I don't agree with this . I feel what makes the apartment look ' not cheap' or rich is for the rich and it's. damn boring .

I agree. I think matching is if you want things to match. Eclectic tastes don’t necessarily mean you look poorer. I agree with replacing what is worn out and maybe not being too cluttered.

ok, some of this is right (but I would still not use term "poor"), but most of it is just freaking lie

If by "poor" you mean "homey", yeah - that's it. Some of those thing are right though, but not because they look cheap: burned pans, pots, destroyed things can be harmful, toys always collect dust, nothing new here.

And magnets and other souveniers are total evil! You can't help it buy buy them and then they turn your home into a waste can and you don't have a nerve to throw them away. Total waste of money. Hopefully I'll remeber about it next time I try to buy smth:)

To those of you who judge, shame on you. As long as their home is clean, why should you care what their homes look like? Sometimes folks can't afford any better. Maybe they choose to spend their money elsewhere. Quit being a uptight snob.

If something isn't tendy, it doesn't mean it's time to get rid of that.... Everyone can decorate their home in their own way, I think. I agree that not all of this things look so good at home, but cheap? Come on 🙄

Even weirder, I heard my boyfriends grandma puts her carpet on the walls to look at it and "not ruin it"

Oh ! here in my place we have printed carpets that can be put on walls . Again to stare . Awkward is that most of them have pictures of idols or Gods .

I think the word 'cheap' wasn't a proper one. Like it feels like judging a person's lifestyle

i will never toss ozt a perfectly good pot (or sheet set for that matter) simply because it no longer matches or i need to use a lid ( or pillowcase) in a different design. God save us from SNOBS and people who make so nuch money they get stupid. Or better yet, Lord, send them my way! They can throw some of their extra money at me, they'll take the pats on the back; I'll continue using my usable mismatches and use their money on a fun trip for my family! (Oh yeah-I have a Tacky Magnet Collection to commemorate my travels, and it isnt on my fridge, ONLY because we've just moved in and my Tackies are still in storage! )

i have one more comment...ever since i moved away frm home and into my first apartment i have used hand-me-down towels. Some were as good as new, most were middling, a very few should've been torn up for rags. There was not one complete, matching set (as one would put out for company) but i had plenty to dry myelf, my hair, my hands and my dishes. I always said XWhen I'm rich, I'll get those yummy, fluffy, thick as carpet towels." I always thought if you had enough money that all of your towels were company ready, and you used those yourself, you were officially a grown adult, or you were set and living large. But when I've had the money to spend (big tax refunds, the occasional high dollar scratcher or lotto win) or I've been asked for a gift list at Christmas or my birthday, I never asked for towels. The ones I have are just fine and there are always other things that i would rather have. I can definitely find a better way to spend $20 or more, than on a bath towel.
Oh well. I guess I'm just common. I'm okay with that.
