Homelessness in the United States: An Ethnographic Look at Consumption Strategies.

This article provides an overview of scholarship on the lived consumption experience of homeless people in the US. Three ethnographic studies are the input for this integration, and the results are expressed thematically to be consistent with this methodological form. Internal dialogue from two short stories concerning single adult males and female-headed families is used to make the themes come alive for the reader. The article concludes with a brief summary of these findings and implications for future homelessness research.
