My boyfriend and I are so different when it comes to money. If I have $150 in the bank, then I am really happy, unless I have a high amount of bills. However, if he has $150 or even $200, then he considers himself broke and gets all worried. I know that its not a lot of money in today's world, but money isn't everything.

Compared to all the the bills I have and the amount of my rent, and the cost of food, I would consider myself broke if I only had $150.00. Really that is about the amount I have, and I am in a pickle, because I will not be able to pay my bills this month You must be very young without many responsibilities.

I will consider myself broke if I have only $150- 200 in the bank. This is only enough to cover my food expenses for another month.

heck no, Do you have ANY idea what that buys at a thrift shop? *grins* I'm use to not having an allowance or other income usually I only get a little change about once a week for taking moms packages to the post office for her, so yeah, I'm use to not even having 1 dollar broke. I would have a BALL with 150$ I'd start a website, and buy a camera, and get something going on there, I could start a business for that much, He really doesnt see the potential in 150$ does he? thats A LOT of money and can be made into A LOT more money :P

I would consider myself to be in extreme poverty if I only had $150. There really isn't too much that you can do with that. If you have all your needs met, or enough to cover all of your expenses, $150 would be great to have just as spending money (and not on gas). You could buy some new clothes, or shoes... or something you wanted I guess. I get very worried too, if I see that I don't have enough money saved. I try to keep a certain amt. in my accts. all times, because you never really know what can happen. Anything could come up.

$150-$200 is better than $0 but you're right it isn't much these days. I would consider myself broke if only had $200 in the bank. But I have two kids and a house payment, car payment etc. When you're younger things look a little different. Have a nice day!
