some of the poverty mentality roadblocks actually helps the poor survive

I have no idea how people can make it on $500 a month but it's probably the laser focus on the here and now that makes it work

I keep telling y'all...I'm only frugal with my own money. I know how to spend other people's money quite well.

And nope, I have a honda civic...have had for 12 years now. I do live rent free though and  I enjoy all the free luxury items I get. I said that in the parents buying you things thread the other day.

Ashamed maybe, but comfy definitely.

My civic is so old it still has a tape player. But I love it. I'm getting a new something though...don't know what yet.

But I certainly do not turn down the keys to any of the other cars at my disposal. Shoot I loves me some satellite radio, good air conditioning, and heated and massaged booty cheeks while driving.

wow...but not surprised.  celine bags, louis bags, burberry jackets and living in the projects?  but if bhm didn't know about her shopping habit and she chose to have 3 kids while living in the projects and working minimum wage or not working, that would be okay according to BHM.  i dont know the difference between buying expensive things you can't afford and having kids you can't afford.
oooo weeee!!  *sips grape juice*

Being poor doesn't stop anyone from recognizing, appreciating and wanting good quality items.
The practice of wanting the seemingly unattainable is what drives sales.

It shows the underlying classism and how people behave towards those they think are poor than them. Some of the threads in the past have showed this, with comments like "1000 dollar shoes 50 dollar outfit" in the past whilst conveniently forgetting that poor is a synonym for black

And I also find funny that no one wants anyone to tell them what to do with their money but would happily tell someone they perceive poor what to do with theirs

And poor is subjective

As you were

Oh wait lol

do you feel like certain age.. or work statuses should go along with this? 

like is it okay for a youngish student..? 
or should that student have her own apartment in your opinion..? 
are you talking about like 26yr olds with jobs.. and not in school..?
