Reading these boards can make 'the rest of us' feel horrid sometimes.
This is a really old thread....over six months old.

As for Budget Boarders being unusual...well, maybe a bit.

The original thread asked posters to give their opinion of what it means to "be able to afford things"...

The poster you quoted...in credit card debt, car debt, student loan debt, upside down in her home.....yes, there are an awful lot of Americans in that boat. I'm sorry that reading these boards makes you feel "horrid". I'm sure nobody intends to make anyone feel that way by sharing their stories of frugality or financial success.

I took a few psych classes way back when, and one term stuck with me..."No person can *make* you feel a certain way". *You're* feeling that way for a reason. Probably because you're not happy with where you are financially? I'm just guessing.
