Question: How much money would it take to make you happy!?
Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy you the kind of misery you prefer!. ~Author UnknownWww@QuestionHome@Com

I used to think that materiel possessions would make me happy!. But after getting some of the things I desperately wanted, things that I thought would make me extremely happy, I've realized that the only thing that will make you truly happy is people!. Money will please you at first, but eventually you'll need your friends, family, and significant other to make you happy!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

None!. I mean, I want to not have money be a big issue in my life, meaning I don't want too much or too little, as both extremes involve too much worrying about it!. I just moved out of my parents house, it was miserable there no matter what I did because it was an abusive environment, so ponies an diamonds wouldn't have made me happy!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

stephen k's got it right--however that would be a lot of cash to burn and i wouldn't feel comfortable with that kind of money because it had to come from someone somewhere!. if i always had a large enough nest egg to do whatever i wanted, i would probably be guilt tripped into trying to give it all to children in Ethiopia but i'd be duped by all the fakes out there (i'm on to you!)
just kidding!. i don't have enough cash to give to people in ethiopia, even if they are dying of worms because there water, when it's not non-existent, is so dirty we wouldn't dare go anywhere near it!.
i'd put it somewhere around a million!. i'd invest wisely (with a little help from my friends) and be charitable, while still funding my little extravaganzas now and then:)
interesting q!. made me realize how money does really make you happy!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

trick question! BUT IT WOULD HELP DARNIT! I would just like to be able to give my parents enough so that they could be independent and so I wouldn't have to support them!. Living with my dad is a drag, but we just can't support two households!. I am resentful and bitter and feel like I can't have more kids of my own because I have to support his selfish broke ***, but then I would hate myself if I didn't!. UGHGHGHG!. So, I play lottery!. If I win I will just give it to him! I always laugh when I buy a ticket because nothing could make my toddler more unhappy than me winning! I am too broke for a nanny, etc!. so her life is far better this way! And I guess I am kind of glad too, because on those hard days, I think I would have hired a nanny and missed all of that wonderful time with her!Www@QuestionHome@Com

there's something in life that money can't buy :)
well, if you had a lot of money you could have all these things but you would always want something more
fashions change, then you have no more money

something's always missing without God!.
isn't it!?Www@QuestionHome@Com

I like the good sentiments about money not buying happiness; but not having to worry about bills and working would make anyone more free and able to focus on the things they really enjoy!. So, without being too greedy, I would say one million plus would do!.!.!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

um!.!.!. a lot!? i mean we are a failing nation!!!! the banks are crumbiling! america ows like zillions of dollars to China! i COULD be fine with nothing if this wasn't a "you-need-money-to-live-place" i mean everything costs some thing so that sucks!.!.!.!.!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
