Getting Mail

A lot of free-sleepers have trouble getting jobs and other things because of the lack of a permanent address.  One thing you can do is use one of these mailbox places like AIM Mail Center or something like that, that has an address that doesn’t include a PO box.  It doesn’t have the word PO Box in the address at all.  For instance, your address might look like this:

Maureen Genericlastname, 123 Any Street, #100, Anytown, CA  92000

The #100 would be my box number but no one but me knows it unless they look up my address on google.  As far as I know, no one has done this yet in the time that I’ve been free-sleeping.  Some people have even gotten away with using these addresses on their driver’s licenses.  Your mileage may vary.  One could also use an old address for these sorts of things, I suppose. 

I hardly ever tell people my living situation.  It’s on a need to know basis.  Even some homeless people are left to wonder.  It’s not really anyone’s business.

Which leads me to my next post!

About Maureen, Living in a Van

I'm a free-sleeper living in a van in the prettiest part of the world. I do this partly due to financial circumstances and partly because I love a good adventure.
