Shailene Woodley keeps ''almost'' everything she owns in one suitcase.

The 'Divergent' actress decided her life would be ''easier'' if she gave up her Los Angeles home - which her grandma now lives in - and so she takes all her belongings with her wherever she goes.

She said: ''Almost everything. I have some kitchen items that my grandma is using. But other than that, yeah, everything that I own and use is in a carry-on suitcase. I figure if I only own a few things and it gets lost, then I would get nothing.

''I was only home for 15 days last year and I got home and I was like, 'I don't want to be alone. I want to be with my friends and family.'

''So, I got rid of everything just so I could have one suitcase that would be easy to transport between houses and just kind of couch surf for a few months. But it's so refreshing and it takes so much stress away when you're like, 'Ugh, I only have one pair of jeans to wash.' It's so nice.''

Instead, the 22-year-old star splits her time between friends' houses.

Asked by talk show host Jimmy Kimmel where she lives, she said:

''Literally on friends' couches.

''I was only here in L.A. for two months, so when you're home you kind of want to soak up faces and places...And then I leave again.''

Shailene previously revealed she doesn't own a mobile phone, but says she has now been forced to have a communications device for work reasons.

She said: ''I do have a phone right now because we've been doing so much press and they were like, 'Shai, we need to be able to get ahold of you, so here's a temporary phone and we've taped the number to the back of it so you won't forget it.' It's kind of hilarious.''
