Money, to me Wayne, is an important means that makes my everyday life possible. To me personally, the purpose of money is to serve as a storage of value that can be exchanged for goods and services that will be needed in the future. The function of money to me, however superficial it might sound, is to serve as " tickets" to goods and services that I want and I normally use it on things that I would like to have but don't have yet.
I do not have an allowance so I would have to ask for money every time I feel like buying something. This meant that everything I buy is parent-approved. How much I receive is completely dependent upon my parent's views on the object of my desire. If they felt that it was completely useless, they might not give me any money at all. On the other hand, if they did feel that this object would do me more harm then good, then chances are, they will most likely be giving me the money as long as it is within a reasonable price.
I have been blessed to be born in a caring family would could very well support me and provide for me, therefore, despite the fact that I know money is of great significance, I don't always put it as a top priority. Due to the fact that I have no allowance, I don't want or need more then what I have now. I do think, however, that I can get by with less money spent on me from my parents. Perhaps instead of buying drinks from the outside I can pack water in used water bottles, instead of buying brand new textbooks, I can buy used textbooks.
I would be willing to cut back some luxurious expanses for money. For example, I might decide to not go to vacation in an expansive place or stay in an expansive hotel simply for the sake of saving money. I would not be willing, however, to cut back spending on things such as the life necessities.
