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 kid brought me a flashlight he found in the bathroom and asked what it was doing in there. I said, “It’s in case the power goes out.” He just stared at me like, WTF? And I realized the power was out a lot when I was a kid because we didn’t pay the bill.

My husband keeps flashlights all over the house and now I realize why. Thank you for this thread.

People who've lived through earthquakes or weather disasters also like lots of handy flashlights (and charged phones).
