My life without money.
Heidemarie Schwermer, a 63-year-old German woman, has lived without money for the last ten years, and has written a book about her experiences called My life without money

At the age of 54 Heidemarie gave up her job as a psychotherapist, gave away all her money and her flat and threw away her credit cards. Today apart from a few clothes (three sweaters, two skirts, two pairs of shoes, and a coat) and a few personal belongings, she doesn’t own anything.
It all began as a one-year experiment. In her home city of Dortmund she set up a ´swapping circle´ where people swap services without using money, for example, a haircut for a mathematics class. To prove that this could work she decided to give up using money for a year. But when the year ended she continued and has not used money since then.
At first she house-sat for friends who were on holiday. She stayed in their house in return for watering the plants and looking after their animals. At the moment she is staying in a student residence where she can sleep, have a shower, or use a computer in return for cooking for the young people who live there. She also ‘works´ as a psychotherapist. ´Before I treated very wealthy people but now I help anyone who turns up. Sometimes they give me something in return but not always´ Heidemarie says, ´I can live thanks to my contacts. A lot of people who know me understand what I´m doing and want to help me. When I need a bus ticket for example, or a new tube of toothpaste I think, "Who can I ask? What can I give them in return?" If I want to go to the cinema, I might offer to look after somebody´s children for the afternoon.
It is one of the mistakes of our society that most people do something they don´t like just to earn money and spend it on things they don´t need. Many people judge you according to how much you earn. In my opinion, all jobs are equally important. You may not earn a lot of money but you may be worth a lot as a person. That´s my message.´
So what did she do with all the money she earned from the sales of My life without money?
I gave it all away…
