non-predictible, I am meaning avoiding spending it for things such as groceries

same sort of process.
	The second will vary in method depending on one's individual skills
and situation. However, I will note that it will be easier for those with
independent earning skills- a self-owned business, for instance.

reading on the underground/black economy, I have not actually attempted any
of the maneuvers discussed. Thus, what I say should be taken with at least a
