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?

This. Going out to eat was a rare luxury. People still don’t understand why I like to take my kids out to eat, but to me, it’s the ultimate sign that I can provide for my kids. It was something I never had growing up.

I only found this out when I was older, but families from church kept inviting out for lunch with them after service and my mom declined because we couldn't afford to. So they got together and took turns giving my mom sewing jobs (hemming pants or dresses, repairing rips, etc.)

So that she could do some quick jobs and make enough that we could go out with them.

Co signed Eating at a restaurant was a once-a-year or once every-other-year sometimes event I never got to eat fast food, it was an extreme delicacy all the other kids would tell me about

My mother would not take me out to eat until she was sure I would behave in a restaurant. She had waited tables and saw the danger and annoyance from a different perspective.
