Most times the money that we earn easily or that we get easily are spend easily. I always belive that money that are hard earned have more significant than the easily gotten money. When I was young I used to spend the money that I get, which are given as a gift without know the value. Have you ever spend the money that you got as a gift not wisely or without saving it?

we spend our money easily even if it's easy money or not. for me even i earned my money with all of my hardwork it's just like they just lend their money to me for a couple of days then in a few days they're all gone.. i can't control myself for buying things even if it's not necessary that's why for me regardless of your hardwork or easily earned money, your money will be gone just like a snap.. lol

LOL =D And yeah, that's the power of money.. Once we have got money, we feel good and just wanna spend the way we want it.. All this started from, controlling ourselves too much when we dun have the money, and so once we have the money, we will spend like there's no tomorrow.. lol

hello friend i agree with a lot.I think it is correct if you earn the money easily,meanwhile you will spend it easily too.Maybe it is a constant reason from old days to now. I think it teaches us we should chrish the result we get.Maybe we should meet a great difficult problem on the earning,so finally, when we gain it,we will change our mind to consider it as precious things. For me, i never waste the money randomly.Maybe i have made this a good habit on life.I think it is helpful to me in the future career.lol good luck

i agree with you ajithlal, I used to the same the money which was given to me , when i dont want i spend it. and the time when i need money to do something and when myparents doesnt give me easily then i also spend money in a proper way. It may becuase my mom always ask me the thing i did from that money.. but now i really priorities things and buget them, so that i spend money wisely.

I think sometimes we does not know the value of money we get freely. I think sometimes when we get easy money we spend it unwisely.

I agree, the harder it is for me to make money, the more careful I am. I think, "Do I really need this? Can I make it cheaper? Can I do without? Do I have something like it at home that I can modify?" But when I got money easily, I would see it and I would buy it.

I have also used to spend money carelessly that I get easily and after I started to earn money harder I began to spend it wisely.

its true. you will atleast try to think twice before you spend hard earned money. your labour is connected there. in case of easily earned things, we rarely think so.

I also think that we think twice before when spend the hard earned money. I think it is always great to have hard earned money because we will know the value of the money.

I am also agreed with you. Daily my mother give me money and it is near 50$ a month. I can easily run the month with 25$ but all of that money always spend. But, now I think if I get 10$ this month from mylit, it will not be spent like others. Money which is hard to earn is hard to spend. Thats true. Happy day!

NOt only easy money earn, but as long as it's money, we will tend to spend it freely, because it gives us the power.. haha =D Plus, money is meant to be spent, and even if we save it, we will still need to spend it in the end, except for that it's for emergency use.. hehe So savings in the bank, only meant that we will have more to spend in the future when we earn from the interest too.. lol

Very true. I think that when someone has to work hard for the money they have, they are often a little more careful on how it is spent, and makes sure to make it last, but if it is something handed to you, then you just spend it on anything never stopping to think about if it will benefit you later or not. When I get money as a Gift, I usually try to buy at least one item with it that will benefit me that I can wear or use, and know I did something good with the money. It would be easy to just spend it somewhere not caring what it went for though as well.

I also think that children should be taught about the value of money and hard work at young age and this will helps them to not to spend money easily when they grow up.

Exactly! It;s always easy for us to spend the money especially if it didn't come from us or from our hard work. But if we really worked hard to get that money, we always think twice when spending it.

I also think that if we work hard we will think twice before spending it and if we get money freely most times we will spend it without thinking.

I agree with what you said most of the money we get by gift or we just earned it easily usually we can also spend it easily for we dont value that much money if we have not get that hard.

I think when we work hard for the money, we will know the value of it. When someone gives it as a gift most times we spend them without knowing the value.

Yes I agree with you, when money si easy to get, it is spent without much thought especially if the person knows they cna get more from where the money is coming from. However, when you work hard for money, you value it more and try to be more wise with how you spend it because you know that you have to stretch it. For me, it matters not whether the money is easy gotten or through hard work, I budget all my finances and save for rainy day instead of spending wildly and then ending up broke.

Its hard to earn money through legitimate ways unless you work hard. But then the benefit you know the worth of each penny. So you dont end spending just like that. Whereas easy money , you dont give any value to it. You just spend it for some useless things just because you have money to spend. I would always prefer money to be earned in the right ways so that I know its value and I would respect it.
