How to live in your car

Maybe you’re like me and you’re thinking about the many people without homes this time of year. Here in Chicago temperatures have dropped below freezing with the wind chill, and this makes me appreciate every bit of warmth I’ve got. Have you ever considered that some people choose to live without housing? Ken Ilgunas has an article on Salon.com about going to Duke University and living out of his van in order to keep from going into debt. On Howstuffworks.com they have a post on how to live out of your car. At the very least all of this can help us think about how to live with much less.

Many people just can’t wrap their heads around why anyone would want to live with so little. Our very way of life here in America involves being padded against going without. Like poverty is synonymous with immorality. What is it that has caused this starvation complex among us? Why are we so afraid?
