How many of you have been poor before?

  • We have been financially poor with bills that were always paid laid and rarely in full. Thanksfully those days are past us (thankfully, I know it could change).

  • LOL, I didn't mean that it is fun being poor.I mean, these questions are just for fun. They have no real purpose.

  • Not me when I was in charge of my own income - but when I lived with my dad, there were times when we went hungry, and times when my feet hurt badly because we couldn't afford to buy bigger shoes as my feet grew.

  • That's how I grew up. Since I have been an adult... no. My husband and I make better decisions than my parents did.

  • Oh yes! I went backpacking cross country in my younger years and I LOVED it! Now I think back on those times and smile :)


    That really was the most liberating thing I have ever felt!

  • I felt poor, but we always had a place to live, clothes to wear and food to eat so no I've never been truly poor.
