I've been a neet for 4 years, and only recently has a family emergency made me terrified of how i've managed money up to this point. I've always lived in the moment and might have fucked myself over.

So, /hikki/:
-How do you split your neetbucks between savings and day to day living?
-How much recreationally spending money do you allow yourself?
-Do you worry about how easily any day an accident could ruin you? Any other advice?

1. I take money out of savings to live.
2. None.
3. All the time. Get a lot of money.

As far as I can tell, most NEETs don't even have any source of income, relying instead on family and or friends. If you actually have money flowing to your pockets with autismbux of whatever, you should definitely avoid trying to spend it on stupid bullshit and stock pennies to back your ass in cases like these. Why do you need to BUY these games, figures and manga or whatever you fucking want if things are available for free to you through the internet? Consumerism and NEETism aren't a good mix. And I'm not even talking about politics, just logic: If you don't have that much money to spend on goods, then you may as well DON'T because it's stupid. If you want to spend money on something, at least make sure you don't break yourself in the process and have something just in case.

Looking for a part time job to stash some cash is a good idea. I've heard of people here who work for a few months, save money, and then spend NEETing the rest of the year. Or something like that. Being a freeter is not that bad considering being a NEET and broke/homeless isn't the nicest prospect now, don't you think?

You're forgetting about the people who try to fill the void in their hearts with plastic crap. Anyway, if a anybody here is one of those faggots who wants to, "support", creators by buying overpriced blue rays while also being somebody who leeches off somebody else, pls stop breathing.

I was one of those. Back when I had a job I would waste 1000 dollars per month for video games, fast food, trading cards and toys. It will only keep you distracted for some time. Then the inevitable realization comes that your existance is without meaning and that consumerist crap will not give you any meaning.

Same thing here. I save around 50-60% of everything that I make now. Most of what I spend now is on food, gas, and helping my folks. I might buy a new game once a year or so.
Wish I had figured this obvious shit out when I was younger, I was buying all that shit to escape with instead of dealing with the severe dysfunction in my life.

>-How do you split your neetbucks between savings and day to day living?
There are no neetbux. My dad pays for my groceries and I have no other expenses or bills.
>-How much recreationally spending money do you allow yourself?
I usually buy 1-2 $5 steam games a year.
>-Do you worry about how easily any day an accident could ruin you? Any other advice?
I've already had accidents. I just have to deal with them as best I can on my own. I've already had to deal with fainting and cracking my head open completely on my own.

my life is basically over already.
I quit my job to go to college which I failed. Finding a job as a dropout is very hard because everyone suspects you of beeing a failure (which I in fact am). I asked myself often why I even continue to exist. Nothing gives me pleasure anymore and I have nothing to look forward to for the future. I thought of getting back into the labour force and save up money so I can retire early but then I will be in the same situation like today, just with more money. I will still have nothing to do and I will still be waiting for death.

Sadly I am too much of a coward to finnish myself off so I wonder how I will end in a few years when my savings run out.

No NEETbux, I live by a mix of parental support and my small home business. I do have some property to my name, which counts as savings I guess.

>How much recreationally spending money do you allow yourself?


Few hundreds a month, mostly because I can afford it.


>Do you worry about how easily any day an accident could ruin you? Any other advice?


Not particularly, because accidents happen and I think it's pointless living in fear / in function of them.
