43k+ Upvotes: What are the best life hacks for poor people?


I had a roommate in college who compulsively stole toilet paper; that saved us quite a bit. :see_no_evil::hear_no_evil::speak_no_evil:

Poor is a mindset.
As I recently saw Dave Chappelle say in one of his shows that his father told him: “You’re not poor son, you’re broke.” I think this is what he said.
Anyway I believe that. We are what we tell ourselves we are. We are what we believe others tell us we are.


Toilet paper is (almost) a human right.

once you have the basics, it’s a mindset. but without the basics, its hard to maintain a mindset.

I agree about the basics. Basics is always key. A foundation built without the basics hands down, will fall, and fail.
