How to live rent free?

I'm tired of losing my income to monthly housing expenses, but in this **** economy, I'm looking to completely eliminating monthly rent, I just don't know what good housing alternatives are there other than squatting or living in my 2000 toyota corolla. I don't want to pay money to someone every month for a place to stay. That entire concept is ludacris! I'd spend more of my money on businesses if I didn't lose it all to pay for housing.

    Learn how to drive a semi and drive OTR for a company that has cabs in their trucks..

    This works great as you are on the road most of the time. Most truck stops have showers, restaurants and you can park and sleep as well

    There you go, problem solved!

    Maybe you could find a job as a counselor in a group home. I'm not sure if you actually get to live in the home all the time, but you'd have a roof over your head part time.

    Pitch a tent, live on the streets, make a tree house, or grow up.

    Unless you plan  to live on the streets, there isn't one single way to live without some kind of monthly housing expense. You may not WANT to pay someone monthly for rent, but there aren't any alternatives unless you own a home outright--and even then, you're still going to pay someone for the privilege of using public utilities. Buy a piece of land, build your own cabin, heat it with wood from your own trees, and dig your own well. Once you're out of trees for heat, and your well runs dry, and you are tired of spending every day chopping wood or digging for water, maybe you'll realize that renting isn't as bad as you thought.

    Over the Road (OTR) trucking.  You can live in your cab.  Even better if you can partner up and one sleeps while the other drives.

    Property manager/handyman.  Free or reduced rent in return for collecting rent and making repairs.
