What are good ways to save up on money, without a job?
I am 18 years old, and have applied for a supermarket job 5 times. I put in my application with no mispellings and put my correct information on the applications, all five times. I wasn't even given an interview (not even once). I applied at 3 different supermarkets. I have such little time, and little transportation becuase I don't have a car of my own yet. Those supermarkets are too blame, for not giving me a chance. If one them offered me a job, I would have a car of my own already. I save up change (coins), and when I have a large amount of change I go to the bank and change them in for dollars. I do have a savings account. Can anyone give me any suggestions?

I made about $400/week doing that when I was 18. You could work at a gym, the mall, any major department store, and hundreds of... More

How about mowing lawns for some money? Paper routes? Is there a local ice cream shop? I'm sure there are other places besides supermarkets you could apply for. You could even try gas stations. It's hard to save money if you don't make any to begin with. If you plan on attending college, ask about student workers. I... More
