Housesitting is one of the greatest gigs for a gypsy diva. I am currently housesitting in Sacramento and have another gig lined up in Coloma in a few weeks. I’m enjoying it immensely and am considering continuing the trend through the winter.

There are several benefits to being a housesitter:
1) You don’t have to pay rent, alleviating many of the stresses that come with having a monthly bill. (Some homeowners will even pay you).
2) You don’t have to live in your car or truck.
3) T.V.
4) It’s a great way to explore new cities, states, and even countries without having to sleep in a hotel or tent.

With that said, I found several great housesitting sites:

Housesitting in Australia
Mind My House
Housesitting Forum

And of course there’s always your local Craigslist!
