Sometimes I felt that I am earning very less and I have to find ways to earn extra money. Have you ever felt that you need to earn more money rather than you are earning right now to support yourself?

Money doesn't matter an awful lot to me, but yes, we need to survive in some capacity, and quite often, the cost of living goes up and we could all do with a little more to simply get through comfortably. I don't really place a lot of importance on it though. Brightest Blessings.

I also think the cost of living is going up now a days and one should try to find methods of finding additional earnings.

I also think we need to tailor our budget to make our life better and also need to save money for the future. I think it is always good to cut down unnecessary expenses in life.

Heck yah!!!! :) Often lately, which is sad. I have looked into different ways to earn money, but either they don't seem to work for what I need, or are not profitable or legitimate grrrrr I have to keep thinking and trying specially now because my plans need some extra money to be implemented.

Only everyday of my life, ajithlal, LOL! I am more fortunate than many people in that I grew up very poor, and of goodly parents that taught me to survive honorably during the best and worst of times. They also taught me to share my gain with others. I feel richer than Kings and Queens and Oprah because the knowledge and skills provided me by my parents is truly recession-proof. I have a lovely little family, I have relative good health, have nice friends, there is always something to place on my table and I am truly a happy person; is there any other more rich than I, no I do not think it possible. As for earning more money, the amount is only limited by my diligence and affordable time. I work at a hotel; I am an independent business owner and marketing contractor; I earn a bit online as well; there are no complaints about what I have been blessed to earn. If we seek opportunities, they will find us. I hope your feeling of gain grows, and may you soon find true financial happiness.

I have always felt that way. I now get a pension, but I remember the times when I did not have it, and I saw the things that I needed and I could not get them. And even though my husband and I have pensions, I feel that I have to make up for what income I never made enough of while I was working. So I want to make more money now to compensate for the little I made before.

I think we can get extra money by doing extra works and small works and save money from unnecessary uses and use it for the future.

When I was a student, I never think that I will earn less money. After my graduation, I realize that money is so important for me. If without money, I can not live on the earth, for I can not seek for help from parents.By now, I have gotten a fixed job, but earns less, for better future, I must spend my spare time on finding a part-time job, so I do. However, I can not feel enough since my poor life, I even do not save money. So sad! Well, come on!

Since October of 1998, when I lost the best job of my life at the end of Aug (we get paid a month behind, so it was the beginning of Oct. before the checks ran out), I have not had enough money until the past month. I have three part-time jobs and I finally made enough money for the month I'm in. I've maxed out three credit cards and used $20 thousand in savings since then just to pay bills, buy food, and do the things I need to do. I don't know how I'm going to make it to retirement in 3 3/4 yrs.

I always feel this way, and I am afraid I'll always feel poor. With hard work though, I might just make it to the other side, right? Yeah...

I didn't think this way a couple of years ago. But now i am married. I have to take responsibilities and support my family. My salary is low, so lately I worried about how to improve my revenue. It's not easy,especially under current global financial recession. I don't to make money through incorrect ways,that would hurt other people. Maybe richness is just a dream for me in my life.

I think when a person works hard he or she has more ability to learn money. I would suggest you to spend wisely and also to work hard and most probably you will be able to earn money. God bless you.

I've been trying many places to earn online but they didn't help me much and instead truned out to be a waste of time, I'm in short of finance now and in dilemma if I should continue this way while learing or simply drop these all to get a normal job.

You should go to hunt a normal job. There're too much cheaters online. Don't expect to earn money quickly at the moment. A great people bear the same idea as you. So,do you think you can make lots of money this way? for some, they does. However, for the majority of people, it's only a dream. be realistic and down-to-earth. just work hard,may be opportunities fall on your head. hehe!

I also think you should go for a normal job rather than online jobs. Most times the online jobs are not stable while the normal job gives more pay and more job security. Also you can mingle with people in your job.

Yes, I felt that every cent of what I eran just pass through my hand because all on my money goes to different payment - utilities, credit card bill, insurance, etc. All my salary goes to utilities and I really hope that I have extra cash. Anways, despite the complain of not having more. I am just thankful for I have enough to spare.

I am always feeling this. I don't know when was the time that I felt I have enough money. I never had enough money. I know I should be grateful for all the things I have in my life but I just cannot be contented with what I am earning especially right now, I'm totally broke.

To earn some money are never been enough for me. But i always try accept that and also keep trying to gain more of it because i'm not only supporting my own self. There is wife and kids that makes me to work hard. Each year to come will be more difficult to live if i don't try to earn more money and save it for the future.

Money is something everyone has, needs, and does not know how to manage. If we are able to restrict our needs then we can be happy with what we earn. Always have a good habit of saving. Live today for tomorrow, do not live today for today.

I think that I have never felt that I have sufficient money with me. This is not only wiht me but almost everybody thinks like that only. Evenif the person is very rich, he/she will be feeling that the money he/she is having is not enough. I think that this happens with most of the people because, our needs are increasing one after the other. As soon as first wish is fulfilled the next one arises and so the need for more and more money continue to rise.

Conditions such as now make a lot of people, including me to work hard to get extra money. Impact of global financial crisis is that many people lost their jobs and lead to loss of earnings. We must utilize every available opportunity to get a decent income. No one can predict what will happen tomorow, so we must always be ready with all conditions.

I also think we cannot predict the future and we should save money for the future. There is an old saying... On good times when you plant 10 trees, you will be able to eat fruits from it during the bad times.

yeah, i always feel that because what i earn is just enough for me and my family. I can't even buy things directly because i have to think first of our basic needs. That's why i look for some ways to earn money to satisfy my needs and wants. Much better if i have more than enough money so that i have some savings just in case of emergency. I always tell my family members to really take care of their health because its a great expense if anyone in the family will get sick. But after all, life is good and i'm happy just to be with my family despite the hardship we encounter and we still manage to smile and laugh.hehe
