We had something like this. White bread slices, ketchup and that free cheese they used to give out to people who stood in line. Yummy! Of course, I loved anything if there was enough ketchup on it
In many of the places we lived, we often heated with the cookstove whether it was gas or electric. Just turned it on and left the door open to heat part of the house. Had to create outrageous electric bills.
We kept warm by sleeping in with multiple people in the bed. I love my sister to pieces but she was awful to sleep with. One of those people who kick and poke in their sleep. My brothers were better as long as they didn't pee the bed .... ewwwww. But, we kept warm and we're all still here
My mom often went to places that could help out, clothes closets, free food lines and other places that gave away food. I hated the clothes from the clothes closets because I so wanted to wear cool clothes like the other kids. No one ever gave away anything "cool" in my size
Any of you wear socks for mittens and bread bags over your shoes in the snow?
