    First she was collecting rainwater, but using it to flush her toilet down the city sewer system. That's not quite off the grid, she was dependent on the city's sewer. Then she starting shitting in a bag and throwing it in the trash. That's not quite being independent either, some paid hauler, sometimes the city itself has to collect it and safely dispose of it.
