Gramps- you always make me smile :-). And no, I don't have enough money.

If you had enough money, would you still be working? I think I have enough. My needs are satisfied, my wants get fulfilled a bit at a time. We live frugally, mostly from what we grow & raise. Money isn't everything.

and based on our influences most of us never feel like ok, ok it's enough.

Hell nah. We don't make what we pay in a month, a lot of months. Thank science for a loving family, though I always feel like shit.

definitely no, living paycheck to paycheck. after rent, food, medical bills, and utilities there's basically nothing left for savings. depressing :(

Somehow I spend every cent I have no matter how many of them I have, so yes, I always have enough money. Unless I don't then I just sell something.

I'm not rich, but I'm comfortable where I am in my life right now. I make enough to provide for my family. I don't drive a fancy car, live in a huge mansion, or own a jet, but I am still very happy with my current income. You've got to count your blessings, you don't have it as bad as u think.

Money is made to spend. When people get money, they spend it and then need more money to spend on more stuff, be it wants or needs. People would have enough money if they'd stop living beyond their means

funny how people who make 100grand don't have enough money but some people with under 50grand have enough.


04/27/12 9:54 pm

I was surprised at the results. Often I hear about ppl not having enough money, when really for most of us, if we control our spending HABITS we'd have a little less month at the end of our money.

6 months ago I would have said I have enough. Now we have too many medical bills and there isn't enough pay check to go around. Other than that I have never gone without something I "need."

Hubby wants bright new shiny crap cause he works like a horse.
On the other hand, our kids need braces and I'm working with overTheShoulderBoulderHolders from '03.
What should my answer be?

When you think that most people in the world survive on less than a dollar a day...yeah, then I do have enough money

If you have an iPhone you got one when you had money or it was a gift.

If you don't have enough money, then how the hell are you on this app? If you have an iPhone, you have enough money.

Indeed money is about having enough to sustain your life if you work hard you should enjoy your excess money to a point buying nonsense just because you can is wasteful, donate it to provide others with what they need to sustain their lives.


04/27/12 6:49 am

Do you have enough food? Shelter? Clothes? You have "enough" money then.

in future the government is going to have to take lots more just to pay down the national debt.

We make over 100k a year. It is barely. enough. We have three truck payments. Mortgage and a child. It gets tight. Not much going into savings.

I have no income right now (job hunt not going so well) so I have next to no money. So no.


04/26/12 9:59 pm

Maybe a bit less vague would have been to ask if you are content with your current living standard which is what most seem to answer.

Enough money to pay my car and house, buy food and pay bills but not enough to sleep peacefully at night or go on vacation to Hawaii or even Canada :(


04/26/12 9:50 pm

I'm sleeping in a bed tonight with a roof over my head and food in my stomach. Considering there are so many without that, I'd say I have more than enough.

Not even close. Daddy's only had a job for a few months after being unemployed for 2 years. We're still recovering from bankruptcy. Three kids, on in college, and i'll be going off to college next year. We can barely pay the bills as it is. It's a miracle we didn't lose our house and cars.
