Re: eBay trick for clothes shopping

I'm seriously jealous of your sewing and alteration skills, my last shirt-to-dress project turned out rather unsatisfying...
Any tips for a novice in sewing? Most of the blogs etc I found were mostly concerned with sewing from new fabrics.

Haybox - Bacteria?

I'm seriously lusting after a SlowCooker right now, as cooking peas on a weekday night is no fun. But due to several reasons (electricity use, one thing taking space, fear of fire) I'm against buying one. But I do have a pressure cooker and an old sleeping bag, so I could build an quasi-haybox. I'm ...

Re: Negative sentiment in society against living frugally in Germany (Austria, Swiss)

Actually i think it's starting to change... You know, within the last month there were three articles of fire in mainstream media (focus, welt and bento i think), while last year we had none? And you start to meet fire-interested people on parties etc. (mostly digital nomads/fire in asia-types) I gu...

Re: Wealth, money, numbers

*The reason why many children only perform household chores grudgingly is that they are usually offered little autonomy and poor motivation "...because you are a member of this family. That's why!" Who wouldn't rebel against being bottom caste worker in a communist system? That's quite an...

Re: Intel bugs and older tablet

Well, I definitely won't buy an apple or Windows device. And basically, don't all the devices that are sold at the moment suffer from the Spectre bug? I thought about putting lineageos on my tablet, but my device is not supported. With a normal Linux I wouldn't be able to use my apps, so also a no-n...

Intel bugs and older tablet

I have an older tablet, which still works fine for me, but unfortunately the manufacturer/distributor stopped sending out security updates mid-2015. Didn't bug me too much, but with the Intel bugs Meltdown and Spectre my opinion has changed. Does anybody have a similiar problem and any ideas how to ...

I do feel sorry for you, but hey, you don't have to stay there. You can always leave. What about migrating to the Netherlands?

Re: Another Euopean says Hello!

Thanks for the welcome! Yes, I guess I'm quite frugal nowadays, but I think I've always been. I had quite little money during studying so I'm well trained. My biggest expenses at the moment (excluding rent and health insurance) are socialising and travel/trips, but they bring me so much joy that I g...
