It's that time again. Time to reflect on how living in my van is going. I have been living in my van officially since April. From April until June l was living in campgrounds, selling advertising for different campground maps in Canada and USA. For various reason, l decided that it wasn't working out like l planned. So l quit and returned to my home town.
I have been pretty stationary the last two months and living in Toronto in a couple of parking lots in my van.
I have been rent free since April, however l am counting only since June, if l was like most people, l should be renting a place since l am stationary.
I love being rent free and have a hard time wrapping my mind around parting with $500 to $1200 for rent, so for now, l will continue living in my van.
My friends are getting used to me residing in my van. I actually really like it. I have all the conveniences of living in an apartment, although l do shower at the gym. I have spots where l know l can get free wi-fi, l watch net-flix or borrow DVD's from the library. I have a kitchen to cook my food, a comfy bed to sleep. A toilet for doing "the business".
And for two months l have saved between $1000 and $2400 in rent. How good is that!!
