Story Starter Kit: Living Wild and Freegan

Growing up, Averie never really fit in with her well-to-do family. She was always too loud, too opinionated, too bossy, too much of everything and somehow, not enough of anything at the same time. Her family hated her clothes. They hated her hair. They hated her tattoos and piercings. It felt like they hated everything about her but they grudgingly agreed to pay for Averie’s college education. As long as she majored in something they approved of. They picked Economics for her in the hopes that getting a degree in something respectable would help their hopeless daughter make something of herself.

But Averie hated Economics with a passion. The more she learned about it, the more she felt like capitalism was a huge scam designed to keep rich people like her parents rich and poor people poor, no matter how hard they worked. The people at the bottom of this capitalist class structure traded away their lives in exchange for table scraps while their days were spent making billions for the people on top. She didn’t want that kind of life for herself or anyone else. She didn’t want any part in that kind of society at all.

She dropped out of university. Enraged, her parents cut her off from all support and disowned her for being such a colossal embarrassment to them. Averie spent six months couch surfing at friends’ places while she reluctantly saved up some money as a barista. Just until she could escape the rat race.

With the cost of housing at an all-time high, Averie knew she’d need to get creative if she ever wanted to secure a place to live. So when she discovered an abandoned garden shed in an empty field, the tired farmer it belonged to happily sold it and the surrounding plot of land to her for dirt cheap; he wanted to retire and none of his kids wanted to take over the farm. The old shed was a dump anyway and he just needed to be rid of it.

What will Averie do with her life now that she is the proud owner of her very own micro-home? Er… micro-shed? Anything she wants, of course! That’s the whole point of living a freegan lifestyle! If you’re not making any money or spending any money, you’re completely free of the capitalist dystopia society’s been brainwashed into accepting! Averie’s looking forward to growing her own food, supplying her own power and water, and making the most of her newfound life! Well… maybe she will need a little bit of cash here and there to make the shed livable but she’ll figure it out! YOLO, right?

It Has Potential

This old farmer’s shed was never intended for human habitation but with housing becoming more and more unaffordable for young Sims, desperate times call for desperate measures. There are big financial benefits to calling a garden shed home… if you don’t mind the water damage, cracked concrete floors, and spiders. Home sweet home!
