Would it be possible to have a /jew/ food thread?
Maybe if enough content got posted it could become a sticky.


I love tune/pasta bake, tuna is super cheap and great for you and your brain function.

I like putting cheese slices on a ¢99 bag of Doritos as a nice nacho appetizer before I eat a ¢99 Banquet TV dinner or buttered egg noodles with salt and pepper. Hell, hard boiled eggs can be made into deviled eggs or egg salad. Eat egg salad with Doritos like normal chips and dip. Get creative!

How does one make counterfeit dollars? My buddy did it, back when I wasn't interested in knowing it, but he died back in 2010.

I don't want to make big bills since they catch on to that quick. Just small bills, like 1s and 5s. There was also someone counterfeiting 20s in the area so I'd be waiting and using different bills anyways. A basic run through of how to do it would be nice. It'd help me out a lot.

Wash the singles and print 10s. Don't be too greedy. And never spend them alone, three fakes looks bad, one fake and two real is plausible (if you‘re caught).

Fraud is probably higher return for lower risk anyway.

Dude they will even thumbprint money to find you. And it costs a lot to invest in legit equipment. You can't use an inkjet because they give off a pattern that can be traced. Most printers don't allow you to print bills but you could get around that. However, the risk to reward ratio is way too fucking high. I've never encountered a good enough fake that you couldn't tell upon sight.

Not just inkjets, all color printers sold in the US are required to print a pattern. Inkjet, laser, copier, all print a pattern that can be traced back to that individual printer, and the authorities use sales records (manufacturer to distributor to store to owner) to track down the current owner.

What I thought about doing was buying a color printer from a equipment liquidator, basically company that buys equipment from failed businesses then sells to anyone who shows up with money. Pay cash and go a place that doesn't require ID (some do, some don't).

My problem is I moved so and have no idea where the liquidators are here, or even if there are any. The ones I went to (for legitimate needs of my employer at the time) bought their stock from dozens of states.

/jew/, I have free utilities at my pad. Is there anyway I can take advantage of this while it lasts? Can I bottle up my power like piss and sell it for later? Bitcoin mining?

Isn't it a bit late to be doing bitcoin mining as the difficulty of mining blocks is proportional to the power being put towards mining? To make any sort of income you need to build a rig specifically for mining with multiple graphics cards

You only need special hardware if you're paying for electricity. If you can find a group with a low work requirement, you can make a little bit with bitcoin mining.

You can also look at altcoins who are smaller and you might be able to slip under the minimum with a general use computer.

Kind of related topic, at my new job I'm in control of a sparsely used dumpster. Anyone have experience cancelling their garbage collection? Does the city/state get on you about that?

I witnessed a show where families used coupons to reduce their checkout bills by ridiculous amounts.
A girl was shopping for eligible items, they weren't very useful and she was getting huge quantities. The final bill was $680 with all her coupons she reduced it to $27. For the quantity of crap she had that's outrageous, she could start her own shop.

How did she get those coupons? Aren't they one per customer or something? If you know tell me of the weirding ways of the coupon clippers.

When I worked at Jewel, I actually saw a person start making money with the coupons she used. Which meant the manager came and asked her to leave. So don't go over board with it.

You can use a limit of usually 10 dollars off and then the cashier will have to manually allow it. I remember there used to be coupon generator threads on /b/ but then they died out. Don't know why I miss those.

I'm finally moving out! I paid a $100 in pre-bond, and will pay the other 180$ (for a total 280 in bond of 2 weeks) on Tuesday when I move in. Finally! Argh, so excited. Just kinda suprised the place is so cheap.

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).

Aw, this board is the epitome of what I do. I'll walk through my lifestyle. I've tried many things and kept only the things that have saved me money in the end. I don't care how others judge me, so I've taken things to the next level of weird:

My main motto in life when it comes to managing money is "Time is money". So even if I'm not at work, "chores" and other crap to me is considered work, or rather, unpaid work. So I deliberately avoid situations in which I'm forced to do more work than necessary (that is, by doing things the easier way).

1) I have carefully selected a place for me to live. One which is < 10 minute walking distance to my place of work. My job is perfect for me because I don't really interact with people much and I am sort of left to do my own thing (parcel courier). This ensures my employment because I cannot last 2 months in a customer service/work-with-others workplace without getting fired.

Also, note that this came first before everything else because it is top priority if you're looking to save money.


2) As a result, I no longer necessitate a motor vehicle. - $200 / 3 months for insurance, and $60/month for gas. And additional upkeep and maintenance expenses.


3) Rent your parking space out. +$50/month for me.

Depends on what sort of comfort you're referring to. Obviously not being stabbed in the feet by needles or anything. But generally if its uncomfortable (like sleeping on a massage table), you will adapt and over time think nothing of it. It's the adjustment there and letting your body adapt to the changes that might be the hard part.

I don't really find sentimental value in collectibles or physical objects, so maybe that just depends on the person. If you lack objects that you depend on (not need), you will always adapt to your current circumstances without them and put that want behind you. Or at least for me. To find comfort in nostalgic objects and such is like a fixation on something that the mind always wants. Take that fixation towards learning or something. I take solace in my online lectures on math and physics.

But, OP, what's your point in life? Being frugal is a virtue, yes, but in this summary you've not mentioned why you're saving this money, and you've not mentioned any sort of social interaction.

Don't you have friends that come over and question why you've plastic wrapped your house and are collecting lumber scraps, etc.?

Saving money has no purpose of itself. Are you planning on buying a sailboat and island hopping the Caribbean? Why do you so desperately need to save every cent?

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.

I've seen a couple of international threads in there, but not a South American one, so I'm opening it with the hope that there's someone out there that knows a few tricks to make it easier to live in here with the whole inflation thing and such.
I in particular happen to be Argentinian, and my main issues are that I've been using the same pair of shoes for the last year, can't afford to take a bus in one of the bigger cities in the world, and (what happens to be way more relevant than the previous statements) my computer is about to crash in no time and I need to get one soon. Of course this is an open thread and you can discuss or ask whatever on earth you think is remotely relevant or constructive.
Also, clouds. They are beautiful and they are free.

Buying stocks is always good for inflation. The price of raw materials go up, prices of goods go up, stocks go up to meet that sweet spot anyway.
If you can't transfer money abroad then buying physical, certificated gold would be good. Gold is still a worse investment in the long run because it doesn't produce anything and just actually costs to store.

Long story short I might be getting an internship for a company in London, England over the Christmas holidays. I'm more in it for the work experience and resume than the money, but it's only a two-week placement and I've got to get there from Toronto. How can I do this without losing hundreds of dollars?
