I live off-grid in a tent I got secondhand for a tenner, my loo is a bucket & I made a bed out of tree branches

Asia's Tech News Daily

A TIKTOK woman has revealed how she lives off-grid in a tent in the middle of a forest and used tree branches to make her bed.

However, the woman revealed she loves her lifestyle and much prefers being in the company of the birds and trees to people.

Emily posted a video to her account, withthemoonandforest, explaining why she lives off-grid in Canada, which went viral with one and a half million views.

In the video Emily explained; “Most people don't understand why I live in a tent in the forest.

“It's all we can afford but I truly prefer the company of birds and trees to people.

“I know some people feel sorry for me, others think I am crazy.

“But honestly, I feel most myself and alive out here.”

In another video, Emily gave her followers a tour of her tent and what's inside.

Emily lives in a bell tent that is 16×16 foot which she bought secondhand off of Facebook Marketplace.

She lives with her boyfriend and two pet dogs.

Going through the tent's opening, she shows her bed which is made up of RV mattresses and she and her boyfriend also made a bedframe using branches from the forest.

She also has a full-length mirror in her home and a chair and table set up which she also purchased secondhand off of Facebook Marketplace.

Emily pans the camera to the other side of her tent where she has clothes and food stored on the floor, as they had just moved to the site and hadn't put shelves up yet.

Emily explained that they mainly use the tent for sleeping and hanging out and do most things outside of the tent.

She said she and her partner always cook outside, they also use a compost bucket as their toilet which Emily said she prefers to a normal one.

They also use a solar-powered shower bag to shower outside.

People asked how Emily gets power and she said she often just charges her phone in her car until they purchase a solar system, which they are currently saving for.

The couple are also in the middle of building their own cabin in the woods for the winter months ahead.

Emily and her partner pay £327 a month to the owners of the forest in return for five acres of land.

Emily also supports herself by making and selling pouches on her Etsy shop.

Whilst many people were in awe of Emily's lifestyle some said they couldn't cope with the bugs and, worst of all, bears.

Some users gave Emily advice such as spraying peppermint around the tent to stop spiders from coming in, and Emily assured viewers she locks her food away at night time to not attract bears.

One user exclaimed: “You are not crazy and I do not feel sorry for you. YOU ARE LIVING DUDE.”

“I don't feel sorry for you… I am ENVIOUS. Beautiful life.” Said another user.

A third user commented: “Totally understand the appeal, although I am too much of a comfort freak to do it permanently.”

Plus, a couple reveals why they gave up on conventional housing for house-sitting other people's homes, they saved £1k a month.

And, meet the banker who dumpster dives for food to retire early.

Meanwhile, a family of five sold their home for a caravan so they could travel and homeschool their daughters.
