MONEY EXPRESSIONS (1): meaning and examples

Good morning.

It's very common for people to spend a lot of money during the Christmas holidays, unfortunately usually more than they need to. For the next few days we will look at some expression/idioms related to money.

Today's expression is: to be rolling in money/dough

It means: to have a lot of money. Possible Spanish translations for this expression might be estar podrido de dinero or tener uno más dinero que pesa.

Example 1:
I don't know why, but ever since he has been elected mayor of the city, he seems to be rolling in money.

Example 2:
Jack always complains about not having enough money, but in reality he is rolling in dough. He just inherited more than a million Euros from his late uncle.

As you can see, we can use the word dough (masa) metaphorically to refer to money.
