How much money do you need to live comfortably?

November 25, 2008 8:42am CST
I find that a lot of people are chasing money all the time. Is it an ilness or is it a need? how much money do you really need to live comfortably? What do you really need? a comfortable house or 4-5 a palacial houses? all amenities in teh house and food to eat or a house stuffed with needless junk and tons of food which you willnt really eat? Basically one does nto need that much money as one aims to earn. isn't it greed to hanker after money? Does money really buy you happiness? If money coule buy you happiness then the rich must be the happiest people in the world. i however find that most of the rich people too are not happy. They want more. What is the limit?

The definition of 'comfortably' varies from person to person. So the amount of money needed to live comfortably varies from person to person. As for myself I may say my husband can answer this question.

i just need a home.. a car.. enough money for my bills.. enough money for a vacation here and there (nothing expensive but a few days away) some money to go out to eat or to do something fun every once in awhile and thats about it!! im low maintenance lol.. i do think that some people will never have enough money because there are some that just keep wanting more and more.. i think i will always want more but i guess its because i was raised so poorly i dont ever want to fear for losing things.. i need more money than i have now but nothing insane or an amount that is unrealistic

Maybe I will need 10 Million pesos for me to have a own house and car, and a savings account that will gain interest in the bank monthly. And also my very own business.

Heh... personally, I need very little. A home of any size, water, electricity and heating. A couple of pounds a day to eat. I'm absolutely not materialistic - as long as I have an internet connection and my PC, I'm fine. Books from the library, don't need money to go out (a walk by the sea is easily as good as a night in the pub), just need enough to get by. My partner's another story entirely, though..!!

I was never a material person.I would just to have enough money to live in a comfortable two bedroom home.I would like to be able to have heat and electricity.I would also like to be able to afford meals.I would just like to be stress free and not have to rob peter to pay paul.Everything keeps rising but the paychecks.
