Living in a self-sufficient way

Something I haven't paid much attention to so far, on Moneyless: self-sufficiency. I wonder. Is it because I've always lived in a city? Or because I love travelling too much, which makes it hard to stay in the same spot?

I personally haven't turned into a hobby or lifestyle: to be able to live without external help. On the other side, I've lived some days in Portugal from fruit that I found on the road. But I haven't gone further than that.

I don't yet have plans to take this direction in the near future. But I would like to add more information about this on Moneyless.org, with more information about people who are living this way and for example about eco-villages and intentional communities.

Find Edible Plants

Fruit such as strawberries, apples and raspberries don't have to come from a supermarket. You can find it in your street, a park or a forest near you. You can reap this food relatively often. And except fruit there are also chestnuts, dandelions, wild herbs and a lot more.

Bartering

Bartering is a cheap and magnificent way to satisfy certain needs. Many people are bartering, exchanging things or services for other things or services but also companies are doing it more and more. Bartering is recommended if you want to live without money or if you want to save money.
