I'm friends with a guy whose Dad and Uncle came to the U.S in the 1970's, bought a house together in Boston, and then lived in their car for 2 years while they rented it out.
By the time they moved in, they had enough cash to open their own business, refinance a lower mortgage, and start families.

wow, i truly didn’t know dumpster diving was an option, but the two of them look a lot healthier than most of the people on the path train, so i guess it’s something to look into ..

Well, if you don't have kids I guess this is something you can do. Kudos to them for living on so little money, except for the fact that they eat out of garbage cans. While I've been very frugal myself, I draw the line at stuff like that. Dumpster diving is just not my thing. I would enjoy the opportunity to occasionally stay at a $13 million loft though.

Hey, if you are willing to do it and you are reducing you're footprint that's totally cool. There's an incredible amount of waste in our society

Jennifer Liepen and Sandy Patch own a $345,000 house in Jersey City that they’ve never lived in — which might not be so unusual, except for the fact that they don’t have any other home.

“We’re nomads,” Patch told The Post. “[We’re] moving to where resources are at any given time.”

Instead, the married couple moves into a different NYC apartment every week or so. As pet sitters, Liepin, 32, and Patch, 33, crash for free at various clients’ apartments and care for cats and dogs while their owners are out of town.

The pair allow themselves a combined weekly budget of just $100. Patch said they have saved “close to $50,000” apartment-hopping for the past two years.
