    @theone99: I’m the same way. It drives me crazy because logically I know it will all work out okay and worrying won’t fix anything. My husband is a major spender…so I wish I could transfer a little of the worrying to him lol

    Hardly ever/depends on what’s happening in my life. I obsessively worry about other things, but not money.

    I said depends on what’s going on. I’m very fortunate to had a steady job that pays very well, so I know my bills are easily covered, so it’s not bills or day-to-day life that I worry about. What I worry about are my student loans. I’m in debt $150k from undergrad and law school, and while I make enough to easily cover my payments (I put enough extra towards them that I basically make double payments), I still worry. It’s such an overwhelming amount, and I just want to be debt free and buy pretty things. haha.

    Every damn day. My job fell through, so I am unemployed. My parents hardly make anything, but they do their best to help cover my bills. With groceries and gasoline, I’ve had to dip into my pitiful savings and grant money. I obsess over every little coupon and sale at the grocery store, and I hardly buy anything else.

    Waaaaah. Can I have just some time of my life where I don’t have to fret about money?

    I don’t worry about money per se, but I do think about it several times a day. 

    I play with my forecasting and budget ingspreadsheets as a way to past the time!


    However, I am 36 now and when I was 26 I worried about money a lot.  I never had enough and I was married to a douche who had no idea how to plan for the future.  THAT was stressful.

    I worry about money a lot. I quit my job last month because of conflicts with school and so FH is the only one with an income right now. I’ve applied for financial aid to help but it hasn’t come in yet and we’ve got some bills due.

    I say 2 or 3 times a week now that my Darling Husband got a muuuch job. Up until then it was every minute of the day lol.

    He says he only worries when big bills are due but more worrisome when things break that we didn’t budget for.

    I said it depends on what’s going on in my life. Usually it’s when there are changes or big events, like the upcoming wedding, and my decision to fix up my condo, and moving to a new place where I’m not yet used to the cost of living. During this time, I’m number crunching pretty much every day or every other day. Not so much worrying, but more like trying to come up with a good number to keep the costs under so things are still manageable, and then looking for other sources of funds for when I go over budget. And my Fiance is the same too, he’s always, “We’ll be ok”. Sometimes I believe him and stop thinking about it, other times, I just ignore him 🙂

    I have never worried about money. But my fiancé is pretty cheap (doesnt need to be, but he is) and he rubs off in me sometimes. I do love finding good deals on wedding stuff!

    I worry a lot… But it’s more about saving money. I never worry about money for everyday expenses or even if something weere to come up like a medical emergency or a car problem. However, I do worry about saving my money for a house. The avg price of housing where we want to live is 700,000.00 so we need 140,000.00 just for the downpayment..And seeing as how our current house is 130,000 TOTAL we know it’s going to be difficult. We have a 5 year plan to save for the entire downpayment but it really makes me nervous 🙁

    Man… If I can ever get to the point where I don’t have to worry about money at least once day… I’d consider myself successful. I don’t even want to be rich. I just want to be comfortable.

    I’ve gone from riches to rags and back to riches again in life. I had some devastating financial setbacks about four years ago, and at that time I was extremely worried about money and the future.

    Then I met Darling Husband. During most of the time that we dated, I had no idea that he has substantial assets because he is not a flashy person who throws money around. He drives an old but well maintained car, lives in an average house that was paid off years ago, and lives below his means. He never hires someone to do work on the house or car if he can do it himself. He has saved aggressively his whole life and it has piled up. Around the time we got married, he showed me his financial papers and assets, and my eyes about popped out. I wouldn’t have blamed him if he had asked me to sign a pre-nup, but he didn’t.

    He has helped me tremendously in getting back on my feet. I feel so blessed. But I still would have married him if he only had two cents to his name. I just adore him.
