Having no money makes life in our society hard. At first sight at least. It can be solution as well. It's challenging you to come up with new ways to satisfy your needs. Although having no money is often experienced as negative it can also be a positive thing.

Our society is based on the money economy: all transactions are monetary. But does it apply to everything? No! The most beautiful things in life are free. And above all: there are alternative ways to get food, even if you don't have money. And even if you are pregnant without money you can raise your baby in a nice and beautiful way.

Many people immediately think about borrowing money when their money is all spent. Some even borrow money without any regular income. Everyone can make their own choice, but here on Moneyless you will mainly find a lot of tips about how to get around for free.

Another alternative is bartering. There are many people who live without money, who made a conscious choice to give up cash and other forms of currency. They consciously don't have money, some even live stateless. Some satisfy their needs by exchanging services, others prefer to think of doing it pay-it-forward style. Often this is an inspiration to people who involuntarily don't have money. In other words: how to be rich without money.

Free wiki software

Hardly anyone who surfs the internet has not seen Wikipedia. Still many people are unaware of the etymology of the name. The term wiki was actually coined by Ward Cunningham in 1995 when he wanted to create a website for common programming patterns. He chose the word "wiki" which means fast in Hawaiian, a dying language. Ward's wiki was a big success and is still used today. Six years later Jimmy Wales started Wikipedia, which was actually a side project of Nupedia, which was supposed to be a serious encyclopedia written by professors and PhDs.

Free Stuff

A lot of people give away their superfluous stuff with pleasure. They're doing this because it's a shame to throw away good things, or because they prefer to give away than to ask for money. Often people give away things that are not worth enough in their eyes, but they like to make others happy with it.
