The Difference Between Being Broke and Being Poor

“Everyone I’ve ever talked to who has been poor and who isn’t anymore has the same story of the moment they realized they were no longer poor: grocery shopping.

Mine came when I was loading my groceries onto the cashier belt and realized I hadn’t done the math.”

—Erynn Brook with illustrations by Emily Flake. “The Difference Between Being Broke and Being Poor.” Longreads.com. June 12, 2018.
