Yes i easily get irritated when i am broke especially if i need to settle or buy something really important and was not included in my budget. It's really hard to survive in a busy city without enough money, that everytime you move, you need to spend a penny. You think of different ways atleast to earn or have an extra money before your next pay check arrives.

Hello, I understand what you meant here... well, I found one thing that work out for me and it is really helpful when I need it. I always put give my piggy bank a $1 or $5 everyday... just thinking that I spend on food or something. and once a while, I open it up and use the money, but I never use all... I put in saving or some where that I dont remember. To do this to save money that I never know... so give it a try and it might help you out though. living pay check to pay check is hard and I know how you feel when you really need to buy something.

I really hate being broke. What I try to do is put $50 from every paycheck into my savings account, before I do ANYTHING ELSE, even before I pay the bills. That's an extra $600 a year in savings, and then I forget about my savings, pretend it doesn't even exist. That way the next emergency that comes up, I have money. I only "borrow" from myself, keeping track of what I borrow from savings, and making sure I pay myself back (on top of the $50 a month I put in anyway) as soon as possible, even in installments ($75 per month for example, so my regular $50, and $25 extra on the balance I owe myself)

Hello Mchavez. No I don't get upset when we don't have enough money. We live from month to month on a fixed income. It is wise to plan ahead for all the things we need. We may not have the money for what we want but God always provides the things we need. We leave our worries in Gods hands. He gives us what we need and most of the time what we want. But if we have to do without we only do without the wants not the needs.

Yes because everyone will want me to go out with them, and I cannot do that because I do not have the money to. I frustrates me because I have to pay bills and take care of my medical expenses, and I have little money left, if any at all, to do anything else.

i think that it is irritating to be low on money, but you should try and focus on what you do have to keep from losing hope. if all you focus on is the negative aspect, you will always be broke. staying positive keeps you motivated to change the world you live in.

..Hi mchavez11, If you don't have any money, and I do mean any money, I don't think you can keep from being irritated. For one thing you are going to be worried about where your next dollar is coming from and how you are going to pay your bill that is going to be due. That in itself is stressful, and stress tends to make you irritable. Having money or knowing where you can put your hands on some money quickly, such as a bank account or bonds you can cash, makes one less stressed and therefore less irritable, I would think. Those who are broke and are not irritable are people who I feel are secure with the notion, that money is not so very necessary in life and that they can survive without it for a period of time and I think they are the happier for that. Take care.

I think everyone gets a little irritated when they are broke. I know for a fact that it pisses me off, because I have allot of bills to pay. I think this also has to do with why people become criminals. Sometimes in the poorest of places people who dont have access to work have to resort to violence to get money so that they can eat and survive another day. Just something to think about.

no, i do not get easily irritated when i am broke.. I am optimistic about things.. I plan for the next step ahead to meet my needs.. Its very natural that you have that feeling especially when you have a lot of stuffs to worry about.. Maybe a deep breathe and an optional plans you can consider to at least prevent some worries.. Worrying much will give you much headache..Just take things one at a time.. and start the day with a smile..

Ah, yes! You have to limit your spending and some days, the money seems not sufficient, so, you have to sacrifice what you want and only use it for what you prioritize most. Then, you don't have money to spend to enjoy and you will end up being irritated. Yes, there are days like that, that's why we must save for rainy days, which is not easy to do especially when most of the things needs money.

I know I do. I feel miserable and dejected. I feel guilty that I cannot provide as much as I want for my family. This makes me turn on my computer and try to earn more and more online.

I've never been broke, but when I'm short of money I get pretty irritated, as nowadays we seem to need money for everything. Being short of money makes me feel uneasy, and that's a very unpleasant feeling, so I'll begin thinking of ways to make extra money to get rid of that feeling.
