How much money is enough money?
December 15, 2010 1:25am CST
These days people never seem to have enough money... some have good jobs that pay well but still try to think of ways to make more money... Some people live to make money and can not enjoy any activity that does not earn them money... How much money would you consider enough money to stop? Enough money to buy a HOUSE? Or to pay for your children's TUITION? Or is money NEVER ENOUGH?

I have an abundance of money. I have enough money to buy a four bedroom two bath home with a pool. I have enough money to put food on the table for my family and have a dinner out once a week. I have enough money to keep my van full of gas, and well maintained. I have enough money to take my kids on a family vacation in our state for one week in the summer. I also have enough money to give to the charity of my choice (March of Dimes) and I have enough money just to keep my house furnished with a few nice things. I have more than enough money and I am willing to share....that is how much money is enough.

That depends on every individuals, their needs and their wishes. for me enough money is , the amount which can solve all of my problems within one day is enough money. At the moment I need money to solve the problem, not enjoy the problem.

nowadys, because of the economical crises, money is not enough for daily expenses, so people wants to earn more money to fulfil their needs. but some people are greedy if they have enough money, but they want more and more, it depends upon the nature of a person.

Hello friend, that's good question... The money are never enough, because we live in dept, this is the one reason. People have bank credits, loan money from their friends, rent houses or apartments and always HAS TO GIVE TO SOMEONE. This is why the money are never enough ... I can give you an example with me. I made this month until now 550$, BUT .. we had rent and a half to pay and we did it 350$ electricity - 100$ with the other money we could buy food and stuff. Money are never enough for people, who has credits, who live rented life, like we do. I don't now how much we have to do, so the money to be enough. And specially if we are late with the bills, as we really are, it's getting more and more hard. Me and my boyfriend are not greedy people, we can live with little money, modest amount, just our expenses are a lot specially the bank credits.

You will never reach a state in life time where you will think that i have enough money. When you don't have some thing you will struggle to buy it.When you have it, you will find another and you will again struggle for it. It is like drinking salty water ti quench your thirst. The more you drink, the more thirsty you are. Best way is to be contented with what we have.

It depends very much on your circumstances, I think. The problem is that the needs usually increase when we make more, since we get more expensive habits and so on. So in a lot of people's cases, there is never enough money, sadly. I think if you have a place to live that is your own and you do not need to worry about money all the time, then you have enough, but that is just me.

Enough money should be when you have enough to spend on what you need, some to spend on leisurely things and also some spare to save up for emergecies / long term etc. I cannt understand how people can feel insecure when they're making millions and millions already and still need more, or perhaps they just get a kick from making their millions - like 1 million is only 'one' but to be able to make 10 million or 20 million gives them a good 'kick'...

Some does have a lot of money, and i think that is really enough... for them eve if they would share a coupke of hundreds to us. haha i mean if they did we all could have enough. ;P Well anyway for some, the money they have isn't enough because what they need is more than what their salaries can pay for.

I don't think there is much money as enough money many people earn money but they still want more money. With increase in income people are going for more amenities and standard of living so there is nothing as enough money for them of course for me also

I would pick the last answer. Money is never enough, whether for any type of person. Myself, I have to admit, money would be never enough for me. I would want to get more and more. Because that is our human nature. We are the greedy ones, and we don't have enough of anything.

Having enough money is relative to a person. You might have $100 and for you it is more than enough since you live a simple life. Or you might have $10000 but is never enough because you live lucratively. It depends on how you live your life.

You know with the economy being the way it is, a person can always use more, but there is where the problems lies, because the more we make, the more we want to make. The thing of it is, it costs more than it used to, so unless you make enough, you are always going to want more to compensate. Now, I would be happy to make enough to meet my needs and maybe a bit more, and that would be satisfactory. I don't intend to get rich nor do I want to be rich, as I just want to live comfortably. The thing of it is being rich can cause problems too, as one can have plenty of money, but it still nto be enough, and then everyone and his brother will try to get some it it. I just want to be able to give to my church and still have enough to payu my bills and a little extra. good luck to you and happy mylotting.
