We’re still young, and so our income is from part-time jobs while we go to school, but Future Brother-In-Law & Future Sister-In-Law, who are both graduated but haven’t had luck finding good jobs, seem to think we’re snobby. This is mainly because we live in the city (where we go to school) where apartment buildings are sometimes named, and we tend to buy clothes and shoes off of Ebay rather than buying from Payless, etc like they do. We always get comments like, “well my dress isn’t nice like Lilyfaith’s, but…” when half the time my dress is used and $20-$30. 

I honestly don’t know how to deal with it other than to shrug it off and clarify that, yes, we do have to watch our money. We don’t eat out, we don’t have cable, we don’t even have a TV except for their old one from their college days. But somehow, because we live in a building with a “snobby name” we’re the snooty ones. Grr..
