Im intrested to see how many people on mylot can say that they are wealthy enough not to have to worry about money? I would say that at the moment i am poor but i live in the uk, so its not as bad as being poor in some other places. It seems that the "credit crunch" and this whole problem with the banks has hit people all over the world. So folks, what do you think?

Well, I thought I was at least lower middle class, but I think I'm sinking lower than that with the state of the financial crisis. Living on a fixed income really sucks at times like these. The bills get paid but not much, if any, left over for saving.

I'm between poor and middle class, if there is such a thing. I have enough money to take care of my bills and have a little fun moey left over, but not enough to go out all the time or take a nice vaccation. I pretty much live paycheck to paycheck.

I would say that we are in the middle class. We have enough to live comfortably and to save. We also eat three meals a day plus snacks and get to enjoy watching movies,eating out, etc. I wouldn't classify us as wealthy because that would mean that we have enough not to worry where we are getting money and not poor enough not to eat three meals a day. I guess, it all boils down to being content with what you have and to live within your means. If you have enough extra then that would be the time to enjoy your favorites.

tell u one thing most of the people here will say tht they are middle class because its a natural thinking of human being tht they are not satisfied with wht they get...they always want more n more...so i also think tht i belong to middle class...this qualality of human being is only responsible for the success of his life and motivates him to rise high in life...wht say??happy mylotting
