19 people who grew up poor share the things they used to think were 'normal.'

One of the luxuries of childhood is not being aware of one's own socioeconomic status. Kids who grow up poor still have to deal with a lot of sh*t that middle and upper-class kids don't have to deal with, but they may not realize it at the time. To them, cutting corners and scraping by with very little is just "normal" (although sadly, if we look at the numbers, poverty actually is "normal" in the U.S. and globally).
