anchoring with a cruiser lifestyle

So, things are moving along nicely with my goal of being a live aboard oceanic east coast cruiser within the next year, but i wanted to steal some more knowledge from yall.

What is the deal with anchoring ? I have heard from multiple people anchoring is not chargeable in the USA, and as i am on a really tight budget and have NO problems being alone and dingy-ing in to land to get fresh water and take a break, is strictly anchoring rather than paying for docking and moorings a legitimate possibility?

If it is, what are peoples opinions on the most permanent ways of anchoring for a few days at a time? and possibly even leaving the boat during that time overnight? is that just crazy talk? Mushroom anchors and multiple danforths as well?

gotta run at work, will write back more later. I am just asking because looking at what it would cost to actually dock/moore whenever i needed a break or get away from weather the prices are absolutely astronomical, at least 50 bucks a day on most moors/docks. That is just... absurd unless you are loaded with cash.
