Upon Googling random articles about how others live in their car, I came across one where a blogger referred to his situation as being “homefree” rather than homeless.
I absolutely loved this term because I’m choosing to live in my car to save some money before my trip to Hawaii and my move into a new apartment. The reality of only having a few square feet didn’t turn me off to the idea. Neither did not having my own restroom, wifi, fridge, stove, etc. I wasn’t even nervous about only being able to carry the bare minimum with me.
After watching The Minimalists on Netflix a few months ago, I fell in love with the idea of tiny houses, only having the necessities and bringing more joy into your life without falling into consumerism. I went on a massive purge and donate of all things that didn’t bring me a genuine sense of fulfillment or use anymore and it felt good to focus on only what you need.
That mindset is what brought me peace with the situation. 🙂 I was eager to put my passion for minimalism to the test and create a new awareness of gratitude for what I owned, how I lived, my health, my job, my relationships with people, etc.
So, how am I, as a health conscious, zero-waste vegan, living in my car?
Here are my biggest tips that I’ve picked up on so far.
