    If your 60 take your cpp early .

    Other then that I would like to make 400 morsels a week also

    As it is I might make 525 a week putting in 65 plus hours going to work 6 days a week.

    I don't think other than getting a proper education or climbing the appropriate corporate ladder can you truly make a sustainable, residual income.

    Hell, if I can do something to gauarantee me $200, or even $100 a week of cashflow I'd be all over that.

    There's no free lunch in the world man, during college I moonlighted as a warehouse person down by the lake for $20/hr every weekend because I needed the cash. I don't know the general labour market here but Ontario was a huge car making city so we had that opportunity.

    Unless you wish to fall victim to those "multi-level marketing/direct sales" schemes.. Then best of luck to ya.

    My career has a decent income level but I think having a soft cap on your pooning adventure is both healthy and recommended.. Whether that limit is self-imposed or wallet-mandated.. Lol.

    It may not make you $400/ week, but there is money in collecting bottles.
    The lady that scours our back alley's on collection day fills her car ( small hatchback), in about an hour or so.
    Each bag is around $15-$20.
    I'm sure she does more than one trip each morning.
    A fellow who used to collect them elsewhere said he put one of his kid's through college collecting bottles.
    A ton of people just put their bottles in the blue recycling bins.

    You sound like somebody who spends too much. If short on cash, why do you pick $400 / session options, cannot you find something reasonable below?

    If you spend more than needed on the hobby, you likely do the same with other expenses. Check the expense side.

    I didn't mean to sound super inflammatory; the most pragmatic approach is to manage your expenses and set up a good cashflow. If you truly need $400 per week then you must cut costs to generation $20,800 per year.

    There are many ways to attempt this. There's either a lump sum investment to generate said cash (please think about taxes before throwing your money into a GIC/CD) or do an in between of cost savings and investment to have that type of cashflow.

    Regardless, it is a HEFTY order to achieve, unless you are already making $300k per year, because otherwise this would be a "hobby" that takes up more than 10-15% of one's income, and that's simply excessive. Lol.

    Says the man who spent how much recently... Never mind.

    Per earlier polls on PERB, some people spent a far bigger share than 10-15% of their income.

    Remember that many customers are at or close to retirement. They might have substantial savings. It may be totally correct for some to spend more than they earn.

    I have spent a lot and I am not going to lie, but I don't think I can keep up the pace of 3-4 SP's every week because, I mean I think I'd Poon myself into an early grave. LOL.

    I was here on a short stint and decided to have some fun. Having no attachments and some deposible income definitely made my short "season" very fruitful.

    This might be tangenting but I am forcing myself to stop for a couple of weeks (off season!! I like football, haha).. Just so I can focus on my work and personal life..

    Not talking down to anyone, but $400 a week even for me in perpetualty is also pretty nuts lol.
    I think once a week with a lovely lady is definitely considerable.. I just really want to get in shape because Vancouver is too fit. LOL.

    Pretty much every poster here doesn't have as much money as they'd like to spend on this. Having said that this isn't a money problem it's a mindset problem.

    Or you could be gay4pay I don't know.

    Steal tax dollars.
    Exploit the uneducated.
    Exploit the desperate.
    Steal an invention.

    This is how most rich people get rich. ....especially the stealing tax dollars.

    ....or you could be a male service provider. Might have to see 3-5 clients per week to get 400. ....if you are not young and fit then you might need to see 10clients to get 400 per week.

    haha

    CPP, max is 1114.17/month, that is if you maxed out your contributions, over the 40 or so yrs you worked

    of which it would be reduced by 36% if taken at age 60

    which is taxable, hardly a money maker
