Could someone direct me to some quality VoIP services? I've had my cell phone turned off for over two months now. I don't plan on wasting $30 a month on calling and texting local numbers as well as family. Preferably looking for free services. I'm about to try to order a cheap headset with a mic as I don't have a microphone besides a Rockband mic that pretty much has stopped working.

A bit late, but look into running your own FreePBX box (free) and just paying for a SIP service like Flowroute (~1 cent/min). If you portforward, you can get phone calls wherever you can get internet

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.

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

Modern Mom 18/04/22(Sun)16:09 No. 3174 ID: b41c80

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.

I gave up work in a warehouse, because they were moving further from where I live. The commute would be just ridiculous, and the expenses - double, if not tripple! Being a drone is not OK in my book.
So I have a choice now - mooch off of girlfriends parents I live with OR take a part time job, as a "sanitary technician" in a local police station.
I want to know your opinion, everything really. Until this day it never occurred to me, that I would also have to clean shitters (which I'm quite fine with, and proficient, also). So lets hear it! Any cleaners here, part time workers or both?

Modern Mom 16/04/23(Sat)10:28 No. 2824 ID: 149c6f

You could at least start with the sanitation job. It's a local police station, not an international airport or a high-rise office building. Put in your hours, skate out of there once it's done, and save what you can.

Maybe hard work on your part will be recognized, who knows. Or just be a drone; it doesn't matter. My view is, any hour you spend earning a wage is an hour you've most likely avoided incurring debt. My current job started as what seemed to be a 2 week temp job helping a local company get their customer paperwork into appropriate files. Almost 4 years later I'm an indispensable cog in my national department. It pays shit (relatively), but the OT is constant and it allows me my freedom and my ability to afford my lifestyle, frugal as it is.

Mooching off your gf's parents is just a shitty and overall horrible idea. It will eventually sour all involved against you; first with the folks who lose financially, and then your gf, if you can't make anything of your loafing self. Nothing says turn-off quite like a date night postponed because you have to beg her dad for gas money.

Okay, I'm not a conspiracy theorist, but an opportunistic channer interested to see if the price of Air Malaysia had crashed after the disasters. Since they are more or less simply an unfortunate happenstance, the fundamental value of the airline shouldn't be any less and should correct itself over time. On this assumption, I started some research and you know what, the price of the airline crashed one week before the first plane went missing. What the fuck is going on? Check out the one year charts for their share price on any website and the dates for both disasters. Riddle me that.

If you cruise the local thrift stores, particularly the alternative ones, you can luck out and find some cheap beaten Demonia or something, Demonia quality is shit though. You will probably never find New Rocks like you have pictured for too cheap but you could be insanely lucky. TBH you should probably just get a used pair of English-made Docs that will last you forever if you take care of them, and go for a trad-goth look with thrift store black clothing.

I actually have one goth friend who lives in a crazy thrifty fashion, and one of her main sources of income is buying tons of shit from very cheap thrift stores and selling them to nicer exchange stores, but she knows that business.

>>2541
Same friend collects boots in any size she can, if it's too small you can cram a few different insoles in there and make them fit. You can also find nice insoles inside of shoes in thrift stores.

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):
