You Will Need
- Very little!
Find cheap lodging
Find a free or low-cost place to live. Search online for house-sitting positions both seasonal (such as for beach and ski houses) and full time (as a caretaker).
Frequent thrift stores
Buy your clothes and furnishings at thrift stores. If you check them out frequently, you’ll find great stuff.
Eat what's in season
Eat only what’s in season—it’s plentiful and cheap. Plan meals around what’s on sale, clip coupons, and use foods that give you more nutritional bang for your buck, like beans.
Drink tap water
Drink mostly tap water. You’ll be richer and healthier.
Forget the car
Whenever possible, walk or bike to your destination. Get rid of your car if you can. Bonus: if you do this, you won’t need a gym membership.
