Welcome, fellow paupers. This forum is to discuss the issues surrounding being poor.

This is not a community to advertise get rich quick schemes or gather clicks for free ipod pyramid schemes. These things generally take advantage of poor people and have no place here

This is also not a place to ask for financial assistance. This is a community of poor people, we do not have any money to give you.

Bargain hunting, dealing with slumlords, getting fired, finding a McJob, trying to make ends meet, coping methods, and the like are valid subjects here.

This community was created by neitherday.
