No Money Man: The thrifty adventures of Mark Boyle
Mark Boyle lives the good life and does it without spending a nickel (or in his case, a shilling). He lives in a small camper and makes or scavenges everything he uses. Before making the big move to living without money, he made a list of all the things he uses and consumes and then figured out how to get by without buying.
He was pragmatic about his adventure — you can’t make solar panels from scratch — so he bought a set that provide him with enough power to light and run his laptop (another nod to pragmatism). He takes solar showers, does his business in a homemade outhouse, and brushes his teeth with dried crushed-up fish bone and fennel seeds. To eat he practices the art of Dumpster diving and cooks on a rocket stove.
