I'm having no luck finding the thread through advanced search, I can't really remember what the title was. It was about the ways people had gotten by on little to no money in the past. Anyone know the thread I'm talking about?

    Will it be about a movie?

    Will it be about the gays?

    Will it be about dancing bears?

    Will it just be locked?

    Oooh it's like modelling clay right now, I can't wait to see!

    WHAT SHALL BECOME OF THIS THREAD?!

    what you do
    is order some chinese take out, no more than about $10, don't worry about tip
    when the little guy comes to your door, you tell him/her oh hey, let me get your tip from the kitchen, come on in
    when they suspect nothing, bash the little fucker over the head with a waffle iron, cut them into little pieces and keep them in your refrigerator

    you got chinese food for a week

    I think we're thinking of a different thread. The one I'm thinking of had recipes and stuff too, but it was also full of tales of how people got by on little to no money.

    For instance, I remember at one point people talking about the key being sleeping a lot when you have little money to eat on.

    Fuck that thread, we got a new one going here.

    Ok, so after 4 years of soul-crushing servitude at a restaurant, I get layed off. I was the most well-payed person there. Now it's Christmas time and I've gone from being well off to shit poor in a month. Here is what I've learned.


    Any food is cheaper if you cook it your damn self.
    Giftcards are the most easily re-gifted item ever.
    Old friends who are doing better than you will take pity on you and buy you beer.
    Cheap beer gets you just as drunk as microbrew.
    Change has value when accumulated.
    You only need 3 meals a day if most of your day is spent doing anything substantial. I think of it as TV hibernation.
    Bars will give most people free beer in exchange for playing music at said bar. You don't really even have to be good.

    Add your own bullets to those points. I'm too broke for any.

    And you don't always have to make stuff 100% yourself. You can probably grab a box of pancake mix that'll last a month for $1 at the grocery store.
