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.

Follow all these to save/make money.

1. Do not drink or do drugs. If drink regularly and you find yourself here and broke, there's your problem. You need to deal with that before you can fix your money problems. No thrifty living tip will keep you wealthy and drunk or high, ever.

2. Use reusable house ware items. Do not use paper towel or plastic wrap. Ikea has kitchen towels for $0.50 each. Get about 5 and use them to wipe messes, blow your nose, everything. Get some cheap plastic containers to store food.

3. Shop around and identify the value retailers. Some grocery stores cater to the middle and upper class, and others lower, so find the lower. Depending on your location, there might be small family-run markets that sell fruits and vegetables a little cheaper.

4. Break the spending habit. Stop the psychological justifications your have to buy games, clothes, computer shit, etc. You may need to give all your money for a trusted friend/partner. You should be buying groceries each week and that's all.

5. Always be learning. You can go from zero to a $50k job in a few months if you commit yourself to learning software development online. This may take a large lifestyle change that means no more LoL, Youtube, chans, etc. For starters, see Codecademy and CS50.

6. Don't drive a car. Ride the bus or bike and move if necessary.

Here's a 1 week shopping list (priced from an expensive region, store brand stuff):

>Lists $70 a week diet for /jew/

Yeah man like anyone actually needs "high quality" meat to survive. It's all the same shit, it's still bad for you no matter how high quality you purchase.

You can literally live on $2 a week in the States eating a vegan diet of beans and rice and be healthier than 100% of all the keto dieters, which is a trend btw only in first world countries.

I'm from the U.S. but living in a third world country right now where you can buy entire meals for literally 10 cents, people here eat tons of rice and cheap root vegetables and fruits.

In the U.S. it's rare that someone goes an entire meal without any meat, people do that here without even noticing. By not noticing, I mean most people here aren't vegetarians, but people often go entire days without any meat and it's completely normal to them.

I remember when I was working for this rich company in the U.S. and they got Chipotle catering for everyone. It was really delicious. At one point all the meat ran out, and the CTO of the company who was this spoiled rich millionaire guy, dejectedly said something like "There's no more food left" and then went to put his plate back, when there were literally tons of rice, brown rice, pinto beans, black beans, salads, etc, left. I went back in for seconds without any complaints, and it was delicious.

Oh yeah, very few people here are overweight, like maybe 0.5% of the population, and they don't set any time for exercise either, their movement is just part of their day to day.

>be actual jew
What a shitty list.
Quality is all that matters.

>all the same
Not true.
Grain-fed meat is different than grass-fed meat.
Same as you would be if only ate suggary seed (soluble fibre) and no whole grass, husk, bran (insoluble fibre).

>no fat
>keto trend
Fat is a more efficient form of fuel.

this. if you don't eat a nutritional meal, and just eat junk every day, that'll enable to become sick more often. being sick more often will just have you spending more money on your health. this is the opposite of what we want.

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.

Why on earth would you amputate yourself? Niggers manage to scam welfare without chopping off limbs. I don't know much about being homeless, but they got a damn guide on this board. Follow that shit. You might be desperate, but if you're about to cut off a limb there has got to be something you can apply for.

Modern Mom 18/03/16(Fri)20:52 No. 3142 ID: d789d4

Wakandan-Americans staff most offices for things like disability, welfare, food stamps, and section 8 housing. Plus many of them shop for diagnoses from coethnics and sympathetic shitlibs. They have an entire network for scamming that I do not, therefore I must do something desperate to get disability.

Oh yeah, one other thing: I have $55,000 in student loan debt that I can't pay off because no one will hire a homeless person.

I can't follow the guide because the local library is only open 4 or 5 hours a day and I miss 2 of those hours due to meals at the local homeless shelter. No where else has free wifi and plug-ins out of the weather (which is cold and rainy here). I literally do not have the capability to use my laptop often enough to learn anything, and when I do is when the library is noisiest (the junkies are getting into arguments or local NEETs watch their anime).

Rice and Beans. Buy 2 pounds of beans for $1.50 and a pound of rice for $1, this will last you several days eating 3 times a day, a week if you eat little. Look up instructions on how to cook them, you just need water and a stove. You can store them almost indefinitely without any refrigeration.

This is how your average 3rd world country poor person survives on less than a dollar a day, they eat the cheapest foods available, and in any part of the world it's rice and beans. I spend less than $3 a week in the United States when I eat like this.

Every else's suggestions here will have you spending more than $1 a day.

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.

My protips: wear polyester undershirt, undies, longjohns and polyester dress pnts, leather jacket or polyester windbreaker or blazer, get the Summerweight Ozark trail 40 degree bag from Walmart or other similar supermicro bag, and a messenger bag to put that and your laptop in. Get some dress shoes with a walking sole. Get polyacrylic hiking socks. -homeless four years and counting. Thanks America!
Oh yeah and wear a white silk or polyester dress shirt. White cotton gets grimy instantly, silk looks great for months without washing

More tips

MONEY AND FOOD" Beg out side of fast food places. Keep the money. And if someone accuses you of just buying booze or drugs. Tell him, "Nah man I'm homeless I just want to buy some food and i'll be going." Same mother fucker that just called you a druggy might just buy you some food instead. That fucking works out perfect. No need to buy anything.

STAYING ONLINE. I like my porn, youtube and tv shows. Laptops are okay. But unless you have a good one get a tablet. Easier to carry, less space and the battery life lasts way longer. Plus faster to charge. If you sleep where you got no wifi download your shit. Plus tables can be charged using usb batteries. You can get these at fucking dollar tree. I'd buy 10 of them, a few adapters so i can plus all 10 into a power strip (got all this shit at dollar tree) and then charge them on some outlet i'd find on the street. Power for the tablet for maybe 2 days of constant use.

WASHING If your homeless you're gonna start smelling. Public washrooms are great to clean up.

SAVE YOUR MONEY. Like fuck, do you wanna stay homeless? Getting drunk and high are not gonna help. Quitting drinking and other shit like meth is fucking hard man. Try not to start

MAKE HOMELESS FRIENDS This one you got to be carefull. The guy you're sharing a drink with today might steal or stab you the next. Way too many people on the street with mental problems. But it can fill that need to human companionship. Heck might even get you some sex that enjoyable. We'd both had some tech to talk to each other. So if i found somewhere that was giving away free food I'd message him "James, The church on Boulder drive is having a supper for the homeless, Fucking good food man, come on by." Or I'd get messages from him like "You know that lil donut place downtown? They burned a shit ton of bagels and the lady inside gave um all to me man. Meet me downtown buddy let's eat." This is the best. I mean if you can find a comrade your in good shape.
