A man has claimed he can survive on just £10 a week.
Jamie Waddington, 25, believes he saves up to £8,000 a year by living in the back of a rusty old caravan after he ditched his life as a house-sharer for his new outdoor home.
Speaking to the Daily Mirror newspaper, he said: "Unless I'm moving around in the van I can get by on less than £10 a week. I buy very little, however I eat well. Aside from farmers, you get good food in honesty boxes for very little money, such as wonky veg. I could make the van exactly how I wanted it and it is better than a house-share with people I don't get on with know well. I've always been an outdoor person but I realised this would give me the freedom what I wanted with my life. I felt I was growing up too quick and didn't want to settle down. I wanted to do something I had control over and my aim was to become self-sufficient."
