If you need to save money, don't rent or buy a place to live.

Use your available money to buy a gym membership to a 24-hour fitness center.

Most of these places are less than $50 per month.

1) You will have a place to go at night or when there is extreme weather.

2) Access to showers.

3) A locker to store your belongings.

I'll add one.

Use this site for discounts on almost anything. You'll never be asked to verify you work for any company. Haven't worked for this company in years myself, but used the site today for 15% off tickets to the Braves game on April 11.

Redbox tip if you're wanting to rent multiple movies. Put two movies in your cart, then remove one. You'll get a offer for a discount on a second movie.

This is not very necessary but...

When you use the bathroom at someone's house, comment on how good the soap smells.


It is both a compliment and proof that you washed your hands.

I know one that's about $25/month right next to a Fred's and a stones throw away from a Burger King with free Wifi. Laundromat nearby as well. Could write about such and adventure....

I doubt homeless people have that kind of money to spend, especially on a fitness club.

That is only a couple of days of begging. It is even easier if they work for minimum wage.

If you ever find yourself needing free meals. Email fast food restaurants via their contact us page and let them know you had a bad experience. Be sure to put your actual address and/or email address when prompted. Within a week you will receive numerous electronic and hard copy coupons for free meals from each chain you contacted. Hardee's is typically very generous.

If you have a bad cough, take a large amount of laxatives, then you'll be afraid to cough.
