What are some crazy things you have done to get by when you were poor?
I was thinking about to some of the things we did to get by when we were really poor and down on our luck.
We had a waterbed frame with no waterbed mattress or regular mattress to put in it. So, we put crib mattresses in it to sleep on.
We didn't have a couch, so we stacked a bunch of cardboard boxes and then used crib mattresses for the cushions and back. We would put a fitted sheet around it to make it look like a couch and that is what we sat on...lol.
We used to get the cheap generic hamburger helper from Aldi and eat it with no meat. My ex and I were eating on less than $60/month.
