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?

The ability to buy what we need, when we need it, without having to figure out what other thing has to be cut. If my kid needs clothes, I can buy them without worrying that we might not be able to afford food.

Replying to @sebejer
Yes! And being able to buy something you might need later while it’s on sale!

My husband grew up poor and to a certain extent, I did too. I remember eating soup and pasta for dinner most days and only having a few pairs of shoes. I wore hand me down clothing too. Now, I will buy my son's clothes that I know he won't fit until next year. I can't help it.

Yes. Shoes that fit when feet grow. Shoes were always bought a size too big& worn until they were too small. Replacing glasses when prescriptions change or God forbid they break/get lost. Not having to give something up because I got sick& needed a prescription.
