Money are not a tease
August 7, 2012 2:24am CST
Lately I am in a period, when money mean nearly nothing to me. I am able to earn online and to provide us good life with my boyfriend, no worries, no delays in paying the bills, daily comfort with the expenses. But lately I feel like this is not enough for me to feel happy. I am having this very bad lack of motivation, because I feel that all the money we make will be lost in paying dept and bills and nothing will be left for us to enjoy life. I am thinking how to change that and get motivated again. I know whatever I do, I just can't provide even one month calmness in our home, because we have old dept waiting for clear. It's not an urgent one, we are not in hurry to pay it, it's not like we will have something shut down because of not paying, but I feel like if I make the money we will put them there and again nothing will be left for us to spend even a month. I wonder to buy a cash box and save coins there or even banknotes, hidden of my boyfriend, so I can surprise him some day, but we are not hiding anything from each other and he as a loyal payer, would ask me if we can spend all we have on bills and have only a small part for us to survive few days ahead.

Well a money box is a good start. I have 2 money boxes. One for all my loose change and the other I use for money that I find on the street. I want to see how much I can find in a year as I go out and about Do you have a day job or are you just working on the internet to make money?

By the responses I receive I feel like I am misunderstood. We have jobs, mine is potentially good one, I am able to do more, my boyfriend also. But the bills are separated on different dates in the month, so every income goes for something. One will go for electricity, another one will go for rent ... and so on.

Umh, i understand your situation. I hope you guys can pass it soon. You can have a piggy bank to save coins and save money in a bank account even with a small money, so that when you are in need, you still have a little money for it. take it easy, everything will be ok, right?

Every normal person will have a short of cash,so I really understand your situation cause I have much experiences about this.Firstly I think you and your boyfriend should find some part-time job to add your money,secondly I think it is the most important,that is to be frugal and spend your money depend on your earing.

HMM I feel the same sometimes, but the money flows. and this flow I guess never stops. It comes and goes. So if you think that after paying off the debt you will be left with nothing then stop thinking that way because money will flow in as well. Life does not stop. Just don't be so low because that they won't come. Stop thinking about it. enjoy today. No one has seen future. and even that day comes, you will be ready to battle it. have a wonderful day.
