What would be the best long term investment on soap? Liquid soap or a bar of soap?

I feel that sometimes, liquid soap would mean less loss on the product of the said bottle of soap that you'd buy at the store versus a single bar of soap that would degrade in the shower with usage breaking into bits.

I still wonder what purchase would be the cheapest I could stretch the most considering a daily shower for a measure of usage?

this is not expensive at all it's like fucking $2/lb. 1 lb of NaOH with leftover lard or bacon grease makes 12 lbs of soap

12 fucking pounds of soap for only 2 dollars worth of sodium hydroxide made with used animal fats you would have dumped into the trash can

I steal my soap from hotels, small hand towels, napkins and ketchup from restaurants.

Ok, I have a bit of an unusual problem.

My grandmother died a year ago and left behind a fuckload of shitty furniture. I want to help my parents sell it because they effectively became poorfags sponsoring my education.

Now, this would usually be no problem except the fact that they live in a shitty 2nd world Eastern European country, and in a small(15k residents) town no less. A garage sale, or a Craigslist ad or really anything of the sort is not an option here.

So what the fuck do I do? I doubt that anyone here has experience with this kind of issue, so maybe just help me brainstrom one up? I really want to help my old folks, but can't do so financially because of being stuck in the post-bachelors limbo.

That's a good idea. If by "shitty," OP means "old" and/or "rustic" and/or "hand-crafted" he should sell them on e-bay as such. Clean em up, take some flattering picks, and list them for more than he thinks they're worth. Should keep in mind that many people subconsciously associate a higher price with higher quality/value. Could also market to wealthy Western Europeans, not just Americans

Modern Mom 18/11/27(Tue)05:11 No. 3248 ID: b2d62b

Clean it yes, absolutely. But if it needs refinshing-do NOT do it yourslef, let the final buyer do it. Refinishing furniture kills value.

Modern Mom 20/12/12(Sat)15:06 No. 3488 ID: 6e8930

Clean the furniture
Take flattering pics
Sell it on eBay with buzzwords like “rustic” “vintage” “handcrafted”
And to appeal to the nerds In America “soviet era”
If that fails, just lie

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).

What is the meaning of life if you are not exceptional in any way, if you do not look exceptional, if you do not have exceptional talent, if you were not born in a unique place, you don't have any unique skills, and you don't have a bigger goal in life?

>if you do not look exceptional
Then you look to all the ugly mother fuckers that we idolize.

>if you do not have exceptional talent
Talent is hindsight. I never had a "talent" until I was good at something. Then all of the sudden everyone saw that I had "talent" or I was just lucky because I had "talent."

>if you were not born in a unique place
The fuck does this mean? Like, I know my shit is a "lol pull yourself up by your own bootstraps" bullshit but what does a unique place have anything to do with purpose? Everywhere is pretty unique. That's why people recommend traveling the world; to experience the different things the world has to offer. I legitimately do not know and would like someone to expand on it.

>you don't have any unique skills
Then you must learn a unique skill.

>you don't have a bigger goal in life
Then you must set yourself goal.

if you dont have a bigger goal in life then whats the problem? a safe bet though for a meaningful existence is to get married and have kids. at least that way you get the responsibility to take care of people and plus, it adds at least 18 years to your obligation to society. obviously i get its probably hard to settle down with a good woman, but if youve got nothing else going on i would suggest focusing your energy towards that. and theres always room for improvement in that system. dont look good? get /fit/. arent educated? start easy by watching documentaries. dont give up anon!

Hello friends. I'm 18 years old and I'm getting kicked out of the house this summer.

I was just wondering if you guys had some tips on how should i stock up for this and what to do to prepare.

I live in Canada, I have about $3k saved up. I won't be finished highschool until middle of next year at best.

I was also thinking about joining the Canadian Forces.

So basically any Canadians here that know how to live cheaply or any sort of tricks I should know for living by myself?

Thanks guys.

just realize they'll treat you like shit during training to try to make you quit
so if you cant suck up anything life will throw at you, then you arent ready for the military

Army is good if you can just tough it out. They might even pay for a degree. If it's not for you nbd, but if you can do it you dont have to worry about money.
For food, only or mostly spend money on red meat, eggs, fish. Anything else is not important. Look up sv3rige on youtube lol
Have a plan for the future, some decent job somehow within a few years. DONT do a liberal arts degree.

10k, national coin (around 166,66 u$s). been doing unregistered work, the paycheck is a little bit below what a registered part time worker gets
can't buy much with it, it seems too little to invest, but I want more. luckily I still live with my parents, so I don't have to pay anything outside of what I want to

that makes sense. I'm not a big spender, and I wanna save up money anyways. after a couple of months, once I swell up my savings, I'll see what I can do with them
any particular advice? I was planning on buying some u $s off the table for cheap and either sell them high (I'm pretty sure that the price will increase) or set up a time deposit in a bank

Modern Mom 20/03/13(Fri)09:23 No. 3395 ID: 42ad2b

Timing the market (buy low, sell high) is really just gambling, anon. First savings goal should be to have enough cash on hand so that you are always liquid. Normally people recommend 2-3 months worth of expenses, but it depends on your risk, and could be way higher. This prevents you from having to make poor choices due to unforseen circumstances (fired, car breaks, etc). Once you have this in place, you can start to worry about what’s next.

Modern Mom 20/05/09(Sat)04:15 No. 3412 ID: ff58dc

Not to mention everyone who actually makes any money off of any sort of futures (stocks, forex trading, whatever) does it with computers. Programs that cost tons of money as a startup cost, analyze millions of lines of statistics sourced from all over the world at all times, and make thousands of trades per second.

The days where a normal fuck could make any money at all playing futures just by looking up numbers in his daily newspaper and making smart choices died out 30 years ago. The only people doing it now are already millionaires because they are the only ones that have the technology.

>Normally people recommend 2-3 months worth of expenses
Given the events of the last two months, this rings truer than ever.

Warning this is illegal but you can easily pull this off if you keep your mouth shut.

Go to a dollar store, they usually have a prepaid card you can put up to like 500 and the card is like a dollar. You buy one and put about 10 or 15. you take the card to a gas station and make sure its busy. Use the card as credit. Fill up your tank pass the amount you put in there. Leave the gas station and cut the card.
