As we have discussed in other articles having a job as a cashier at a store is not glamorous and at times can be downright boring.

Also check if it is ok with your manager first but often times they will just be happy to know their employee is actively looking at every coin while on the job and being good with money is definitely a skill they want to make sure your have as a cashier. Whenever you see a coin that is old or a bill that is old hold on to it might be worth more than “face value.”

If you’re ever homeless spend your remaining money on a 24-hour gym membership. You’ll have a place to go at night, access to showers, and a locker to store all your belongings.

Of course no one ever wants to be homeless or be in that situation but having a gym to go to is a great way to stay in shape and stay clean cut while you look for a new job and get back on your feet. Gyms are clean places with showers, free water, sometimes snacks, and if you can find it even often open twenty four hours a day.
