Living (Apart But) Together With the Extended Family in Economically Challenging Times; the Case of Greek Consumers’ Experiences

Research has overlooked how the changing family forms/living arrangements influence low-income consumers’ experiences. This phenomenological study examined Greek consumers’ transition into lower consumption levels. Support within the extended family coloured consumption experiences. Living (apart but) together with their extended family, respondents experienced possessions/products/activities as agents that help or hinder coping.
