A writer and publicist named Victoria Barrett recently posed a very interesting question to people on Twitter and it started a thread that was very revealing about how people view money and possessions.

Here’s what Barrett asked the Twitter-verse.

Let’s see what people had to say.

1. Barrett offered a few of her own.

Missing the essentials.

2. A lot of the basics.

Sounds like it was tough.

3. Real veggies.

Not the canned stuff.

4. The comfort of certainty.

That must be a relief.

5. The little things.

They’re pretty important once you have them.

6. Actual tissue paper.

Using old napkins.

7. Taking care of pets.

Makes her want to cry.

8. Enough food…

Going hungry is no good.

9. Mismatched stuff.

But not anymore…

10. The stuff you need.

And that every female should have.

11. For rich folks?

Not exactly…

12. For the kids.

That’s a nice story.

Money sure is strange, huh?
