    What is the value of money for you?

    Please share your life experience that taught you the value of money.

    If  you are pretty clear in the head what money means to you then please do share that with us.

    My life experience has taught me that no matter how hard we try a dollar is still 100 pennies, four quarters, 10 dimes, 20 nickels.

    Money is the means to get what I need and want in life. I see money as a symbol of God's blessings into my life. Money is closely equated to health, talent, skill, education, job, family, relationships, and everything that I value in life; all these are also blessings into my life.
    I earn money when I am healthy and with my talent, skills and education or training I am able to have a job that generates income; the income that I can use for my needs and wants and that I can also share when needed to my family, husband. etc. Money is symbolic to stability in life therefore it is a blessing to keep me going.

    Well, I learned that there are really some things money can't ever buy...

    I've learned that spending ten euro on a beautiful dress is the same as spending 100 euro on a jacket for another. I feel as happy with my new dress as he does with his jacket.

    The value of one euro for me is much higher than it is for those who have plenty of money to spend. I've learned I can spend money on either this or that, instead of spending money on anything I want.

    When I had more, I spend more. Now that I have much less, I feel more grateful for the things I can buy. It made me a humble person, knowing I'm very fortunate for the money I still have. Some of us have practically nothing. Some of us don't know what to spend their money on.

    Too much money makes people easily forget about the real worries in life. Too much love is always good, making it possible to share real worries and be grateful for those around you, who make your world a better place to live in.

    For some people money is power-- for me it equals security. But I have found that beyond a certain point, money can give you neither security nor power. Those things come from within not from things.

    I need enough money  to keep a roof over my head and food on the table and I don't care about having more than that.  As my father used to say " you can only wear one coat at a time"  so all I need is one coat that keeps me warm.
