Imagine reading all of that text

>you had the opportunity to live for dirt cheap

>>50769042
Buzzcuts are great but if you want more length you can use a flowbee.
>>
>>50769136
I own clippers for my beard but not sure how to trim my hair myself without looking retarded. Is it worth it to go full skinhead?
>>
>>50769016
Just work more hours. Working at McDonalds an extra hour a day will save you far more than trying to penny pinch
>>
>>50769204
This

It’s probably the best kept secret that as you earn more you’ll save more
>>
>>50769185
Depends on your face. I looked really dumb with it and I was secretly afraid people thought I was mentally retarded, so I stopped.

>sell your scissors, never cutting your hair saves barber and time cost
>walking is a perfect thing
>sell all gym equipment, only use monk like flexing of the muscles without any weights
>get hobbies that earn you money

>>
>>50769016
everything that can be quantified into numbers can be improved. do that with your diet. analyze what you can cut from your diet, what you can replace with a cheaper thing, what you can buy in bulk and have for a while, look out for sales, shower at the gym,
>>
>Take them up on huge discount promos!
for example got an email from a local retailer that for one weekend in March they were doing heavy 50% discounts, got myself Gucci sunglasses for 100 euros.
>buy in bulk
Normally it costs here 32 euros for a nice haircut in a nice place. They were selling packages of 28 scissor cuts for €600. Grabbed one now I'm set for 2 years regardless of inflation
>fight with asshole merchants
Always expect top service, when someone is an ass tell them to go fuck themselves and never set foot in their place. You will save a lot of money this way because soon only few places will be left but only nice places worth going
>>
>Get roommates. Rent is the biggest expense killer. With roommates, rent in Chicago for me was $323 and then $433. In Seattle, $500, and we had a whole house. When living in Portland, with roommates, $400.

>Whenever unemployed, even for a day, get food stamps. $200 a month and they only check to make sure your finances are the same every six months, and you can often get a full year from it. I've often made over $100k salary while still on food stamps, obtained in between jobs.

>Use the self checkout, but only scan 1/2 your food items

>Buy everything, except rare items, like maybe a spindle hard drive, used. Craigslist is cheaper than eBay. Goodwill is cheaper than Craigslist.

>Bike instead of a car, and if you have a car, do repairs/maintenance yourself. Also do bike repairs/maintenance yourself.

>Eat out seldom

>Buy everything with the intent to use it until it can no longer be used or repaired

>Pride minimalism and owning few things, as it makes you not want to buy much. Steal, whenever you can.

In germany you can work a small part time job tax-free as a secondary jncome (up to ~$600)

He's literally a consoomer what do you expect? I bet he actually can't fathom not spending money on useless shit for a few years and is coping hard. He's got all sorts of posts about nintendo, vidoe games, card games and other children's toys.
>>
>>50769016
retardation, keep that shit out of here, get!
>>
>>50769016
Don't buy stupid stuff you don't need, rarely go out to eat food.

Only buy for others, and do not sign up for ANY subscriptions.

>>50769452
Of course hes retarded, he thinks living in a chinese apartment and eating lentins is an "priviliged opportunity"

going for a run, going to the beach, sports with someone, sculpture or some art with shit you find on the garbage bin, finding shit on a garbage bin, play chess on the park with the old niggers, public masturbation, go hit on girls on a public space and then rape them, etc
>>
>>50769481
Well yeah but the amount of cope made me laugh and then it turns out he's a massive consoomer. The posts the other guy made were completely reasonable and anyone could do it. I don't understand why the posts were upvoted the way they were. Maybe he got his friends to like his post and downvote the other guy's post.
>>
>>50769016
Just following a list of frugal things to do won‘t get you very far. I recommend reading „Early Retirement Extreme: A Philosophical and Practical Guide to Financial Independence“. It teaches the necessary mindset.

youve never been to reddit?

>>50769016
Binge speed 3 months every year for maximum savings on food. Especially good for fatties that stuff their face with shit all the time
>>
Don't simp for women, masturbate instead, this will save you potentially hundreds of thousands of dollars.
>>
>>50769045
It's a pretty funny comment chain. You're missing out on some prime redditor seethe and a very funny closing statement by the almost self aware npc.
>>
>>50769331
Lmao the food stamps is such a scum bag move. You hit up food banks too?
>>
>>50769540
Poor people all want to be told it isn't there fault. They forget if everyone was rich it wouldn't even be a desirable thing.
>>
>>50769567
No I don't tend to go on reddit much. Most of it just seems to be an endless stream of really unfunny memes

>what are you tips for minimal living so I can achieve wealth?
If expenses (rent, utilities, food and transportation) are over 50% of your income you are living beyond your means. If rent is more than 1/4 of your income either move back with your parents or live with as many roommates as necessary to keep it there. You literally don't need any more advice than this to make it.
>>
>>50769241
I like the cut of your jib, sir!
>>
>>50769016
The big 3 are living at home as much as possible, buying a cheap phone and phone plan (I pay $20/mo with a $100 phone, more than 1/4th the average plan). And food.

You don't have to fall for the cook your own food meme either, keep in mind there's time cost. You need to not only save money, but tune as well. Get sub sandwiches from the grocery store and slice them up into sections. You know the ones I'm talking about, the big bastards you can buy for like $5 and eat on for multiple days. Find foods like that and cut down on snacks. Food is the biggest expense next to renting. Not buying a new car should be a no brainer

Kek stupid fucking reddit nigger cattle. Imagine coping that much with your terrible life decisions

>>50770315
To be fair /biz/ is also mostly an endless stream of shitty memes but at least I can call people fags without getting banned
>>
Avoid debt. College is a scam. New cars are a joke. The only thing you should even consider going into any debt over is a house. Cause least the house value will increase. The only way to get ahead is if you don't blow more than you make a month. Keep an emergency fund, 3 months at minimum worth of expense money. You'll be glad you have it when "shat happens". You can live cheap without looking like your a cheap bum if you do it right. When opportunity knocks, take advantage. (other words; housing market tanks, that cash in the bank will come in handy for a down payment and your monthly payment will be low as hell)
>>
>>50770662
Just like when everyone was leaving the job market and people where tossing money at people just to interview. Take advantage. Hell you (job seeker) had the leverage. You could land a 2nd gig job making decent green with little effort.
>>
>imagine telling poor people it’s their fault they’re poor >:(
So it turns out you don’t actually have to remain poor. It’s up to you how bad you want to change your financial status and what you’re willing to do to make it happen.
There’s so many stories of immigrants coming to the US from shitholes in Eastern Europe or Asia and crushing it because they were willing to do whatever it takes.
>>50769045
Bro I already know what it says and I still read it all again
>>
>>50769933
The government steals from every cent you make you are a faggot nigger cattle if you feel bad getting something you paid for.
>>
>>50769552
You can only save so much. If you make $25k a year after taxes you still can only max save $25k a year and that’s with a lot of effort. If you earn $100k/year after tax it’s much easier to save. Getting expenses down is important but getting income up is even more important.

>>50770519
Just get a rice cooker and cook rice/beans or rice/lentils in it. I cook wheatberries/beans because it's high protein content. I eat those as my staple and then eat meat alongside it, with some veggies.
>>
>>50769016
Why the fuck would you post this Reddit trash here?
It’s not worth it to be frugal. Much better off working/investing more money.
>>
>>50769331
This thread is how to be frugal, not how to be a nigger.
>>
>>50769767
These whole delivery gigs are second to slavery anon, i think there are better jobs out there, the only good thing about those gigs is theyre easy to get into and somewhat flexible

I worked online gigs for a while, made some good money from home, but theyre project based and never run long sadly, checkout appen, its a kike company but can be profitable if youre lucky

Metal detecting

Buy used detector+pinpointer and shovel for 300 bucks and start searching at playgrounds to find some coins. If in europe search around castles for older and valuable/interesting stuff.

You should always focus on making money, not saving money.

Biggest thing you can do is simply cut all advertising out of your life. A step beyond is all broadcast media (it's all propaganda/advertising at its base, read The Last Psychiatrist), but definitely install adblock and change the channel when ads come on for radio/tv.

Once you're not being brainwashed into wanting to buy shit all the time, it's a lot easier to save money.

Author? All i find is a blogpost

>>50773383
He had a blog and stopped writing after he got doxxed (he's an actual psychiatrist and they have particular rules about public writing).

He recently wrote a book under the pseudonym Edward Teach called "Sadly, Porn", but the blog is what you should read relevant to this thread.
