Am I actually more broke than I thinkWatch this thread
I was whizzing around a Shopping mall when I randomly happened to look into a shop and I saw this T-shirt. I attached an image below but it looks like a normal average T-Shirt. Yet it’s £100!
Is that a rip off? Or am I actually broke. I mean like, if I bought one for my family that’s £700. I could even buy a cheap car with that money!
Sorry here’s the photo attachment.
After paying for accomodation costs, most students in similar circumstances have limited monthly budgets available for things like food and clothes.
New branded garments from upmarket designer companies like Hugo Boss and Armani priced above £60 are generally outside of the average uni home students budgets.
The opposite can happen when you pick up a top for £1.50 in Primark. It doesn’t make you rich.
Hugo boss is traditionally an expensive brand. The majority of people don’t own designer items, or maybe have 1 or 2 as birthday or Christmas presents.
Your average joe doesn’t go and buy a £100 shirt regularly.
If you really want to determine if you’re “broke” ask yourself can you afford your essentials like rent food bills travel costs etc. They’re the things people use to assess their financial situation not luxury goods.
