 I have a flat screen and the x box. We had the TV forever, and the x box came from craigslist with games for dirt cheap. All dh had to do was take it apart and put new parts in it. (He can build computers, videos games, pretty much anything).

I have an iPhone.
Had it before I left my husband, he still pays the bill.
Selling it would not help one bit in my situation so I am keeping it.

I am on PA, and have a flatscreen cable and 4g phone. I was 38 weeks pregnant, when my husband became ill. I was already on maternity leave. We went from 60,000 a year to 0.... My son was born, while my husband was still in ICU. I had enough savings for 4 months, but when that ran out, i had to get on PA. I have been looking for a job desperately, but am going to have a hard time with child care, as my husband is slowly getting better, but is unable to lift my son. We paid into the system for years, so i dont feel bad using it for a few months until we get back on our feet. Oh and the reason we have all the material items, we had them pre this mess, and are in contracts with most of it...

 My TV was a gift two Christmases ago from DH's parents. My Wii was a gift from DHs parents three Christmases ago. The Xbox we got back before I was on WIC and we lived in MD (we got it when we were living in TN and the cost of living was much cheaper). WIC is the only PA I qualify for though, and DH is within $25 of the limit.

Don't worry, I'm a broke b!tch.
