Well for me its not all money that makes me happy but it sure helps. I love waking up known I have anywhere for 100 to 500 in my pocket. Its when I dont have any then Im not so happy.

I forget where I heard the quote but here goes... " Money does not bring happiness. But it helps." And that purchasing power is determinant of how most of us operate. That excitement when you have a new gadget, or a new bag. Or getting a wonderful household furniture or appliance. Whatever it is, as long as it is a well-thought-of,perfectly-chosen buy, it makes us find that spark.

Money doesn't make me happy... my family does. But the lack of money makes me stressed, which of course makes inhibits true happiness, lol.

Somehow it does. I can relate to that feeling of knowing at least you've got a hundred or five hundred to use for the day. It just sucks to not get around 'cause there's not enough cash to do the things you need or want to do. But of course, I'm aware that money can't buy you all the happiness, for there are things far more important than money--family...friends...life.

well i think it would be a relief to have some extra money because due to a lack of a job, we are in quite a bit of debt...so instead of being in debt up to our neck, it would only be up to our ankles...lol

I don't think money makes me all happy. It does help to have it because then you aren't worrying about how to pay bills. But I guess money does make me somewhat happy because I'm happy knowing that I have money to eat and pay bills.
