 No.193381

I'm 35 and have never worked a day in my life. Nor do I intend to, despite being overly qualified. Spend my whole day playing old vidya and reading manga.
I've only had 2 shirts, 2 pairs of pants and 2 pairs of shoes for the past 10 years, which I wash alternatively.

Modest inheritance + don't spend too much. 50€ a month in food give or take, 10-20 running water, 15 internet. Thank fuck I don't pay for energy, I bought solar panels and batteries a long time ago.
I don't eat much because I have my sugar spikes under control and am not too tall. Most days I just eat a few eggs and some veggies. I try not to overexercise in order to eat less, too.
24 eggs = 4 euro here -> I eat 150 eggs a month, which means I spend 25 euro in eggs, that's half my protein
chickpeas are 2 eur a kilo, I eat 3 kilos a month, which means I spend 6 euros on chickpeas
This with olive oil is over half my calories and all of my protein, and I still have around 15 euros to spare on leafy greens and nuts every now and then, when they're cheap because they're about to go bad. When I do eat meat I spend a bit more than 50 though, but I eat it rarely.

I have an old PC, I only play old vidya, But I try to get as much out of them as possible.
Same few games for ages:
Fallout New vegas
TES: Morrowind and Oblivion
Rimworld
Facotrio
Project Zomboid
Darkest Dungeon
Hollow Knight
M&B: Warband + mods
Kenshi
and a bunch of retro shooters like DOOM
I'm technically a leech, only my parents aren't alive. I just don't spend much. Internet is a cheap source of entertainment, so is hiking every now and then.
My shedule: Steady sleeping schedule, exercise every morning, sunbathe every afternoon, play in between, hike on weekends. Life is good.

I rolled the dice for potential replies to a thread made by a comfy NEET when the appear, and the numbers gave me the following preorchestrated reply:

Start livestreaming Roblox shenanigans and make a bunch of ad money

Will you listen to the dice?

Same + didn't bother with education. Art hobbies are an infinite well of passing time with so many avenues of depth, growth and frustration (very important to include some frustration in your activities) despite requiring very little in resources. If you work digitally you can simply steal the software.
Doing very well beyond that wiz. With a bit of circumstantial luck, wealth is found effortlessly by having little need more than by having lots of money.

Good job. Although I currently manage to live like a king thanks to the hard work of my benefactor (my dear okaa-sama) I have often thought that the unique vocation of a middle class NEET requires one to live frugally eventually. When I am required to pay for my own groceries the best I have found is $1 cans of tuna and pasta is also cheap, although I am sure that even that is too extravagent and I'd like to see if I could find something cheaper. It might also be worth it to imitate the ways of the ascetics of old, not for any religious reasons but purely for the practical purpose of cutting down on expenses.

 No.193408

I’m also 29yo neet who have never worked a single day in his life. I dread for my future because other than potential rent income from some house I will be dirt poor. I will go as neet as much as I could go because I’m a retard and incapable of work. But even if I could make a stable neet life I just don’t wanna live after my age 40, old age will absolutely suck as single man.

Potatoes are slightly cheaper than rice I find, just because the carbs take longer to burn.

The real strategy guide to NEETbux living is you talk to all the butcheries and supermarkets around town and organize a time to buy their excess meat they're about to throw out. Meat is the only expensive thing, if you solve this you've solved the NEETbux poverty issue.

Organ meats are extremely underrated and you should add them to your diet.

He comes from a long lineage of kings and queens and other royalty.

my clothes are pretty old too, the irony is that they were made for manual labour. browse military gear shops and buy hiking footwear, one pair of boots and a coat will last you a good decade maybe more. crabs go through many brands and overpay for the potato sack they got on yet I wear the same old clothes with no sign of tear

How long do you think such luxurious lifestyle will continue? What will you do when things in your house will start to break? Eventually you might need to go to a dentist or deal with other medical issue, all of this will suck allot of money and you'll end a broke bitch sooner then you might think. I advise to train some useful skill rather than wasting time on video games because living frugally will only postpone a bit the inevitable.

What's the point? I used to like the notion of being a researcher, but it's completely kiked. At least 50% of papers are just plain wrong.

I work in a warehouse and it may be the easiest and best warehouse job a formerly 15 year neet could ever hope for.
I work in the office typing in orders and printing labels to give to the guy who works in the warehouse who retrieves and wraps the stock. No hard labor on my part. Only other guy working there is the boss who spends all day on the phone. I live 10 minutes away and the last in the warehouse gives me a lift to and from work every day. On days he's not in, like this week because he's at army training, the boss himself does the labor and drives me to and from work. And in September he will let me work part time while I do my degree. It is too good to be true but I miss having free time.

Thanks for the thread, it was inspirational. I would enjoy a similar lifestyle if / when I eventually become NEET. Currently working a useless job I don't like and only do for the money. Which I don't even need that bad, because I lucked out on a risky investment and thus have more savings than most people twice my age. I'm also pretty frugal and could afford to eat with 100€ or less a month.
So far I've just been too cowardly to assert myself and quit my job. Doing so might block me from working in the field again if I ever needed a job. But I could probably find some other employment if needed. I also have a certain degree.

Good thread.

Always remember minimizing your cost is almost always far more easy than increasing your income. If you own a home/live with your parents you can live with roughly 1000$ a month at the very most, this would include food,gas,basic healthcare insurance. In some rural places you can even live with 500$-750$ including rent. I know someone who was spending about 7k a year.
Changing your lifestyle can also benefit you financially, eating healthy and cooking your own meals tend to be less expensive than chugging in restaurants or even buying fast food.
Being minimalist gives you freedom and flexibility plus you don't worry about many problems that emerge with too much stuff.
Any wizard who has some bit of sense to himself should also learn how to pirate. Do not pay for entertainment unless it is absolutely necessary. Every movie and tv show can be found online. Most books and almost all comics can be found online if you dig some russian websites and telegram and torrents. Video games are a given but I even start to play board games on VASSAL which is basically an emulator for hex and counter games. Rather not pay 75$ for some niche ww2 simulationist game.
