#1 I don’t pay thousands of dollars a year in rent
#2 I don’t pay monthly bills for water, electricity, internet, and/or trash pickup.
#3 Because I have fewer bills, I don’t have to work 50 weeks a year.
#4 Living in a small space helps me keep my tendency to collect things in check.
#5 If I want something I own (my towel, my pillow, a certain shirt, a certain book), I only have to walk out to my van to get it.
#6 If I don’t like where I’m staying, it’s easy to go elsewhere.
#7 Whenever I’ve got my van with me, I’ve got my bed with me. If I can park, I can nap comfortably.
#8 I’ve got the ceiling and walls of my van decorated with mementos, so it’s like living in a scrapbook.
#9 I’m less isolated from nature than are most people who live in conventional homes.
#10 I can hear the sound of rain hitting my metal roof.

Cozy and how did I know there’d be a stuffed animal or two?
