1. You ask your boyfriend to color your hair with drugstore product. You have to end the pretense that you are not partially grey. oh the “horror, the pain, the inhumanity” NY accent needed
2. You understand why packages in stores are open and one aspirin; one diaper; and YUCK one sanitary napkin are missing,
3. You borrow from your dogs piggy bank. Only before payday and promise to pay them back. They don’t care as long as they get to walk every day. You feel guilty so give them an extra walk
4. You start using all the small shampoos from you past trips. You call it frugal but some of those hotels should use better stuff and at least you once took trips
5, You stop shopping completely and wonder why so many people need to have stuff you seem not to need. I read that 90% of stuff in stores is not a need but a want. I need to not want stuff
6, DIY is not just a term. You have to do everything yourself. My boyfriend is an IT specialist not a plumber darn it
7.You pay for your organic food with change from before mentioned dogs piggy bank. You should see the look on the cashiers face. ah so what who cares?
You are smart enough to realize being poor isn’t so bad if you still have a boyfriend, dogs and a roof over your head. and gratitude in your heart
