Do you not have enough money to buy the things you want?

Do you have not have enough money for the things you NEED?

Are you just plain BROKE?

If you answered "yes" to either of those, this is your place.

We Are Broke is a Livejournal community created specifically for those people out there who feel that their financial situation is not up to par. Granted, if you have a PC with internet access, you probably arent living in the streets. But still, that's sometimes not enough to be pleased.

Membership is open and upon joining, feel free to post about and of the following things:
  • How/why you got broke, or are approaching broke.

  • What things you want to buy, and how much money you'll need to buy them.

  • What sacrifices you may have made, due to lack of funds.

  • Your job and why the pay isn't goon enough.

  • Your lack of a job and why you can't seem to find one.

  • Any and all other money-related issues.

  • We hope you enjoy your stay.
