In this article, I'll introduce "House Sitting".
Have you heard about House Sitting? The idea is close to Couchsurfing.(Couchsurging is explained here) House Sitting is amazing system when you look for lodging for short or middle term. This is that you keep a house clean and manage a house instead of a host going on a trip or something and who can't stay at his home for a while. Your jobs might be look after pets or water to plants or keep a house tidy. However, you can enjoy a nice house by yourself!
Basically you don't need to pay for rent, utility charges and internet. (BUT you have to ask a host and make sure house rules or payment not to make troubles)
But you need to pay for a resister to join House Sitting. It's not a big deal because it's not expensive! You will stay at a good condition house for short - middle term with small money by yourself. How amazing House Sitting is!
