Former poor kids: what are some things you have in your house that you *never* had as a kid, things your not-poor friends would never consider luxuries?

My grandmother told me she was an adult before she ever heard of not liking a food. If there was food, you ate it.

OMG, this. You NEVER complained about food served to you because at least you were eating that day.

I grew up in this situation but because I had ARFID (picky eating but the psychological disorder of it) I just didn't eat. I was berated for it and it was traumatizing. I hate how poverty teaches this.

Right? I never knew you could turn your nose up at food until I witnessed it at a friend's house. Even then I'd feel too ashamed to ever refuse a meal. I ate what my mama made and never complained.

My Mother-in-law ate beaver tales that the local fur trappers anonymously dropped off at their family home as food was so tight. Too poor to be picky.

If we didn't finish our plates we got whipped with a belt for wasting food. I can't stand the thought of beans and cornbread. Not once as an adult have I willingly made a pot of soup beans. I just can't.
