      -Making Halloween costumes out of household items.

      I was Wonder Woman and totally rocked it out in a red bathing suit with aluminum foil wrist bands. LOL

      -Putting your feet in plastic grocery bags before putting them in your shoe when you are about to go out in snow.

          I used sandwich bags. I was a little kid when I lived where it snows.

            Our drinking glasses were all glasses we either got from McDonalds or Taco Bell, with Mayor McCheese or Loony Tunes characters, or were won in our church's annual Fiesta in those games where you toss a coin into the tower of glassware and whatever your coin lands in, you win.

              We didn't have the money to get those "fancy glasses" from eating out at McDonald's!

              We didn't live in snow country, but I do remember plastic baggies with rubberbands for rain boots. How embarrassing!

                How about using old glass jars as drinking glasses?

                    What about the jelly you could buy and then use the jars as glasses?

                    There are several things listed on here that we still do: Riding quads, tater tot casserole (occasionally), Otter Pops, Sunny D, etc.

                      A Thermos filled with a drink for lunch. From 1st to 8th grade, instead of buying something at school, or bringing a soda, or something along those lines, I had to bring a Thermos filled with a drink. Usually milk, often chocolate milk, sometimes Hi-C.

                        All through elementary school here. One time it leaked on my PB&J sandwich and made it all soupy. I didn't eat it of course, that's icky.

                          O-nut, right there with you!! My mom sent milk in a thermos EVERY DAY!! Ugh, it was humiliating!

                          Funny, back then bringing a lunch was semi-white trash. Now buying a lunch in our neighborhood is way white trash until about 5th grade or middle school.

                            My kids have always bought school lunches (yet another white trash thing we have always done). :lol: We are still doing this with our youngest (oldest has graduated) but now it's totally cool because he is in high school and can go off-campus to buy lunch.

                              What about the day-after bakery? DOes that count?

                              To live would be an awfully big adventure.

                                  At least they weren't the kids that had to buy their lunch with a blue ticket. There were alot of those in my elementary school.

                                      I was trying to give them an excuse for not knowing what real Mexican food really is, but nope. Californians have no excuse.
