Living Without Money

This is the first installment of a series called Living Without Money. This (r)evolutionary concept of living and traveling without any money that I currently have a huge big crush on. So, starting with this one, I will bring you more and more tasty temptations, to maybe open your mind to the possibility of leaving it all behind, and living without money. You can even bring your dog. Or your parrot. Or your kid. Right now I’m at a point where I’m living with very little money. Over the past 4 years I have deliberately earned substantially less and less each year, and learnt to do more with what I have. At the end of this financial year I will have earned less than the US minimum wage, by a third, by choice. I can’t tell you how many lucrative projects I have turned down this year, that I used to gag with excitement over, because they didn’t feel right or I just simply didn’t need the money. Currently I live on around $6 a day, all incl. And I am happier than I have ever been.

But this woman has lived with no money for 14 years. There are different ways of living without money. This is one way. I’d prefer to be more self-sufficient, and have my own home to come back to, on self-sustainable land, but what she’s doing, might be perfect for you:
