Being Broke is a Relative Thing

Being broke is definitely a relative thing. I was working and had a paycheck every two weeks. It wasn't a lot, but I could pay my bills, buy gas for my car, the basics. Then I was laid off, and on unemployment. I got about half of what I had before, but I didn't have the expense of driving to work every day. I had more time to shop carefully and prepare meals from scratch. I didn’t need to buy work clothes. I didn’t buy candy or soda from the break room. I didn’t get lunch at the deli or fast food. Somehow, I got by on half as much.
