Remove Image Backgrounds Free & Fast - Background Burner - Bonanza Sell Everything — What I Learned Today It was a dream opportunity. In March 2013, my co-founder and I agreed to join MetaLab. I would be joining as Director of Labs to head up a new product division. Before signing the deal, João (my co-founder in Obsorb) and I spent two months in Victoria. Once I knew I’d be joining MetaLab, I assumed I’d just pack up and take everything with me. With that shock, I started seriously playing with the idea of selling everything and buying new once I got there. The first few days back in St. This time, I would act on those feelings. “You are not your things.” “We buy things we don’t need with money we don’t have to impress people we don’t like.” - Tyler Durden, Fight Club Below are just a few of the benefits I discovered throughout the process.

Nadia Eghbal : How to Live in San Francisco on I recently came across Elizabeth Yin’s blog post pointing to growing examples of people living very happily and comfortably on small salaries and describing how she lived in Tokyo on less than $30K/year. I’ve had a similar experience here in San Francisco, where I’ve lived on <$20K/year in the 3 years I’ve been here. I feel very strongly that you don’t need a high income to live wherever you want, and Elizabeth’s post inspired me to finally write about it on here. I’ve done this the right way and the wrong way, so I thought I’d share both of my experiences. Read along and see whether you can guess why one was better than the other. The Wrong Way: 2010-2011 When I first moved to San Francisco in 2010, I came for a fellowship that paid a small stipend for the 9 month duration. Wanting to manage my stipend in the most efficient way possible, I created spreadsheets like this: And this: And micromanaged every spending category to the dollar to make sure I didn’t waste anything.

Make an Extra $50/Week Working for Amazon.com I recently read about a service Amazon provides called Mechanical Turk which intrigued me. Unlike other online sites that look for contract help, the Amazon Mechanical Turk service seemed to offer easy to accomplish tasks that could be completed by almost anyone with a computer. Little to no experience is required for many of the money earning assignments. And that sounded like something perfect for anyone who needed some help to make some cash in exchange for doing some work on a flexible schedule. The more I read about Mechanical Turk the more I came to believe this might be a good resource for my friends and readers to make some good side income with little effort. Now don’t get me wrong, when I talk about a side income, I’m thinking in the $50 a week range but hey, for anyone living on a tight budget, that kind of money means you can treat yourself to something nice instead of dipping into an already tight budget.

Libib.com - Home library management web app Sell Possessions Effectively Without Using eBay or Craigslist Selling a lot of things at once can be a daunting task, no matter how you choose to do it. Many like the yard sale route which always seems to be pretty effective. However, that option isn’t always available. Sometimes you don’t live in a prime location or it simply isn’t the season for yard sales. Yep — I created a blog dedicated to selling my possessions. eBay and Craigslist are both great for many different, specialized cases but they couldn’t handle everything I needed to sell. Here are some steps to help you set up your own: Decide what you want to sell as well as take photos of the items. That’s basically it. This is in no way a promotional stunt for my own blog so I won't be linking it here. Good luck with the digital yard sale!
