We weren’t really poor when I was young but - there were 6 kids - so I can relate to a lot of these.

One year I got a used ten speed. Loved it. Of course mine looked like a french fairy. Lots of the wrong color.

#4 Clothes from a store... and not the giant black garbage bags that people would leave on our doorstep for us (6 siblings). Size was a gamble.

#7 Toilet paper... for years only old newspaper or magazines were available... IF the water was turned on and the pipes not broken, or frozen.

#14 After School activities too. Got to join soccer league once, went to all the practices, but parents never bothered to find out when games were happening, never got to playing one.

Seafood...
Always thought anything from the ocean was for rich people. Cheap pollock "Fishsticks", were the closest to seafood I ever got until literally moving next to ocean.
