I have mostly only been carrying $20 in my wallet. To me, that is just the right amount for food or as an emergency that only utilizes cash. And like some have mentioned, I have mostly been paying things in a cashless manner and that's about it.

I was once in a similar situation as you where I asked for a position change to another department (doing a different scope). While at that new department, things are not working out for me, still I tried to hang in there till the end of the project.. However luckily for me, both me and my former manager did schedule to have a meeting after the end of the project to check and see how things are for me and what is the next proper course of action - to be 'officiallised' in that new role, or to go back to old dept. or something... And so before the said meeting happens, I did think long and hard of what I really wanted. Truth be told, a part of me is really really very glad that I am able to try out the new role, always thought it is one for me but guess what - I am wrong (perhaps I did not have a good guidance) and another part of me is sad as before moving to the new role - I was pretty much in a state of 'I am not going to do any more of old dept's work, yay'. In any case, I did go back to my old back but with added responsibilities. Somewhat of a mixed feelings but at least I felt that I am enjoying it a little more, if anything. Having said that, like others have suggested, do have a chat with your superiors. Hopefully something does works out for you!

If I were in your shoes, I will possibly be taking up the 100k/year job, and work on it at most for a year, or maybe two, if I think I am 'enjoying' or 'excelling' at that job. Having said that, the reason that I took on it is mostly because, currently I am one without a degree (in very late twenties here) and so, having those amount of money will do help me out a lot. Education can be pretty expensive, as such this presents an opportunity for me but at the expense of my health/ day-to-day fulfillment (whether am I enjoying the thing I am doing or procastinating all day about my work), or both or more... Especially so, you have mentioned it is a sales jobs - I presume there is a target to hit, and perhaps there is also a need for you to do social interactions with people etc. Overall, in a nutshell, this can be a tricky situation to anyone. Such situations present a different scenario towards each individual - as some have mentioned, it depends on what is your financial status, your mindset and there are lots more that you can pretty much find in this chain of comments in this thread. Ultimately, whatever that you have choose, do not regret them and definetely do not think back of the other choice that you did not made - eg. "Why did I not choose that job"/ "This job's benefits sucks big time..." etc., because that can be pretty harmful mentally in a sense.
