What the poorest you've ever been??

We have had to choose between rent and food many times.

When I was at college. I are beans on toast, ramen and baked potatoes for three years.

That was so I could afford to go out but it's the poorest I've been.

I am pretty poor now. The other day I had 16 cents in my account. We have always had money, this is new for us.

I've never been poor. I've lived like I was while doing service in impoverishes countries, I know what really poverty is, but I've never been poor.

When I was in college there were periods of time where I was babysitting in the evenings for a waitress in exchange for food. She would bring me home a bunch of meals from work at the end of the night and I put them in my mini-fridge for the week. Fun times. It was ok though since all I did was  sit at her house and study.

Living by myself after I left my first husband. My car was crap and I couldn't afford to fix it or get a new one until I got a 2nd job. I was making $10.00 an hour as a vet office manager. I paid rent and bills ok but I really had to budget.

We lived in a homeless shelter when I was in 1st grade. I'd say then.

I would say right now is the poorest we've ever been.

My husband joined the Air Force last July and was medically discharged due to an injury sustained during Basic Training. When he first came back home (at the end of October), he was unable to work for a few weeks, due to his ankle injury. It has been a struggle for us to get back on our feet since then.
