Poor thread

Who here is low income and what do you do to save money? So far I do these things to save money

steal condiments from fast food restaurants
steal toilet paper and napkins from restaurants and stores
only eat eggs and rice and potatoes with a multivitamin and sometimes eat packets of condiments
buy clothes and shoes from second hand stores
only use minimal amounts of soap and toothpaste
never go out to do anything "fun"
ride my bicycle or walk instead of driving
use coupons and only shop when there is deals

anything else I can do to save money?

Kill yourself.
Then you wouldn't need to spend any money at all.

just curious OP, where are you posting this from.

becuase if you are paying for n internet connection.
you should just cancel it and start shitposting during library hours.

that'll give you at least 20 bucks a month to go out.

Nah man, it's easy enough. Last year I was sell stuff on Craigslist to make rent poor, then I started browsing here because I wanted to start a coffee shop, and found out that wasn't viable quite yet. So I started saving my change for an investment fund. Ended up with about $300 when it was all done, and used that to start trading penny stocks. Now I have 50k in my bank account and another 5k in trading funds, and I make rent every couple days. Plan is to build enough money to start the coffee shop and start investing in real stocks.

you could suck pickles for nickles.

I don't understand why poor people exist though.

Even if you're family is poor and you start with zero capital, you can still network and go to school. Develop skills and show your labor is valuable. And then you are no longer poor.

Yeah. To be fair it's about 25% research and the rest luck, but it can happen. Capital Gains tax is 15% at most, so yeah I declare quarterly.

300 to 50k from penny stocks
This stinks
That's over 16,000% return, fucking unheard of, especially in bulletin board crap unless you're into some illegal shit

I went all in often, reinvested all my gains, and have nothing to do but day trade anymore. It's not just day trading though, sometimes I held a bit longer and got lucky with a gain.

Regrow: Lettuce, green onion, carrots, etc
Hunt: High initial cost but it makes meats cost a dollar per pound
Fish: Basic pole, bobber, hook, and worms is all you need and you can catch fish year round

If not then you need to work in a local restaurant so you can get free food.
