2.) You have no friends or family
3.) You cannot get a job without residential address
4.) You cannot get a credit card, health insurance without residential address

Plenty of off street labor jobs that do not require anything more than motivation and follow simple instructions. You do not even need to speak English.

For me, I could live pretty comfortable homeless without any money. I could be a homesteader or off grid if I did not want to travel and like nice trucks

I would go around local small businesses asking if anybody needs any under the table help. It's pretty easy depending on where you live. If that didn't work out I would panhandle for spare change so I could at least eat for the day.

To be frank, i'd avoid getting into such a state in the first place.

I watched a programme recently about some guy that went homeless, living In city centres for a few weeks.

The one thing that he did say was how well fed he was. It wasn't nutrional, good food, but he never went hungry.

Really depends where you are. In the rural areas especially winter you'd 80% croak in a month with no possessions ie tools / weapons and lack of free food. Pulling it off in the city would be much easier.

Beggars do pretty well from what I've seen on any programme featuring homelessness. It's not hard to make decent money begging, but they tend to have mental health issues or drug issues, so have no way of using the money they earn productively.

Been there. You learn to swallow your pride and ask for help.

This teaches you to be humble and not to burn unnecessary bridges or to use people.

You treat people fairly, you pay back your debts and you stay as true as possible with others.

Thats when the real currency comes in. Money cannot buy integrity and information. Those 2 things convert into money to get you along.

No one can tell me different since its saved me on a few occasions.

Rural is tough indeed - that's why the influx in cities

In my area people are able to recycle some cans and bottles for 10c each. Poor people have been spotted going through household garbage bins looking for these to recycle. You can also look for lost golf balls near golf courses and then sell them on.

Stealing from charity bins also used to be a thing but they've since set up security cameras to curb this. I suppose it doesn't matter though if no-one knows who you are and you don't live anywhere.

Bottle redemption

Search couches in public lobbies for loose change
Find scrap copper / brass at the dump

This reminds of of the Seinfeld episode where the mail dude and the tall weird guy load up a mail truck and drive to MI to redeem cans for $0.10 instead of nickle each.

Back in the day, grocery stores would accept our 16oz pop bottles for credit. Nehi peach, grape, strawberry, and orange. RC Cola. Mmmmm... good times!

Up north, you can still get money out of glass bottles.

Work enough at some job that doesn't require anythin until i got enough to buy some van, would drive it to somewhere close by to a city hopefully won't be stopped by cops, would try to get enough money at least for food & clothes, would get the rest bit by bit after there.. You has no ID or anythin, which means no fees, just get enough until you can start afford lame Laptop and then free-wifi jobs are available ;3

Not sure about the UK, but in the states a state ID is required for Library card, which is needed to use their computers. The same will be needed for a gym membership, so that is out of the question.

Chromebook + Free Public Wifi + VPN might help you beat this situation or help you stay in a hotel until you figure this out. I'd try to find loopholes.
