Im thinking of living in my car during the summer. I want to be clear I'm not broke and could live in an apartment on my own but I'm thinking that during the summer I move into my car to save money. I have a YMCA membership so I can take a shower and I mostly eat at work or once a day (huge meal). I can charge my phone at work or at the library. I'll get an apartment during the winter. Should I go for it?

The 2nd option is no.

If I could change the title it would be "To live or not to live.... in my car?"

I live in Wichita and it's pretty chill. I jog at midnight during the summer along side the river. Under the bridges there are homeless and they never bother me.

The longest I have slept in my car was for a week. Can’t say it was the most comfortable I had ever been, but it worked. But, that was only because I was 15 and could not legally rent a hotel room for myself, when I would go to San Diego Comic Con. That lasted a till I was 18, and could then get a Hotel room. But, it’s a bit risky to keep all of your belongings in your car like that. Though, whatever you decide, good luck to you.

Barry Gordy lived in his car and saved over a Million bucks. Not telling yes or no just letting you know you ain't the first to think it.

@nerdork: Most likely wont do it but the thought popped in my head and it makes for interesting conversation.

I sleep in boxers and I love the heat. Besides this is at night, I go jogging at night during the summer cus it's so fresh.

Whatever floats your boat, dude.

a few months ago I was the opposite, having no car and living in an apartment. When your grocery store is just below your building and you don't go out a lot, then it's easy to live car-less. But if I had more of an active social life, I don't know what I'd do.

So basically you're saying you are thinking about being intentionally homeless? Some of those homeless you see while you're jogging might rob you out of spite for that.

When you say it like that it makes it sound like a bad thing. Did you not see my car? Also I never carry cash on my so joke's on them.

Yes.... Go off the grid. No more Franchises, no more botox, no more "Hey, oh, lets clone another goat," and certainly no more sexual harassment lawsuits, what's wrong with saying "Hey, nice ***s." When did that go out the window?

I dont know man, I cant even "accidentally" (wink wink nudge nudge) walk into the women's restroom without getting maced. This isnt the America my Grandpa told me in stories.

@saint_rog_el: Ha. I saw this women at work yesterday and I noticed she lost some weight since I last seen her. I wanted to tell her she looked good but then I thought about it and didn't want for it to somehow be interpreted as something more.

BTW, that's a quote from the great comedian Lewis Black in the movie Accepted.

SH************T! Totally spaced on that. I can put my clothes in the trunk but I have 3 short boxes (already 4) and a ton of paperbacks/hard covers. I think that will go into the basement of these apartments I work at. The Landlord has nothing down there.

I like to do crazy things for the story. I once photo shopped my head onto a photo of Justin Timberlake's when he was in his d!(k in a box costume, then I posted all those pictures all over school. Ladies were all over me.

In your case I would see if you have space to place your things and sleep comfortable

rent out a storage shed/container that way you have room for all your stuff, you're secure at night, and it's probably a lot more comfortable than your car..you could even put a bed in there

Ok, I would suggest sleeping in your car for a week to see how you like it, then decide.

If you still like it, think about how more likely it is for you to get your car stolen than your house being destroyed.

You're probably right. I could also live in these apartments basements (I know the landlord) but Im afraid of getting my window broken, cus it's happened before.
