Necessities means pretty much what you’d think it means - the things that are necessary to maintain your life and lifestyle. So, food, clothing, shelter, utilities, entertainment, transport, education etc. all appropriate to the person’s economic circumstances - bus fare for a poor person, chauffeur drive limousines for the super wealthy.
