Free haircuts

Free haircuts can be had in different ways. If you find yourself moneyless it doesn't mean you need to walk around like a bum. We all know hairdressers are quite expensive in the Western world. So let's look at some alternatives.

Haircut coupons

If you're lucky you can find coupons for a free haircut, but most of these are mere for a small percentage reduction. Unless you're a veteran soldier or even still in service, we found some free haircuts for veterans, but well, in that case you're usually trimming your hair yourself in a minute or two.

Ask a friend or relative

You might be surprised but many people are pretty good at cutting hair. Just ask around among your friends or try posting a request on a website.
It can be a fun and very social experience to have your hair cut by friends from now on. You can return the favor by cooking a meal (possibly with some free food you get) or otherwise bartering some other kind of service like fixing their bicycle's flat tyre.

Become a model

You don't have to be an underweight junky to become a model. If you dare you can also become a testing model for training hairdressers. Like this you will end up with interesting haircuts for free. Check the local hairdresser schools to find some good options. Beware, it helps if you're not expected with a clean boring haircut at work.

I hope you give these solutions a try some time. You could even throw a haircutting party with your friends.

No money for food

No money for food? If you're in this situation you can try to get free food at the food bank or through appropriating food waste. On Moneyless.org we have quite a few tips to get food without money. There's no reason to starve if you don't have money. On the contrary. You can ask for food and you can search for food.

Car sharing

No money to buy a car? Be glad, because without a car you have fewer problems. You could try car sharing instead. Car sharing is a global trend and it can be a pretty good option besides public transport or even hitchhiking. Car sharing is a relatively good solution for saving money. Sharing a car without money is only possible if you're driving a sponsored car or if you have a friend who lets you use their car.

Use Free Software

Free software is software that is made ​​for people to use freely. It does not cost any money to use it. And besides, everyone has the right to the source code of the software to make changes and distribute the changes, which often turn out very well for the quality. The way free software works can also be a great way to transition towards a moneyless society.

Pregnant and no money

Pregnant and no money. What now? My wife and me were sitting at the midwife for our first appointment. We were talking about finances and we were asked how we thought to raise the money, without money. We were slightly confused by this question. And possibly naively we posed ourselves the question: "Money? Do we really need it for a baby?"

Share stuff

Networks for sharing stuff are great to get to use things such as tools. You don't need to buy anything, because you can simply ask your neighbor if you can borrow from them. For example a bicycle pump or a ladder for painting. Many people are already doing this in their neighborhood: "Quickly ask the neighbor if we can borrow his drill."

Raphael Fellmer

Some people have consciously chosen for a life without money. Raphael Fellmer and his family have been living without money or income since 2010, "to increase consciousness about responsibility, that we all carry for hunger, injustice and environmental damage." Raphael is living in Berlin with wife and children. He has been on TV several times.
