This Young Google Employee Has Found an Innovative Way of Saving 90% of His Salary (6 pics)

Brandon is a 23 year old software engineer at Google who decided that he was tired of paying rental on an apartment ($2,000 per month) that he was hardly ever at so he bought a $10,000 16-foot 2006 Ford with 157,000 miles on it , which he parks on the Google premises and which doubles as his home. He eats and showers in the building and is able to save almost 90% of his monthly salary by cutting his living costs so dramatically.
“I realized I was paying an exorbitant amount of money for the apartment I was staying in — and I was almost never home. It’s really hard to justify throwing that kind of money away. You’re essentially burning it — you’re not putting equity in anything and you’re not building it up for a future — and that was really hard for me to reconcile,” says Brandon.

Because he is saving so much money, Brandon expects to payoff his $22,434 in student loans within the next 6 months. Brandon isn’t sure how much longer he wants to live in the truck. For now it’s working out perfectly and doesn’t see himself moving out any time soon.
