One side of my family, my mother's, were very poor and have the same attitude to money. My gran is always buying gifts and giving to charity. She is better off now, but she's taken that as a cue that she can be MORE generous. And yes, she is very houseproud, and irons all her clothes which has passed down to my mother and myself (though, I hate ironing).

But honestly, even if it shouldn't have to be that you disguise the "shame" of one's poverty, that generous attitude a million times over my wealthy and tightfisted grandparents who charged my dad rent from his paper round.
