Why do you think money goes so fast?

It takes a lot of work and time to make money for the majority of people. Especially in different countries. But the cost of living is so high. It can be so frustrating. Because it takes us awhile to earn that and yet when the bills come it goes so fast.

Well what you said is true living is high and you have to mark sure that you pay everything that you need. I mean money goes fast because there are things that we may need after some time. I know i have kids so my money goes quick and it goes faster than I make haha. Yeah the cost of living is crazy and money is just something that comes and goes, but you have to have a good saving bond if you want to keep more. We save now and spend less.

I agree with you. Even with living a simple life there are so many things that we need. Every week their are household items that we need, as well a food that we need. And cost of that really does add up. It is good to save and spend less. That is what I'm working on doing. When I was younger I didn't appreciate savings. But now I know how important it is and I'm working on it.

Sometimes, the amount of time we spend in working is less than the amount that we really need. So, basically, whatever we have earned no matter how much time we spend, but with a lot of things to pay for is just not enough.

Yes I completely agree with you. I often feel like I can never get ahead.No matter how hard I work, or how late I stay up trying to earn online when big bills or surprise bills come up i feel like it is all for nothing because it is often gone way before it even hits my hand. It is sad that things are this way.

I think that all of what you just said is good reason for most to be on sites like this one trying to make some extra $. And that is why it is smart to find programs that help to bring down the bills. Like the utilities and averaging out the cost of electricity and such. There are way to economize if we search for them.

Yeah I agree with you. We definitely have to find ways to economize. Because the cost of living is too high while we don't make that much. Things like this causes so many families to be under financial stress and that affects the family relationships as well. I'm glad that I'm able to find some sites online where I can earn some extra money.

When you have more bills than you have money coming in, that can cause it to really fast. I am on a fixed income, so having that really helps, as what I make online is so small, it doesn't do much. I still keep trying to earn more though as I need all I can get my hands on. I hope to find something eventually, that will give me more money, and not get scammed in the process, as I have been scammed before. Take care, and have a very good day.

Yeah I completely agree with you. And most people generally have more bills coming in than income. Or that their income is quit small even though they may work long hours. These types of things can really be draining on individuals and families and emotionally. Causing them to get depressed about their lot in life. I understand what you mean about trying to earn more. I have to try and do the same thing. Because if I were to work outside the house pretty much all of my earnings would have to go to childcare. So I have to work from home some how.

Because most of the time we do not have enough of it. The less you have, the more it leaves you very quickly. lol Especially when you have got a lot of debts.
