(VIDEO) WHEN WE WERE POOR
John Cullum and Em remember when they bought a second-hand television set, had to walk, rather than spent money on the subway -- days when they didn't even have money for phone calls.
They describe their first Christmas -- how they promised not to spend more than $5 on gifts -- how chuck steak meals helped them save money on groceries.
They explain how Emily, administrator of her newly formed dance company, managed to pay off a fine she got from the Internal Revenue Service.
