Kevin's only request when we first started this adventure in 2014, was he could manage financially as long as he didn't have to pay for rent. So instantly we had to think out of the box. We found house sitting and have never looked back. We have been lucky enough to house sit for some significant lengths of time. Every property has had an aspect we love, some homes are architecturally designed, others in amazing locations. Everyone we have house sit for has been generous and we would not be where we are now if it were not for you, thank you. House sitting for us has made the most significant impact on our finances, allowing us to be in a position of greater financial security.
In between house sits, we stay with friends, or find a cheap hotel or motel room for a bit of luxury. When we are traveling, we will wild camp or use caravan parks. As Kevin has now purchased his sailboat, we live on this when we are not house sitting.
House sitting probably had the biggest impact on paying my mortgage off in eight years.
