A Few of the Things Being Poor Does to Your Mind  

There is a logic poor people operate by that won't be obvious to people who've never struggled financially for basic necessities.

they make perfect sense to me. when you don't have the money to get what you *need*, it kinda makes you go loopy when you're able to get what you *want*.

and it's kinda like depression in the way that if you've never been there, you really can't understand what it's like.

I did get to a place where it was easier to save money, after a few years of having it and dealing with all of the unmet needs like clothing, dental care and so on.

that's what i miss about wal-mart layaway. not the layaway they had at christmas last year but the traditional layaway they used to have. it used to be the only way i ever got new clothes or new items for the apartment.
