Free Camping , sometimes called Bookdocking, is a great way to go. You can easily find places all over that allow it. Great way to save money and travel. has a database that you can search to find some free camping sites.

The Common Sense Approach To Boondocking Safety
I truly believe that everything in life, even sitting in a chair and breathing, involves some element of risk. Each of us decides for ourselves every day what risks we are willing to take. If your risk tolerance is exceptionally low, you're not likely to be travelling at all or reading this website.
When it comes to quieting our fears, nothing's more effective than knowledge and experience.
From 8 years of boondocking experience, here are my common sense conclusions, insights and boondocking safety advice.
  • When it comes to robberies, statistically, I am much more likely to be a victim in my house than in my RV.
  • Setting up camp down a dirt road on public land makes me no more a target for a thief than anyone who builds a home or cottage on a country road in a remote area
  • My RV is much less appealing to a thief than a permanent residence in that I don't have the same amount of valuable removable furniture or fixtures that can easily be converted to cash.
  • I'm often only camped in one location for a day or two...not enough time for a thief to scope the place out and get to know my routines.
  • Although the majority of RVers are honest nice people, even if we're camped in a "secured" campground or an LTVA area with other RVers all around us it doesn't mean there isn't a thief amongst us or that we're safe from a break-in or robbery
  • I admit that, like many people, at home, I don't know some of my closest neighbors and I have very little time or interest in seeing who comes in and out of their yard. Most RVers will agree that when we're traveling we're much more likely to get to know and keep an eye on our neighbor's property than when we're at home.
  • In most boondocking areas, the common courtesy is to leave space, a few hundred yards minimum between campers. In campgrounds, where units are closer, if someone (a stranger) is walking towards or around the immediate area of your unit, it may not be as obvious or noticeable.
  • We use common sense when selecting a place to stop. When it comes to boondocking safety we trust our intuition and drive on if the environment doesn't "feel" safe.
  • The further from civilization, the more safe it feels to be camped where we're totally alone.
  • There's safety in numbers. This holds true for boondocking safety. Especially when we're closer to urban areas, we want others, RVers, truckers etc. within view.
  • Most thieves are lazy. That's why the majority of RV break-ins occur within easy access of the cities where most thieves hang out. We avoid boondocking when we're within a short drive of the biggest cities.
  • Most thieves don't want to deal with any type of struggle so the easiest time to steal our possessions is when we're not in the RV. As with any parked vehicle, we don't leave cash in the RV and keep valuables out of sight.
  • Because we're inside our motorhome at night, our RV is much more likely to be a target in the daytime or evening while we 're parked for shopping, dining out, or going to a show in any urban location than when we're camped in an out-of-the way boondocking site.
  • In parking lots, truck stops or road side areas, don't look for the darkest concealed corner. Instead park in the light, and use black-out curtains or eye-wear that block the light while you sleep.
  • No matter where you are parked, if trouble does come to find you, driving away your vehicle can be your best defence.
  • Park so that you can leave by driving forward. If you need to leave in a hurry, you don't want to have to back up, or do more manoevering than necessary.
  • Keep your vehicle in the best possible operating condition.
  • Believe it or not, the only boondocking safety concern isn't burglers. No matter where you're camped, in case of a medical emergency, be sure you have enough fuel to make it to the nearest hospital or all night gas station in the middle of the night.
  • Don't be paranoid. Just cautious.
  • When you're in a community of RVs, even in a gated pay campground, make a point of getting acquainted with your neighbors before you leave your RV unattended for the day.
  • In small towns, if there's no signage to the contrary, ask at the grocery store or gas station or even ask the local police about using the town park or a parking lot to "spend the night". If you get a positive response, you'll have the added security of them knowing you're there and watching out for you.
  • Always be attentive to your surroundings.

I bet you have heard it many times - save water... save the planet... But do we really do it? Well, this time I am determined. I will change my habits to save the planet (hardly), but to reduce my water footprint and most of all to give a good example to my kid. Who knows, he may save the planet one day. While doing my research, I found the "evergreen" rules for water conservation, but also came across some great ideas and tricks on how to conserve water easily. See what I have found and how we can save money by going green. If you have other water saving tips, be welcome to share them here.
How to Conserve Water (Beginners' Level)
Here are those tips and tricks on how to conserve water that are easy to implement. Neither money, nor time investment, nor special preparations are needed. It's just you and your conscious.
  • Take shorter showers. I should confess I used to be a ten-minute-shower-person. I love long and hot showers. They are so relaxing especially after busy or cold days. But let's face it - more than 21% of the household water use comes from the shower. Not to count the fact that water may run unused till we wait for a good to us temperature. Nevertheless, I know I can reduce the minutes under the shower and start relaxing, let's say in a more efficient way.

  • Turn off the faucet when you brush your teeth. That's how you can conserve about 2 gallons of water per brushing.

  • Skip a shave. If you still have to shave every day, just don't rinse your razor under a running tap, but fill your basin with little warm water.

  • Do not wash your hair every day. I think this is not only a good how to conserve water tip, it's a good hair maintenance advice too. If you still feel the need to wash your hair every day, why don't you try a different hair cut or style.

  • Run your dishwasher only when it's full. I used to wash my dishes by hand just because I thought I'd use less water. If you are like me, don't fool yourself. A dishwasher will save you about 10 gallons of water per washing and will use less soap too.

  • Fully load your washing machine. It will save you about 3 gallons of water for each wash. A front-loading washing machine is more efficient than a top-loading one.

  • Don't let the tap dripping. Fix leaky sinks and running toilets quickly.

  • "If it's yellow, let it mellow. If it's brown, flush it down." Have you heard this before? This was one of the fresh how to conserve water tips for me. If you don't feel OK with this, why don't you try implement it during the night? At least you will not wake everybody up when you flush the water.

  • Use the small flush if you have a dual flush toilet. It is sufficient for just about anything, and when it isn't, doing two small flushes is actually better than one big one.
How to Conserve Water (Intermediate Level)
How to conserve water has never been easier, but these water saving tips may require some financial investment. If you are as determined to go green and save money as I am, then they deserve at least your attention.
  • Toilet lid sink. Frankly, this was a real finding for me on how to conserve water in the most practical way. When you wash your hands, water is saved in the tank and is used to flush the toilet next time. It not only saves water, but space too. Note that you can buy only the tank.

  • Install a low-flow shower head and reduce your shower water use by 20 to 60%.

  • Instant Off Water Saver.This is another "precious" how to conserve water trick. Practically, Instant Off controls the water. When you push the rod, water starts. Once the rod is released, water stops. This little water saving device is perfect for bathrooms, kitchens, garage sinks and RVs.

  • Use waterless car wash. So, instead of using 500 gallons of water to wash your car by yourself or 32 gallons at the commercial car wash stations, go for the waterless way and you'll get your car shining like new. Learn more and see products offered at Eco Touch and Freedom.

  • Collect rainwater from your roof's downspout in a rain barrel to irrigate your garden. In Colorado, there is a law that bans rainwater capture...., but anywhere else, this water saving tip may be quite valuable and save lots of gallons of clean water from being spent in watering the garden.

  • How to Conserve Water (Masters' Level)

  • Water recycling - greywater and wastewater reuse systems. This how to conserve water idea is of high difficulty and may require big financial investment. Greywater systems take the water from your shower and kitchen (never from the toilet) and redirect it to watering the garden. Learn more at
Now, knowing how to conserve water, you just need to start doing it. Water and money are both scarce resources. Let's save them thinking of our kids' future.

We are planning on buying some land and getting a tiny house to live in and one of the things about it is that it will be totally off-grid. We are planning on saving money etc , by getting a composting toilet.

If you're like most people, chances are you don't really know what a composting toilet is or how it works. If your initial reaction to the idea is one of disgust, then read on, because we're about to shed some light on the subject! Many people think of a composting toilet as something similar to a port-a-potty or an outhouse. Contrary to this unpleasant image, composting toilets are very clean and sanitary, and they make a great alternative to traditional fixtures. In this article, we'll explain how composting toilets work, and why they are a superior waste management solution that you just might want to consider for your home.

The biggest misconception surrounding composting toilets is that they smell. In reality, nothing could be farther from the truth! If you purchase the right unit, it will be 100% odor free. Good composting toilets use a venting system to maintain odor free operation. A 2" or 4" vent stack must be installed to run vertically up from the toilet and out the roofline of your home. The vent stack is designed to draw air downward through the seat and then up and out the vent. This maintains a partial vacuum inside the unit and ensures that no odor can enter the bathroom. In some units, there is also a small fan assembly to assist with airflow.

There are many varieties of composting toilets to choose from, and contrary to popular belief, not all of them are waterless! There are many composting systems available that use water flushing toilets. These types of units are called central systems, and they are made up of a central composting unit (picture a big box) that sits in the basement or lower level. A separate, more traditional-looking toilet fixture is installed in the bathroom and connected to your water pipes to provide flushing liquid.
The finished product from a composting toilet is, of course, compost. While the uninitiated might have concerns about compost coming from human waste, there is no need to worry. Provided that you followed the manufacturer's instructions, the finished product from your composting unit will be clean and non-offensive. In fact, it will look and smell just like any other normal compost you might purchase from a nursery or garden center.

When shopping for a composting toilet, be sure to look into the product's certifications. Has it been tested to comply with national or international standards for waste management systems? Within North America, composting toilet systems are tested to NSF/ANSI Standard #41. To date, only two manufacturers of composting toilets have successfully had their systems tested and certified to comply with this standard.

The first is Clivus Multrum, a manufacturer of composting systems designed for use in parks and outdoor facilities. The second is Sun-Mar, a Canadian manufacturer of composting toilets designed and approved for residential use. It may be helpful to note that, for consumer's protection and safety, the NSF only certifies composting toilets that are odorless and that produce compost with fecal coliform that does not exceed 200 MPN per gram. In other words, if you use the unit correctly, the finished compost is sanitary and it will not make anyone sick. For more information, visit the NSF's website.

Traditional toilets use as much as 30% of the average household's water consumption. As we move through the 21st century, composting toilets will become an increasingly popular choice for those who need to conserve water, or who simply wish to save money on expensive water and sewer costs. Furthermore, composting toilets are no longer the ugly, awkward fixtures of the past. Modern systems are sleek and contemporary, and blend perfectly in a residential setting. If you're like other Americans looking for ways to save money or minimize your ecological impact, now may be a good time to consider a composting toilet system for your home.

Maybe you like the idea of using coupons, but can't quite commit to "extreme couponing" - that's OK! There are so many ways you can save with coupons that don't require you to spend hours going through the newspaper or stockpiling tons of stuff you don't need. Here are some simple ways to use coupons that won't be extremely time-consuming:

1. Buy name-brand

If you want to get some real savings, you should really try to buy name brand items. Usually there aren't coupons for generic brands, so only buy generic if you don't plan on using coupons. If you have a coupon, see how much it will save you off the name-brand item and make sure you're getting the best deal - usually this will save you more than if you were to purchase the generic brand.

2. Look for coupons online

You don't have to just browse through flyers and newspapers to find coupons - there are tons of websites devoted to helping you find coupons and excellent deals at your favorite stores. Some of the top coupon websites on the web are and There are also some websites that will even do the hard work for you by telling you about items that are on sale at certain stores and where you can find additional coupons for these items to get you the very best savings possible.

3. Put your coupons to use in stores

Have you ever seen the television show where "extreme couponers" walk up to a cash register with a large stack of coupons to pay for their items? Well, you don't necessarily have to take things this far, but you most certainly should try to shave down your shopping by as much as you possibly can by using coupons. For some people, it takes a little time to get used to using coupons, but once you realize the savings you can amass by using them, you'll never turn back.
You might be reluctant to use a stack of coupons for fear of the cashier being annoyed, but don't worry about that. Stores actually like when customers use coupons because they will be able to buy more from the manufacturer and it encourages customers to buy more.

4. Know your prices

Start a spiral notebook with the prices of your favorite items at a couple different stores. Keep track of it for one or two weeks. Knowing this, you can track when your favorite items hit their lowest price and at that point you can stock up.

5. Match coupons to sales

You'll find the most extreme savings by matching your coupons to items that are already on sale. Look at your coupons and try to compare to store ads to see if there are any matches.

All of the ingredients for this simple recipe were bought at the Dollar store. Cheap, quick, and easy to make. Great for a very quick meal.


2 big cans of chicken, dollar tree

1 can of diced tomatoes, dollar tree

1 package of taco seasoning, family dollar

1 can of black beans

1 package of taco shells

toppings - lettuce, cheese, etc

Open and drain the chicken, put in a saucepan.  Add the seasoning and the tomatoes. Warm up. Simmer for a few minutes.

In another smaller pan or a microwave safe bowl, warm up the black beans.

Warm up the taco shells in the oven.

Create your tacos!! I put the chicken mix, then the black beans, topped with cheese on ours. No lettuce in the house. But , really, no one likes the lettuce too much anyway. Today I am out of cheese, so I am having to use my Saratoga Farms nacho cheese sauce powder mix and poured it over the tacos. Still really good. Actually have been doing a pretty good job of eating well while snowed and iced in. About 8 days now. No one has complained yet, except for running out of candy. haha

A portable propane space heater is a great alternative to running your central heater to heat the entire house. If there are rooms that are not used all the time, a propane heater can be used to just heat those rooms. Many people take portable propane heaters on camping trips or use them in their garage or workshop.

Propane heaters do not need electricity to work. That makes them handy for winter storms when you might lose electricity or on trips or places where you might not have electricity. Portable propane space heaters work best outdoors. They look very nice on a patio. You can have a lovely night outside on your patio or balcony with the space heater warming you. The one thing you have to be careful of when using a space heater inside, is carbon monoxide fumes. It may not make sense to ventilate the room you are trying to heat but you must not allow the gases to accumulate inside. Many people make the mistake of not ventilating the room and suffer dire consequences.

The worse mistake you can make is to pull out the old heater from the basement that hasn't been used for awhile. Don't use old and possibly dangerous heaters. Make sure you have an UL listed sticker on your heater. A new space heater does not have to cost a lot of money; there are lots of cost effective heaters available. You are better off spending the money than taking the risk of using a dangerous heater. Your heater needs to be efficient to work well and save you money.
They are handy because you can move them easily to heat up another room. Many people will use a space heater in rooms that are more heavily used and close off the rest. This methods works well even in smaller homes. There are always rooms that are less used during different parts of the day and night. You can close the room vents, close doors, and only heat the rooms when you go in them. The difference in your electric bill may be worth the inconvenience of moving the heater from room to room. A good portable heater can quickly and efficiently heat up a small office or bathroom.

Propane space heaters usually cost less to run than equivalent electric heaters. By heating only a portion of your home you are using less electricity and saving money and also using an alternative form of heat.

A portable space heater [] can easily take the chill out of the air. Get more information on the different types of units. Find out which are the best portable heaters [] and which one is right for you.
