A cardboard box can be a a desk too

A large part of the AmeriCorp VISTA experience involves living near the poverty line. I make a whopping $475 every 2 weeks after taxes. For the last few months, my desk was simply a cardboard box that my mattress was shipped in.

After many months of frugal living, I was able to save up and purchase a real-life IKEA desk. I think it looks much nicer than my cardboard box. It’s also more comfortable since I have a place to put my legs.
