Have you ever thought about the flexibility of a lifestyle based on living in a car full time?

Let’s explore a few of the benefits that van living can offer:
This means being able to make a living from anywhere. Not being dependent on one location, city, or state for a job. Not having to settle down in one spot and buy real estate or pay rent to stay there. While many people these days are still stuck in the Monday through Friday, 40 hour a week grind, inherent to most office jobs, others have started to adapt their lifestyle to become location independent. How are they doing it? Well for starters with techniques such as freelancing, telecommuting, seasonal employment, and temporary contract work.
Lower Cost of Living in van:
The major expenses that we all pay each month include rent, utilities, and transportation. However, living full time can either reduce or eliminate many of these expenses in a few easy steps. With van living, there is no rent to pay. You just park your van someplace. Next, utilities are definitely less, because he can run independently from the power grid, if equipped properly, you may have no utility bills at all. Transportation expenses can also be much less if you find a convenient and safe spot to park your van that is centrally located to the things that you need and use every day. You may have some cost for gas when you drive around from time to time, but it should still be less than when you have to make a daily commute into work from the suburbs.
Less Need for Stuff:
You can definitely save more money if you quit buying “stuff” that you really don’t need. Think of the van lifestyle as an easy way to impose a limit on the amount of stuff that you own now, as well as the amount of stuff that you might buy in the future. With limited storage space inside the van, you have to be very selective about what you own, because there’s just no room for the extra junk. Van living is a great way to enforce minimalism in your life.
These are just a few of the major benefits of living in your van. I’m sure if you really step back and think about all the possibilities that this type of van living offers, you will come to agree that it is a great way to save more money.
