Family Of 3 Pays Off $225,000 Debt By Selling Everything And Moving Into A School Bus

Amy and Derek Cobia were sick of living in debt so they quit their jobs and sold most of their belongings. They also decided to live in a school bus.

They bought the bus for $3,000 on eBay and spent $14,000 to convert the bus into a house for themselves, their daughter, Payson, and dog, Britches.

“Everybody thought we were crazy,” Derek told FOX 13 Tampa. “People still do.”

According to their Facebook, The Frugal RVer, Amy and Derek have been able to pay off their $225,000 debt in less than a year by downsizing and living more simply in their converted home.

As you’ll see in the footage below, Amy gives a tour of their tiny home. The couple turned barn doors into pantry cabinets that double as a table and store clothes and other items in drawers under their beds.

“No electricity bill whatsoever,” Amy said. “No water bills, either.”

The couple makes money by doing odd jobs and selling things online. While tiny home living has become popular lately, some people can’t imagine living the way Amy and Derek do. “I want people to know that you can live happily without a bunch of stuff,” Amy said. “There are a lot of people who — they’re just afraid but life is too short,” Derek added.
