Grabbed this from Kris' feed. I remember seeing it when I was opening tabs for Scalzi's blog yesterday, I must have inadvertently closed it.

Being Poor

Some of those really hit home. Things were pretty tight growing up -- not as poor as many, obviously -- but I remember powdered milk and poor kid lunch tickets. Required reading for sure.

Agreed. This is a fantastic insight into the mindset of being poor.

We were lower middle class, I'd say. We were lucky enough I didn't have to get used underwear, but I wore used clothes.

I wasn't genuinely poor. But I still learned a lot of the poor mindset-and carry it into today.
