It seems to me the problem id obvious if you need a jump every few days ... your battery is either being drained by something or your battery has a bad cell

Clicking solenoid is usually a sign of a weak battery. Check the voltage in the battery with a multi meter when it will not start. Sounds like you have a parasitic electric draw. Check the button on the glove box light switch and make sure it works and shuts off the light. If that is OK check the net to find the parasitic draw. Way to long to explain here.
