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

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.

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 have an appointment to get some tests done to prove i have ADHD and autism. (I was diagnosed with ADHD as a child but not autism.) so i can get SSI. Now, i know its not a popular thing, but how do i prove i have autism? Im socially retarded, that much is clear to me, but how do i prove that? Do i just start throwing up as soon as i try communicating with another human? I don't want to work, thats my dream. People are always going on about following your dream. I dont need moralists and baby boomers who have "strong" work ethics and ideas telling me what for.

Modern Mom 17/03/04(Sat)01:13 No. 2971 ID: 2140d8

I got tested by psychiatrists when I was a teenager and I was diagnosed with Aspergers. I used this to my advantage and got into SSI, made a living as a shut in in my own apartment for years. Eventually I was unable to afford an apartment because of rent prices increasing and I don't have a way to make more money now. Eventually you're gonna reach a point where you need more money. You need to find an extra source of income. You can't just live off of SSI. I did that for along time and I'm regretting it.

Get yourself a pressure cooker. With it you can save on energy and food costs.
Faster cooking time = Less energy spent
Legumes and cheap meat cooks faster = cheaper food
Seriously, you can buy the most crappy cuts with most connective tissue and the pressure cooker will dissolve all that and you end up with delicious meat. Also cooking beans for example is a lot less hassle when you don't have to cook it for hours and hours.
Your relative probably has one somewhere that is useless to them lying around. They used to be a fad .

They can also be used to make bombs also, so that's pretty handy.

NEGATIVE.
You want a crock pot. Its way safer, and low stream of energy used. Plus coming home to a hot, cooked meal is awesome are waking up to warm breakfast oatmeal. etc.
So easy to prepare.

Slow cookers are so fucking important anon.
I mostly eat stew and soup. And eggs for breakfast. Easy, cheap. Leave it plugged in on low, go to work, come home and eat right away.

If they happen leave a box of something big empty on the floor... grab it.. fill it up with all the small things you want.. and pack it tight.

High risk, but huge reward.

Yes, you either pay for whatever the big box item is.. or you run with this box OUT THE BACK, not the front. but inside you packed it with stuff to make it worth your while. Go towards the hardware section.. clear pack tape the box. Go pay. A cart helps.

Many stores, the back exit is unwatched.. and if anyone stops you.. "my mom is bringing the car around for a pick up." etc.

If you have one near you, this is a place to pay hundreds of dollars less for groceries. If you buy the right items, thy're even healthy.

I've learned over the years that you don't actually sace money at these type of shops. Whathever is cheaper, is cheaper for a reason. Buy some yogourt there, it's gonna be 50 yoghurt mixed with water and starch. Does it count as cheaper to you ? I guess that depends how you view it. I'd rarher be eating reak stuff. I'd rather eat a smaller portion of a good sausage, then, filling on bread, than earing a shit one that's bot even meat. When you account for the shitty quality of the producks, by rank, ir's only a few cents cheaper tjan another shop, and those few cents are bot worth the time I waste there, the tereible service and dirty area, and dealing with poor, rude people.

Tired of spending money for pay TV?
A good old roof antenna will give you high definition broadcasts, up to 100 channels in some markets. A converter box can be used for older TV compatibility, $25-40

tvfool.com, antennaweb.org, rabbitears.info



There is also free satellite TV available, mostly international broadcasting but there's some cool stuff out there too.
Search for "FTA Satellite". A low cost fixed dish can run you $200-300 if you install it yourself. Ku-band (small dish) has a lot, C-band (large dish) has even more.

No monthly fees at all, for the price of 2 months of Direct or Dish you can get the equipment for free TV for life.

Watching tv is a waste of precious time though, and that's one commodity that is very limited. It's mostly ads and shows you don't care about anyhow, why not just torrent whatever you DO really want to watch, or just read the synopsis of it on wikipedia, imdb?

Modern Mom 17/03/20(Mon)07:55 No. 2978 ID: 193bde

1 lookup the frequencies you are interested in in your area.
2 check out the measurements for a yagi antenna on said frequency
3 build said antenna, which is cheap and very easy if youre willing to pay attention for about 10 minutes, you will need a few lenghs of copper wire and some wood or anything non conductive to hold them.


>>
Modern Mom 17/03/20(Mon)08:46 No. 2979 ID: 193bde

You may also want to look into software-defined radios and how to get TV from them, an rtl2832u dongle is about 7.50$US.

A yagi is has
-a driven element, meaning a U shaped wire, on end connected to the center wire on the coax, the other end conneted to the outer layer IE ground.
-a few parasitic elements, meaning lengths of metal measured to be resonant at the frequency you are interested in, the lengh and spacing in between each element is speficic to the frequency range you want, use online calculators or whatever design you find on the interwebs.
-one or several reflecting elements, meaning lenghs of wire larger than the others, so on so forth.

Onward, lad.
To glory

How it works: If you own a lot of earrings, they can easily get lost or disorganized. Pinterest and other websites have a lot of ideas to help, from hanging them on cheese graters or sports rackets to replacing glass in a picture frame with wire mesh.

How it actually worked: I didn't have a cheese grater or tennis racket to spare, nor the time to measure and tack mesh over a picture frame. So I started looking around the house for other candidates. I had a mesh magazine holder that held glossies from 2011. Bingo.

Life changing?: Yes. Not only did I recycle the magazines, but I also upcycled the office supply into something more functional. I put the pairs of earrings I had on one side, and single earrings on the other side, in case I find their matches. I ended up filling the inside with my bangle bracelets so I got double storage with one item.
