      My husband and I live on a disability check of $600 a month, with no

      other government help except medical. There are numberous ways to

      live and vacation cheaply and if I can do it on my budget, think how

      it will benefit someone else!

      Many animal rescues need volunteer help to feed dogs, cats, birds,

      etc. Some will provide you a place to live, other may ask you have

      your own camper but offer a place to park for free in exchange for a

      few hours a week in voulunteer work. Some of these rescues also

      provide your food!

      Campgrounds are a cheap way to live in warmer climates or to travel.

      It is hard to beat $330 a month for all utilities included. Look

      around, some campgrounds are very small and do not advertise and

      these gems often go for $180 or less a month including all utilities,

      cable, and internet! If you happen to not know an area and still want

      to camp cheap then consider work camping. All major campgrounds

      including KOA need work campers. You work 15-25 hours a week and camp

      for free!This puts you right in the middle of expensive locations

      like Miami, Key West,Orlando or in any state. There is also a site to

      register as a work camper. The work is simple and easy and you can do

      this for a short vacation or a way of life.

      When getting a camper think mirco mini. Ours is 21 foot. We have a

      10×10 tent next to us that we use for storage and to keep a full size

      freezer,washing machine and fridge. We cook on our gas grill plus

      have a stove and mircowave inside. Also, when buying a camper look at

      older models, you will get the better deal. We paid $750 for ours and

      updated the insides and customized it for our needs. When we are done

      our investment will be worth over $5000 because it will be a fully

      modernized antique! Valuable to collectors but because of the age

      cheap to get insurance on and plates for!
