or more people who are willing have them make a few accounts and click any ads on videos you have on your channel... simple

Lol, good thread.

There was a guy claiming to be a Google employee on /7ch/. He claimed that within the last couple of years Google had become the most money-grubbingest whore possible with regard to their monetization policies. P much any up and comer likely to earn a big payout gets nixed on false pretenses, the reasons for which (according to their user agreement) they do not have to supply. He was paid commission on how many new users he could get rubbed off the adsense list.

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

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.

Former Wal Mart employee here. I don't shoplift but people specifically go there to rip shit off. Can't be hard because their shrink is fucking ridiculous (iirc one year had 6 million in profit and lost over 1 million in stolen shit). Ever since muh covid when they built 20 self checkouts and only have 1 normal one that may or may not be open, it's probably far worse. They don't care and I'm still salty about being treated like shit and managers being petty tyrants so fuck em.

They do have loss prevention and some employees are brown nosers who absolutely will call them because they want to stand back smirking and watch the shit show. But for every one of those there are three who will see someone rip shit off right in front of them and give zero fucks. It's a game of chance if you don't know the employees but if you see them busy shooting the shit with each other while people are calling them or on their phones it's a pretty good clue they don't care. The gung ho ones are usually sour middle aged hags so if any are working you might not want to lift anything.

Most popular method for the big expensive stuff is to have an accomplice who sets off a loud theft alarm clear across the store as a distraction while you grab something expensive and book it out a fire exit or the garden center into a getaway vehicle. Alternatively if you see a miserable or teenage employee and offer them $50 to let you out the back that very well could work. Have some oopsies at the self check out if the cashier babysitting the area is occupied, but keep in mind there is a camera on the front of it so be discreet. If you have any excuse to push a kid around in a carriage you can stuff shit in there, just don't look sketchy. It also gives you an excuse to nip into the bathroom for an "emergency diaper change" and ditch some packaging. Worse comes to worse and they say something just act like you're salty because you don't know how to use self checkouts and hate them on principle.

If you're a real piece of shit you can do what some guy did when I was there: He waltzed into the back, into the break room, calmly microwaved someone's Hot Pockets in the fridge, sat down and ate, then swiped every wallet, ring, device or other valuable that people left in there and fucked off. No one challenged him because the turnover is so high that it's not weird to see new people. Fuck you if you do this but I'm just mentioning it's possible.

Most commonly stolen items and easiest to sell are expensive meat (mostly steaks), cosmetics, shit from the baby section, and probably clothes (especially really good bras). The shitty little chicklet things that set off the alarm can be peeled off and the spider wire can usually be yanked off too if you're determined. Act like you're one of those people who won't buy something unless you can Message too long. Click here to view the full text.

Does anyone have experience or interest in building tiny homes? They are usually 100-300 sq/ft. made of found and recycled materials cheaply. Some run on solar and wind power. I work a part-time job and I'm thinking of starting a tiny house project. I can buy some materials and there's plenty of scrap around me to use. I have some carpentry skills and general know-how. Anyone interested in the tiny, minimal, cheap life?

I'm not speaking against it, it's just that there are realities that you only start to encounter when you life long term in a mobile structure
Many people who own such structures live in them on and off and this is fine- but they never run into the problems associated with long term occupancy.

Many people value the mobility of these homes- but long term you loose that mobility as soon as you have to fine regular work.
You can go happily for years moving from caravan park to caravan park- but what about when you have a regular job?

Just be aware that the longer you plan on living in one of these structures the less like a holiday in a caravan and the more like a tiny house it becomes

Agree that it is always unpleasant when something breaks at home, especially when it is such things as pipes. Fortunately, I managed to avoid this because I found a great company that knows how to do a good job of installing and repairing https://houseintegrals.com These guys know their business well and are well versed in all the nuances. I like that I can contact them at any time and they will do everything quickly and reliably. These guys are just right.

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.

With respect someone who stayed homeless for that long must either have done so due to personal preference, drug abuse or disability.

There is a significant difference between an itinerant laborer and a homeless person.
You can work for accommodation and food, the accommodation could be a farmer allowing you to sleep in a barn or set up a tent as this costs them nothing.
Itinerant workers often carry tools if only for show, tell everyone they are passing through on the way to somewhere else and are looking for work.
Lumber yards, brick yards, cement pouring yards- these places have little that can be stolen, the workers are tough to begin with and they may find the prospect of overnight security appealing.

You may find work at night as a concierge in a small hotel/ whore house, you will actually earn decent pay, use the hotels laundry facilities and sleep during the day which is a great deal safer.
Nobody ever wakes up someone in uniform, it's universally assumed that you're just overworked and "I work nights" is a legitimate excuse for falling sleep anywhere.

Many people take jobs that involve travel and so will get accommodation vouchers. Truck drivers, stewards, marine work, primary industry work, cattle, even traveling salesmen.

I would look at jobs that already force people to stay away from home before a non traditional income like pan handling.

Many people do some kind of performing art, huge variety. My favorite are musicians who carry a mouth acordian because these are inexpensive and lightweight.

On shoe repair:
This is a very specific issue which actually warrants some coverage.

You can get shoes from thrift shops, begging outside a shoe store can quickly get you a cheap pair of shoes from a guilty shopper.
Shoes are often stolen from stores, but anything you can think of store security have seen a hundred times before. I'm not going to tell you how to shop lift but bear in mind security will be far harder on someone who's not a customer than a customer who also steals.

I generally recommend putting cardboard insoles in your shoes immediately, because you can discard an infinite number of cardboard insoles but washing cheap shoes often damaged them.

To sew shoes there's a very specific techniques.
>rejoining the sole to the top
You need two strips of pliable plastic, ideally thicker than a zip lock bag but thinner than a plastic water bottle- either however is better than nothing.
You will need strong thread, thin wire, or plastic cord.
Electrical cables from junk electronics are perfect, if you split them they are full of these tiny copper wires.
You will need a punch,not a knife. Make one out of a sharpened piece of wire from a fence- finally barbed wire does you a favor.
