    When does money becomes useless in life?

    Hi, for me personally it would be, If I had so much of it that I didn't have anything to spend it on. Also, is there a case that if you have too much money - and I'm talking in the billions - that life would be a bore? I don't think I'd allow money to become useless. If I ever had too much I'd give it away to charities.

    Money is not what people ultimately want, it is a means to sometimes get [pay] for what they want. If you grow your own food, make your own entertainment, know and have your own herbal medicines, would you have need for money? Probably not, but then again the Government would probably want some kind of tax off of you and it has been hundreds of years since they excepted any thing other than money. So until the Government decides it doesn't need money, you will always need it.

    Money is simply a commonly agreed upon currency for bartering goods and services. If you don't need those goods and services, money is useless. If there is a need for something you cannot produce yourself, then it comes in handy. When the 'wants' overcome the 'needs' then the balance becomes distorted and we become consumers, like a vast furnace burning resources. This is most obvious (to me) in the planned obsolescence in our electronics. It is at this point that money becomes dangerous. The 'means' becomes more important than the 'end', both figuratively and literally. Just my thoughts.

    Money is useless as it can't buy you good health. Money is useless as it can't buy you friends. Money is also useless as you can't buy trust, love & affection with it.

    money becomes useless as soon as you have enough to feel secure.

    In my opinion, money becomes useless in life when it can not provide one with good health or hapiness.

    Money becomes useless when you realise money doesn't buy happiness.

    Money is useless at lot of situations. Money cant get every thing as it is measured as a medium of exchange of goods or services. Your passions, human relations, emotions...etc like human psychological issues cant be bought. Money is useless when it cant save your mother who is at the edge of life. Money is useless if it cant get your broken relation back. If this all is taken to consideration money can be useless at many times. So always look at the money as it has to be looked at.

    When no matter how much you make, you end up broke. It will also probably be worthless in the near future, at least USD anyway. We can all go back to trading millwheels and crops. My investment strategy includes gold and lots of survival gear. If you have enough ammo, you can get a hold of whatever else you might need from those you are less prepared when it goes down.

    we all know that money can't buy happiness, but still we need money to survive.when people lose interest in life and do not want to live, they start feeling that money is useless.we can buy every materialistic thing with money, but the same many can't buy for us the thing which matters most to us.then we feel that money is useless in life.sometimes,in spite being rich we can not save the life of our dear one's,then we feel that money is useless in life.

    When does money becomes useless in life? When it's fruit become a barrier from which you can not walk away.

    If you can not walk away with what you have on your back - it has entrapped you and you have become disadvantaged as one who seeks an after life.

    If your spirit is longing for that which money gave you it will not allow you to move forward spiritually.

    In life there is time & money. Both are important, but time is much more precious. You can always make more money, but when your time is up, you can't buy even one more second on this earth!

    Money becomes useless in a person's life when no one is there with him/her to share the  happiness and critical moments of life. There is more to life then money like love, friendship and family relations. When no one is there to love and care about you then money becomes useless.

    When you die.
    I suppose that it would also be when you are too disabled to enjoy it and have all you need.
    Some will say money can't buy happiness they are wrong. Money can buy freedom and you can't have true happiness without freedom.

    When you are dying or in a coma because you can't use it yourself.

    Money is always useful, until you have so much money you just do not need anymore, probably a good few billion in the bank would be the point at which it is no longer an issue.
