Well, you know as they say one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. A lot of people grew up with little money (just like me) and a lot of things felt like a luxury. For example having Nintendo always felt like a luxury to me. In the below discussion people have shared what they have always thought it was a luxury and really felt that way to them. You can read the whole discussion on Reddit.
1. The Shower

3. Eating at a restaurant
I can bet that most people remember the luxury of eating out at a restaurant.
Well, back in the days a lot of people thought that eating in McDonald’s was really good and a lot of people couldn’t afford it, but honestly most people didn’t even know what happens with your health when you eat it every day.

Back in the days the kids who couldn’t afford being in the school camp had to wait for the others to come back which I didn’t really liked a lot.
