I heard that Amazon takes a massive cut off what your profits. eBay takes about 10-15%, depending on the price.

If I were to start stealing things from stores to save money, how would I go about it? Related question: If I were to begin selling things I stole from stores, how would I go about it?

Anyone ever had luck lifting booze from Aus stores? Everything here has the cap tags

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.

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

Let's talk about ways to make cash online, it can really help out and once you get efficient with it and have a good group then you're golden.

I won't lie, I'd like to find a person or two from this board to be in a new group. You wouldn't believe how fast and simple things get when you get everyone working together well and can make the money on nearly autopilot, depending on what method you are using. Also tips and resources are always good.

Nice, I'm working on a new series and I'll need cover art done, I just have to finish it.

Since I'm here, I'll also update you folks on the progress, successes and failures I've experienced!

I was doing ghostwriting for a while, and I still do it from time to time, mostly when I need cash for something and I'm in between my own writing projects. I've made a decent amount with ghost writing (a bit over 1k) within a couple of months, which felt pretty good, I guess I'm at least decent at it, though each time I go back and read my stuff from 6 months ago I laugh and think "Did I REALLY write that?".

I used Odesk.com, which is now upwork,com, but i had a bunch of personal stuff happen and I lost some good clients sinc eI couldn't deliver, so my rating went from nearly perfect to like 3.5 or something, which sucks. I use guru.com as well, but I got jewed out of a 350$ book series when the client up and decided to take my books and her shekels, then run off to Jerusalem, but I'll just self publish the books myself. I put out a lot of free stuff on smashwords and I'm trying to find ways to reach more people, any help there would be great. So far I'm on literotica, amazon and smashwords, but I want to be more places if possible.

Again, thanks for the cover art contact! I will contact them and see if they are interested!

Jew on my friends!

I've tried so many things, affiliate marketing, livestreaming video games (twitch), youtubing (vlogging/gaming), writing, blogging (haven't tried ebooks on amazon, on a website or both yet which I will work on next most likely).

Creating an online store/business via shopify and Amway. So far not much success with anything, I get some money from referrals from affiliate marketing and supplement referrals I still get.

My twitch following is growing though slowly.

Hello everyone,

Recently, I've re-stumbled upon some great pieces of literature made by anarchists in the late 1960s.
Over half of it is about how to make explosives and drugs, but there a good few other pieces by them on how to live is a free "yippie".

This one is called "Fuck The System" and details on how to live completely free in New York City by finding free food, getting phone calls with those fake coin tricks, etc. However, this is all completely outdated.
https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Fuck_the_System

Could we make our own, modern, version?

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.

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?

Tiny house might be good if you got a little bit of money for lot rent and to pay someone to hook up your power cable, but you also need a decent sized vehicle to haul it

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).

There's tons of off grid videos on YouTube i would look at if I were you. Usually, you have to buy the land, however. If you do, buy it in a remote area where no one will make sure your stuff is up to "Code".

America, Europe, or Asia?
