You aren't gonna make a living off $1.50 SnG's.
And won it up to 50 then went broke I was deff playing out of my bankroll playing 3 dollar sngs cause I would be bored from the 1.5 should I try again any tips from winning players. I would also like advice on how many buy ins I should have as well as tips on grinding against regs. Also curious on how much you should be bluffing in these tournaments. I find myself doing it too much and getting called down by a hand theoretically that should have folded.
Like anything else, it depends, it depends, it depends. I mostly play cash, with the occasional SnG thrown into the mix. When playing any form of Poker where you see the same faces all the time, take notes dammit! get a line on their play, and make a note of it. That way, you can tell who's improving, who's devolving (I've seen the play so different that I'm sure an otherwise good player was letting a fishy SO play the account) who's making the same mistakes over and over again.
I'd say $50 is sufficient for $3.00 SnG's, that's over ten entries, and I highly doubt that the caliber of play was all that much better than at the $1.50 SnG's. This looks like an attitude problem than anything else. Scared money is always losing money. If you feel the need to be more 'rolled, then deposit that much. If you plan to play up, then stick with the $1.50 SnG's and don't worry about "boredom" if you're profitable playing these.
"Also curious on how much you should be bluffing in these tournaments".
It depends, it depends, it depends: who's in? Are they stationy callers? If so, you never want to bluff them. Are there any FoF players there? If so, bluff the hell out of them: they won't call unless they hit a piece of the board. Any nut scared rabbits who're nursing a short stack? Run 'em off!
"I find myself doing it too much and getting called down by a hand theoretically that should have folded".
You answer your own question: stop doing that. Problem solved. If they're calling with hands that should have "theoretically" folded, then there's the possibility they have a line on your play and are exploiting. You have to change it up: less bluffing, more value betting. Either that, or they're 'stations, and unbluffable. Again, more value betting 'stations -- let 'em pay you off.
