I am earning 80-100$ in a week now and that's only for extra money and save some for trips in holiday or so on, because I am still a student and living with my parents so there are not much that I need to pay. But I am hoping to earn more like 200$ a week or something like that, so I will have more money to spend / save ^^

At the moment, I get about 300 dollars a month, which is just enough to make ends meet: no eating or going out, no new clothes every week, no extra money to save. (and I don't pay rent!) I wish I made twice as much, that would be great, so I can start saving. In my country the average salary is about 350-400 dollars, but lots of people get less than that. As I said, what i get is just enough because I don't have to pay rent or mortgage, a regular two-bedroom house or apartment is anything between 150 to 300 dollars a month! Go figure! I can't complain though, cause I have a nice life overall, but I miss going out to the movies and such, like when I was living with my parents and didn't have to pay for anything! Now I'm happily "married" and with a small child, so as far as we can cover up our basics, food, clothing, cable tv (humans need entertainment!) I'm ok.

To be happy, I need nothing. To me, money represents freedom, so I will set an amount of how much I would like to feel free. I would like, and intend to make 10,000 a month to begin with. I have a business that has the potential to make that kind of money, so I will start there :)

I am a student and surf the web in my pass time to earn some cash,learning web designing too.If i will get 40$ a week i will satisfy but it's human nature the more you get the more want that applies here in my case also,but i know without hard work i will not get a single penny, so i am just doing it ,and i hope will get that margin soon.

I'm retired from the military and living on that alone right now, which isn't much. I'd be happy with anything extra at this point, even $50 a week ($100 would be more like it, though).

i work on building sites so i get cash in hand every day, so for me it is probably between £30 to £40 a day for me to feel realy satisfied. But it all depends on how much was done that day, somedays i could work non-stop and get £40 and others i could have a easy slow day and still get about £30 lol

Right now $200.00 would be suitable for me. I have been paid as much as $700.00 every two weeks and that was exciting but as far as I am concerned $200.00 every pay period would be very nice.
