I have been interested in simplifying my life these days. How much do I actually need to be happy? With my organizing business I get to see all the stuff people have accumulated and it causes so much unnecessary stress. I stumbled across this article of a woman who became homeless and her spending plan to get out of it. This is the list:
1. Phone- cheap disposable. Problem keeping it charged
2. Address- need to receive mail or give address for job. You can get a post office box or ask a friend if you can use their address
3. Shower- use locking bathrooms at gas stations or you can rent a shower at trucking stations. This would be the worst for me.
5. Mylar Emergency Blanket
6. Bar Soap
10. Plastic Tarp
12. Hats/ Gloves
14. Watch/ Travel Alarm
15. Pepper Spray
So looking at the list the main priorities are eating, sleeping, grooming, safety, and warmth. Interesting.
