I wouldn't class myself as poor. I have three pairs of C&Js and 4 bespoken shirts. But now that my savings are gone after rent, council tax and bills I have a budget of Â£30 per week. I had exams this week which resulted in an oyster expense of Â£20. I then spent Â£10 after my last exam in the pub. And had to buy bog roll etc. for the flat. Point is, I am now -Â£15 budget-wise and will have to spend another Â£20 getting to uni. My last weekly food shop came in at Â£7.20. This food has to last a couple of weeks before I can buy more to clear the deficit. At some point I'll have to buy books for uni. I don't have a bed, I sleep on a single mattress on the floor, I want to change this by somehow saving Â£10 each week from my budget. This isn't Haiti-poor or even poor at all. But how poor are you? And what's the poorest you've ever been? Discuss.
