    Hello there I work as an educator

    and I think the salary is not worth it. I need to pay for my sister's fee, for on-credit motorcycle, for the room that I rent, for food. Besides, I also donate some for my nephew and niece whose father passed away last year. I feel proud as I use the money not only for myself...

    Tree Money...sign Me Up :)

    I wish money grew on trees! I would plant me one...lol  When I was a little girl my dad used to ask me if I thought money grew on trees and I always said it should!!  However, if money grew on trees would it have the same meaning as it does now?  Probably not.

    Oh, the things I could do if money grew on trees!!!! I could quit stressing about how we're going to pay for our wedding for one thing. I could also go back to school and not worry about how it would affect my future financial situation.

    Do not deny that money controls your life.

    The sooner you realize this the better it is for you. Money is more and more relevant in today's society. There's more **** you can buy with money now then ever before but the poor is getting poorer and the rich richer. This world is ******.

    I'd Plant a Tree Everywhere!!

    but okay...lemme put this out there. Money is paper right? And paper comes from trees. Soooooo [if you think of it in my way] money DOES grow on trees. If I'm wrong someone please tell me before I go on the news or something and tell the world my theory.

    We Would Not Need It Then

    It would be nice if money grew on trees but if it did then we would not need it anymore.  I could do so much if I had a tree like that.  I know it would not bring my happiness but it would make me more comfortable.  Of course if it ever did none of us would see it...

    I Wish Money Already Printed Grew On Trees

    In a way money does grow on trees as it's made from paper and paper is made from wood which comes from trees but that paper has to be printed.   If money already printed grew from trees  I'd buy a house and a plaza  and donate some money to the spca. I don't know what I'd do...

    Money Tree Taxes?

    Of course I wish money grew on trees,  but then I wonder who would control the trees.  Would you be taxed on your money tree and then you'd be forced to go underground and plant your trees in hidden rooms with gro-lites?

    This Is How I Think It Would Be If Money Grew On Trees

    I betcha if money grew on trees it would be safer for the environment because we wouldn't have to cut down trees to make paper. We could use the money to get the materials to make our own man made paper. Another thing is, there wouldn't be any debt because we would always...
