CONWAY, Ark. (KTHV) -Since 1985, the cost of attending college has more than doubled.
It's caused families to adjust how they spend, and it's made students more mindful of where their money goes—Brandon Blume is one of those students.
By most normal standards, you could describe Blume as an everyday college junior. He goes to work, goes to school and does well.
He's mostly normal because before he goes to work or class Blume travels from his home, which happens to be a 1982 Chevy Grummans.
"I've got an AC unit-- a composting toilet," Blume said as he toured his living space.
Since November, Brandon has been living out of bread truck he parks in a friendly neighbor's lawn.
"Not having refrigeration, I eat a lot more fruits than veggies," he continued.
