When people have a lot of money, they can be a bit out of touch with reality… which can be infuriating to the majority who don’t have windfalls of cash. Redditor u/-holdmyhand seems to have experienced this, taking to the Ask Reddit subreddit to ask others “What are things poor people know that rich people don’t?” People had a ton to share!
- "How long you can really eat stuff past the expiration date."
- "A need to choose which bill you're gonna pay: electricity, phone, or something else."
- "1,001 ways to prepare a potato."
- "Keeping loose change in a jar and taking it to the bank to cash it in. When it’s the end of the month and my bank account is coughing dust, it can be a lifesaver."
- "Keeping a few packages of ramen and rice in the house for when times get rough."
- "How to get all the peanut butter out of the jar."
- "Using coupons and getting excited that you saved a whole $5."
