A new thought:
Perhaps better to adopt a ‘ghetto’ lifestyle than to strive to adopt for an Uber-fancy lifestyle.
1. Eat ghetto
Anti-whole foods living. Better to adopt an uber-ghetto lifestyle; eat sauerkraut from cans. Kale and Collard Greens from cans. Or bagged frozen kale and collard greens. No need for “fresh”.
2. Living like a baller on a budget.
Preference for cheaper cuts of meat. Fattier and cheaper. For example, fatty cuts of meat (pork ribs, pork belly) which you can get for around .99 cents a pound (if you go to the more ‘ghetto’ super markets or grocery stores).
3. Some life hacks
Some food hacks:
- Cut meat with scissors
- Super easy way to cook meat: Just toss it in a pan or cast iron skillet, and throw it in the oven (400 degrees) and just cook it until it is cooked.
- Use a crockpot. Just get a cheap one. Use this to cook pork shoulder loin roast or whatever.
4. Working out for free
The park! Find a heavy rock and toss it around. Do chinups on the bars. Or do muscle ups. Or do pull-ups on the rings.
Have fun and be creative. Also the good thing about the park — free entertainment via chatting with strangers.
5. Books for free
6. The best car is no car!
Not owning a car is the ultimate reverse flex. True richness is being so robust that you don’t need a car. Same goes with getting rid of your phone; the best phone is no phone. To reverse flex and tell people you don’t got a phone — the ultimate flex.
