    I'm not saying that I'm poor

    or rich, but I get stressed about money a lot. It's hard to have a huge wedding to plan and a 5-year-old girl to support while I'm just a bartender. Having things be cheaper would be awesome and would really up my mood.

    Seriously, a pair of sunglasses for $100+ when you can buy a perfectly good pair at the Dollar Tree for $1! Outrageous!!!!

    More money more problems - it's

    so true. When you start succeeding, your standards and priorities change. I'm in my 20's fighting car repairs and in my 30's I'll probably be facing home repairs, in my 40's I'll face college expenses for my kids (if I even have mine paid off by then, and in my 50's I'll worry...

    I love Chanel no 5 but I can't afford it.

    Have to settle with white diamonds! Every woman adores this perfume so maybe Donald trump could provide it free as an election promise! What do u think?

    I mean the price on things aren't bad.

    . I can still afford to get what I like. But if it was about half the price , I could get two things !! Doesn't that sound alot better

    after. The only problem with that is there's shopping stores right next to the food places....and Target is always so tempting...

    I'm an artist and well.

    .paints don't last forever. Because supplies can be so expensive...I can't paint as much as I'd like to. It's a real pain when I can't let off steam by the only way I know how.

    Geez Louise! Another golden nugget of truth!

    Especially if your currency is the South African Rand... Currently 1$ (One US Dollar) is the equivalent to R15.1456 (South African Rands) AND 1 Pound is the equivalent to R21.3675 (South African Rands) Take a moment and try and comprehend how screwed we are economically

    Namely childrens' shoes!

    Just paid £35 out AGAIN and they'll no doubt only last 2-3 months before my son's outgrown them again! Surely there should be a government subsidy, although it is important to care for their feet. I'm just dreading when he starts "playing out" and scuffing them with football...
