The trick is to pretend that you’re not poor. This is what people say when they are broke but don’t want you to know:
I’m on a diet. Besides, this dish is oily.
Aamby Valley is so overrated.
I don’t need to wear big brands. Or any brand. I am too cool for that.
Who needs money when you have coupons? Haven’t you seen the deals?
Yes, I’ve been wearing the same jeans for two months. They fit me so well.
I enjoy leftovers. Yes, I do.
No, I don’t need a haircut. This hairstyle suits me.
I love my Nokia 3300. I love simpler times.
