the only reason why i would want to make extra money is so that i can feel like i'm contributing to my family. i know that my husband believes that he should be the soul provider and all of that, but sometimes i feel guilty staying at home raising three kids and not bringing any money in and spending some on the kids with his money. i know that once you are married everything becomes ours instead of mine and his, but sometimes i still feel guilty although i am contributing in another great way by raising our kids and being able to be here when my oldest two get home from school. he doesn't ever say anything about it and loves me being home, but sometimes i feel he gets stressed cause he can't get us everything we would like to have. to me though, having family is so much more important than material things. God bless

Yeah family is important, that and health, but a little bit of financial freedom wouldn't go a miss!!

financial freedom would always be a plus, but to be honest money's not an issue for us. we struggle sometimes, but we are happy and our kids are happy and that is all that matters to us. my husband is a very hard worker and will work two jobs if he has to just for me to be able to stay home with our kids. i try doing stuff to make extra money online, but it's really not about the money, especially here on mylot. i love the people on here more than anything. God bless

Any money I earn through my computer is comletely estra for me. It is also in dollars and I use Euros here in Italy. I hope to visit my sister in USA and use my extra dollars there and for this reason I will not be exchanging them (and losing) into Euros.

That's the only thing with different conversion rates of cash, you could lose money in one part of the world or gain some more at the other end of the world, currency conversion does my head in, but visiting family is a good reason to earn some extra money!

A great philosopher once said "Money is a barrier against all possible evils." Let's explore and expand on this thought. Money can prevent the sufferings that come with poverty like cold and hunger. While sickness can not be totally obliterated by money, it can be considerably relieved by it. Giving away money to charity can also provide us with the satisfaction of relieving others from suffering. With money, we can obtain an advanced education that may aid us in the development of genius and extraordinary achievements. It gives us the leisure to devote a part of our time to culture and art. Money can provide a powerful diversion for all or our troubles by permitting distraction from the anxieties that assail us.

It is just a great way for me to be financially independent at ant early age. I do not want to be caught up in debt. Most americans use some many credit cards like is not even that serious. Money is good but it does change everything. Money is something that is just a value to us. Money can help get what we want here on earth, and usually it takes money to make money.
